We had so much fun at my moms this summer. I was able to stay a month and it really went by fast. The girls love going to see their Nana and Papa. There is something magical about going to stay at your grandparents house.
One of the days we went 4 wheeling. This was the clan, and it was awesome. My brother in law Aaron, Judson and Michelle, my older brother Brandon, John and I and Alain. It was a little sketchy for me at times. I'm not a fan of going up a cliff at a 90 degree angle. I wanted to live to see my children again! :) It was incredibly beautiful!! John of course loved the adrenalin rush, but said the best part was having me hold onto him so tight! Ohhhhhh, doesn't he just know all the right things to say! Michelle and I were so dirty! We rode up to some beautiful waterfalls and hiked down to get these pictures. There were so many cows on the trails. It looked like we were about to go bowling, but just in the nick of time they would all go scattering in every direction as we drove by. Oh, the little baby ones were so cute. Cows really are a massive animal to see up that close. I love this picture of Brandon, Michelle and I. We missed our Jamie though! It has been really fun for our family to go up to Idaho every summer. We love living by the beach, but this gives our kids an entirely different experience. Sometimes when I was jogging in the mornings I would look at fields and fields of wheat blowing in the wind as far as I could see and it was breathtaking. Just as got over this certain ridge I could begin to see the steeple of the Rexburg temple coming into view. Sometimes I would just stop and look around me. It was a sobering moment to be reminded of how blessed I really am in my life.
