Last Week

Was gray and cloudy. It was typical weather for January in Northern Utah. But it was really the first week this winter that has been that way. It was long and depressing and by the end of the week, I was going crazy! On Friday I decided we needed to get out of the house.
So in the morning we headed to Walmart. I let Corby play in the toy aisle for over an hour. He enjoyed every minute of it and so did I. He loved sitting on this tricycle and almost was able to make it move. I'm sure he'll be getting one of his very own (perhaps in a more manly color scheme) for his birthday and he'll be a tricycle-riding pro! He insisted on wearing the helmet the whole time.
After his nap, we headed to the duck pond at BYU. He loved feeding the ducks pieces of bread and chasing them around the boardwalk. And then when he had had enough of that, he walked up all the stairs by himself. (If you've ever climbed those stairs, you know what an accomplishment that is for a 1.5 year old!)
When it was time to go home, I decided to drive by my freshman dorm. I was pretty sure it had already been demolished, but it was still there. (If you haven't heard, they are replacing Heritage Halls. Article here.) I had Rog meet me there on his way home from work, so I could take one last picture with the place that was my home for the first 9 months of my BYU experience.
{Goodbye Rogers Hall! Thanks for all the great memories!}
On Saturday morning Rog started his GMAT class. Corby and I braved the rain (which later turned to snow) and got much-needed haircuts. Later in the day, I got to go on a Corby-free shopping trip. I finally broke down and bought some new maternity jeans that fit me now, so I don't have to feel like a lazy bum wearing my pajama pants all the time.
Thanks to the haircut (which has given me new motivation to actually do my hair), new maternity jeans (which make me feel like a human being again), and slightly better weather (we saw the sun this afternoon and were able to go on a walk), this week has been going a lot better than last week!

Goodbye Heritage Halls - Guess I'd better get a photo by Fugal Hall before it disappears!

Yep - looks like it's about time for a tricycle for Corby.

What a good lil' stair climber he's turned into!

Excited to see you all very soon!

Please don't let my son ride a pink and purple tricycle. It's just not fair to him.

Goodbye Kimball Hall...all i remember is i was pretty crazy by then...

Hey, if Corby wants a Hannah Montana backback or a Dora the Explorer bike...shall he be denied...? Hee! Okay, i get it, it's GI-Joe all the way...and the original...not that new junk that's out there!

Love the pics, so adorable, as always!
