I have learned a few things from my boys in the last 48 hours. First, I stink at bocce ball in comparison to them. Second, Noah is a rockstar hiker (ok it was only a 2 mile round trip but he did great). Third, give Jason some wood, tin foil and a campfire pit and he can cook up some great chicken. And finally,Noah is a very friendly kid and it doesn't matter where you hail from (today it was two kids from the Netherlands) he will be your friend!
On another note, Jess was definetly with us today. We had a picnic lunch down by a mountain lake and before we knew it a female deer was standing not 20 feet from us eating. She didn't get spooked or anything and stayed with us til just before we packed up and headed back to the car. Lisa and family, this was our butterfly spot number one!
