yesterday, we had the pleasure of meeting up with my good friend jessi and her two gorgeous boys, and what better to do on a 100+degree day than go ice skating at the Olympic Oval, home of "the fastest ice on earth." Kira sped around the track, and daddy, cam and caleb managed not to break any bones.
after a few hours we were all ready to thaw out in the late afternoon sun. while the big kids swam, elsie and jessi's youngest, grant, posed for pictures! they are only a few days apart...jessi and i have kept up with each other's blogs since we both had them so it was so cute to watch them interact. so neat to see the stringhams in real life. :)
on the way home, chris broke out the tripod and tried to catch the setting sun as a backdrop for a family pic, but the sun wouldn't cooperate. i still love how this one turned out though.
when we got back to the cabin we popped over to watch some local artisans make some cool looking glassware. caleb was particularly enthralled with the proceedings and has decided that this is what he wants to do for a living.
another fun day planned, we're visiting the american crafts headquarters (one of my very fave companies!!) and then heading off to park city to meet up with jessi and family. here's the last pic chris took yesterday, with elsie in her favorite position, my arms!
she's been such a trooper with our erratic schedule... i can't wait to see her expression once we get home. :)
