Babby Farms

Last week we ventured over to Babby Farms in Caldwell. They are a petting zoo with exotic animals such as kangaroos, buffalo and camels. Even though it was super hot,  we all had a great time.

We went with cousins Aaron and Sunny

Jackson and Madison both love animals and did great

Maddie wanted to pet every animal she saw

The Yak liked Nick

The kids were able to go into the kangaroo enclosure and pet and feed them also. Pretty fun day

doctors checkup, roaring Springs, and Megan Trainor concert

Last weeks schedule was busy and full of fun events.  Thursday evening, I took Bailey to a Megan Trainor concert. It was Bailey's first concert, so it took her a while to loosen up. We went with our friends and Grandpa and Grandma Davis came too!

Then on Friday the Babies had their18 month checkup. The doctor was still concerned with the size of Jackson's head so he ordered another head ultrasound to see what's going on and why his soft spot is still open.  His ultrasound will be in the next few weeks. They are very active babies and seem perfectly fine to me.

Then Saturday, Trent and I took the older kids to Roaring Springs Water Park for the day. We all had a great day and were pooped out when we got home. Between the wave pool, lazy river and all the slides it wore us out!

bike ride on the greenbelt

Today I took all 4 kids on a bike ride on the Eagle Greenbelt with Grandpa and Grandma. Nick was tired after about 10 minutes and wanted to head back, so the bike ride was pretty short. The babies love the bike trailer and did great even though it was nap time. Afterwards we got to play at the park and get shaved ice before heading home


Maddie absolutely loved playing at the splash pad

Successful but short bike ride and park day

Happy 4th of July!

I can't believe it is already July. This summer is flying by. We headed out to the God and Country firework show last Wednesday and enjoyed the evening watching fireworks with my parents and some friends. Bailey and Nick love playing with all the kids until the fireworks show started around 10pm.

Then for the 4th we headed to Melba with my mom (Trent and Jackson stayed home) and watched their parade. The kids got so much candy thrown at them that it was like Halloween. If you want to see how exciting a melba, ID parade is, here are the highlights....

We headed back to my moms for a BBQ lunch with cousins. Maddie loves sitting on grandpas lap and sharing his food (especially if it is sweet)


 Then we headed back to Star to join more friends for the City fireworks show. Nick loved rolling down the hill and they both love playing with their friends all evening. It was also chilly that evening so we huddled under the blankets for the show.... I love Idaho weather.

(Jackson missed out on most of the festivities because he doesn't like a lot of noise so Trent stayed with him most of the day)

We had such a wonderful 4th celebrating our freedom with friends and family. We love our country and grateful for all those who have served to help protect it. Happy 4th everyone.
