Hawaiian Paradise

Our 7 year anniversary is tomorrow, so to celebrate, Trent and I took a night away. This was the first time that we have gotten to spend the night without the kids since Bailey was born. My parents agreed to watch them overnight (which is not easy with my two)and since they will be gone the next 18 months we decided to jump at the chance.

We stayed at the Anniversary Inn in Boise and stayed in the Hawaiian Paradise Room. It really was amazing and so nice to get to spend the night without worrying about getting home to the kiddos.

Perfect way to celebrate 7 years.

Campbell Family Reunion

Last weekend we went to the Campbell Family Reunion near Logan Utah, but the campsite was actually in Southern Idaho. We had a great time...probably because we stayed in a hotel instead of camping. The kids loved being outside all day playing with their cousins and getting nice and dirty. I also got to stop and see my BFF Samantha! YEAY!

Bailey loved walking over the tree trunk bridges- she went back and forth all day long

And of course, they loved the water fountain that they could work themselves

A day at the Boise Zoo

Aunt Pam is here visiting Idaho (from San Luis Obispo, CA) for a week, so we took her to the zoo with us today. A few friends of mine were going today since it was half price, so we decided to head there also. Brandy, Cousin Aaron and Grandma came too!

The 3 kiddos, Aaron, Nick and Bailey

Nick did not want to be in his stroller, but wanted to walk like the other kids

Big Changes

few big changes are taking place for our family.

1st- Our stake is being split and our ward boundaries changed. Last week it was announced that my small subdivision street along with 4 others behind our house are being switched to another ward that meets in another building. It will be nice to be released and not have to be in charge of the monthly "Enrichment" meetings, but will be hard leaving all my friends and familiar people behind. There are only a few of us leaving, but at least I wont be starting all over.

2nd- this is the parents turned in their mission papers a few weeks ago, and got their call today. They will serve for 18 months in the Baltic States Mission, that encompasses Lativia, Estonia and Lithuania. They will be over CES (Church Educational System)like the seminary program and working with the youth and YSAs. If you are from the Fresno West Stake, you probably know that President Boswell is the Mission President already over there. He made a "request" for them to come. They will report to the MTC Oct 31.....And yes...we WILL housesit for them while they are gone, which works out perfect as Trent will be done with school when they get back....yeay

Enjoying our summer

We have been really busy this summer, but having lots of fun. We have gone to several "movie at the park" nights and the kids absolutely love them. We don't get home until after midnight, but the next day is Saturday so we get to sleep in. We have also been enjoying all the parks around here and the perfect weather.

Here we are at Settlers Park in Meridian waiting for it to get dark and Despicable Me to start.
