While we were on vacation in Idaho
we went "caving"!
We went to the
Near Rexburg.
So fun!!

When we got there the sun was just setting and it was beautiful.
It didn't matter that it was getting dark
because the caves are dark anyway.

OK...Sometimes I make myself laugh...really hard.
Usually I laugh at myself when I do something that isn't so smart.
And while hiking in the caves I made myself laugh.
Instead of using the flashlight app on my phone I used my cameras pre-flash for light.
And while doing that I took an amazing amount of pictures of my feet, Mike's feet, and the rocks.
They are some really nice pictures.

The kids had a blast hiking through the pitch black caves.
I was impressed with their ability to scale rocks in darkness.

While in there we tripped, bumped our heads, got a little scared, and some of us may or may not have voided, but it was a super amount of fun and one of our fondest memories of our vacation.

We also had just about the best excursion guides ever!
My cousin Ike and his lovely wife Shauna.
They and their kids were super fun and made us laugh.

And the stars!!
 I wish everyone could see stars like we saw when we came out.
It was more than amazing.

Dear Ike and Shauna,
Thank you for helping me make some memories! We had a blast that night and my kids are still talking about it. You two are the best tour guides ever and I love you.

Gosh it's been long...

Sure has been a while since I've posted on my little blog.
Miss me much?
I thought so.
It's Thanksgiving weekend.
I love this weekend.
I love to eat,
and laugh,
and love on my kids.
And I have done all of that these last couple of days.
And now we have to move on to
I love Christmas.
Everything about it.
Mostly I love kids and Christmas.
And my dangity kids are growing up and changing Christmas for me.
And so this season while I am trying to wrap my brain around my ever changing life, I'll try and keep this song stuck in my head.

Dear Christmas,
I have always loved you~ everything about you.
Please don't fade away.

Today my heart belongs to my sister
Today is her birthday.
She is super talented and an amazing mother.
She is a great example
and I hope I am just like her someday.
She makes me laugh and I think she's smart.
Dear Mychael-Ann,
I hope your day is really wonderful!! I hope you get a few minutes to yourself and that the rest of your day you celebrate with your cute family. I miss you more than I miss sleep. I love you more than I love chocolate.

I missed it

It being my Mike's Birthday.
I cannot believe I missed a post about his birthday.
He is the one who loves me the most in the world.
He is good and kind.
He is the BEST dad ever.
He also happens to be very handsome.
I am thankful for him.
Dear Mike,
I am sorry I missed your birthday. I'm sorry for lots of things. But I love you and I'm thankful for you.
