The awesome cabin we stayed at
Crazy Monkeys....whose kids are those?
Aubrey (our niece) dressed up as a pirate. The kids found pirate dress up so of course they had to wear the costumes and party like it was nobody's business!
Table Rock Lake - The view form the front of the cabin.
Thumbs up for boating cousin babes!
Uncle Jarom and cozy Kate
Cousin Joseph playing it cool!

Danielle started the 2nd grade, and Lilly started Kindergarten - which is in all day event out here in MO. So pretty much they take the bus to school together and come home on the bus together. They were both very brave and played the "cool" card - no tears just a bunch of hugs, kisses, and waves good-bye. What a milestone that day was. I was so proud to see my 2 grown-up kids going to school.

The kids (and me) absolutely adored Sheena's little girl Jeada - she's just so stink'n cute!
One of the many fun activities the kids did at Grandma's house -pinata! a.k.a.; excitement, sugar rush, crash, emotional moodiness, and then....time to eat more candy! At the park in Saratoga Springs with my sister's kids. I love this picture of Michael. We were BFF by the end of the trip - too bad he's too much of a mamma's boy or I would have stuck him in my pocket and taken him home with me.

We weren't going to stay long at the Grand Canyon - just kind of passing through. It was a bit out of our way, but we really wanted to go and get some great pictures. Well, right when we got there the sun went down, so we lost the good sunlight for awesome pics. Oh well, at least we were able to have a potty break. Kate was having a blast as you can tell! Jarom, Jeff's brother, came with us....that's who's in this pic with us. Thanks Jarom, you were a BIG help!
One of the "good pictures" we got before we lost good sunlight.
The BEST pic we got at the canyon! Lilly was in a sweet posing mood.
Jeff took this picture on our way to Burley. It was just off the freeway taking the Declo exit.
Sunday Morning in Grandma's garden. The girls LOVED that Grandma let them pick flowers!

Danielle found a toad out side their house! She poked at it a few times and picked it up and came into the house to show us. I thought that was very cool and brave of her...you go girl!
Our family vacation this year was going out west (back home). We were out for 3 weeks and stayed at 5 different places. That consisted of keeping track of every ones everything including all the junk.....er I mean cool stuff we collected along the way. My top 5 favorite things about our trip were....
1. Seeing family including new additions that we had not met yet.
2. Eating food
3. Going to the Twin Falls Temple open house and Jeff talking to each of our girls about eternity while looking into the mirror in the sealing room.
4. Liquid Nitrogen Bottle rockets. (I'll let Jeff explain that one!)
5. Coming home safe and sound!
more out west trip posts to come.......must sleep now
