Lake Arrowhead

So two weeks ago we all got to go up to Lake Arrowhead and spend time with Greg's parents. It was so much fun and Sean did such a good job at swimming. Even miss Brianna was trying to walk down into the water and do hand over hand along the side of the pool. We also got to go play in the mountains and go on alot of adventures. The kids had so much fun playing with Nana and Papa. Brianna got really good at walking all around. We learned that when Bri grabs her shoes that means that she is ready go out and play. It was a blast

The Farm

So has anyone been to a farm. Well Ill tell you now it is any kids dream come true. It was so fun to watch Brianna and Sean get so excited about all the animals, the tractor, the four wheeler, and even the pretend surf board that the kids play on in the pond. Sean and his cousin who is two years older really got along really well this year. It was so cute to watch them play together I hope their friend when they get older. Everyday Sean would wake up asking for Kyler. Also I have never seen Brianna attach to someone so fast as my dad, and she even figured out how to say papa. Every time Bri would get excited she would bouncing and clapping her hands. So we went from playing at the water park, to riding the tractor, feeding the horse, riding the carousel going to West Yellowstone and going on a bike ride. Also going to an awesome little town parade. See the awesome picture of Sean collecting candy and shoving it in his pockets, they were full by the end of the day. Even Bri was trying to collect as much candy as she could. Greg flew out half way through the trip and it was so much fun to show him how the kids reacted to the farm. Then he was awesome and drove back with us. The drive back was the worst part because we drove straight threw and Brianna was over it at 1am and still in her high chair. Also while we were up there I got to hang out with my cousin Amber, grandma, my sister, and cousins. It was so fun to see everyone. Brianna did awesome walking. I'm so proud of her.

14 hour drive to Idaho

So call me crazy but last month I decided to pack up the kids and drive out to Idaho to visit my family and the farm. So I bought presents, took lots of movies, and tons of snacks to try and keep the kids distracted. So me and the kids drove first to St George and stayed the night where they had a blast playing with their cousins. Thanks Amber so letting us stay. Then we got up the next day and headed the next eight hours to Idaho. Amazingly the kids did really well me and Brianna got restless the last hour but Sean did great the whole way as long as I kept the presents coming. Overall worth the drive to see how much fun the kids had at the farm. Up next I will blog all about Idaho. So anyone debating about driving somewhere with your kids you can do it.
