For all of you

who took the time out of their busy days to send me a text.. and comment of previous blogs about how I needed t o update, here is what has been going on in my life. Nothing of to much interest. But, all still me.

Wisdom Teeth

Most recently, (Thursday) I took a trip to the dentist because my left wisdom tooth was coming down and I wasn't liking to move my mouth to much. The tooth wasn't new, it comes and goes, but the pain was. So, I opted to have it pulled. As long as it didn't take to much time out of my day, I was good to go. 1.5 hours later I was on my way back to the shop with instruction to not drink from a straw and to stay away from carbonated beverages. What?! Blue Monster and coke zero make up 90% of my diet. How as I to survive on water alone? I managed for a day and a half, but I'm back to filling my blood with the carbonated caffeine that I love so very much.
Summer asked me if the tooth fairy was going too come, so of course I asked the dentist if I could keep my tooth. Friday morning with the tooth in my purse, shawn was feeling upset that he was so far behind on his homework. I offerd to let him take my wisdom tooth to school so that he would have more wisdom. He just looked at me like I was crazy and said no thanks

Another belated update

More recently, We took the kids on a quick camp trip. Just Friday. (two days before Easter) We hauled the toy hauler and the quads out to four peaks where the kids could practice their riding skills. From our little spot we rode down to the lake and the kids took a bit of a swim. Shawn is getting better at going on the longer rides. He needs a bigger quad I think, but it's still fun to see him venture of his track and go to a destination. Summer and Gracie had to ride with Dusty and I. They didn't seem to mind.

There were many things to do around camp, like climb the rock wall. ( I told the kids that it was a cow bath tub) Swing from the bucket swing hanging from the tree, and build baby fires over large ant holes.

Blog complaints

There have been a few blog complaints that I haven't posted anything new and interesting....
So, here comes the catch up.

Several weeks ago we took a trip up to The Wooden Nickel cabins in Christopher Creek. There was a little bit of snow still. (hard to imagine now.) The kids had a good time making snow balls and playing on the extra large buffalo. There are fire pits out back and a play ground. Also forest for exploring. We roasted marshmallows and made some gourmet smores. We think that it would be extra fun to get the big cabin for the weekend and have all the cousins come up and play. Snow time would be the funnest. Maybe after Summer is over.
