Living up the last of 2009

We've been busy making the most of the last moments of 2009. Creed and Larry spent an hour and a half shoveling snow because it's Creed's favorite new activity, and he still cried when he had to come in.
Then the last day of 2009, we got together with my family to take Logan and Creed to the Kangaroo Zoo (a local business that is full of inflatable toys for the kids to enjoy). We've never attempted it before because Creed is not a brave soul (which makes my life a lot easier), but Logan has no fears and we thought his bravery might rub off a bit. At first, he stuck to the bounce house and left Logan to go on the big slides on his own, but Logan was a good sport about playing on some of the less intimidating things with Creed.
And after some help from Aunt Marissa, Creed warmed up and loved some of the smaller slides
It was so fun to watch Creed and Logan run around together.
And I was proud of Creed for venturing out of his comfort zone (although he let us know there was no way he was going near any of the really big slides)

You'd never guess they are cousins, would you? They are opposites in every way, but they have really started to have fun together.
After they tired themselves out, we headed to J Dawgs, a perfect last meal before everyone started their New Year's resolutions to be healthier!
And guess what? Jay himself served us and said there may be a J-Dawgs in Salt Lake soon!

And what better way to end the day than Sweet Tooth Fairy Cupcakes? And they are opening in shop in Salt Lake in a few months. The news just keeps getting better and better!
I'm glad we spent the last day of 2009 doing some of our favorite things with our family because 2010 started with a cold that makes me feel like my head is going to explode. Aren't colds the worst when you are pregnant and can't take anything to make you feel better?

this may be late, and i'm hoping you're already feeling better, but if not, there is a line of herbs that can be used during pregnancy called 'wish garden herbs'. they have a great cold remedy that i used while pregnant.

and i must say, that cupcake is serious- looks very yummy!

Looks that you had fun in inflatables. I also love to spend quality time to my son and it is always fun.
