VACAY 2012

We LOVE going to Boise/Meridian to visit with my aunt Sondra. She is so much fun and we really enjoy being able to visit and hang out.  This year, the 'vacay'was just that.  Visiting, hanging out, watching Dairy Days Parade and seeing Robyn and Jason's new house.

We took the scenic route Thursday through Filer to pick up equipment that was headed to Boise.  It was quite a quaint little town.  We even saw a sign for 'Jolley Acres' near Buhl Idaho.  It was fun to see something with your name on it.  Too bad we didn't get a picture.

Thursday night we played a couple of phases of Phase 10 and headed to bed.  Friday, Sondra worked in the morning and Brandon and I ran to drop off the equipment and see if we could find a white shirt for Kate and a book about our camera at the mall.  We were not successful in the later.

Friday night was good 'ole Dairy Days parade that we LOVE! 

Brady, Dawson, Faith

Sondra, smile and look at the camera!

The girls!

Brandon and me

Colt and Jason

The girls loved waving at the princesses!
Kate even said, "Hey everybody!  We're here for candy and toys!"  It was so funny!

Dawson was really getting into it.  I wish that I would have gotten video of him dancing to the drums.  It was awesome!  He grabbed so many string cheeses.  \And then he hooked on his ziplock to his shirt so he could scoop up even more candy.

Fun ride on a float

This is always my favorite float every year.  Their youth usually sings and dances along the route.  It is a local church.

I couldn't help but share this one.  It reminded me of what Texas looked like everywhere!

Kate was excited to see a little school bus like the one that she rode for school this year.

Bristol was getting so many things too!  She was more interested in seeing what she had than seeing what was coming up next!

Kate had a sleepover at the Royce's new house.  The next day we went to say hello and see their new house.  I am bummed that I didn't get any pictures.  We stayed for a couple of hours visiting.  Her house is looking great and they are making quite a few upgrades and updates.  The kids played and Jason (with a little help from Brady) burned quite a few things ...

I did not get a picture in the height of it, but it was VERY hot and had flames going.

The kids kept coming to 'check it out'

Colt and Dawson

Brady is SO great with my kids!  They had so much fun playing Life and with their DS'.

We attend sacrament in their ward and took baby James to Sondra's house.  We bathed him and got him down for a nap.  Kate was 'in love.'  On the way home, she said, "How did you know I wanted a baby brother?"  It was too cute.

One the way out, Dawson just started crying so hard.  He really likes it here and feels comfortable with Aunt Sondra.  I had all of the kids take their going goodbye pictures in the car.

Don't worry Buddy!  We'll be back soon!
