The Skog Family Week in Review

THE LATEST PICS FROM THE PORTFOLIO OF WORLD RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER, P

These week's installment of random pics by P include many of missing heads and KG reenacting the infamous Bigfoot photo.



LIL' J IS A BIG EATER

Lil' J continues her foray into real food this week and Wheels found that the best way to calm her down was a Ritz cracker and she enjoyed the crap out of it everyday.



IT'S A HARD KNOCK LIFE FOR TOOTS

Toots has been obsessed with the 1982 film version of Annie lately. We tried to get her on camera performing her stirring rendition of Dumb Dog to no avail. Because of this we put her to work and in case you are wondering the floors did indeed shine like the top of the Chrysler Building when she was done.



P AND TOOTS ARE IRON MEN

Should I be worried that the favorite song of P and Toots is currently Iron Man by Black Sabbath? Last weekend while running the usual errands I flipped the radio over to KBER 101 just as Iron Man was beginning. Soon enough the girls were in full on Wayne and Garth mode headbanging like Bohemian Rhapsody was rocking the stereo in our Mirthmobile. Ever since then P has asked me to play it again so I broke down this week and put it on my mp3 player. The following video was about the 5th time we had listened to it in a row. I especially enjoy Toots' interpretive dancing at the beginning of the clip.




HIKING THE BIRDSONG TRAIL

Every Saturday since P has returned from her visit to Nevada she has asked, "Can we go hiking?" This week I gave in and we headed up to the Birdsong Trail, which was listed as a very family friendly hike. Wheels' problem is that she wants to head right out and climb King's Peak rather than baby step it with the kids. Birdsong was perfect for our needs and I recommend it to any family with kids under 6 or so. As evidenced in the pics and videos below we encountered wild berries, 'raging' rivers, a 'waterfall' and a 'lake.' I use most of those terms very loosely.












Just as I feared that P was straying completely from her Skog roots and becoming 100% Wheels she gave me this excellent post hike interview. I reckon the Skog legacy is still safe for a few more years.

Hey, remember one time up in Logan we went hiking?
I think you cursed my name and made plans on moving that same day.

Hiking? That wasn't hiking. That was pull off to the side of the road in the canyon and arbitrarily walk up a 90 degree slope without a trail. My legs burn and my eyes weep just thinking about it. We weren't roommates yet and you're lucky I still agreed... haha.
