Yep, we are moving again. But don't worry. It's just our blog that is moving this time. I am finally updating my email address to my married name and figured its about time to get a better (even if its somewhat uncreative) blog address for our family while I'm at it.
So here we go...all the SUNDAY BEST posts will now be found at
So I'm not always the best at taking pictures when there are lots of fun things going on. However, I was able to get a few snapshots of our Sunday Family camping trip to Palisade State Park. Thanks everyone for making it a great time. I have you to blame for the 10 pounds I gained from all the delicious food we had. :)
Over the weekend I got to take Brandon to my Grandpa's farm in Aberdeen, Idaho. Man, how I love that place. I spent lots of time there as a kids. Memories of tractor rides, harvesting potatoes, riding horses, treasure hunting in the old house, playing hide and seek, working in the garden, being in the Aberdeen Days parade, and four wheeling are just a few of my favorite memories of his farm.
I remember talking to my friends as a child and thinking how much they were missing out if they didn't have a grandpa who lived on a farm. I loved all the time on the farm! Although the farm has changed quite a bit since then, I was able to capture a few of my favorite things so I can always remember Grandpa's farm.
I love this old truck!
the gas tank we would fill up the four-wheelers with
the famous tractor
the cute little house
the potato cellar where we would stash all the potatoes
I love this pillow and check out the print of the couch!

Ok, you are probably sick of pictures and reminiscenses. So I'll be done. The end.
Because we had the Friday off for Pioneer Day, we just had to do something fun. We decided to stop at Lava Hot Springs on our way up to Idaho. Justin, Katie, Emme, Sarah, Hollie and Michael all thought that was a pretty good idea too.
Picnic #1-our pre-swim lunch on the back of the car
Justin and Brandon had to show off how mocho they are by jumping off the highest platform
and now, for the grossest part of the entire trip. I was sitting on a towel, basking in the sun. Justin and Brandon were goofing around like they always do when all of a sudden, I felt a sort of water balloon 'pop' on my leg. I was a bit confused because to my knowledge, I didn't think they had any water balloons. I looked down only to discover that a water balloon had not 'popped' on my leg but a seagull had just flown overhead. Enough said. (Warning...Graphic picture below)
I just about lost my lunch over that and had to clean it about 5 times. It was Dis-gus-ting.
After swimming, we cleaned up nicely to head to my cousin's wedding reception. We were starving as swimming makes you feel, so we had picnic #2-on a little grassy spot by the Blackfoot Wal-Mart. Gotta love it.
All of us at my cousin Jason and Heather's wedding reception.
