Happy Birthday Garrett!

Garrett turned 7 this last Saturday. We had a fun day.
We went swimming at Green Canyon. It is a hot springs
that my family has gone to for, seemingly, forever. Garrett
was so big and brave and was jumping off the diving board tons!
The pool itself is indoor and mixed with cold water but outside
is a HOT pool and sunbathing area. There is also a little
cold pool to cool off in afterward. Garrett and some other
boys that were there decided it would be fun to dip
themselves in the hot pool (don't know how
they could stand was so hot!) and then dunk themselves in the
cold pool. BRRRR! Oh well, boys will be boys. They aren't the
first ones to ever do it. My brothers used to do the same thing
when they were little.
This was Ryan's first time swimming. He did so good. He just splashed around
and was very happy to play in the pool.
On the way home we stopped at the
Teton Dam historical site. It broke 33 years ago!

After swimming we came home and had a BBQ
with family and Garrett opened his presents.

He is really into basketball right now. He got a ball
and the hoop to go with it. Blaine just needs to
get it mounted to the shed so Garrett can play.

He got lots of money too! Here is the wad of cash
from Grandma Cook! Thanks Grandma!

Here is Garrett's basketball cake he requested.
I have never made a cake in any other shape but
square or round but I thought this turned out cute!
Garrett loved it and the cake was tasty too!

Garrett wanted to cut his own cake so here he is
doing the honors.
It was a long, fun day. Happy Birthday Bud!

Wish we lived closer together so we could share your special occassions with you. I guess next year being your 8th birthday we'll make that a priority. Craters of the moon looked fun. I've been there but never in any of the caves. Grandma Jones
