Yay! We finally got our internet up and running! A nice man named Doug came and set everything up for us today, and I pretty much feel like I got an apendage back, I've been lost without my daily dosage of blogging, emailing, and all other things internet. So thank you Doug. You saved my life. Also, new in the world of the Ben Quinn family:
Maggie has started potty training!!! We made a potty chart (don't laugh at the effort I put into making such a pretty potty chart... Maggie needed some inspiration- and frankly so did I) and we put a sticker on it every time she "goes" on the potty. She gets a special treat when the chart is all filled up, and we're more than half way there... so exciting.
Ben and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary on Friday. We left our kids OVERNIGHT with Ben's mom and headed up to Lagoon to their Frightmares celebration- all things Halloween. I hadn't been to an amusement park for ages, and sans kids I almost felt like a single, care-free gal once again. After binging on cotton candy and riding roller coasters until our necks ached, we headed down to Salt Lake to The Gateway, Salt Lake's outdoor shopping mall. We walked around, got some dessert, and then went to a movie. Afterwards we drove over to the Radisson where we enjoyed an uninterrupted night's sleep (and that's all I'll say about that...). It was so great!
Here's us on our wedding day, 5 years ago...time flies!
