Locks of Love

Less than a week ago Elizabeth suddenly told me she wanted to get her hair cut and donate it to Locks of Love.  I love her hair--love it!--but I know it's hard to handle, so I agreed. Here she is before:

It came all the way down to her waist!

Here she is getting ready--she was really excited, not nervous at all:

And here is the "after":

She is thrilled!

Generation 1.5

In March our family made a quick weekend trip to Salt Lake City, Utah. We went for a temple sealing, but instead ended up in the emergency room at LDS Hospital up in the Avenues.  Happily, it wasn't one of the girls, but it was one of the relatives, and she had to deal with a dislocated shoulder. Not at all fun for her.

While we waited, we took the girls to B Street Park. This tiny park is on a lot that I think once held a Victorian house. It's a ten minute walk from where I used to live and I took my older children there many times. It's hard to explain how much I loved taking my second set of children to the same place my first set enjoyed so much.
