Yellowstone and the Playmill our "BIG" summer vacation

Carter Chicks swimming
Total Cheesers at the Swimming hole
Issy and Gabi were so happy to get a picture with the Beautiful Belle!
Looking happy :) (not really) everyone was mad at daddy for making us eat at this table instead of at the park.

Livy had to sit at the NO MAYO table! She can't even stand to be around it. Poor poor Olivia

Abbie and Brek were coming up to Rexburg to go to Kinzie's wedding so we decided to make it our vacation. All of our hearts were praying for the Sullenger Family because we had just learned that little Preslee had passed away. We were heart-broken and deeply saddened for Ashley and Pat. We were really hoping for a miracle. We know that many miracles happened within our little family; we prayed more, we spoke kinder to each other, we were all hoping with all of our hearts that little Preslee could live. We checked their beautiful blog about every 10 minutes and their sweet family were always in our minds and hearts. We love you Pat and Ashley and thank you for letting us be apart of your story, our family is forever changed for good.

We needed to be happy for Kinzie Hawkins (beautiful bride) so we tried our best to put on a happy face and went to her beautiful reception. The next morning we packed up the car and packed up the kids and off we went to Yellowstone. We were so lucky to see "Beauty and the Beast" and the Playmill. Then we drove to Firehole swimming hole and all the kids swam. It looked like so much fun! Then to top it all off we drove to Old Faithful had a delicious picnic dinner, watched a mountain man and mountain women get married (super cute with fringe jackets and everything :) they kissed each other as man and wife and Old Faithful erupted in the back ground!!!

We love it when Abs and Brek get to come home! We all miss them, but enjoy so much when they come to visit. We had a great summer trip and are very grateful for families. We have learned so much during the last week, family is what really matters! Thank you again Ashley and Pat and sweet little Preslee for changing our lives for Good.
