Idaho pictures!

I know it took me forever to get these up, but we've had a busy week. We drove up to Idaho on Thursday the 21st. We didn't get there till midnight, and Owen decided not to go to bed until 2 AM, which was quite enjoyable. We spent a lot of time with family over the weekend, and got to do lots of fun things, including the Boise art museum, two picnics, and going to the Boise temple. It was great to be able to see everyone and to introduce Owen to them.

At granny's farm.

Picnic at the park behind the Boise Art Museum while grandma takes a nap.

Daddy trying new tricks with Owen's carseat....

Family picnic at the park for grandma's birthday.

Family on the bridge during our nature walk.

Daddy and Owen looking at fish.

Grandma directing "Happy Birthday" (I forgot to adjust my camera setting from before, so this picture is exposed incorrectly... I have a lot to learn still).

Owen's first time on a swing. He loved it!

After going through the Boise temple. I don't have any good pictures of the whole thing... it was hard to get far enough away to get a good picture.

More temple. I love the stone it's built out of.

More tricks with Owen's carseat.

Dessert night at "the compound" - where four of the Niblett cousins live in Meridian.

Owen's great great grandma, 'granny'. She is Matt's mom's dad's mom. Did you get that? :)

Owen with his great grandpa Niblett.

See the border between the nice pretty sky and that huge storm? We could see it in the distance for miles. It didn't take too long to drive through, but boy was it a strong storm!

Trying to keep Owen from screaming for the last few hours by playing keep-away with the camera.

We also played a lot of Wii, ate a lot of good food, and had a great relaxing weekend. Thanks for letting us come visit, grandma and grandpa Niblett!

What fun pictures. Grandma told us about how she jumped up on the table and started directing the song and then danced a little. How funny that you got a picture of it.

It was fun to see you guys there...even if it wasn't for long. Glad you had fun and made it home.

Nicki! I had the weirdest dream last night--you gave me your baby. But you were so disapproving of how I took care of him, even when I would try to feed him you got frustrated with me and I was like "hey, i didn't ask for your baby, ok?!"

I guess that isn't as weird as Dave's dream the other night...he dreamed that Aubrey Kiene was pregnant and when he asked her if she had morning sickness she said, "no, just spouts of autism."
