Our Last Weekend in the Basin

 Sunday right before leaving
Last Weekend we stayed at the Limber Flag Yurt.  It was great cheap and secluded.  We had a lot of fun.  There were 2 full size bunk beds in the yurt and a woodburning stove and propane stove.  We cooked our dinner outside on the fire with M's family the first night and on the woodstove the next.  The kids just loved running around the yurt on the deck.

On Saturday we went to the Gorge and did the Dam tour, and ate our packed lunch.  Then we went to a beach and fished and went swimming.  With the kids all worn out we had them fed and in bed by 8:30 when the sun went down.

On Sunday everyone helped out and cleanup went fast.  This was our last great thing we will be doing before leaving the basin and it was great fun.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
