slot canyon and a cat encounter

About 15 minutes from our house is the tiny town of Kanarraville, UT. When I say tiny, I mean tiny. Up one of the local canyons is a beautiful slot canyon we've been meaning to hike. We hiked for about 3 1/2 hours and Emery loved going in and out of the water, ducking behind the trees and even liked climbing up and down the waterfalls... after she was done being scared. Needless to say, my hips were not happy with that much hiking and I was sorry we didn't do it sooner, but glad we didn't wait another week (since I was fine the next morning anyway!). I think Bloop may have put up more of a fuss had we waited any longer.


i know you like that my belly is in this picture. ha.




and the cat encounter.... emery got bit by a cat. twice (or maybe 3 times). what seemed like a docile neighborhood stray suddenly bit her after she and her cute little friend had been playing with it for 1/2 an hour. random. she's on antibiotics and animal control is going to pick up the cat today to quarrantine it for 10 days and make sure emery won't need rabies shots. ahh!! i really don't think she will. i think the cat had just had enough of 2 almost 2 year olds. moral of the story: i would say don't let your kid play with stray cats, but em's pediatrician said that his housecat will bite his kids if he's had enough of their playing with him. we'll go with: don't have a cat at all. i don't like cats anyway, but now i feel justified! these pics don't really show it well, but you can kind of see the little holes in her arm from the teeth. poor girl. i think she's kind of proud of her bites though. she keeps talking about it. :)

Those are cool pictures! And also, by the way, Mom and I think you should name Bloop, Vann! We really like that name!

I like how when you turn to the front you can barely even see the belly. Cute. Yeah, Vann Wilkinson sounds awesome.

Britt, it's been a while since I mosied on over here. I took one look at your pic, and said "how far along is Britt?" then I did some reading. You are about to have that baby, and you're in a slot canyon. I can't believe it. I too am preggers, see, and today I stood up for too long, and had to sit down immediately because I had a back spasm. You are truly an inspiration to the rest of us lazies who haven't even fit in a slot canyon for a while now. I'm proud of your strong body! I would've kicked the cat. I already want to kick cats for the most part. Good luck coming up here soon with your sweet boy! I say Vann or Warner for what it's worth!
