Of course the first thing Jenson wanted to do while in Idaho was ride the 4-wheeler!  Good thing his dad loves to ride as much as he does! 

 As part of our Idaho trip we headed to Twin Falls to visit Babe's sister.  We were going to go to Boise with her for the next few days to help with some medical stuff for Ellie.  On our way to Twin we decided to stop by Shoshone Falls- we haven't been since we were first married!  It was sooo windy and foggy but so pretty too!  Jenson was asleep in the car before we got there so he was kind of grumpy but I think he liked it too after a while! haha

 Jenson loves his grandpas- he just has a think for male figures in his life!  I love how he just follows them around all the time! 

Boise was filled with lots of driving, games, snacks, parks, and family time.  Jenson would just take a nap where he could- my favorite was on me! 

We even went on our own little tour of the Capital building! 

 Mckee's petting farm! 

 I can't get over sunset rides up on the farm.  Although with Jenson now bigger and being 34 weeks pregnant, but butt was sure sore from sitting on the hard bars! haha but I think these views are worth it!

 We also hit up the trampoline park for "toddler time" and pretty much had the whole place to ourselves! 

 After jumping we went to the hibachi grill from a early birthday lunch for me! I'm still dreaming of that stake- it was sooo yummy!
 We headed up to the pine corner one night for some family camping!  We had yummy tin foil dinners and smores before everyone headed home and then a few of us stayed to camp over night!  Thanks to the camp trailer we stayed nice and warm all night!

 Not pictured- Jenson getting himself locked in the trailer.  He had no idea how to unlock it but thankfully after some prayers and some calm help from his dad we were able to get him to open the emergency exit window and climb inside to unlock the door!  
 The next morning we went on a looong 4 wheeler/motorcycle ride all over the farm and to check out some other cabins around Inkom.  Thankfully our BIL Jason has an amazing 4 wheeler that has a extra seat that I sat on (felt like a cloud) so Babe and Jenson could ride the other 4 wheeler!  So much better for my butt- and for taking pictures!

 We got tickets to go see the Idaho Falls open house- it was soo pretty but Jenson lost interest and kept saying "I don't like the temple!" haha so we were all pretty happy to finish!

After the temple we went back to his sister house to celebrate my birthday!  We had some yummy Chinese food and then my all time favorite cake!  Was the the perfect way to spend the day before heading back to Utah!

Utah trip part 1

We love when Babe gets out of school because it means we get to go home and visit all of our friends and family!!  This trip was extra amazing because we had 2 weddings in the family so we got to see lots of family we wouldn't of been able to other wise!  
 Brunch with some of Babes cousins and sister!  
Uncle Kyron knows the way to Jenson's heart with lots of rides on his lawn mower! haha

 Classic skating night with the family!  I haven't been to this place since high school, it was fun to go and relive some old memories with my own little family.  Except for the part where Jenson was throwing a royal fit because it was an adult skate only and he didn't understand why he couldn't! haha

 We spent lots of time getting ready for Kyron and Meagans wedding- and for Ashlee and Matts!

 ^^ Babe sure knows how to pack a car- we were a little worried about rain so somehow he made everything fit for Ashlee's wedding in our van, leaving just enough room for Jenson! haha^^
 Costco trips to pick up the reception food with the cousins, it took 3 carts but we did it!

Matt and Ashlee's wedding was sooo beautiful, it was a random day with some snow, rain, wind, then sunshine!  They had an amazing lunch at the Joseph Smith Memorial Building!  And thanks to my awesome in laws and sister n law we got to enjoy the whole day without even having to worry about Jenson!!
They asked me to make a little video of their wedding day- it's nothing fancy but you can see that here:

 Before everyone left to go home from the wedding we had a combined "shower" for Kyron and Meagan with all of my aunts and uncles from my moms side!  It was so fun to have everyone together again!  The next day we packed up the car and headed to Idaho for a week of fun!!
