a good mother's day...

the boys took me to grand teton park for mother's day...
there was snow everywhere and jenny lake was mostly frozen

which makes sense because jenny lake was formed by a giant glacier that came thru these mountains
and decided to stay in this spot

and after both guys have been thru 4th grade idaho history, they were both very pleased to inform me that the lake got it's name from beaver dick's wife... who knew?!

perfect afternoon

spring in idaho is a fickled thing
sun, snow, rain and lots {lots} of wind

but yesterday was good...
today, my friend and i were talking about the behavior patterns from 2, 3 and 4 year olds that repeat themselves in tweens/early teens. and i said {maybe annoying my dear friend} that i was lucky because we never had the terrible twos or threes.

they have always been really fun to be around--most of the time. and i know that they are starting to stretch their wings and pushing for independence, but the thing is that although the guys have been going to this park for most of their lives (on visits even before we lived here), they still love coming to park on sunday afternoons... even with us. i can only pray they grow into young men who are as sweet as the toddlers they once were.

i'm kinda hoping that the behavior of giving mom hugs and kisses starts repeating itself too!

(oh, snap, now i'm crying...)
