She does a great "Hi-5", signs all done, shakes her head no when she doesn't want something, makes the ambulance or fire truck siren sound, makes a petting motion for live animals and those in books...yes, she tries to pet the book, and does a grunting sound for counting to three before running a race in the house. We run from the front door to the couch, and sometimes the back door.

We had Family Home Afternoon Thursday. Gideon is a HUGE fireman, fire truck, ambulance fan so we scheduled a tour with the station closest to us. He and Ayla were really nervous at the beginning, but warmed up a bit before the tour was over. We have some amazing people providing emergency services in our area...and we are so grateful they were able to give us a tour and let us sit in their fire truck. We also got to see the living quarters part of the station, where they relax and eat meals, and sleep when they aren't on a call. One of the firemen rang the bell you can see on the front of the truck, and they also turned on the ambulance lights for Gideon...Ayla loved them as well.

We get the most awesome hair creations with soap. Wednesday night she had one that was right on top of her head, just like the troll doll hair from the 90's....or maybe it was more similar to a unicorn's horn...either way, it was really cute.
This is how she helps on the computer.
Friday for breakfast she had three friends share her cherrios and chocolate milk.

For Valentine's day we did our 5th date for 10 years of marriage. The purpose is to try new things that we otherwise wouldn't normally do. Tonight we went head to head in a little shooting range competition. We each shot 2 guns each, with 4 magazines at 2 different distances, 20 and 25 feet, per target. Green Valley Range was a really fun place, ten minutes from home...an extra bonus since we normally go out in the desert about 20 to 25 minutes away. We also tried Freddy's Frozen Custard, a yelp.com 5 star dessert. We love trying new things!

Ayla learned how to take off her shirt. Ammon made a poster to cheer on the Broncos last week. He was pretty bummed when they lost. We had a Superbowl party at Debbie's. Ayla was loving eating the yummy food while sitting on my lap. She loved the deviled eggs and potato salad.

We went to the mall tonight and were surprised to hear lots of loud drumming. We walked around until we found the source of the sound. At first Ayla was very excited and wanted to pet the dragons. Then they came close to us and she got scared and cried for a while. Gideon also high-tailed it out of the stroller when they came close. He refused to get down from me.
