Camping Trip

We are days away from having our new baby girl and Cabe decided to take all 3 kids camping, by himself, to give me a weekend off. These are all the pictures he could take since his hands were pretty full. The boys both caught a fish, and Carson especially enjoyed fishing. Cabe said he fished for hours and could have kept going. We bought them both their own fishing poles and Carson could do everything on his own, which made it much more fun for him. It's too bad we don't have a picture:)
I was able to relax and enjoy my time, which I took full advantage of. I spent one day reading my book, taking a nap, watching a chick flick and eating ice cream. The next day I got to spend with my sisters in Provo. We shopped, got pedicures, at a delicious dinner, and went to a movie. I really appreciate Cabe for the weekend I got to have, what a good man.

Our New Pet Snakes!!

We've had our snakes, Lydia and Buttons, for a few weeks now and it's been quite the experience. We have rented from the Library several books on Garter Snakes and learned quite a bit. We have got to actually witness a few things now for ourselves as well. We have had both snakes shed their skin, which was very cool. The snakes eyes go white and foggy for a few days and then they shed. We had been feeding the snakes crickets and found that they didn't like them very much. So, this weekend we bought some gold fish and actually witnessed the snakes dive into the dish, catch the fish, and then swollow the fish whole. It was very cool. In two days the snakes have eaten 6 fish, so I think we found something they like to eat.
