Funny Story....or Not? I'll Let YOU Decide

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to laugh or cry at this story? So I will tell you and you tell me what you think....
So, last week Eli had a rec league basketball game which was at 8:30, which is really cutting it close to Mr. G's bedtime, but because my son is in LOVE with basketball or "foop" as it is know around our house and in love with his Dad, I decided I would be a "nice" mom and let him stay up a little late to watch his Dad play foop. Turned out to be NOT SUCH a good idea. For about the first half of the game I was fighting a screaming child who wanted to run down on the court and play with his dad. But, after the first half, there was another other court right next to the one Eli was playing on that was just sectioned off by a curtain and wasn't being used anymore, so I took Grady over and turned him loose on that court while I set in the middle of both so I could watch Eli and keep an eye on Grady. Oh how smart I thought I was! With about two minutes left in the game, I am watching very intently Eli's game and not so intently Grady, when I hear my little man say, "Mama, ut oh", I immediately look over at Grady who is walking very cautiously over to me when all of a sudden I see what he is "UT OH"-ing. Mr. G, who has recently found it interesting to stick his hands down his pants, front and back, had his cute little hands covered in what he likes to call "poo poo". I was dying. I had left all of my stuff, including wipes, over by all the people, and this was my first time in this place so of course I had NO idea were the restroom was! By the time I had finished cleaning him up, the game was over and Eli was out waiting for us. It was sort of a nightmare, but also kind of funny as well??!!! I told Eli that Grady had lost his "Go to Dada foop" privlideges for a while. My child! :)

Happy Halloween!!!

We had a VERY fun Halloween! I think that I had forgotten how much fun Halloween was when I was little, and kids help you remember! Grady was a cute little monkey and had a blast trick or treating. After one door he had gotten the concept, except he thought that once the door was opened they were inviting him in, but he happily walked from house to house taking his handful of candy. What a funny kid! We had a family Halloween Party too that was a blast! We hope that everyone had a safe and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Slesk Family 2009 Annual Park City Trip

So it is now an official annual trip. We have done it for the last 3 years, and hope that we can do it EVERY year, our trip consists of a drive up AF Canyon and then around the Alpine Loop which drops us down in to Provo Canyon through Sundance and then we drive up through Heber and on to my favorite place in Utah, PARK CITY! It was a gorgeous drive which always reminds how beautiful of an area we live in, and gave us some time away from everything (exept for the fact that Eli kept getting score updates on the football games that were going on every few minutes, can't live without our college football!) :) Here are some pictures from our trip:

We were in the middle of no where (notice the lack of road) and WE LOVED IT!

The back of Mount Timpanogos.


And the bottom of Park City Mountain Resort. We ate at a really yummy Mexican Resturant that is just behind us.

So for anyone who wants to join us next year, just come on down, up or over to Utah in the middle of October and we would love to bring you along!

HeY HEy heY, Summer 2009 Where did you go?

*I started this post about a month ago, but haven't quite finished it, but I thought I would give you a little something new to look at. I will do a new/finish another post sometime soon??!!

We have a had a CRAZY summer. So much fun, work and play! Here is a little picture journal of a little of the Slesk 2009 Summer (just a warning, it will be a little long!).

Val and I ran a 5k. It was a BLAST! ANd NO that is not Val's sweat, she dumped water on herself in case you were wondering. HA!
Ate some cake with Heath to celebrate his big number one. The poor little guy was sick with croupe on his birthday. Nothing a little cake can't help with.
Went to St. George for a wedding and got to enjoy the 110 degree weather. Thank goodness for swimming pools and congrats Trav!

My little brother Ryan got home from his mission the beginning of August (I didn't take pictures but Val did on her blog if you want to see), it is so good to have him home and hear his cute little Spanish accent! To spend time together my family decided to all take a trip to Miami. We had a blast! Here are some pics from that trip:

We went to the beach it was fun. It was also Grady's first time, once he realized that we don't eat sand, he had a much more enjoyable experience!
We hung out at the house. Grady likes to rock the shades, but only for about 10 seconds!

We went to a dolphins game. Grady had a lot of fun dancing, clapping and pointing and yelling "cackle" or tackle as we know it. Miami was fun, we will definitely have to go back!

We also got to go to the zoo. I think that I enjoyed it more than Grady and Eli, for some reason the zoo just brings out the kid in ya!

Aloha! Hawaii Vacation

We were able to spend a week in Hawaii and leave Grady with Amma & Papa up in Washington. We had some fun, definitely got some sun, and tried to make the most out of our time there. Here's some pictures.

Waikiki Beach was the first beach that we went to.
The next day we visited Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial. That was a neat experience. They showed us a pretty touching video before we went out to the memorial.

That same day we were able to hit up a couple of beaches on the North Shore as well as visit the Dole Plantation.

The next couple of days we did a mixture of beaches and hikes. The Beach pictures are at Kailua Beach Park. The water is nice and blue there and pretty calm. We ended that day by going to the night show at the Polynesian Cultural Center. It was cool. Worth the $10 we were able to get in for, but probably not the $50 it usually costs.

Our favorite hike was to Manoa Falls. The falls weren't all that spectacular, but the hike was beautiful. It was like walking through the jungle. We tried to get some good pictures, I'm not sure they do it justice though.

We took a lot of pictures. Here's just a few more. Thanks Amma and Papa for watching Grady. As you can see, we were pretty tired after the busy week of vacationing.
