Funniest thing about Spring Break

It seems that Colorado has a pretty early Spring Break. Luckily it coincided with a business trip to the Big Dog cabin in Island Park, ID (right near Yellowstone). We dropped the boys off at my wonderful in-laws house and headed to the cabin with our best friends from Puerto Rico, Rafael and Osiris.

We had a good time snowmobiling (a 6 hour ride) to the top of the "Two-top Summit". It was pretty cool.
We stopped back to the in-laws to pick up the boys, who were happily running through the house with dirty faces and ice cream sandwiches in hand and they were NOT happy to see us. They have so much fun at Grandma's house and are spoiled rotten.

Picture included of boys hanging off the newest apparatus my father in law bought off an infomercial for my mother in law.
Anyways I took the boys over to the park real quick so they could run around for a few minutes before the long drive back. Jett, who makes friends everywhere he goes, was talking to a girl he met on the playground. She was pointing out some graffiti that was on the slide. Then I hear the following from Jett:
" MOTHER F***er.... I think that is the name of the ship that the Pilgrims sailed over on."

His shoe runneth over...

Yesterday I saw Tommy holding his tennis shoe up to his mouth. I thought he was trying to play like the dog again and biting the shoe. Then I saw him drink from the shoe. I went over and the shoe was dripping wet. Tommy had gone to the bathroom sink and decided to fill up his shoe with water and use it as a cup. Today I found his shoe again soaking wet. Maybe its time to put some cups out by the sink....

Time with Jett

This week I got to spend some fun time with Jett. I can't believe that I am old enough to have a kid in cub scouts but when he comes home telling me we have have to bake a cake for the blue and gold banquet cake auction then I guess I am officially a cub scout mom. He decided on a cake with a sports theme. I have never decorated a cake beyond using frosting amd m&m's so this was all new to me. I got some cake decorating tools and we made a basketball cake. I think it turned out pretty darn cool for my first time.
On Saturday Jett and I got up early to go hiking. There is a group that started going in our ward and I invited our neighbor and her son that is Jett's friend to come along. It was hard to get out of bed and pretty chilly but it was such a great way to start the morning.

The red rock are beautiful and less than a 10 minute drive from our house. I never have been a hiker or much of an outdoors girl but I think I could get used to this!
