Yesterday we took advantage of some nice weather and went for a hike at Flaming Geyser State Park. We were expecting to see some cool geysers, considering the parks name, but they were pretty disappointing. One of the geysers produces methane gas which is where the flaming part comes in. The other geyser is called bubbling geyser and it wasn't very active when we got there.
Gavin dressed himself for the hike. Blue shirt layered with a husky jersey, paired with red plaid shorts over black long underwear. All combined with white socks and blue/orange checkered vans. WOW!
Olivia was a little bit whiny about having to walk because she's still fighting a cold but she did hold her own. It felt great to get outside to explore. We're hoping to visit as many state parks with the kids as we can over the years.
The other day Gavin says to me, "Mom, are you really the boss?" I said, "what do you mean?" He explains, "Well, Dad says that he's the boss of Olivia and me but you're the boss of everyone." He then continues to tell me that he never wants to get married because he always wants to be the boss of himself. I told him that I am not the boss of his dad but he was not convinced. After some thought, he decided that he was ok with me being the boss and that he wants to just live with us forever.
