After all the festivities with the family on Christmas, Jason, Ollie, and I began our journey to Blackfoot Idaho to spend the next few days with Jason's family. Both sets of his grandparents live there and all his siblings were up there for Christmas. We drove halfway, stayed in Elko, NV and then drove the rest of the way Saturday morning. We had a great time catching up with all of his Idaho family. Side note: I am at a hotel right now in Winnemucca, NV on our way home. We may not have internet for a while so I wanted to get this all posted.
Ollie with his great-grammy Miller
Four generations, and the rest of us :)
Cute matching boys. Aunt Michelle got these outfits for them...so cute.
This picture is kind of dark but so cute of Ollie (Mike looks ok too I guess ;)
While we were there, Jason's entire family got together to do family pictures. It was quite a group of us, but I am glad we did it. Only one person was missing, pretty impressive.
Some of Jason's cousins.
Jen, Jeff, and baby Lee.
Jan and Michelle.
Jeff and Abigail having a staring contest.
Ollie enjoyed looking at himself in this mirror.
"Man, my butt sure looks good in this diaper."
Jen and Michelle, aren't they pretty.
Ollie sharing his cracker with Porter.
We celebrated Jason's grandpa's 84th birthday. He got lots of great stuff, and little Charlie next to him was quite the entertaining narrater.
I can't get over this adorable child.
We visited my friend Tammy in Rexburg. It was so fun to see her and meet little Gabe. Rexburg has changed so much since I lived there.
We also stopped and visited my old roommate in Rigby. Our kids are 3 months apart. It was so fun to see her and her cute family, I'm so glad we keep in touch.
Someone left the vacuum out, and Ollie had a hay day. This kid loves vacuums.
Jason with some of his family.
Ollie assaulting poor Porter.
Bundled up to go see the snow.
He wasn't really a fan, I guess he is a true California boy. I thought he would want to touch it but he didn't, at all.
Poor Ollie was sick the day we left (today). He threw up a couple of times so we brought a barf bucket on the drive, which unfortunately we did end up using. Poor little guy. Here he is playing with his barf bucket BEFORE he actually barfed in it.
We had such a good time in Idaho, and wish we could make it up there more often. We are so lucky to have such great families.
