The Elders are working on their cooking skills each friday when they make bread. This day I showed them how to make cinnamon rolls. They were amazed at how easy it was and that you can cut dough with a piece of thread.
I'm not sure how many they ate that day before they left the house but they were all full of bread when they were done.
The forrest really filled in fast this year due to the very warm winter we had. I only shoveled snow 2 times. It is going to be a dry summer if we don't get enough water. So this could be the only time we really have green grass. We don't have sprinkler systems here like everywhere else. If it doesn't rain things get a bit brown.
Let the playing begin., roasting marshmallows, making mud pies in the mud kitchen, swinging on the swings, catching frogs, scootering around the streets.
We made it through 3 new states for the g kids. We left Colorado early on the 3rd morning and drove to Kansas City Missouri. Driving through Kansas wasn't bad. We gave it 1 thumbs up. Compared to Wyoming that will never get a thumb ever. Missouri was a 2 thumbs up . We made it to the temple open house and then toured the church sites. It was a cold, rainy and windy day. Pictures were not high on the list for the day.
We quickly got out for a picture and hurried back into the car for the next tour of Adam ondi amman and Far West. There is a great little country store just up the road from Far West. Highly recommend you go. Straight north on the road of Far West. Can't remember the name of it though. We were prepared to leave Independence and the second puking happened. Aubrey wasn't so lucky to have a nifty throw up bag....... We were on our way to Iowa to Grandma's House.
Day 1: Mesa Verde , Colorado. After a few hours of trying to get out of Salt Lake we made it to Southern Colorado about 9pm. To end the night just 10 miles to the hotel the puking started. We had a nifty puke bag for poor Sissy. (the kind you have in the ER) She filled the thing pretty good and we kept the car clean. Yea!!! Sissy felt lots better.
Day 2: Early the next morning we drove up into the mountains to see the dwellings. It was an amazing site. The kids enjoyed the area. Aubrey and Isabelle did the tour with their Mom. Zander , Baby and my self stayed back due to nervousness on our part weather Zander could handle the responsibility. We probably woke the dead with wailing and nashing of teeth when he was told he wouldn't be going on the tour. We had a long talk about it and decided he would be ready for the next one.
Ranger Clyde was their leader and loved to tell stories of the early ancestors.
He was a big boy and watched the tour go on with out us..
