Idaho Summer 2015

We enjoy going to Idaho every summer to spend time with Ryan's family.  It is the only time our kids get to see that side of the family.

We spent a wonderful day at Yellowstone.  It was fun to go hiking and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and catch glimpses of wildlife.  Some of us watched Old Faithful go off twice as we waited for the second group to catch up...and we were all hungry at lunch time! 

We also spent some time at a park while one of my nieces had a softball game.  The younger kids had a great time running around on the grass.

Utah/Idaho Summer 2015 Part 1

We enjoyed some time in Utah and Idaho...and ended up leaving Kessiah for an extra two weeks.  Nana and Papa were able to take her to an outdoor adventure camp that is part of her school.
On our way up we stopped at the Glen Canyon Visitors Center to eat...some went on the bridge.


Kessiah, Jenessa, Sienna, and Ryan had fun at Big Rock Candy Mountain doing some ropes courses.  During that time I had the boys in Richfield where we went to the park and went swimming.

We went to Yellowstone with Kerry & Patty's family.  We enjoyed seeing "Old Faithful" and going on a couple of hikes.  During one part of the hike we went down a fairly steep hill to a river.  The little boys thought it was great fun to throw sand and rocks into the river.

We don't always take the time to drive by the Idaho Falls Temple.  It was undergoing reconstruction so we couldn't get very close.
