and you have to walk around with your arm up like this to help with the pain...
and take lots of pain killers that make you really tired.And then you have to wait 10 days to see if the tip of your finger reattaches itself or dies. If it dies, then you're left with a short finger that doesn't have a fingernail on it.

So, I had been planning an awesome date that included sleeping somewhere since we had never been together over night without our baby since she was born - 19 1/2 months.
I don't think he was too pleased with my performance.
Next, our enemies - they look really mean.
But, looking mean must work, because they beat us. I blame it on my pregnant state.
After running some errands and going to a sad movie, it was time to go to our hotel....
It was the Campers' Suite located in the heart of Logan Canyon. At least it fit our blow-up bed in it (barely).
We ended our fun date with a morning hike.
We enjoyed having our date buddies with us.
Too bad it ended so fast!

We went swimming at Downata Hot Springs - very kid AND adult friendly - impressive.
Remember when we wore lifejackets like this?
It lasted about 1 1/2 minutes.
After a full day of swimming and going down slides not recommended for pregnant women, you get pretty worn out.
Alexa couldn't even make it through 5 minutes of me getting dressed.
We stayed the night at a lodge close to Clifton. We ate homemade ice cream...
and had a cow judging contest. You look at cows in a magazine and rank them from 1st to last. I guess I missed out in high school when I didn't join the FFA because I totally lost. Alexa even beat me. Brad got 1st place, which makes sense since he went to nationals in cow judging in high school. But don't worry, he shared his prize with me - some Papa Jay's jerky.

We had to start off the evening sitting directly in the hot sun while watching the parade. Here's Alexa with Grammy Mumford.
Brad showed up in time for the rodeo to start. LOOK EVERYBODY - he's actually part of our family again!
It was too dark to get pictures of the riders, but they did pretty good. The bull riding winner got a score of 88, which is the highest I've ever seen in real life. It was cool.
