Over the river and through the woods to Idaho Falls we went!

James had been planning this visit to Big Jud's and really talking the place up to Jody & Dave (reeeeally talking it up) so we all hungarly caravaned to the middle of nowhere & upon arrival Jody is shaking her head thinking this can't be good...just look below, that's a pretty quiet neighborhood to find an eating joint

but once we stepped in we all got a lot happier

This guy below never doubted himself

My burger above was thee best choice on the table, it was too good. Western bacon cheeseburger, just look at those onion rings!
Just so you know, when he flares his nostrils that means 'don't mess with this'

James had been talking up this trip to 'Ricks College' for weeks telling the girls how excited they should be to see his Man of the Year plaque and he was looking forward to the girls feeling such pride in their Dad seeing his picture up there until we got to the hall and found that BYU Idaho had to change a few things...but we still had fun running through the halls :)

uhhh, i forgot which one was mine...i just remember it was red.

 Holidays are the best time to goof off at college, at least that's what we told them.
 Bryn enjoys impersonating her Dad any chance she gets (that's the real reason he reads his scriptures)
 Summer rocked this boy to sleep in the middle of all the chaos

 It was an awesome kitchen crew.
 they are meditating over what they are thankful for or...actually praying "I hope the food is good, I hope the food is good"

 Do you think Eliza caught that football?

 Raise your hand if you think you're handsome...ok you both win.
 i think this means that i'm Garrett's favorite
 Bryn can even make chores look easy breezy cover girl.
 he just told me that i'm his favorite!!!

Oh what fun and so yum, never had a moment of feeling glum!Although deep depression set in for our kids when they realized we were just visiting and had to come back to their home that was so quickly forgotten. We hurried to set up the tree and train with high hopes but it still took a couple days to recover as you can see in the above picture.

I love the walk down memory lane at "Ricks"... we need to tell James he can't call it that any more! What fun and frolic with the best family! It almost makes me want to move to Idaho!
