Star Valley

We took our annual trip to Star Valley, WY. My cousin has some property up there, so we pack on up for a weekend getaway usually every September. It is beautiful up there this time of year.

We had a great time! The kids ran around all weekend. Seth and Mia loved playing with all the kids. My cousins' boys LOVED Mia, and lugged her around everywhere. They even spoon-fed her at meals. She was like a little princess that didn't have to do anything for herself! Seth LOVED having all these kids to growl at and chase around (hmmm...I hoped they liked being chased?!?).

Anyways, here are a few pictures...compliments of my dad (since we forgot our camera...okay, I forgot our camera!).

Seth and his first catch. He has been so excited to go fishing ever since he saw Caillou (a cartoon on PBS) go fishing. So Grandpa Trujillo bought him a SpongeBob fishing pole...and what do you know, he caught a fish! The poor little fish was only 10 inches long (if that), but he swallowed the hook....so we had to keep him. I am sure him swallowing the hook had nothing to do with Seth violently yanking the line while reeling him in! Here is Seth, Grandpa Trujillo, and Taylin.

Here is Seth on the paddle boat with Brody and Kaysea.

Here we are after a little family ride on the 4-wheeler.

First Day of Preschool!!!!

Today was Seth's first day of Preschool! I can't believe we are at this stage already. He LOVED it. He walked right in and was so excited to "stay by [him]self."

Here we are getting ready to leave. Mia had to be a part of it all too!

There he is...the scholar!

The Farm

So, we visited the Farm at Thanksgiving Point last week. The kids had a great time seeing all the animals. Mia especially LOVED this calf. He stuck his head out of his fence and started licking her. She instantly lifted her shirt so he could lick her belly. I started laughing. Silly girl!

Seth was quick to follow.
