A Backpacking Adventure

A month ago Wyatt and and I embarked on an adventure. We went backpacking with two other moms and kids. We had so much fun and so did the boys. The mosquitoes were bad everywhere except where we were, which was surrounded by snowfields. We ventured up Paintbrush Canyon and Wyatt hiked almost 6 miles! I think we are going to make this a tradition. It was an amazing weekend. 

I think this is right before we unknowingly walked by a bear - don't worry grandparents I had my bear spray out because
I heard something big. It was a good lesson for Wyatt to explain that for the most part bears are uninterested in humans.

Happy Father's Day!

For Father's Day we decided to hit the park and camp up in Colter Bay. We packed light - as in we brought no stove or excess food. We knew we'd be going to Leek's for some pizza for dinner and a Father's Day breakfast. The best part is we had a great time, didn't spend a lot of time packing and were only gone less than 24 hours. There's nothing like having Grand Teton in your back yard!

We had smores before our walk so we could burn off all the sugar before bed time. 

We stopped and drew EVERYTHING along the way to the water. 

The water was soooo cold but Wyatt managed to get very wet.

Wyatt's Last Day of School

Wyatt's last day of school was June 16th. He has since jumped right into summer camps. Here are some photos of him with his teacher and class. 
Wyatt received the 'Firecracker' award for being the one with the most energy... always!

Wyatt and Mrs. Goe

W with Mrs. Corrine. She helped him with all of his medical issues and the curriculum as well. We are
lucky she is around to watch Wyatt and few other kids in the class -
she was the one who first noticed Wyatt was having an anaphylactic reaction
 after lunch one day.

When Daddy's Away...

The kids will play! One evening I hiked with Jenn and the kids up Snowking mountain. 
It was a perfect evening and the kids loved it!

Getting Ready for a Great Summer

Before the snow last week we went out and pretended it was summer. Then it snowed and now it's nice again... you can never guess what it's going to be like.
