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!
