I certainly haven't been blogging. I have managed to stay busy in search of huckleberries. I have loved tromping through the hills in search of the perfect patch. I love lodgepole pine trees. I love sitting on the side of a mountain watching them move in the breeze. I love huckleberries. I've made huckleberry cheesecake, huckleberry muffins, huckleberry pie, eaten frozen huckleberries, I LOVE everything about huckleberries.
We have also been a little busy with grandkids. This past Saturday we went to Utah and watched grandchild #2 be baptized and confirmed. What a great day!
We brought the 4 grandkids home with us so their mommy and daddy could take off for a week to celebrate their 10th anniversary. We have 4 small people for a week.....ages 9,8,5,3.....what were we thinking?
We decided to take them on an adventure and go through Jackson Hole, Wyoming and drive through the park and end up in West Yellowston, Montana. We stayed the night in West Yellowstone. In fact, we are still there.....I love the internet.
I thought the kids would so totally be blown away with Jackson Hole. The town square is so cutesy.
No so much. However, they thought the little candy store in Jackson Hole was awesome. You get to pick up a basket and fill 'er up. Mercy, that wasn't so smart on our part.
We thought they would get a kick out of the geysers and hot pots in Yellowstone...not so much....
They did like Old Faithful, it was pretty spectacular.
We thought they would think the town of West Yellowstone would fascinate them....not so much. However, the pool at the condo was sooooo awesome.
So after 9 hours in the car with 4 children grandpa and I decided one thing: Kids haven't changed much have they?
We are having a blast with them. What a fun chance to spoil, bond and enjoy them.
We'll be heading back to Utah with them tomorrow and will stay there with them so they can go to school, cub scouts, soccer practice, soccer, dance lessons......it makes my tired ache to think about it.
