Well the Ashton's finally got a pet....a frog. Cody found it for the boys when he was mowing his brother's lawn but told the boys he brought it all the way from the Grand Canyon for them! He had just returned from a hike with some guys from our old ward where they hiked Havasupai. He had a great time, came back tired and sore but it was a fun trip for him.
The boys could not be more excited about their new frog, quickly naming him Marshmallow. Ethan is the only one who will hold him, while Rhett stands closely by supervising. Kade will bravely give Marshmallow a quick jab and then shriek because he enjoyed it and it scared him also. He stands by our back door calling "og! og!" until we open the door so he can go stare at it. Then he calls "ello! ello!" over and over saying hello to Mr. Frog.
This smile is dangerous...
Cody left Sunday after church and my parents offered to let Rhett and Ethan sleep over at their house. My sisters Ashley and Ally came over to spend the night at my house...not a fair trade but I was happy with it! My mom and dad took Rhett and Ethan on a hike the next morning and they had fun looking for lizards and hitting things with sticks.
Ethan was making a crazy face in every picture, the little turkey. They had lots of fun and ask to go on hikes every day now!
