Time with the family in Twin

We decided it was time to take a trip to Twin Falls Idaho and enjoy some quality family bonding. Amongst the beautiful yard, the incredible slip and slide, the Twin Falls temple, the Olympics, T-Rex play park, Michelle, Mark, Rex, Sam and of course the amazing duo Grandma and Grandpa it was a top quality weekend.

Jack had a blast exploring his new environment. Jack's world in Provo is flat, meaning we have no stairs for him to practice the baby Olympic sport of Stair Climbing lacking experience Jack was baffled by the stairs. Jack constantly found himself confronted with scary 1-3 inch stairs. To begin with he would approach and retreat until he decided that there was no chance he could over come his fear of height. After watching his cousin Sam successfully defeat every stair in his way Jack began taking note of good stair climbing tactics. I must say he can now get down stairs in a slow and steady manner which I am very proud of! Another proud moment was when Jack said "om pa" while pointing at Grandpa Rex. Oh, how he is growing up!

A beautiful morning walk to the temple.Jack was enthralled with Angel Moroni.
Ben, Mom and I went through the open house for the Twin Falls temple on Friday: it was perfect. I felt privileged to be within its walls, admiring it's beauty and feeling the spirit that resides there. I know this temple will bring great joy and blessing to those that live there.

The newspapers said that 160,000 people walked through the Temple over the last 6 weeks!

Fun moments from our trip

Checking Sam's diaper situation

Fighting the water

Bottoms, we saw lots of these two

Rex and Sam

A highlight was when Grandpa Dave joined in on the slip and slide fun.

I know its weird but one of the best things about visiting family is not having the responsibility to plan meals. Planning meals is the biggest pet peeve of mine and having a couple days of freedom is great!

We always eat like kings when we stay at Mom and Dave's home plus we got to shop in their amazing food storage pantry. Their generosity is priceless and provides a great example for us to follow.

Jack is getting so big. It seems like I haven't seen him in so long. It's a shame we don't get together more often!
Hopefully you will be in town for the twins 1st birthday.
