Taryn had no trouble adjusting to solid foods. She just loves the flavored puff stars.

Today was an adventure....... we were heading to Maylie's preschool and got lost. I don't know if any of you have been on the 495 Beltway here but its's a huge circle. There are all these other intersections that go off the 495 Beltway and I just happen to pick the wrong one that put us in no mans land (meaning I didn't know where we were). I prayed and prayed that we would find our way. Just when I was about to give up we found the right street that lead us to the right area. It only took an hour to get to preschool but we made it. When I got home from dropping Maylie off it was about time to go and get her. I had just enough time to feed Taryn and grab myself a sandwich then we were off again. The traffice here is horrible and plus there are too many trees in the way. I can't see were I am going. I need to be able to see everything. I got used to Utah. I will adjust someday but for now I will just drive with half blind folded. (figure of speech)

Today was Maylie's first day of preschool. She had a fun time playing and doing crafts. There is a total of 6 kids in her class.
I need some help! I am desperately looking for new recipes for dinner. I find myself having the same meals over and over. If you have any easy, quick, not a lot of cooked veggies in them (that's for Joe) then I need to have them. Amber-you can just give me the recipe for the rolls. That would be great. If you want to email me, email me at Thanks

All the buildings are connected under ground (House of Representatives, Senate and the Senate offices and the Capitol), which makes for a long walk if they didn't have the train. It was a tiny train with big windows so you can look out. We all enjoyed the ride.
We found our statue. We instantly found Brigham Young. He was the only man with a beard.
We are standing in the center of the city.
After the Capitol tour we went to the Natural History Museum. Maylie loved it. Brittany- Maylie kept saying that Brian would love this place. I don't know where she got that. Maybe they talked dinosaur/animal stuff before.
Maylie was eager to pose by the aniamls.

If you can tell Joe is in front of a Mammoth. Those things are huge without all his skin and fur.
