He got to play catcher the other day. He thought that was a lot of fun, too!
Sarah let us borrow her kids Leapsters. They were a life-saver. Here are the kids in the Idaho Falls airport waiting for their turn to get on the plane.
We made it to Arizona and were able to celebrate my Mom's birthday. The next day the lizards were everywhere. The kids had a lot of fun trying to catch them.
Boe finally caught this lizard, twice. He was holding it the first time by the tail and the tail fell off! But, then he caught it again, even though it was missing it's tail!
After we left Wikieup, we went to Camp Verde. The kids had a lot of fun playing on the playground there. We also got to play miniature golf and they had a clubhouse with pool and kids toys and games.
They also had a swimming pool that we took advantage of. My mom and dad thought we were crazy to be going swimming in the cold. But, since it was snowing when we left Rexburg, seventy degrees felt hot to us!
While we were at Camp Verde, we went to a place called Out of Africa. It was so much fun. We got to go on a safari ride through alot of the animals.
As we were getting on the bus for the safari ride, they gave us each a carrot so we could feed the giraffes. It was amazing to be so close to the animals. The kids though the giraffes breath was very stinky. Now, when someone has bad breath, they say, "You have giraffe breath!!"
The kids really enjoyed looking at all the animals. Most of them were really close so we could see them really good.
They also had a program called Tiger Splash. The people would run around with different toys and try to get the tigers to follow them into the pool. It was amazing to watch them interact with people and to jump into the water.In the Las Vegas Airport, on the way home, there were really cool sculptures of snakes and lizards and scorpions. The kids thought they were really neat.
When the kids and I got home from Arizona, my Uncle Ron, Aunt Kathy and Destiny were at our house. Uncle Ron was nice and gave all the kids rides on his motorcycle. We had fun visiting with them and with my cousin Cameron and his fiancee Nicole. We all had a great time.
