Last weekend we drove down to Utah to babysit Blake, Tyler, and Lacey for the day! It was great practice and experience to see what it will be like to be parents. Hats off to all you parents, it was a very busy, tiring day! I was amazed with how much these kids ate all day long, so sorry if this post involves lots of our meals. After cereal for breakfast we rolled them all up like burritos. :) Easier to manage when they can't move. :) haha.

Was an awesome day! We woke up and packed.... Then went and played some tennis! We tried couples tennis with Ryan and Noelle. This is when I realized real tennis isn't very fun because there's rules and I'm not very good. :) haha, still had fun with Noelle and Ryan, just not playing all the games of tennis! We later went to warm slough to float the river. :) It was the perfect little loop to float, only took about an hour.
We got back to town and got Little Caesar's- crazy crusted- with Zap packs!
Then we played some frisbee in the park before heading home where I made Smore's Bars. :) They turned out super delicious! Then it was dark and we drove up to the Temple to enjoy a 360 degree firework show! We could see fireworks in Rigby, hibbard, and Rexburg; some close and some far, it was awesome. Love this country and our freedoms!!

Georgia!!! Such an amazing and fun finale with my sister before her mission! It was jammed pack all weekend long! I arrived Thursday night, after my flight was cancelled in SLC... so annoying. Friday we woke up and went Golfing!
After golfing we went swimmin to cool off. I can't even describe how sweaty we were... That night we went to the one and only:
SATURDAY morning we woke up at 6:15 to go watch the sunrise at this beautiful lake/river not even 10 minutes from our house. I had no idea it was so close and it was SO beautiful!
Then we went on our last trail run together and drank chocolate milk before heading to the trampoline place. Here is a video of Connor, he did the best at dunking. :)
Look at those giant leaves!! Georgia is so green, I loved it!! Anything here in Idaho looks SO dull compared to the green in georgia. Everything is greener x10 there!Sunday we went to church where Tori gave a little talk, then we came home and made a fire to eat Smore's! Yes in the blazing heat, but Tori wanted it so we did it! :)
Later that night we ate Ben and Jerry's and watched a chick flick. Another thing on Tori's bucket list before she left.
Monday morning we woke up early again to ride the Silver Comet Trail! It's a paved trail that starts in Georgia and goes all the way to Alabama!
Went swimming (her last time!! ahh!!)
That night we went out to the cheesecake factory, we got these delicious avocado egg rolls! If your going there, get these, they were phenomenal!
Finally we arrived at her gate and her plane was boarding, luckily she wasn't boarding until the last zone so we got to sit together a little bit longer. So while we're sitting there all three of us crying (Tori, my mom, and I) some guy walks over and sits down next to me. I had my arms holding my knees so my wedding ring was showing btw. So we're sitting there, no make up on, crying... and this guy pats me on the back and says "I just wanted to let you know that your really beautiful and I hope you cheer up. Have a good day." He then get's up and walks away... we all just looked at each other so confused. I think I need a bigger ring ;) haha, we then just start laughing. We decided he was put up to do it, a dare to talk to the most desperate hopeless looking person in the area. I won. haha. It cheered up my day and gave me something to laugh about instead of cry about though. Now she's in the MTC and I'm averaging 2 letters on Dear Elder a day. :) Hope she doens't mind a play by play of my day! It's been hard not being able to text her, call her, or send her my random pictures! She's always been my go-to for EVERYTHING!! I miss you Topi!! Can't wait for next Christmas!! Only 18 months to go! WOO!!
We went to Utah for a weekend to say goodbye to Naomi and a mini family reunion! It was tons of fun!! Went to the mountains for a lunch, and then to seven peaks for the afternoon. Ate at amazing Zuppas, and on fathers day enjoyed taco salad before heading back. It was short and sweet. Missed all of you who weren't there!
