The next day we went up to Minnetonka Cave. We walked up and down 888 stairs, it was an even 40 degrees throughout and stays that way year round. The kids did great Kris and Josh got carried most of the way. Needless to say we all got a workout and learned some stuff. Our tour guide was a big cheeseball but we decided that he really liked his job. Other than that we just relaxed.We had some great food and for the most part the kids had fun. There was some occasional whining, crying and fighting, but i think they enjoyed themselves.
Mike and Jamie made a really cool "blast furnace" which is basically a tin can, you put in in the coals of the fire and melt aluminum cans in it. Jamie started it, Mike perfected it. It was really cool. Kevin timed how long it took each to melt, the fastest one was 3seconds, i think. Some dumb camping fun. This was after the kiddos went to bed, don't worry we aren't that bad of examples.........

Well it's been awhile since I posted, things have been busy! A couple weekends ago we headed up to the Park City Art's Festival. My boss lives up there and told me about it so I thought it would be something new to do. We walked around for a bit and this is a picture after the boys did the kids arts and crafts, they had lots of fun. Noah made a cool hat and kristopher made an elephant. After walking around we went and played at the Park City Mountain Resort. There were a bunch of blow up slides including this King Kong verses T-Rex, Noah thought it was awesome, Kris took awhile to warm up. Me and Noah also went down the Alpine Slide, it was awesome. They've added a bunch of fun things since I've been up there a roller coaster on the mountain, zip line and a bunch of other stuff. Both the kids were asleep within about five minutes after leaving to go home, they had TONS of fun.
We are getting ready to go camping at Bear Lake next week with Jamie and Mike. We'll be there about 4 days, much needed vacation! Noah starts the second grade on the 25th. He got to go pick out a new back pack last weekend and a few new clothes;which he thought was awesome. Noah is so excited to go back and see his friends. Kevin is dealing with the heat at work, their factory gets up past 100 degrees most days. My job has been busy hiring, training and just dealing with the day to day stuff. Kristopher is just hanging out enjoying being 2, not sure that we are enjoying it. He's seems to be going through the terrible 2's some of the time, good thing he's cute.
We've also been enjoying watching the Olympics. I'm trying to get Noah to watch,he thinks some of it is cool but usually just gets bored and leaves. Me and Kevin are big Phelps fans, the swimming has been awesome. I'll post again when I've got something interesting to say. I have my TEN year reunion this weekend, I think I'm going to go to the afternoon picnic, it would be nice to see a few people....wasn't really that big of a fan of High School.
