An evening hike along The Great Salt Lake
Had to get this guy near some water
When parenting remember that the threat of Ebola is just as effective as ice cream in terms of leverage.
Instead of hitting the gym this morning I took the dogs for a long hike up into the foothills. As you can see here Chuck was just thrilled about it. The Former Congressman is old, yes, but he’s healthy enough to keep up. He just doesn’t *want* to keep up. I stopped here to give him a breather while
This tree is so committed that it keeps a toothbrush and a bottle of contact solution at autumn's house

Smug LAKE City. Get it right. “@sourcrepes: @dooce didn't know you resided in smug city, usa”
Just verbally disciplined two unsupervised children in a waiting room. Because biting them would have been illegal.
This tree is having a hard time committing to autumn

So many thanks to my cousin who helped me with my kids the last two days as I face several pressing deadlines. These kids here are included in those thanks because I took a small break from my desk and walked them around the neighborhood this afternoon. Kenzie, you are at the core of my village and
Drop offs are going somewhat better, I'd say.
Just got cut off by an SUV with stick figure decals of the family on the back window. IT IS NOW MISSING ONE DECAL.

Today on my website I write about the honor I have to work with the strategic and brilliant team of @everymomcounts who is advocating for women around the world. Many of you have helped bring change to a community that so desperately needs it. (link in profile)
10yr-old: Why did you start doing yoga? Me: We as a country don't breath the right way. 10yr-old: Did you really just say that out loud?

It's blurry but you get the idea. Every night we hold a dance party in the kitchen. Tonight the soundtrack was Leta's favorite, "Shake if Off" by @taylorswift

What to do on a rainy weekend? Why, a movie, of course. In pink furry boots, heart-shaped sunglasses and a sequined scarf DUH.
She likes to "type" so I open a text document, crank the font up to 96 and let her go. Just now she typed every letter on the keyboard from left to right and when she was done said, "This is definitely Chinese."

Major props to my herding dog who just busted a scumbag in the act of trying to break into my garage. I'm buying her a whole chicken.
Would you look at that hand spanning an octave? If she grows up to be crass and obnoxious like her mother it won't matter because her exquisite piano playing will distract you.
I happened to look out the window toward the end of my flight home today and saw the familiar Green River snaking its way through the landscape. I thought we were definitely over Utah at that point but after some research on google maps found out that I was lucky enough to have peeked out right as w
Traveling home from yet another incredible trip with the brilliant team at @everymomcounts. Bon wit, Ayiti. Until next time. #whatispossible #maternalhealth
Landing just now at JFK (thanks to @etthornton who was occupying the window seat)
A couple of days ago we visited Maison Fortuné Orphanage in Hinche, Haiti. I handed the girls my phone and didn't see it again for another 20 minutes. This morning I was going through my photos and found about about three dozen of these. Ah, the universal selfie. @everymomcounts
The courtyard outside the in patient services at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais, quite easily the most modern and well-equipped medical facilities in all of Haiti. It was built by Paul Farmer's Partners in Health and opened in March 2013, serving over 185,000 people in the Central Plateau. It's

This is Lac de Péligre, the second largest lake in Haiti, created as a result of the construction of a huge dam on the Artibonite River in 1957. While the scene is unquestionably gorgeous its existence displaced a large population of peasant farmers who once lived in the valley upstream. This won't
This is the basic structure of a future community birth center that Every Mother Counts is helping to refurbish in Cabestor, a rural town in the central plateau of Haiti. In partnership with Midwives for Haiti, EMC will also fund equipment, supplies and its first year of operation. #maternalhealth #
