It seems like I'm always trying to catch up these days! Gee, can't imagine why! Today I went into Shopko to pick up a prescription and ended up getting some school supplies too. I can't believe it's already that time! Yikes!! Where did our summer go?
I'm trying to get us ready for two trips at the same time. We're going to Yellowstone Friday-Monday. We'll be home Monday night & then on Tuesday Trav goes back to work & the kids & I, along with my brother & Scott, head to Oregon until Aug. 2nd. We've got lots of fun stuff planned for while we're in OR and we can't hardly wait to get there. I haven't been to Yellowstone since I was like 12 or 13. Travis has wanted to take the kids for two or three years and this year I finally gave in. Hoping we don't have any kind of trauma while we're gone (knock on wood!).
Yesterday was Caleb's 2nd birthday. I can't believe he's 2 already! To celebrate we went to Hyum Dam with Trav's parents. The kids had lots of fun (as you can see in the pictures) and I only got a small sunburn on my back! ;) When will I learn to sunscreen everywhere?? When we got home Jamie & Robbie (Trav's sister & her family) came over. Nash decided to try & fly off the couch & land on Robbie's back without warning Robbie. Yeah, Robbie got up and moved & Nash missed. He put his tooth through his lip a good one this time. When is that kid going to learn that he can't fly? Not any time soon I suppose! I stayed up reading until 1:30 am (I'm reading Sixteen Brides). At 2 Caleb woke up screaming and proceeded to scream until 4:30 when I finally gave him some Motrin & he fell back to sleep. I called the dr.'s office this morning and got him in. The dr. said on a scale of 1-5 his ear is a 3, almost a 4. Glad I took him in! We got him on Zythromax. Yay ear infections! At least we got in before we left for a week and a half! That in itself would have been traumatic for everyone if I had just brushed it off!
We're planning to have Caleb's birthday party Wednesday night. This year I am making him a dinosaur cake completely out of cupcakes. I'm excited to see how it works. I bought a book that has a bunch of cakes you do like this and there's a castle in there Sam wants in February. We'll see how this one goes first!
I likely won't be able to post until I get home from Oregon, so have a great 2 weeks!!
