The second week of the trip was full of fun days. We played with Nanna and Poppa, we spent a day at the park with all of our cousins, we went to the Zoo with Grandma, and we visited Grandma and Grandpa Red, and we got to talk to both Jake and Tyler. The boys and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Idaho was good to us!
|Nanna and Poppa have the best toys!|
|Fun for everyone!|
|Riding Poppa's fourwheeler.|
|The boys wouldn't stop talking|
|I got to do Charlie's hair. Life is good.|
|Coloring with Sophie.|
|I walked in on Ryan watching|
all of the kids...
|Miles and Sophie are pretty good pals.|
|...and by kids, I mean the Golden State Warriors.|
|It's an exclusive book club.|
|Charlie, the selfie master.|
|Such a cutie.|
|We love Palmsky! (Elder Palmer)|
|Hooray for Mother's Day!|
|Park day with the cousins, and all of Ryan's energy, was a blast!!|
|Macie was kind enough to give|
Benji a ride.
|So kind. Thanks, Macie!|
|Grandpa is the best swing pusher.|
|For the record, I did NOT|
fit down that slide very well.
|It's always a party at the Freddy house!|
|Milo didn't want to leave|
|I won't complain.|
|Proof that Jamie washes|
|Happy Birthday, Jake!|
|Yeah, he fit in a box.|
|"Benji, Milo...where did|
|So of course, I had to try too.|
|But being shorter and skinnier than|
Trev, I had the advantage.
|Sometimes we are a little too|
competitive for our own good..
Ty won the gold medal, for sure.
|It is rare to see Milo sit so still.|
|He borrowed Linkin's "comfychair" |
and sat still for 10 whole minutes!
|I snagged three adorable pictures|
while I could.
|Playing the "pianano" with Grandma is one|
of their favorite things.
|She's my favorite sister.|
|We got to Nanna Red's house and she|
had Cheetos out waiting for us. It didn't take the
boys too long to warm up to them.
|The baby bear cubs were a huge hit.|
|Just a little bit of Bear World exploration!|
|We had a blast...except for the fact that it was about|
30 degrees, without the freezing wind. Us
Arizonians had a hard time adjusting to the cold
and there were many tears shed.
|Milo, you make an adorable bear!|
|"Benji, can you put your head in, like Miles?"|
:) Benji makes an adorable bear cub too.
|So cute, Sophie!|
|Macie, you're adorable!|
|The kids were SO excited to ride the rides!|
|Benji was less enthusiastic about these ones...|
in fact, we had to stop the ride early because both
of the boys were crying. Poor kids, it's a rough life.
|At the petting zoo, Miles and Macie were VERY|
determined to catch the Chickens.
|But gave up after a solid 10 minutes of running|
and settled on the pig.
|Finally, she got a Chicken!|
|I think the goats were as cold as the boys.|
|And of course, Miles found the only puddle in the park.|
|Especially when it involves Grandpa!|
|It must have been a good commercial to capture four|
two year old's attention.
|Watching the shadows!|
|There's nothing better than good ol' family frolfing!|
|Nice form, Scott!|
|I knew it!|
|You make getting those frisbees look easy! Getting |
them in the water and getting them out.
haha!! just kidding, big bro.
|Nice landing, Scott.|
|Trying to find the next hole is often a tricky task|
|Working on form. Nice work, RyJan!|
|Missing two, but we made do with what we had.|
|It was so nice to be able to catch up|
with some of the best from High School.
|I could not get them|
out of this nest..
|Headed back home.|
|Thank goodness for treats and movies!|
|Just relaxing after a long 8 hours in the car with no sleep.|
We can't wait to be home.
Until next time, Idaho! We had a blast and can't wait to be there again in July with Josh. We also can't wait to get out of the Arizona heat. Idaho will always be home.
