Rough Day

Arthur's cold went to his lungs, and I took his wheezy self in to the doctor, where he got a breathing treatment.  He also got prescribed an inhaler, and he loves when mom and dad hold him down to make him take it.

And then, on the hottest day ever, our AC went out.  Fun times.

Boys Hike

John and Dalton went hiking on our first Disney-free Saturday, and saw a rattlesnake!

Cool story, but Dalton came into our room twice in the next four nights, crying about snake dreams.

Cabin Fun

We got to spend several days at the cabin this trip.  It was so nice to send the kids outside to play unsupervised in the wild outdoors.

We bought a inflatable boat and took it out on the reservoir.

And jumped into the freezing water.

 We hiked to Timp Cave with Jodi and her kids.

 Fairy houses in the grove.

Family party and game time.

 Outdoor Boggle.
