In March we took a family trip to Boise. We decided it'd be best to go earlier in the year since by summer time I would be too far along in the pregnancy to want to take a 8+ hour road trip.
I was HORRIBLE at taking pictures on this trip. I guess I just got caught up in the moments instead of trying to document it all. Especially since we were there for almost an entire week. But we had a lot of fun while we were there. We got to see my mom (Grandma Tutu), brother Nathan, and my sister Kayla with her baby Alexis (she flew up from Colorado). We saw my Grandma Thornock, my cousins and my Aunt Melanie and Uncle Greg (they let us stay at their house for the week which was sooo nice too since my mom's house was a bit crowded with Kayla and Alexis staying there). We also paid a visit to a few others while we were there. It was good to be home for a little while.
|We stopped by The Alps candy store just out of Leavenworth on our way. It has become tradition for the kids to get a big lollipop for the car trip. Ethan didn't want his picture taken. He was a bit grumpy but you can see his hand behind Kiera's shoulder in the top picture.|
|Grandma Thornock with Baby Alexis. Isn't she the cutest little chunk you ever did see?!|
|Grandma and the kids. I hope she gets to meet our little one on the way too!|
We were spoiled a bit by some old family friends (Dale and Kathi Lee) who let us come over and go horseback riding. The kids have probably ridden a horse more times in their life than I ever did by now. I wanted to get on for a ride soooo bad but decided it'd probably be best if this pregnant mom stayed on the ground this time.
|Isn't she the cutest! Well...both of them actually. Love you Kayla and Alexis!|
