A Trip Home to Montana!

My Brother Tanner, who goes to BYU, was going back home for a week in between ending and starting semesters and I thought that it was the perfect opportunity for me and the girls to go and see my mom and dad and two sisters up in MT. So we hopped in the car with Tanner and drove the 10 plus hours. The drive to and from Billings was painfully long and I'm certain Tanner will never agree to be in the same car with us ever again (thanks for being a good sport Tanner!) but it was worth it! We spent 7 days playing, shopping , eating, chatting and being taken care of and super spoiled by my wonderful mom! Jake even surprised me and flew up Thursday night and stayed until Sunday! It was such a great week and I'm so glad we went! The only bad part about it is that I'm more home sick than ever and Gracie and Brynlee are constantly asking to go see "Gama and Papa" and " Toey and Mill" (Chloe and Camille...my two sisters at home) Thanks for such a Wonderful week, we miss you guys!


I had some good intentions on taking lots of pictures while we were there...but of course I never thought to get the camera out! I did however snap a few when my mom took the girls to Build-A-Bear Workshop which was a lot of fun! (Sorry they are all out of order!)
Gracie "Bathing" her newly stuffed bear

Making a wish on the little heart they stick inside the bear

Brynlee putting some "makeup" on her bear

Putting the heart in the bear

The finished product! Bella and Ellie Bear, poor Ellie has already lost a shoe! I think my mom and I had more fun picking out all the clothes and accessories...there was SO much to choose from!

Oh my goodness, your girls look so old! And very cute I might add. I bet you had so much fun going home, I'm jaylous. I think it's time for another lunch/playdate, what do you say?

Oh... this is too cute! I know what you mean about being homesick. We are going to AZ next week and I am already sad that we have to eventually come back to ID. Aren't our mom's the best! They really do spoil us, and our kids, just like Grandma taught them too! PS: Don't hesitate to call if you ever want to crash here again. I know it's crowded, but it's so much fun!

Grandma Cindy is the best :) How fun a whole week of being spoiled! Rylee and I are headed up to Billings for a week at the end of May and I can't wait. It does always make me homesick though :)

Don't you just love trips home? Too bad that drive is so long :( That build-a-bear looks so fun. I want to do one for myself!

What cute little girls! My mom and Dad took kaylee a while ago to do that, and we too were having fun finding outfits. Kaylee loved that bath thing. I am impressed with the names your girls picked out, kaylee had a bunny and named her Bunny. Sounds like such a fun trip!

Kenna, this looked like so much fun! I can't believe how long Gracies hair is getting, and little Brynlee looks so cute with her top pig tails:) We are having a great time at mom and dads and wish you were still here!!! Time for another trip home:)
