Highlights from our trip to the USA

Be warned that this post is composed of a million pics! haha


We went with my family on a picnic to Lucky Peak. My Mom and I had fun floating on an air mattress, but no one took a photo. ha
As you can see, Nathanael was having a good time.
Some people got worn out, though. hehe

My cousin, Andrew, got married while were in Idaho. It was special to be able to attend the wedding. :-)


Teddy's first ride in a swing!


Nathanael's 4th Birthday!


We gave him an 1/8 size violin. Hopefully he will follow in his Uncle Seth's footsteps. ;-)


Nathanael and his cousins had fun running around in the sprinkler park.

Ben and I celebrated our 7th anniversary a little early, since Mom was there to watch the kids for us. We ate at a romantic fondue restaurant.


For Teddy's 1st birthday, we had a "Teddy Bears' Picnic"! :-)
I can't believe Teddy is one year old already! It seems like he was just born...
He loved his party at the Boise River greenbelt. :-)
Cousins Laban and Nathanael loved playing together.

The partyers. haha
A teddy bear made out of cupcakes. :-)
Teddy loved the birthday song.

He required a little encouragement from Aunty Melody to dig in. haha


A rare shot with me in it. haha

My brother, Seth, with his lovely girlfriend, Rachel. ;-)
I was so excited to meet her. The birthday boy! :-)

We took a day trip to McCall-I love the mountains in Idaho!

Teddy in the woods. :-)
Our last morning in Idaho, Mom, Melody and I went to breakfast and tea with Rachel. It was so nice to have some girl time together. :-) We took a short trip to an antique shop, too.

Uncle Seth gave Nathanael a quick fiddle lesson right before we left, too. Nathanael doesn't last very long just yet. Haha

Well, that's all for now. Hope you enjoyed the pics of our month away. :-)
