a new room to play in

we finally have a dedicated space for the boys.  after a couple of years of fisher price decorating my family room it is back to normal, with the exception of the straggler toys that get brought down from the loft.
we went and bought a bunch of cubby shelves and storage cubes at target and went to town organizing and carrying everything up.  the end result is an awesome organized space for the boys!  the cost was totally worth it.  to be organized you have to have the right tools and it is not the most inexpensive solution but after two years of crazy bins and unorganized "toyness" it was worth every penny to me!

we had a great time in yellowstone catching up with family from washington.  we got to meet our cousin jaron for the first time.  cousin chris was nice enough to crawl into this mock wolf den with us at the bear and wolf rescue in west yellowstone.

we had a great time climbing all over fallen trees and exploring in nature.  this is when we had a lot of energy at the top of the great falls.

then our little legs climbed down 300+ stairs on uncle toms trail so we could see the beauty of the falls. we were especially excited about the rainbow we saw coming down. we went about 3/4 of the way down and then turned around to start our long journey up.  brady made it the whole way up and down on his own and cousin chris only carried logan about 100 steps up.  so proud of both of you for doing so much up and down on your own. (by the way the boys napped awesome this day!)

we waited patiently for old faithful and were less than excited when it erupted.  brady said, "it looks like a cannon mommy."  then we were off to explore the pools and other geysers.

we referred to many as baby pools and mama pools and were told that it did not smell so good around here but overall enjoyed our adventure.
our favorite part of this day was ice cream.  by the way meg.  i am a BIG fan of huckleberry ice cream.   YUM!
