Between a Funeral and a Wedding Reception

Brigham and I had been promising Lydia we'd feed the ducks and go on a picnic "in a minute" ...for a couple of weeks.

We took advantage of being on the east side of Salt Lake between a funeral and a wedding reception, and made good on one of our promises by spending an afternoon at Liberty Park.

Lydia was able to somewhat appease her slide addiction. Going up, going down, over and over again. They make her so very happy. Perhaps, because it makes her feel as though she is flying.                                                              

Ammon was very unhappy at first, but after a much needed siesta, he chippered right up.
Lydia cried when we made her leave the slides. Until we introduced her to the water. Ah, her second love.

She piddled through the paths of water and then plopped her bum down on a bridge and contented herself with splashing around.

We contented ourselves with the view of her cute purple underwear poking out.


Brigham got a hold of the camera and here's what happened. ME. Manning the stroller.

Lydia was pretty upset when we said we had to leave the water to feed the ducks...
So she buried her woes in a hamburger bun :)

When we gave her the bread to feed the ducks, she exclaimed, "Thank you!" and promptly took two large bites out of it. Obviously, she didn't quite know what was going on.

But, with some guidance, she soon realized the bread was for our feathery friends.

While the birds were fed, Ammon decided he was hungry as well and found that his carseat tastes quite delicious.

Oh the things my kids do :)

We had fun, we had drama (it was both kids' naptime). We had sun and we had rain (we had to hide out under a house porch during a short rain burst). We had good birds, we had bad birds (the evil seagulls tried to hog all the bread and pecked at the ducks if they got close). We came and we went.

And we hope to return soon :)


  1. I really like this made me happy :)

    You got some really cute pictures and it looks like you had so much fun! I wish we had been able to join you...maybe the next time you go. Tim and I LOVE Liberty Park. I wonder if the paddle boats are up and running...

  2. The paddle boats are up and running. I love this post! I love being with my family

  3. Such a fun afternoon! You have such cute kiddos!

  4. The very heart of your writing shilst sounding agreeable at first, did not settle very well with me personally after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer but just for a while. I nevertheless have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one would do well to fill in those breaks. In the event you actually can accomplish that, I will definitely end up being fascinated.
    Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply can do with some% to force the massage house a bit, however other than that this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
