He's riding without training wheels! What a big boy! He just decided this afternoon that he was ready and it did not take long at all. He still has trouble on turns, but with practice he'll get better at that! He gave me quite the workout. I'd run beside him in case he fell. The crazy thing was he would be doing great and then get scared and want me to catch him. Whew, after about 30-45 minutes of running up and down the road, I was wiped. Check out the video below.

Taking a break.
What is it about boys and throwing rocks into the stream? They could have done this all day.
Yummy, ice cream! What a way to end a hot hike!
We took the boys for a hike again in Beaver Creek. It really is a pretty spot and we were scooping out the camping areas this time to see if we wanted to camp here. Campsites are a little close, but there are so many areas to hike in this park and it's all so beautiful here that I'm willing to be a little close to the other campers. It was really a little to hot to hike that day, but we all survived it. There were a few tears from Deacon. The poor kid just can't take the heat and he had a very short nap so he was tired to boot. Ty also seemed to be a little drained by the heat. He normally never complains about being tired on a hike, but this one he did. Although every time I asked him if he wanted to turn back, both him and Deke would say no pretty adamantly. I am so glad that they love to hike and camp.

This campground had so many fun things to do. They had these really cool looking pedal bikes. There was a four-seater one that we got to take the kids around on. It looked way cool and going down hill was a breeze, but trying to pedal that thing uphill was next to impossible. Joel would get out and push us up. They also had this train thing that came around that the kids could ride on and the everybody was super nice. It it weren't for the mosquitos it would have been perfect.

My neice's birthday was today. We met my brother,his wife, and Destiny in the Dells for a day of fun. We went to Riverview Water park and we really enjoyed it. All the kids loved it. We even took Deke down some of the bigger slides that he could ride double on and he loved it as well. He would cover his eyes, but other than that he would have a big grin on his face while he went down the slide. We got told twice by two different people that we have one brave 2 year old. Ty was pretty fearless too. I lost count of how many times we went up and down the waterslides. Fortunately, the lines were not long at all.
