Crazy days!!!

Okay, so the last few days have been crazy! We returned from our little vacation to Bear Lake which every mom knows means LAUNDRY. I am trying to get the house in order for Grandma Marilynn to come and stay. Tyler and I leave Thursday for our little trip to Lake Louise, Canada. We are really excited and are grateful for our parents chipping in to help with the kids! THANK YOU! It will be a short four day trip, but we are looking forward to what we hear is "one of he prettiest places on earth". We will be sure to take pictures and post them for all to see!

The basement is coming along and should be completed in the next couple of weeks. Paint has been the hardest part...how bold do we really want to go? I stayed pretty neutral - primer is up and the rest will follow next week when we return. Carpet will follow shortly after and we will have a nice, big, EMPTY basement. I am excited to start filling in the gaps with furniture though we still have blank spaces upstairs - I am sure it will take some time!

Today we went and visted with my Grandma Evy. It was a fun hour. Nick slept and Austin was into everything but I think we entertained her for a minute! In the car on the way to Grandma's house Kylee was asking all sorts of questions - she wanted to see pictures. So, when we got to Grandma's she asked her to show her pictures of Grandpa. It was a really sweet moment. She is continually asking about Grandma, maybe she senses the lonliness. I need to a better job of helping her understand and know a little bit about her Great Grandpas that have passed away! Anyway, it was fun to see them interact. The kids are growing up too fast!
