Getting out of town.

Lately...we hit the road on Friday and get out of town. This weekend...we ventured off to the Schell's house in Lander, Wyoming. They recently bought a new house and there is a whole guest wing.....*the basement. The house is rad...something out of a James Bond movie with original tiles and flooring...and it's soooo kid could literally roller-skate downstairs....don't put it past me on my next visit.

We arrived Friday night just in time for spaghetti....yum yum. Whitties had a pretty good car ride...the last hour I was a sucker and climbed in the back to entertain him.

Saturday was a relaxing day buying plants, veggies and hanging baskets for Rene's yard...sipping lattes from the local coffee shop...taking WHITTY on his first bike ride....we borrowed bikes and slipped into town like bandits on horseback...we laughed all the way there.....*partly because the Schells are smaller people and we are TALLER...and the bikes were built for was a sight.

Saturday night Jordy cooked up some lamb that we brought from was TO DIE for..melt in your mouth...delicious. Even Whit had some and couldn't stop eating it....he loves lamb. We always have creative things going on at the Schells because they are both so creative and fun. They made blueberry pies over the fire...and they were mmmm...mmmmmm....goood. I could easily eaten two. I didn't.

Every time I am in Lander..I beg RENE for sewing lessons...or to teach me how to do this time...she told me to pick out some fabric and that she would show, supervise, TELL me how to make Whityn some pants....and I did it. It was soooo fun and they are soooo cute. You will be impressed.

This morning we celebrated Mother's day...*my first! Jordy made it very special beginning with a card and some TRASH mags...(he hates when I buy this was a BIG buy) my card, he wrote that I can order an athleta outfit...and if you don't know this should. He also bought me a new CANON poweshot on the way home which is exciting because I am a picture taking fool. So instead of stealing my "school" camera for the weekend..(which is what I have been doing) I will be back in action taking photos again..yeah!
The boys also fixed a wonderful breakfast...complete with powdered sugar waffles....a "local" latte for yours for both girls....and service too. WOW. What a nice morning.
THEN...some really good news got delivered..."WE are buying a POP-up camper"...a used 93 Jayco....our friends' friends are selling one and we have been wanting one and it's the right price and wha-la!!!!! I am excited to head back over to lander in the next two weeks to pick it up. Yeah for SUMMER camping....FALL camping...Spring camping...maybe some winter camping too. I can't wait.

**REALLY good stuff***
Whityn turned 9 months on Friday...he is a happy little guy...very very VERBAL...always talking and loves other kids.....loves to play on the floor....very content that way...loves to be chickens...dogs...loves to be sung too. His new favorites are "Sing a Song of sixpence", Row your boat, Ms. Mary Mack....eats meat now..such as LAMB..loves EATING a ritz cracker right now...first time...loves it...there is not much food he doesn't love to be honest with you....would probably eat anything...YIKES. He is sitting up and turning around...scooting on the floor...not crawling...don't know if he is anywhere near it...I am quite okay with it...I want him to wait 'til I am out of school so that I can see it first....he loves balls and blocks...and music...ME....hehehe....waffles...*he had his first one today....he says momma, dada...a lot and lots of other things I don't understand, but pretend too. He is so fun to be around....we love him so much.
