Over the last weekend of March, Ward and I loaded our kids up and drove to Jackson, Wyoming to celebrate our anniversary and GET AWAY!!!! We'd been talking about our anniversary for a long time and we both decided we needed to go somewhere warm . . . so . . . we chose Jackson? Seriously I haven't seen so much snow in my life. It was still fun and we had a great time with the girls. Maybe we'll go somewhere warm next year.
The BIG NEWS from the trip centers around Maiya's WAH WAH. Her little companion from birth--that little piece of silicone, that's going to cost at least $3,000 in braces when she's fourteen--ah the pacifier.
Ward told her that while we were in Jackson she needed to find a nice animal to give her wah wah to. She fretted about it the whole three days, until on the last day we were driving out of town, past the Best Western. It had a whole bunch of carved wooden bears all around it. "Look!" we said, "Baby Bears!!!!" We drove around the entrance to the hotel until we found the perfect little baby bear--who really needed his own wah wah (you know because he doesn't have a mom or dad and the wah wah will make him feel better). Well this little guy was perfect because he was standing right next to a trash can (keep Jackson Clean!).
She bravely gave the bear the wah wah and then leaned down to give him a kiss. I wish the pictures showed how dang cute it was.
She talked about the wah wah the whole ride home and for the next three nights (when she didn’t sleep). Then she remembered she'd given her Uncle Wyatt (26) a wah wah for his birthday--a gag gift about the size of my hand. "Maybe he'll share," she said.
First Day of School in Knoxville!
