May 23-29: Minnetonka Cave, Memorial Day and Stan's Preschool Program

May 23.  The kids were pretty excited to be at the condo even if the cool weather meant we weren't making a trip to the beach.  They jumped on the pull out couch to their heart's content.  Bryce found Kimball several pounds of worms while on his run.  And I remembered to bring a craft to pass the time.

For lunch the condo association hosted a potluck BBQ.  The boys got filthy and soaked playing in the sand, but that didn't stop us from heading to Minnetonka Cave in Idaho.  Kimball was so excited because it's a bat cave.  We even saw a bat (pic below)!  We went in the cave 1800 feet and down 350.  Stan was a trooper and Abby rode on Daddy's back.  Due to the spring rain there was a place in the cave where it was raining.

May 24.  Sunday we went to sacrament meeting across the street and then had a nice relaxing day watching movies, making cookies and popcorn, playing games.

May 25.  On Monday we cleaned the condo and then headed home.  We met the cousins at the Salt Lake City Cemetery and then went to John and Jill's for a BBQ.  Tilly stole Stan's blankie.  She is a cutie.  It was a nice way to end a nice weekend.


May 26.  On Tuesday Stan had his final preschool program.  He did such a great job!  We are so proud of this growing boy.  After we went to lunch at Burger King where they were supposed to have Slugterra toys in the kids meals, but they were out.  :(  They did, however, give us a rain check.


May 27-28.  We have some robin's eggs in our yard but haven't seen the mom in a while.  We fear they may have been abandoned.  On Thursday I drove around to two different Burger Kings trying to cash in our rain check.  We found the toys and the kids were happy until they realized that there was more than one kind of Slugterra toy at Burger Kind and wanted to go back.

May 29.  On Friday we made pizza's on the pita bread bread from Costco.  They are my new favorite.  The Thai chicken is amazing.

May 16-22: Fossil Hunting

May 16-21.  Life has been so busy that I haven't done a good job keeping up with blogging, as a result, if I didn't take a picture then I have no recollection of what I did that day.  I only found one picture on my camera for the week until we left on our trip.

Fortunately I am not the only one in the house that takes pictures.  Bryce captured this cute one of Stan with his new under the sea toy that I bought for the trip to Bear Lake this weekend.

Bryce also bought a bee suit.

May 22.  We set off for Bear Lake in the morning with the idea that we would stop somewhere near Kemmerer, WY and fossil hunt.  Not five minutes past Park City and Stan needs to use the non-existent facilities.  So we pulled over and Kimball found a decomposing deer.  He was so excited.

We made to to Kemmerer.  Unfortunately the weather had been rainy and the quarries were closed.  We did however make it to the Fossil Butte National Monument and found a place where they had some shale for the kids to try out.  We got rained on a bit but made it to Bear Lake safe and sound ready for a relaxing weekend.  Bryce went on a run and some some hawks.

May 9-15: We like bugs at our house

May 9.  Last day of swim lessons.  We also had Brad and Heidi over for dinner which is always so nice, even if I don't take pictures.  While Heidi was on the way out her pregnant nose noticed a smell of gas.  We called Questar and discovered that we had a pretty bad leak.  Fortunately it was outside of the house and they fixed it quickly.

May 10.  Dad made his cookies with the kids.

May 11.  Abby and Stan have discovered the sun roof and like to peek out while we pick up Kimball.

May 13.  Kimball found some baby spiders hatched by the house.  We went to the park after lunch.

Kimball called this his "hot tub".

May 14-15.  Kimball took some pictures of bugs outside and lost a tooth.
