A few nights into Avonlea's hospital stay, the boys and I were really missing each other. So Greg and I arranged for Aunt Emily to come sit with Avonlea while the rest of us went out for a family outing. We went to City Creek mall. We looked at all the fountains, ate in the food court and played around in the dinosaur play area. It was a great night, lots of fun and a good stress reliever. And as a funny side note, I realized on this outing that both Palmer and Brody call volcanoes "jalapenos." I corrected them when they asked me to take a picture of the "jalapeno" on the wall of the play area. They both insisted that I was wrong in calling the flaming mountain a volcano, and I easily let it go. They are too cute and this stage of mispronunciation is almost over. I want to enjoy their fun idioms as long as possible.
