School-end camping trip

Hey all, I know a lot of you are celebrating being out of school right now. Paul's last final got over last Tuesday, and he decided that to celebrate, we were going camping! Well, it rained Tuesday, so we went Thursday night instead. It is a good thing we weren't going to go yesterday because we got 6 inches of snow yesterday. That's what we get for living in the mountains. In the 20 years Paul's parents have lived here, they have seen snow in every month but August. Anyway, here are some pictures of our camping trip to Beaver Creek.

Paul found a huge spider here on the rock. It was massive, so he played with it for a while. Gus decided he was Tarzan and just climbed all over the place. There was a little waterfall that he kept climbing up. Paul went over and found him and said, "Wow, I can't believe you climbed up here all by yourself!" and Gus said, "Yeah, your so proud of me huh dad!"

After Max got in the water, he was not very happy any more. It was a bit cold. Here is Paul consoling him, and next to that is Gus crossing the creek by himself, again, very proud of his task.

Here we all are at our camp ground. Paul cooked us the most delicious dinner in the dutch oven, and for breakfast, we forgot to bring eggs for our breakfast burritos, so we had sausage, bacon, and potato burritos, very greasy. We topped each meal off with a s'more. Yum!

Sleeping was a little interesting. We wound up with both boys in our sleeping bags, but Gus slept in for a long time, so we finally sent Max in there to wake him up. Pleasant surprise.

Double picture

Sorry about posting Gus's makeup picture twice. I really have always had a bad memory!
OK , everyone. I just realized I am a total dork, and I didn't know that people could post comments on my blog. I went through today and read all the comments that anyone has been posting. How fun to hear from everyone. I read comments from like 6 months ago that I didn't even know were there.

Things have been going great lately. I have been so hungry. I have been eating like a cow. That is the only time I feel good is when I am eating. Before and after I eat, I am in a constant state of nausia.

Preschool is almost over. I love my kids, but I am really tired, so it will be nice to have a breather for a couple of months. I am really excited about show-and-tell day, and our big pizza party.

I found this picture, where I think Max totally looks like Donald Trump, but Paul didn't agree with me, so tell me what you guys think.

Things are going really great on our house. We have a swing on our front porch now! I am so excited. The weather is so nice now. In a month, it will even be nice at night time.

OK, so Max is 15 months and still not walking. Oh, but don't let him fool you, He knows how to walk, he just doesn't care. The kid is so content with life as it is. He is by far the happiest, funniest baby I know, but please walk Max, because I am really sick of throwing away all your pants because they have holes in the knees, and when we are camping, I would love to be able to put you on the ground without you turning into a complete dust ball. Everyone keeps telling me, oh, when he walks, he will get into everything. He already does! At this point, it would really be a ton easier if he would just stand up and go his own way! I love the kid!
