Thanksgiving 2007

Back to Bug's House for Thanksgiving...
With good friends willing to open their home to us we headed back to Lander, WY. Lander is a great small town of about 7000 people (no Wal-Mart) with excellent winter climbing 9 miles up Sinks Canyon. Daddy's dream comes true! Despite cold weather here and there we had some superb days climbing and it was always nice to come home to a real house (not a tent as we did last year in Moab, UT). We climbed, cooked and ate a ton of delicious food. Lucas got to eat not only turkey but snow on Thanksgiving Day. I think snow was his favorite only second to marshmallows on the sweet potatoes.

Before heading out of town, Grandpa Jakulewicz stopped by and visited Mommy and Lucas. He was even roped in to reading a few books which could have easily turned into 20 books. Lucas loves books! It was a nice visit with Grandpa for sure. Thank you.

Another exciting activity for Lucas was going to the climbing gym and wearing a harness for the first time. At first he wanted nothing to do with it. So, we put it on the floor and ignored it. Within 5 minutes he was asking to put it on. He has climbed before with us helping him in our home gym but this was a whole new experience getting into a harness, using a rope and learning to use the up and down commands. I think he loved telling his dad what to do..."Up Please"..."Down Please"...this quickly turned into "Faster Down" and "Faster Up"...HE LOVED IT. The higher and the faster down the better. A true adrenaline junky living' up to his middle name. Daddy and Mommy were soooo proud!

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Thanksgiving! We love you all.

Our next adventure is driving to Zion National Park for Mike's brothers wedding. It should be a great trip visiting lots of family and friends.

Love, Janelle
