We just returned from our best family vacation that hopefully results in an annual trip for many years to come. We stayed in a "tent-cabin" at the Colter Bay campground in Teton Nat'l Park. (Colter Bay is part of Jackson Lake)
Views from the Outside and Inside of our campsite. Not quite roughin' it.
The kids had a blast chasing squirrels, water-skiing on the lake (thanks Edgley's), burn stuff in the fire, trying to catch minnows, seeing foxes run through the camp-site, visit Old Faithful and the Mud Pots in Yellowstone, pony rides, and burn stuff in the fire, smores almost every night, and burn more stuff in the fire.
See you next year. Aug 2009

I'm sitting in the mechanic's waiting room while they repair a flat tire and give me a couple of new ones. It's really easy to "sell" me new tires for a fleet vehicle I don't pay for. It went something like this. Mechanic-"Mr. Knight, these 2 tires are a little uneven. Do you want to replace those today?" Me-"Yes."
I even lose some Man-Points b/c I couldn't change the tire. Better said, I couldn't remove the flat tire because of the wussy "might-as-well-have-been-made-by-Hasbro" tire iron included in the car. I did make a new friend from Roadside Assistance.
You must check out one of my favorite desserts. I try to explain these cookie/wafers to AK all the time. Well here they are. Check out the complete dessert here.

Happy (insert your favorite low number here) Birthday! We (the boys and I) started the day early with wrapping a couple of unique gifts and cards the boys threw together. (I'm still working on the present thing.) The boys set the table while we mixed together some blueberry sourdough pancakes for breakfast.
Now the lucky birthday girl is off to the dentist. Can you celebrate a birthday any better?
Later, the plan is to head to Park City for a bike ride. Gotta head to the hills for some cooler evening rides...We love you.

This is a video of the bobsled trail we did yesterday. There are quite a few of these videos on youtube. Maybe we'll make one this summer. The first few seconds are funniest, and no we did not try to jump any old cars in the trail, but Pat did see the guy ahead of us do it.

The boys and I celebrated the 30th anniversary of Ben & Jerry's by lining up with 40 other frozen dairy fans for a free single serve of B&J's. H & I both chose Choco and PB swirl while O-dog went out on a limb with vanilla.
The idea at the ice cream giveaway was that all tips went toward some do-gooder charity, which is great. So H asked me why they kept ringing this bell while we waited in line. I told him about the tips for the charity, and then asked him if he had a dollar because I was broke. So after we collected our cool cones, we snuck out the front door with no ring of the bell. But the ice cream was good.
By the way, Baskin Robbins 31 penny cone is tomorrow!
