 Lexi 'rolling' down the hill. She only made it about 2 feet before she went sideways into the weeds.
 Jack is eating the snow...surprise, surprise!
and mowing the snow

We had a blast tubing with the cousins again this summer. They all fit on one tube and LOVED it!

Jack couldn't get enough of the tractors at the Fair this year. I think he played in this one for 15 mintues. He must be a farm boy down deep inside!

We also had a fun day with Uncle Jas in West Yellowstone. We timed Old Faithful perfectly and only waited about 5 minutes until she blew her top! And you can't not love the stinky "paintpots." Even Lexi kept saying "ew, stinky garbage" :0)

Monster Trucks are the newest cool toy at our house and I figured they be great to take camping last weekend. The kids had a blast driving them on the rocks and through the water puddles right by our camp. The same water that they may or may not have gotten in their mouths which may or may not have caused Lexi to have the runs for the past 4 days... yuck.

They couldn't get enough of the 4 Wheelers either. I think we drove around camp about 20 times. They were content just sitting on them and pretending to drive while I made dinner too. It was beautiful weather and Jack and Lexi got to spend a weekend with Grandma and Grandpa before they leave on their mission.

How do little boys know how to be little boys at such a young age?! Green Playdough was just too temping to just play with. Putting in our nose seemed like the most logical place for it!

We went to Wildhorse Campground for a couple days this week and did our first official camping trip of the summer. The kids were exploring junkies, going everywhere, jumping off every rock and root. Poking bugs, feeding chipmunks and the funnest thing, picking up pinecones and pine needles with the kitchen tongs.
                    Here we are warming up by the fire in the morning after a very brrrr--risk night.

Jack and Daddy had already gone to church and while I was getting ready, Lexi got in my closet and put my boot on and LOVED it clicking on the tile, even though it went up to her buns, what can I say, this girl loves "sthooths" Thats my Lexi and her lisp saying "shoes" . And look at those eyes, they match that sweater perfect!

And what more could a girl need. She's got her Kinky (binky) her Bankey (blanket), her Pincesth (Princess Car) and her Pitty Sthoths (Pretty Shoes). Oy, I'm in for it when she turns 16, or 8 or 3, she is a handful of fun and drama.

That's what 2 year olds are made of...

My 2 kiddos turned 2!! I decided to "go all out" which in my book is a couple of balloons, some fruit dip and pasta salad. I did however summon my "Food Network Cake Challenger" and made Fondant for the cakes. It took me 3 hours to do two little 8" cakes! I would fail miserably if I was asked to do a 4 foot cake. The theme of the party was "Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails, that's what little boys are made of." "Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice, that's what little girls are made of." We had Puppy Dog Tails (Twisty Cheetos) - Puppy Chow Chex Mix - Pixy Stix - Cinnamon Spice Bears.
Presents, presents and more presents. Jack got his "ba-ball" hoop which he about blew with excitement over. Lexi got her Diva Princess dress up quota filled for the year with shoes, jewels, tutu's and purses. And what would Jack do without a new truck? Clothes, books, movies, balls, double the gifts, double the mess and double the Thanks to everyone! We had a blast!
Lexi had another meltdown for this birthday too. Last year she cried through most of the party and then burned her finger on the candle. This year I think she got a little overwhelmed with all the presents and returned to meltdown mode right before the cake cutting. The binky biting might also be her two year old molars coming in - someday I'll throw that binky away!
