Rigby, Idaho!

This weekend we went to visit my sister, her husband & her 3 adorable children up in Rigby, Idaho! We stopped in Idaho Falls (which is about 15 minutes away) first to see the temple & the incredible falls! The water was moving so fast I couldn't stop counting heads every few minutes for fear someone had fallen in!
We feed the geese & ducks and Jack was enamored with it all! A few tried to eat his fingers!

Saturday we went to Bear World! It was amazing! You drove your car through a preserve filled with bear, moose, buffalo, deer, turkeys & lots of other wildlife! They were so close you could have reached out & pet them if they allowed you to unroll your car windows! The kiddos loved it!

This was one bear you could actually pet! Say cheese!

The 3 bears! :) Hannah, Nick & Eliza! There were a few fun rides and these 2 cool cats loved the coaster!

2 studs being extra brave!

Choo Choo! All aboard! I think Jack rode this train about 20 times!

Put your hands up!

There was a petting zoo with goats, pigs, deer, turkeys, a peacock and a few other animals. A baby deer was born that morning and was hiding out behind a rock. It was so adorable! There were also baby bears that you could watch playing and growling! Super cute! We feed the ducks & fish too!

Later that afternoon we went out to lunch, rode bikes (Nick learned how to ride a 2 wheeler without training wheels! Yipee!), went to the school playground, played basketball and ended the busy day with a picnic to the park complete with ice cream cones for dessert! Sunday we went to church with the Griff's and headed home! Rigby is an adorable little town & we had so much fun! We can't wait to go back again soon! Thanks for the fun weekend! We love & miss you!

Running in Utah!

When I lived in Vegas I had a great group of ladies I walked/ran with. We did several 5K's together & always had so much fun! It's not as easy to walk in Utah, especially outdoors! But this great group of girls talked me into running my first 5K since moving back. You'd think by May it would be nice enough to run outside but that morning it snowed a ton! Despite the weather it was a lot of fun!
Me & my sister in law Keri! Yes I am wearing ear muffs & gloves! It was freezing!
The finish line! Can you believe Aubrey tried to sprint to the finish & beat me? Crazy lady!
When it finally warms up let's do another one!
