After Yellowstone we went to Rexburg and saw where Scott, and my sisters went to college. It's changed a lot since Scott was there! He didn't recognize most of it! It was pouring rain there, so we weren't there long either.
Tuesday we spent as much time as we could with Chris, he was actually off! He showed us his fire station (where he's a volunteer firefighter), it was pretty awesome! Our kids loved it! Then we played at a park and got ice cream at Reed's Dairy. Our kids loved seeing the animals afterwards! We got a huge box of Idaho potatoes (50 pounds) for $10! They're super yummy! We headed out soon after and drove to Cheyenne, Wyoming where we stayed the night.
Wednesday we drove from Cheyenne home. The original plan was to go to Winter Quarters (where we were married) and do family pictures. Instead we raced home waiting for news on my dad. He started bleeding a ton from around his feeding tube hole (that he got last week) and they couldn't get it to stop. We hightailed it and made it home about nine thirty. Soon after he was able to leave and go home. Phew!
Thursday we went to see my family and my two aunts that had come into town to see my Dad. I haven't seen them in a long time, so that was super cool! They got to meet our awesome kids!
My Dad loves them so much, he cried!
Friday was a pajama day. We needed a break, so we just stayed home and got a little cleaning done. Our boys all got buzzed!
His first haircut
Saturday we celebrated Independence Day by cleaning the church at 7:30 in the morning and then dropping Scott off to go to Home Depot and make Minion scooters. After that hour of helping six kids almost every step of the way, we were finished and found free hamburgers and hot dogs outside! Awesome! We headed to my parents' house and it wasn't too much later that they all came back from their breakfast. We got to spend the day with my family. I was able to give my dad water a couple of times and help him get adjusted in his chair. Poor dad. This is rough on him (and everyone else involved). My sister brought Kira back and cooked the meat. I got to meet my new niece! Hurray! We went home after eating and walked down to watch the fireworks. A great view from just down our street! We also saw a dog go out in front of a car and get hit, but was able to run away. Phew! We have no idea who's dog it was, so crazy! I'm just glad it was okay, because my kids were right where they could see it!
Meeting my niece!
