Lincoln Paul Thiriot

Our Little Christmas Surprise

So Lincoln decided he didn't want to miss Christmas and subsequently came three weeks early. Even though he came so early he still weighted 8 lbs 2 oz. I started having contractions at 12am Monday, we went to the hospital at 6am but got sent home. We went back to the hospital at 5pm that night and were admitted.

Lincoln was born on Tuesday December 20, 2011 at 2:55am. He was and is the cutest little baby boy in the world!!! Melissa and baby are doing great despite the new sleeping schedule that me and Melissa are adjusting to. We are spending the Christmas holiday at the Peterson home this year and have greatly enjoyed having Melissa's family around during Lincoln's birth.

Zion National Park

Between Winter and Spring Semesters Paul and I decided to take a quick trip to Zion.

The first night we got there we just had to hope that we could find a campsite, since the only place we could reserve was an extra hour long drive. Luckily for us, on the second time we checked, someone had cancelled their reservation on Zion's Watchman Campground.

It was so windy our tent almost blew away. We had to lift it back onto the tarp a couple times before we got the stakes in.

Paul really wanted to have 'Hobo Dinners' while we were there...this is the result.

Yes we did eat it. Surprisingly, it didn't taste that bad if you avoided the charred remains.

These deathly switchbacks were on the way up to Angel's Landing.

The path up to Angel's Landing, so called because a minister said that only an angel could reach the top.


Chilling at the top.
At the top of the climb we had lunch. There were a lot of chipmunks up there, and despite all the signs saying to not feed the animals, it was pretty apparent that they had been and were not at all afraid of humans. Paul finished his apple and put the core on the ground by his feet. A chipmunk came up and started nibbling on it. Then it picked up the whole thing that was about half the size of its body and jumped off the cliff edge.

My Favorite: Switchbacks

This is my last picture with my BYU Lacrosse hat. I didn't want my neck to be burned, so I was wearing it backwards. We were going on some switchbacks when a random gust of wind (that lasted approximately 2 seconds) blew my hat off my head and over the edge of the cliff without even touching the ground. We ran back down to below to find it on the switchbacks but it was GONE!!!! We never saw the hat again.

Our Life :D

This is what Paul and I have been up to lately:
We are making some head-way on our dresser.
And we went snowboarding!!!! It was Paul's first time EVER and he was surprisingly good. He did not even fall off of the ski lift when getting off.

The Conquering Hero

 Paul's binding completely came off his board so he had to ride down the board like a sled.
