Spring/Summer 2012 Update

Jill has lost her desire to update our blog regularly, probably because she now has an iPhone where she is updating with Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, etc, etc, but she did promise that if I made a post she would get back in the habit of updating more regularly.

We have been having a great time the past few months, spring came early in Idaho and it has been beautiful.  We've spent a lot of time exploring the mountains and other fun things out here.

In May the only professional female cycling event in the US came to Idaho, we were able to see 3 out of the 4 days of the race, and it was amazing.  

Stage 3 of the tour was a brutal day of climbing for the racers and so we took Wyatt and Jude to the top of the 6,000 vertical foot climb, it was awesome.  BTW, this was how I thought we should setup our camp area to watch the race, see below for Jills idea, much, much better.

 Jill was VERY excited
 Jill thought we should combine our camps, she is a genious!
 Blue Steel?

These ladies were insane, going about 14 mph when they passed us, the girl in front was the "Queen of the Mountain"

The ladies were going slow enough that they would smile when they heard Wyatt and Jude cheer "Keep going guys, you're winning!"

Wyatt and Jude were so excited, whenever a team van would drive by they would stop and throw them something, they ended up with 2 hats, 3 water bottles and a bunch of racer cards.

This photo was taken right before Wyatt decided to urinate without warning us first, he ended up splashing all over the lady behind us who was wearing flip flops, it was great!

Jill was ready to go home until she saw McDreamy who was there to present the bouquet to the winner.  The race was a blast, many of the worlds top female riders were there and we'll be watching them in the olympics next month. 

Time for Summer haircuts

Wyatt and Jude had been asking to sleep in the tent for months, so we finally decided to let them have their first camping trip.
Awesome camping spot that Jill found

Summer cuts being put to good use.  More chips please.

I HAVE to use this sweet throwing form to avoid dislocating my shoulders
Kirkham Hot Springs
Water in the hot springs was around 115 degrees, the water in the adjacent river was about 40 degrees, we mixed them together and had a nice 95 degree hot tub.

We also got a little off roading and hiking in on our campout, the boys loved to run and hide around a corner and then sprise us. 

OK, I did what I promised, and now Jill will return to updating this blog more regularly.
