Jen took the kids over to play at her old elementary school and convinced someone to let her in to find her picture on the wall.
At Christmas, we tried to do lots of uniquely Kansas City things–like the Paul Mesner Puppet Theater with dessert at Winsteads.
We hiked up to Cecret Lake (yes, cecret with a “c”) up above Alta ski resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon. Pretty easy hike for about the first 2/3, and then it gets pretty steep. Emily absolutely reduces to ride in a baby carrier backpack, so I carried her a good portion of the way–mostly she wanted to walk and do it herself.
