I am in Park City, Utah. I am not skiing, bob sledding, or riding the skeleton. Although, I can peer out my window and see the remains of the once active hub of the Winter Olympic Games.

I am in Park City, Utah. I am not skiing, bob sledding, or riding the skeleton. Although, I can peer out my window and see the remains of the once active hub of the Winter Olympic Games.

I am visiting my children, their spouses, and four grandchildren, for a few days.

I had never met my new grandson, Allister. Allister is four and one-half months old.

Allister and I had quite a bit of talking to do. We hadn’t talked, since his birth. He is such a cutie. From our conversation, I learned that Allister has had many experiences in his 120 days on this earth.

Together, visited the Hogle Zoo, with all the kids. While the group was in the reptile center, I sat outside with Allister and we discussed his feelings toward snakes and reptiles. He talked and I listened.

A few days before, we attended a Park City visitor’s church. While enjoying the Sunday Service, 2-year-old Carter pressed 911 on his mommy’s cell phone. I watched his mommy’s reaction and her race out of the chapel.

Now, that was funny. Talk about speed!

Cade is the next grandchild in age. He is 3 and rough and tough.

The home we are staying in has a hot tub; the grandsons call it a “hot pool.” Cade said that he did a cannonball in the pool.

Somehow the adults’ discussion of the skeleton and the Winter Olympic Games made Cade think that there was a skeleton under his bunk bed. Cade looked under the bed and in the closet, several times before bed.

I reassured him and then, we had prayers together.

Then, there is Dallin, my big 5-year-old and kindergartner. He is tall like his mommy and daddy.

He loves soccer and basketball and he’s pretty good.

As for me I’ve been running up and down three levels of floor chasing grandkids, bathing them, cooking for the family and taking out the trash, every four hours.

Well, I need to wrap up. Jared and Emily, just bathed Allister and we are headed for his first pictures. He’s smiling. His tummy is full. He’s had his nap so we need to run. Good moods don’t last long.
