Trip Home to Pocatello

A few weeks ago, I took the girls and went to my parents house in Pocatello. I planned the trip to see my sister, who flew home from Chicago, and also to go to my cousin's wedding. We had a really fun and packed week and it was so great to see my sister with her cute belly (she is having a boy in December) and just relax and of course eat a lot of good food! We started at the Eastern Idaho State Fair which was full of good food (tiger ears- YUM!) and also animals which was Abigale's favorite.
Checking out the rides:

Lydia really wanted to get this ostrich while her sister was in the petting zoo. She kept yelling at it and reaching for it.
She loved feeding the animals
This duck snapped at her finger and she thought it was hilarious:
Papa and Abigale on a kangaroo ride. She loved the rides but she couldnt stop talking about the rides at Disneyland and wanted to go back.
We spent the rest of the week helping Papa mow the lawn:
Watching BYU football:
Spending time with family (Jeffrey, my cute pregnant sister, and my grandma and grandpa):
Made dry apples:
We made three cute halloween pillows (which I am still working on finishing): Watched movies on the laptop with Nana (Abigale was obsessed with watching Frosty the Snowman and I love Lydia's smile in this pic):
Our last night all together we made a fire in the fire pit and cooked spacemaker sandwiches. It was a beautiful night and Abigale couldnt get enough of all the attention. Poor Uncle Jeffrey had a little shadow all week but he was so great with her and Abigale had a blast:

It was also Jeffrey's birthday the day after they left so we surprised him with chocolate molten cake and as you can tell he was thrilled and surprised:
Abigale is lucky to have such a fun and crazy uncle who will play her games. I think he had playdough on his eyes or something:
Jonathan came for the last few days so that we could celebrate our 5 year anniversary together while my mom watched the kids (more on that later). We also took the kids to a petting zoo/park and then out for ice cream. It was a great ending to an amazing vacation.
Looking at the puppies:
LOVE this picture:
