Getaway Weekend

While in Boise, my parents graciously agreed to watch the girls for a couple days so Ben and I could have a little late anniversary trip :)

We started it off right by buying Ben a new mountain bike, so now we are bike twinners!!
 So excited to have some time together!
 Mountain Biking at Fort Boise
 A little Batting practice at Wahooz
 Chicago Connection... We miss you!!
 To the Movies!!!
 A little more mountain biking...
 Top it all off with Lunch at Harry's... best fish and chips around!
We had such a nice, relaxing time! Thanks again Mom for watching the girls!!!

Boise Summer 2012

The night we pulled into Boise, the girls were SO EXCITED to be there! That and we had about 30 hours of driving to wear off!
 We stayed at Stacy & Michael's house to keep out of everybody's hair, since they had an entire empty upstairs we could use. I loved getting to see this little Linky-boy every morning and night!
 Ellie & Brook got golf clubs from Grandma & Grandpa!
We waited for Dad to get into town to try them out.
 We had a cousin's birthday party, complete with face painting! Jen & Stacy did a great job organizing it! The kids had so much fun!
 Oh these three little divas... we are in trouble sisters!
 Canoeing with Grandpa while we wait for Dad's plane to get it :)
 Hooray!!! DAD IS HERE!!! We missed him SO SO SO much! I was so happy to pick him up- even at 12:15 am!
 Building towers, catching up on time away
 Still catching up
 Golfing with the Douglass Fam
 Oh Ellie, you are so funny
 Saturday evening we had a BBQ with some friends- we got schooled by the Scrabble Master that is Taylor Whitney.
 Cute girlies!
 Poor Ellie got an infection while we were there... her little heel was really sore!
 Ellie & Grammy :)

 Ellie loved to snuggle with Neenaw!
 Saying goodbye to cousin Evy
 This is how her heel ended up looking after two days... Poor thing!
All in all, we had such a fun trip and it was so good to see family and friends!
Love & Miss!
