We love Boise!

We had a great time in Boise! Mama and Curtis got on a plane (delayed after a last minuet ultrasound) and headed to Boise to see auntie and celebrate the twin's first baby shower. Curtis did so great on the plane - and so did I, I must add. Traveling alone with an almost three year old and being 6 months pregnant with twins is no easy task. Except for the fit he threw getting into his car seat on the plane and scarring all the people sitting close to us, he was a perfect flyer.
He was so excited to see Auntie! Uncle Dave was gone for the weekend and missed out on the fun. We had a great time at the shower - my sister got so many cute things for the twins! Curtis couldn't understand why we had cake but nobody sang happy birthday. It's hard to believe these little tiny beans will be here in a few months.
We went to the zoo and Curtis got to see all the animals. Somehow his favorite was the giant 20 foot snake. Go figure. That and riding the carousel (see above).
Another great thing about being in Boise is curtis did so great at potty training. He has been doing a great job at home wearing underwear and not having too many accidents, but leaving the house is a different story. I just assumed he wouldn't be interested in using the big potty at my sister's house, but he barely had a wet diaper except at night. I was really impressed that he took to it so well. And is it wrong to be proud that today at the park he had to pee (and he was just wearing underwear), and there were no bathrooms around so I pulled down his pants and he went pee pee standing up next to a tree? Potty training has been a super slow process, and we are trying not to rush him. But it feels like something has just clicked with him lately. Yay Curtis!! I'm sure we have a ways to go, but it's something!!

Our hike at Crane Creek Park

We ran, we threw rocks in the creek, we climbed trees. Life is good.
