Camping with Grandma and Grandpa

The boys got to go camping with grandma and grandpa this weekend.  It sounds like they had a great time.  They got rained on, went fishing (didn't catch anything), made s'mores, played card games, and danced around the fire.  Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures to share.

The boys love camping.  They've been going since they were little.  The youngest didn't like it at first, only because he kept falling over and getting dirty, but he really enjoys it now.

The boys love the outdoors and they have opportunities to enjoy them.  That makes me very happy!

Did you have an exciting weekend?

Home Again

We picked the boys up yesterday from their week-long adventure with my parents.  It sounds like they had a wonderful time.  They played tennis, went to the dinosaur museum in Vernal, Utah, hung out with their cousins, flew kites, and went swimming.

When they got home yesterday, the oldest went with me to pick up milk and pizza for dinner.  The entire time we were out, he didn't stop talking.  He was making observations and just chatting away about anything and everything.  That night, while watching TV, it was fantastic to once again have their laughter fill the house.

I'm so glad my boys get to have these amazing experiences and adventures, but I'm also very happy when they come home.  I hope you're all having a great summer!

Finding Friends and Leeches

My boys get to continue their summer adventure by spending a week with my parents.  I dropped them off yesterday.  They are going to have a great time.

On Saturday, before they left, we headed down to the park to enjoy the sunshine.  My boys are the type of kids who find friends wherever they go, and this trip was no different.  The group of boys instantly became friends and went exploring together.  They were thrilled and disgusted to find clumps of leeches in the creek at the park.

All in all, good times were had by all.

Happy 4th of July!

I realize this is late, but I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend.  We had fun in our family, but it was bittersweet.  My boys had the opportunity to spend time with their aunt and uncle in Seattle with their grandma.  I'm happy that they got to experience this trip, but I was sad that they were so far from home.

They are coming home tonight, and I can't wait to see them!  Here's some pictures from their vacation fun.
