On the Green

We have been trying to get out on the green a bit more lately. I am no good. but I try. Ryan is a bit rusty from not golfing all winter so Tracker pretty much shows us all up on the course.
He has the best time. He doesn't slow down one bit and is right there with us the entire course. He waits his turn, cheers us on and plays the entire course from his first tee off to his last putt. 
We love being out there and love seeing how much he loves it.

Spring Drive

Still trying to find the time to keep exploring this side of the state. We decided to not plan to go anywhere one Sunday and just drive. We saw some bits of spring popping up here and there but overall we were slightly bored. We will make sure to have a destination next time. Going on drives can always been fun though. Spending time with my boys, talking and joking. Planning upcoming getaways. I always love it even if its not the most exciting things to see.
and any drive where Tracker can spot cows, horses or trains is a good drive for him.

St. Patricks Day

I love holidays... Any excuse to make themed food/decor/crafts is alright by me.
We send decorations home to family and friends every holiday to decorate Kenzie's spot for us. 
I wish we could be there ourselves but they do a pretty good job. 
I have been teaching the kids about colors/rainbows for a couple weeks leading up to St. Patricks day so they thought it was the best thing ever to have a rainbow themed breakfast & the green milk sent them over the edge. We did a few crafts (shamrock thumb prints, fruit loop necklaces), sang our usual rainbow song and called it good. It didn't last more than an hour but it was fun. Tracker wouldn't take off the tiny leprechaun hat which kept me laughing all day. The string kept getting caught on his ear making it bend funny. I think I took a billion pictures of his bent ear... Seriously people this is my life. The things that entertain me... It doesn't take much. I cooked corned beef and cabbage for dinner which is what I have always cooked on St. Patricks day for years. This year I cooked it different and it turned out sooo delicious. 
Love to celebrate a little bit of the Irish in me.

Idaho We Go

Tracker & I headed to Idaho to visit with my sister and her family way back in February. 
Yes I am really behind in blogging. Its about a 7 hour drive from our house to hers so Track and I took our time  getting there stopping as often as Tracker needed. We found a few random and slightly scary parks along the way. Once we got to Lisa's we had a great time. 
We went running/hiking a few mornings, we cooked and got things ready for Sarah's birthday party. We played a lot. Talked a lot. Watched movies. Visited Jamba Juice daily, took a few long drives, went shooting, went to a toy store where out of every toy he could pick- Tracker wanted a baby and a baby bottle. 
My mom came for Sarah's birthday as well and got in Friday night. It was so nice to see her even if it was just for a day. Sarah wanted her party theme to be "Tea with the Emperor" Seriously where does she get her ideas from?! My sister did such a great job coming up with fun ideas and making it such a cute party. The best part was 20 minutes of meditation. Everyone sat there and followed along to the CD perfectly. and that includes Tracker! I about fell over laughing watching him close his eyes, try to hold his fingers and hands like the other girls and sit just like everyone else. Can you believe my sister made every one of the girls a kimono for them to keep? She is the best. Sarah had fun teaching Tracker how to bow which is what he wanted to do the rest of the day every time he would see someone. I loved watching him try to do everything the big kids did.
We had such a fun visit.
