Idaho Studs!

For my birthday, I wanted so much to go visit my Grandma Dahlquist and cousins in Boise, Idaho. My wish was granted and oh, what a time we had!! Since pictures speak much louder than words, here is how we spent our heavenly weekend with all those Idaho Studs!;-)

Mmmm...baking the yummiest Oat and Wheat Bread with the Champ!
...we also made Grandma's famous peanut brittle...yummy!
Mmmm...the finished product!!

Oooooh! I love the Boise Mall! They have the BEST pet shop!!

This was my favorite!
Ohhhh, luvs!
The best little pooch EVER!..even Jordan LOVED Grandma's new dog, Peek-a-boo
(just look at Jordan's expression!)

Giddy-up Peek-a-boo!

Watching the pro put on her "face" to see how it's done!;-)

Playing beauty parlor with the pooch!

Uncle Craig and little Maggie

Me and my Baby Cousin, Rachael...not much of a baby fact, she'll be having HER first baby in June!! just runs in the entire family!

Charly's BEST friend of the night, Uncle Craig!
(she's got her cowgirl boots on JUST for him!)
Uncle Craig and Aunt Jan live on an 18 acre farm in
Middleton, Idaho....he is a TRUE cowboy and wears his
cowboy hat and boots faithfully!...except that day he wore a ball cap!:-)

(Digressing slightly...) Jordan took me to the Roof on the day of my birthday!

My Birthday Prize...a Toaster!! Can you believe, in the 5 years
of our marriage, we have deprived ourselves of having a toaster!?!

Going to the Boise Philharmonic Dress Rehearsal...fascinating!

The Crew

The absolute best part of our trip!
My Grandma, Afton Dahlquist
Isn't she lovely!?

Thank you so much for all your heartfelt birthday wishes! It was truly wonderful!

Oh I am soooooooooooooo jealous! We need to go out there again soon! I miss everyone...especially our cute Grandma! I love how all of the kids have absolutely loved Uncle Craig....It is more of a fascination I think! I love it! And Kristin, I can't believe you haven't had a toaster! Now you can have WARM pop-tarts! And Charly can enjoy her first few pieces of toast! Hope you had a HAPPY HAPPY birthday! Looks like Idaho was AMAZING!

I'm glad you had a such a good trip! What a beautiful grandma you have! Congratulations on the toaster! Isn't it funny those things we go without for so long!

Looks like a wonderful trip! I love those people so much too!! I always want Bob to put me in his suitcase when he travels up there, which is not very often.
I truly LOVE being around my sweet Auntie Afton--as close to being around my own MOM as I can get. (and what's not to love about Craig?? He's the best!!)
