Idaho Trip

Aubriana and I took a flight out to visit my family in Idaho a week ago. My brother Tyler and Marilyn were up from California visiting and we had to make the trip to see them considering its been almost 2 years! :) The trip went really smooth... lots of laughing and volleyball tournaments and family! I'll just share a few of the pics I took below, the rest are on my Flickr account... CLICK HERE if you would like to see them or copy any of them to your computer. (Make sure you are viewing the full size of the picture before saving to your computer or else you'll just be stuck with a little thumbnail. Enjoy!)

Aubriana has changed dramatically in the past couple of weeks. During the whole trip to Idaho, she decided it was appropriate to GLARE at all the men. If you were a guy, you were getting glared at. It was quite humorous. She also has like 7 teeth now, the eighth tooth is starting to break through now. She loves to walk around if you are holding one of her hands. Tim and I have caught her a couple of times walking from one place to the next but then she gets down on all fours and decides that its faster that way... we don't think we really want to rush the walking. She has also discovered how to climb onto the couch, yikes.

My Mom took Tyler up on the Butte with the 4 wheeler and Lynlee and I decided to follow with Aubriana. We followed way behind due to the dust my mom would kick up and because I had to drive quite slow with my baby on tow. We had fun and Aubri loved it, she was singing on the way back and the scenery was just gorgeous!

These are about the only pictures I got of Desi the whole trip... well, this is mostly when we got to see her. She had her Volleyball tournaments all weekend long. We were there, however, to cheer her on...

Desi's cheer squad looking cute! Tyler (holding Aubri) Lynlee, me and Marilyn.

Desi's cheer squad in action! We had a lot of fun embarrassing ourselves and my mom. Marilyn even made up a cheer: BUMP, SET, SPIKE IT.... THAT'S THE WAY WE LIKE IT, UH! GO RIG-BY!

Here's the cheer squad after our own little family game of Volleyball, cut short due to Marilyn's wedding ring flying off her "pinkie" finger. Luckily we found it and all was good.

All of my mom's side of the family got together and we had Dutch-oven yummy goodness. Above is a cute pic of my cousin Krissa and Jenna with their nephew Dylan and Aubriana.

My cousin Justin and my brother Tyler.

The boys "trying" to shoot the skeet.

The girls "actually" shooting skeet. My brother and I had a shoot off before I left Idaho and he shot 1 more than me. ugh! But then we taught Lyn to shoot and she beat us both. ha ha!

Here's a pic of Lynlee and her boyfriend Brett... no Chett, Terret, Rhett. One of those names. It's really Rhett. :) He's new to the fam so we have to give him a hard time. It's the rules.

Andrea and her cute little girl Jaci.
Cute little Jackson on the left, Emily and Samuel in the middle and Krissa holding Aubri.
Aunty Paula in action and Justin pigging out.

Finally I had to share a picture of Aubriana and Bear. Bear is the sweetest dog. He loved Aubri. He went and laid next to her and licked her hand and loved on her. It was so sweet!
