Week Twenty-Five

-Ironing 101. -Happy Father’s Day! Mason made this lego card for Jim. We had all the grandparents over for dinner. -Summer Camp Week! Jaxon was not to thrilled to head off to Scout Camp. It gave me great comfort when his scout master texted me a picture of him having fun. Carson could not wait for Hockey Camp every day and Mason went to a Lego camp one day and took it upon himself to plan “Grandma Camp” for whoever wanted to come, Grandma couldn’t say No. It consisted of a couple sleepovers and some trips to the Dollar store! -Lagoon with the DuPaix’s. -after 5 years Mason was excited we finally got some cherries on our tree! -We took the boys hiking up to Mary’s Lake by Brighton Ski Resort. Jaxon decided to stay home having just returned from scout camp. The boys had a blast. It was alot of fun!

Swimming Goggles, Slip-n-Slide, Snow Cones, Lagoon-A-Beach, Friends and catching snakes! -Carson got new hockey skates. -I was able to go to Mona, Ut. and see my cousin Janette and her cute girls Emalie and Makenna. We haven’t seen each other in over 10 years.-Another day at the ball park wasn’t enough Jaxon came home and hit balls with our neighbor Noah “Bootie”. He likes baseball about as much as Jaxon. -Mason is actually enjoying the ball park this year and comes prepared with a lot of activities. -Easton’s favorite song, “Take me out to the base-ball  game, Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and cracker JAX-ONS, I don’t care if I ever get back. It’s root,root,root for the Bandits. If they don’t win it’s a shame. For it’s 1-2-3 strikes your out at the old base-ball game!”

-When the Tournament was over we headed to Coor’s Field and watched the Rockies beat the Dodgers! We sat in “The Mile High Seats” The row of purple seats measure 1 mile above sea level, Easton loved that they also had a playground for the “little guys”! -On our way home we took the scenic route thru Rocky Mountain National Park. It was Beautiful! We hiked to a waterfall, played in a stream, had a picnic, saw elk and moose and at the very top pass that was more than 2 miles above sea level there was still ALOT of snow! -Mason and Carson started Summer Hockey.-Jim and Carson worked all day to fix the water fall and we got a bad pump.
