Our Trip to Idaho

We had the opportunity to visit family in Blackfoot, Id a couple of weeks ago. Milton and Liz Beasley had another baby boy, William (Billy) Beasley, and we wanted to go to his blessing. It was a good trip, too fast. Didn't get to see everyone as much as we wanted but it was fun! Nathaniel and Jonathan adore their Uncle Mike and he was at Liz's for one night so they were loving that. They got to see all the new cousins we haven't met yet. Sadly, our kids are some of the oldest so not too many to play with. Their cousin Kirsten is the oldest, though, and they really enjoyed hanging out with her. They asked her to come visit. So, Melinda you have to plan a trip out here :) It's so crazy to see Rob's brothers with kids now. Last time we saw most of them they were just newly married. Rob and I had the pleasure of holding Billy most of the time we were there. Such a little cutie and it's so fun to see the resemblance between him and our kids as babies :) While we were there Blackfoot had a parade. The following slideshow has pics from that. The two teenagers with us are Uncle Mike and Rob's cousin, Erica.

On the way home we had the chance to stop in Mountain Home and stay a night with my Uncle. The kids love his house, he has a huge backyard to run around in. Perfect for after being stuck in a car for hours :) Again, too short of time there. Seth had a ball moving a little step stool around they had in their kitchen. Though amazingly he never used it to climb up on anything else :) Thanks, Jim and Dianna, for letting us crash at your place.

We had a good time and look forward to another chance to see everyone!

I remember those "quick" trips to Idaho so well! Lot's of fun and exhausted when you get home. =)

What a fun parade. Your slideshow is the next best thing to being there. I just realized how we really didn't talk about your trip. Life's been so crazy with school starting. So glad you got to go and had such a good time with the new baby and the rest of the Beasley's.
