Did We Have a Blast in Boise?

Could we have spent one more second in the pool?


Do my kiddos have the best grandparents or what?
Was ten days too long mom and dad?


Wasn't it so great that our kids hit it right off, Carin?
Do yours miss mine like mine miss yours?


Like my grandma's hat? Isn't she sweet to watch out for me and my fair skin?


Speaking of fair, have you ever seen whiter (or wider) calves?


Aren't I blessed to still have three of my grandparents?


Isn't my sister a babe?


Like this picture?


Would you believe that we really had a good time at the cemetery for a father's day picnic?
Can you imagine how much my grandfather was missed?


WHO are my children playing in?


Is she so smart or what?


Can you believe that we only had one major meltdown the whole trip?
Are you surprised that he stubbornly kept one foot on the floor since he couldn't get off the bed?
How long do you think it finally took him to fall asleep?

Do I have the cutest kids or what?


Where did they come from?


Did we have a BLAST in Boise?
Do we miss you all?
YOU BET!!!!!

Why, yes, I have seen whiter calves.

ON MYSELF!

Looks like a super fun time. LOVE summer!!!

andrea said...

so many questions. how can i answer them all??? for the record, your grandpa's calves are whiter than yours. why does that not sound reassuring after all?

glad you had a super time. did you meet ilene?
the picture of connor with one foot on the floor is too much. i'll be laughing about that one all day. this is the part where i tell you that his mental toughness will be an asset to him as he matures. again, like the white calves and grandpa... not so reassuring right now.

So much fun to be had!! I bet you are exhausted. And I'm pretty sure that even though you had tons of activities to keep you busy, that you could have fun with your kids even if you were just locked in a room together!

Carin said...

It was fun to see our kids have a great time together! And I can't wait to get them together again.

I have to say, I think it is so amazing you had your fathers day picnic at the cemetary. That is so special! What a great family!
