Day: January 18, 2018
Our time in Idaho has been action packed! We’ve been helping my mom move to a flat in Idaho Falls, spending time with the Keck Family and Kjira, and getting my medical nonsense taken care of. We also made a another trip to Utah to a special family baptism. It was so fun to see the creatures with their cousins again. Aidan and Emma were born a few months after their cousin, Gabriel, so the three of them were often referred to as ‘the triplets.’
The three of them are still just as cute together!
They are all such a goofy, fun bunch.
We sat and played games through the night and. Into the morning hours.
Kjira took Jake and us to Targhee Ski Resort for a day and taught her siblings how to snowboard.
They did so well as I followed them around on ski’s.
The view from the top of the mountain was so gorgeous.
We played and played, had a BBQ in the parking lot,
until Aidan got nauseated, tachycardia confusion and extremely pale. We recognized it as altitude sickness, had him checked by the first aid nurses and they confirmed it, and left to get him to lower elevation. We of course had to stop for a square ice cream cone in Swan Valley.
Everyone was freezing so they ended up with a hot drink in one hand and an ice cream in the other!
At the Keck’s house we built a snowman.
We rolled snow into huge balls very quickly – it was perfect conditions for snow man building.
Jake had to help us lift the huge, heavy balls of snow…
The final result was an anatomically correct happy snowman.
Dave and ZoAnn made sure we made him an IT right away!
Mycah is now the proud owner of another Teton instrument. She has progressed beautifully in her ukulele playing and has wanted a better quality instrument, and picked out a Teton. While she was in the store trying it out she sang as she played, and was asked to record a couple of songs with them for their Youtube channel.
She did an absolutely beautiful job. I’ll keep you posted when they air it.
We left Idaho Falls yesterday and have traveled to be with our friends, the Whitaker’s, just outside of Townsend, Montana. After being here a few days we will continue on to Nebraska to be with Hunter, Nonna and our sweet baby, Zailyn. Her first birthday is January 27th and we are so excited to share it with her.
Montana is absolutely gorgeous! We are sledding, tubing, exploring, playing games, watching movies and hot tubbing. Life is good and many photos will follow…
