Little Passports: World Explorers

 We have been super slackers when it comes to our Little Passport World Explorers kits...but Rowan asked to do one and that snowballed into a few days in a row of us completing all 7 of the kids we had stacking up!

He loved digging the sarcophagus out!

 That tongue!

 He ended up getting his tool kit our and using his real tools~

Then we were off to Mexico~


 And then South Africa~

He loved the bird whistle~

 Then off to France~

 I can see France!

Then of to Japan~

 Wherre he learned to write a haiku~

 And we made some origami~

 Then we were off to Austrailia~

 And then to Brazil!

 He loved the amethyst from Brazil~
 And he drew a spider monkey from step by step directions~

 All in all these are fun little kits but I think they are way overpriced for what you get.  I won't be getting them again...we have 5 more to go though so we shall see where we travel to~

 No, not the potato...just a little errand run and a fun weekend get away.  Ahh...goodbye Utah and your terrible excuses for margaritas!

 We love going to Boise and hanging out at Fattys...they play the best music for dancing!

 The DJ's were awesome this night~

 And of course I lost at pool! The pics from this trip make me laugh because they are all so blurry...we were having way too much fun~
 Breakfast was amazing!  Make your own mimosa bar...yes please!

And this crazy thing! The server told David if he could eat it all it would be free...he did not succeed LOL

We were a little worried about getting home...SLC got hit hard with tons of snow but it was south and the roads were pretty much clear the whole way home~

 Its been fun having this little guy as a part of our family...even if he made it his job to destroy all of my yarn...and only the ones that were new, still wrapped in their packaging...and destroy all the fairies, gnomes and forest dwellers of the the seasonal table making it only consist of candles and rocks at the moment....

He is so weird...and I do mean weird.  This is how he went to sleep.  He slept like this for an hour...

Yes he is spoiled beyond measure~

Breakfast conversations after a super fun sleepover! These two have been best buds since birth.  I see a lot more sleepover fun in their future~

They sure know how to build a wall~

Little America Fun

David and I had a fun night away, and the next Day David had a conference so I went home and grabbed Rowan for some swimming fun~

 They have a super cool indoor outdoor pool up on the roof! He had a blast~

 Little fish~


Snacks and cartoon network after hours of pool time is the best~
