Our Adventures at the Cabin

We just got back from a fun little trip to Steve's family's cabin in Scofield (kind of by Price). It was a lot of fun! When we got there, Grayson ran around the deck about 50 times, giggling maddly. He LOVED it! I wish I had captured the moment, but we were unpacking the car while he was doing it, so we didn't get any pics or video. I got some awesome video of him laughing his head off inside the cabin one day, though -- but alas, I do not know how to upload it to the blog. You will have to settle for the pictures I took instead :) Here are a few of them:

Grayson loved to take his books out onto the deck and "read" them outside. He did this over and over with each of his books. I don't know where he got the idea into his little head to do that, but once he did it, that just where he'd go to read from then on.
This is him "reading" the story out loud to me. It's so darn cute, I wish everyone could hear him babble away. He definitely knows what he is saying and always turns the pages with purpose to continue his story. It's hilarious! Smarty pants :)

There were a lot of deer down there! What beautiful animals! This buck was right next to our cabin, and he just layed down and stayed there for hours! He was fun to watch.
Can you find the deer's head peeking out of the grass?! :)

Yesterday we went into town to the one store they have there in Scofield :) and bought Gray some ice cream -- his all-time favorite treat! He was in HEAVEN! And Ollie was jealous, as you can see.
What a mess! But he was SO happy, so I didn't care :)

Gray and his daddy relaxing and watching "Space Chimps" on Steve's laptop. I love Gray's face when he watches videos -- such concentration!! hehe Aren't they so cute?!

And leave it to Grayson to find a broom to play with. *sigh* I will never understand the fascination my child has with brooms. Oh, and another funny story: We were walking out in the woods, and he says "ball!" and points, and I'm like "What do you think looks like a ball?" and I'm trying to say stupid things like "Yeah, those leaves are the shape of balls, huh!" but he's very insistent, so we go over to where he says the ball is, and sure enough! There's a bright blue ball half-hidden under a bush! I felt really stupid. He just looked up at me and said "ball!" again, with this look on his face like "see, mom! duh!" So we brought the ball back with us, I washed it, and he had a great time playing with it the rest of the trip! I guess I learned never to doubt my son's powers to find balls in very odd places. But seriously, in my defense, who would expect to find a blue plastic ball in the middle of the woods?!?

Just a cute picture of him trekking up the road with Ollie.
Beautiful scenery.
Gray got tired 1/2-way up the hill (it's quite a steep hill), so daddy got to carry him. Lucky daddy :)

One view of the Scofield reservoir. Pretty, huh!

My happy boy driving the tractor. Don't know how far he'll get with a sippy cup in one hand, and his elephant in the other. But he's happy :)
Always happy to get shoulder rides from Dad!
We snooped inside a cabin that's being constructed down there. (You can see it in the background of the previous two photos) It's HUGE! And the view from the top floor was AMAZING!

Then back to the cabin for a nap! :) We had SO much fun! Who wants to come with us next time?! :)

Looks like you guys had so much fun!!! Way to go Grayson for finding a ball in the woods, smart kiddo!
Where did you get that tray that's attached to Grayson's carseat? That would come in very handy :)
