Idaho Visit

One good thing about being in between jobs is unlimited vacation time!
My parents are so great!  They had some extra miles with Southwest and the flew me out to visit them and my sister and her family.
One of the first orders of business was to head out to the corn maze.  I had lost of fun taking pictures of my cute little nieces!
Both of them have changed so much since the wedding even!
Evie's fake smiles are still so cute.  She can talk so well and is so funny!
Penny's so close to walking.  She loves to do it while you hold her hands.  Adam was happy to oblige!
Here are the happy grandparents!
They had a huge box full of corn kernels that the kids could play in.  They had so much fun and were NOT happy to get out!
I found corn all over the place the next few days!
we all wanted to drive together to the maze, but there wasn't quite room for us all.  I rode in the very back on the way there, my mom did on the way to Café Rio, and my brother did on the way home.  It was actually quite roomy!
Penny was so fun to play peek a boo with in the car!
Café Rio!!!! YUMMMMMM!!!!

 I caught a real smile from Miss Evie!

Penny loves to copy what you say.  Here I caught her saying "Let's Go, Joe!" on our way out on a walk.
They have this cool toy that helps her practice walking too.
I tried to get one of the two of them together, but they weren't cooperating very well! :)
Of course Mormon Bridge and Rook were involved in this visit.  I'm usually on the phone with them during their Sunday night game so it was fun to be there in person and actually play with them!
Evie had me paint her finger and toe nails green in preparation for her being the big bad wolf for Halloween.
Actually, I did her toenails and Susannah and I each did a hand to make it go a little faster.
Evie and Penny LOVE to play in the dirt!  Luckily Grandpa and Grandma have a good amount of it in their yard to play with!

Susannah sent this out to us on the day I arrived in Idaho.  I got it at the airport and it made me very excited to see the funny girls!
My favorite girls in the world!  Susannah has a new little girl in her belly.  No name yet, but she's due January 24th!
My dad has a little garden going in his backyard.  Having it at this height is pretty nice.  No bending involved!
Candid of Adam and the awesome bamboo plant.
We went to visit Adam's parents at their new house.  Penny was all for going on a 4 wheeler ride with Papa!
Evie hung out with us girls on the back porch.  I LOVE her little pigtails!
We then went and visited Erika and her new little guy - Leo.  So cute!!!
Love these girls!
That's another real smile from Miss Evie!
My mom was kind enough to let me borrow the new John Grisham book.  Almost done!
 I really enjoyed the fall colors in Idaho.  We don't get much of that out in Texas!

 Adam Warr made up this little song that cracked me up.  It stuck in my head forever.  Little Muscles!

This video has more Little Muscles and some fun with Penny and her little frog jump!
Pardon my jammies and smeared make-up.  These girls love to be read to - especially Evie.  I think I read this book to her about 10 times - maybe more!
