Visiting Idaho

We attempted to set a speed record for visiting family in the west in June. We were gone a total of 5 days including travel I think. It was 3000+ miles of fun.

We got to see family we don't get to see very often and meet new babies born since we last visited. We got to celebrate babies and anniversaries and birthdays in our short visit. It was fantastic!

Visiting family is important and worth the time and money IMHO. While it would be ideal to just live near everyone, with family from coast to coast, it just isn't possible for us and Texas is right smack in the middle.

Here Munchkin looks away since I'm taking a picture, right after she inspected her new cousins.

Here is Trainboy holding his newest cousin.

Here are the birthday girl and birthday grandpa who share a birthday.

Here are some cousins enjoying one of the best kid toys - a pile of dirt and sticks.

Here is Munchkin and Fixitman with cousins in the best picture from an amusing series.
And here is part of the kid gang enjoying a trampoline.

There's a great story that happened shortly after this photo was taken. It involves the phrase "You know what would help?" My advice is to not say that phrase to your kids.

And the best part of visiting grandparents may be when Grandpa agrees to read a book to you over and over and over and over...
