Bridal Veil Falls

Our family went to Bridal Veil Falls 2 weeks ago.  It was so much fun!  Jarren didn't want to go with us because he thinks his family only does boring things; we proved him wrong on this trip because he loved it!

At the bottom of the falls were tons of fish.  The kids loved feeding them.  And Kate thought it was great to touch them.  Most of the other kids weren't brave enough to do this.

It Was Bound to Happen Sooner or Later

With 4 sisters I knew this was bound to happen...It didn't make Jason any happier though.

Idaho Visit With Jeremy's Family

Jason's brother, Jeremy, and his family came from California for a visit.  We only get to see them about once a year, so we really treasure the time that they are here.  Instead of spending their whole time in Utah, they decided that they wanted to spend most of their time in Idaho, so we went to Idaho too.

We did a lot of fun things.  The kids enjoyed sleeping in a tent, and I enjoyed it because then Jason's grandparents house wasn't as crowded.

We enjoyed spending time with cousins, aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas.


Jason's Aunt Sheila was so nice to arrange for us to go to a farm.  We found out on our trip that Karli had some things on her Bucket List that we didn't know about...Ride a horse and see a cow's face up close.  Sheila was able to help us check both of those off of her list. :)


This is how Jarren felt about the stinky barn.

We had our usual trip to Big Judd's for greasy burgers, fries and ice cream.  A trip to Idaho just isn't the same without it.

We also were able to celebrate Jason's grandparents 60th wedding anniversary.  His grandparents didn't want anything big, so it was just food, family and a little program at their house.

We also fed horses, rode tractors, and shot BB guns.  It was great fun!


The day before the 4th of July we went to Jackson.  It was different than I expected.  The last time we went I was about 4.  So, let's just say that's been a few years ago. 

The kids loved seeing all the stuffed animals (real ones).  We ended up coming away with some bags of rocks and some toy stuffed animals (huggable ones, with stuffing inside :) )

4th of July

My sister and I made 4th of July shirts for the girls this year.  I think they ended up turning out pretty cute, even though after we started them I felt like we had gotten into a bigger project than I had planned on.  I guess that's what happens when you make 4 shirts.

We were in Idaho for the 4th.  And had fun going to the Rexburg parade.  It was after the parade that Karli informed us that she wanted to ride on a horse.  City kids don't see too many horses.
