This Week and Boys Clothes-are there any?

This week has been kinda busy for us!

Wednesday my mom, the boys and I drove up to Lake of the Woods to enjoy some fresh mountain air and water! It was so great! On the way there we saw "Mountain Cows." If you are anything like my husband, you might be wondering what those are? They are cows that are in the open range area walking all around. We saw a baby cow walking down the middle of the road, and the mama waiting for it on the side of the road. Then we went a little farther and there was a cow pie in the road so I thought we might be seeing some more. There was a whole family! A dad, children, mom, and maybe even cousins or grandparents. They even mooed at us and we stopped, rolled down the windows, and checked them all out.

While we were driving we also saw a bunch of chipmunks, and a couple of deer. Once we got there, two jets flew over pretty low! We were very excited to say the least. There was a duck we were feeding that enjoyed some of our chips, my mom and the boys saw a couple of fish. It was a very eventful morning!

Carson loved being in the water! I pulled Carson and Gabe around for a while.
After lunch Carson pulled me around and then Gabe joined us too!

On Thursday Trev, the boys and I went to Emigrant Lake for the morning. It was so nice! There barely any boats coming in or out of the lake. Carson and Gabe got to take a close look at the Sheriff's boat and were given two coupons for free ice cream cones at Dairy Queen for wearing their life jackets in the water. We played with rocks, shovels/buckets, and some water floaties. Trev and the boys walked to one of the boat docks and used the boat ramp to get in the water. I joined them for a little dip also.

Last night Carson, my mom and I went to Medford to do some shopping for a wedding we are going to next weekend. We started off at Kids to Kids for some shoes and 5t pants. There was one pair of khaki pants that were torn up and stained. We decided to pass on those and find some at TJ Maxx, Ross, or Target. Ross had jeans. That is all. Tj's had about 2 items of boy things and tons of girl clothing racks. Target was our next bet. We found a pair there, that are cute and will last for a couple of years, unless Carson has a HUGE growth spurt. I found myself getting more and more frustrated with every store we went to and every store having mostly girl clothing! There are boys in this world people, they need clothing too!!!

This morning my mom and I went to about 8 yard sales. Haven't done yard sales in years! I was on the hunt for a pair of needle nose pliers. At the second sale that specified "tools," I asked if they had any and the gentleman said "no, but if you have a minute I can see if I have an extra pair." He found a pair and sold them to me for $1! I was very excited! I got a couple other things too. Earrings, a couple shirts, a brand new hot/cold reusable little lunch box, oh and a Razor scooter! It is larger than the one we have, folds in half (I know most do, but the one we have doesn't work right) and even has shocks!

Then Trev, myself and the boys went up to the FREEZING cold reservoir today to play and have a picnic for lunch! The water was so cold!

What has your week been like? Enjoying the end of your summer (even though it feels like it just got here?)?
