Idaho Trip

My youngest sister left on a mission this week. She is in the MTC, but in a few weeks she'll be on her way to Philadelphia. We are so proud of her decision to be a missionary for our church. Last week was her "farewell," so we headed up to Idaho to say good-bye to Brittany. My whole family was there which was crazy, but fun. There was a big party after church and I didn't take any pictures then, but we did have an adventure the day before. We went to the Museum of Idaho where they are having an exhibit about carousels. It was really neat to see the old carousels. The carving was neat and some of them were hand cranked. I was fascinated. The kids' favorite part was riding the carousel of course! They love spending time with their cousins, and staying at grandma's house (mostly because she lets them watch cartoons in the morning).

When I woke up Saturday morning, I came out and found this.
Best seat in the house for morning cartoons!
Mark and Daniel on the carousel

Dax and Abby!

Seth LOVED the carousel!
This was Dax's favorite carving--a great blue heron.

Mark liked the dragon ones!

See Josh down there? Every other picture I have of him is blurry. I wanted all the cousins to be represented! And I thought those horses were pretty.

We rode the carousel twice. Seth and Audrey shared a bench the 2nd time.

We saw trumpeter swans right by the freeway. We were so excited. Yes, we are bird nerds.

We stopped by the Idaho Falls temple and the falls. Seth was thrilled.


  1. My kids would love that museum! Was it expensive?

  2. Answered your questions on my blog. Might want to check back.
