Moses: "Mamma, where's Micah?"
Me: "I think he's still sleeping."
Me: "He's sleeping."
He puts his face in his hands and says very upset: "Oooh gosh."

Sometimes..... making sugar cookies is kind of exhausting. So is teaching four dance classes in one day. So is being 11 weeks pregnant. So is having two kids. But it's all worth it. Especially the sugar cookies. #justmademyalreadyprematurelyfatbabybellyevenbiggerwithlotsofdeliciousprettycookies

So usually every Summer we go to the beach, but for something different and for varying other reasons the whole Hansen group took a vacation at Jackson Hole, Wyoming this year. IT WAS AWESOME. I'm not going to lie- I'm not the biggest fan of the West- I mean I quite like it, I just like the East better- what can I say I'm admittedly an East Coast snob. But, Jackson Hole was stunning. It was gorgeous. And fun! I looove nature and being outside but I'm not the biggest outdoorsy/adventure/camping/REI person (surprise surprise) but I loved going on those hikes and being out in the fresh mountain air and canoeing and desperately trying to spot wildlife for my children to see. It was very refreshing and invigorating. Plus Jackson is relatively close to the Hafers in Twin Falls, ID so we were able to spend several days with Drew's family, which is always an absolute treat. My kids loved playing with their cousins Lucy and Greta and their sweet Grandma and it makes me so sad that we don't live closer. We also got to see my grandparents in Pocatello, ID. That was such a blessing to be able to see them and see how much joy my children bring to them.
While in Jackson Drew fulfilled a life-long dream of climbing the Grand Teton. He admitted afterwards that it really "kicked his butt" but it was a great adventure for him and I'm sooooo glad that he was able to do and achieve something so great and so meaningful to him.
First up here are Drew's pictures from his Grand Climb.
Drew (and everyone else) claims that the Idaho side is much more beautiful. :)
After dropping off Drew for his mountain climb Page, Ted, the kids and I went on our own little hike on the other side of Jenny Lake. It was... 5 miles up and back? Maybe 4? Anyways, first we had to ferry across the lake to the start of the hike.....
We walked through Downtown Jackson for some eating and shopping and every time we walked by this bear chair Moses HAD to sit in it. It seriously made him soooo happy. It's all about the little things right? Or the big huge wooden bear chairs.
