Idaho Falls at Dusk


It’s good to be back!! It’s been a while since I’ve had full-blown internet access; so I have a few unanswered emails, over 900 unread items in google reader and this blog has been neglected. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do!

Last week we decided to take a last-minute trip to see Chris’s grandparents. We had been trying to decide when to visit and then it looked like they might have a buyer for their home so we rushed up in hopes to catch them before moving chaos. The timing couldn’t have been better for all of us! On the way to Bigfork, we made a detour to Idaho Falls for a helicoptor ride and Island Park for a relaxing Saturday and Sunday with friends and their family.

River from the Helicopter

Doyle [my friend’s dad]  just got a helicopter and license so he was anxious to take it for a spin. He did a great job of making it a smooth ride!


I can’t tell you how incredibly excited I was to ride in a helicopter. It was really cool, as evidenced by the 150 photos that I took.



Seriously huge thanks to Alexis and Chad for inviting us, and to Doyle and Elizabeth for the hospitality. We had so much fun!!

A Hostage Situation

Dear Vivian,

If you ever want to see your dear dolphin (or platypus?) ever again; meet me at the park tomorrow at noon with my mom’s green plates. OR ELSE!!

Vivian’s Response:


Update: Dolphin and green plates were returned to rightful owners. No harm or incident occurred at the park.

The Cat in the Hat


The Cat in the Hat

The sun shone so brightly.
It was perfect weather for play.
So we went to Pottery Barn
on that bright, January day.

We had a lot of fun going to see the Cat in the Hat on Saturday at the local Pottery Barn. Thanks Jane for initiating it.

We arrived just in time to see the Cat in the Hat make his big entrance, but had to stow our strollers and by the time we got back, there was a line spanning the store. We were all so bummed that the line materialized so quickly. The wait wasn’t too bad, though. We were waiting in Pottery Barn for goodness sakes, there are cute things to look at/play with all over the place.
