Trip to Idaho Part III

One of the things that I really wanted to do while in Idaho was visit my Mother's gavesite. Marianne, Dad and I took a trip to Twin Falls and stayed with my brother and his family. We had a great time visiting with them. We also visited with my Dad's brother and two of my Mom's sisters. It was so good to see all of them. We took one day to drive to Rupert and see the cemetary. We wanted to leave some flowers but forgot a vase so we had to be creative and make do.


All of the kids had to take a turn smelling the flowers. I don't know if Lauren really knew what she was doing or not.


Taking pictures.


The other kids looking at the other graves.




Taking a little walk before driving back to Twin Falls.

We were quite cosy in the car. Our niece came with us and so we borrowed my brother's suburban to fit us all. Three in the back, three in middle and two in front.
Maycee just barely fit between Dillon and Lauren's carseats.


Dillon was tuckered out.


This was taken later that day at my Aunts. Lauren and Maycee love to dress up. Kylie is my cousin's daughter so I guess these guys are 2nd cousins? She was helping the girls get dressed.


We had a great time visiting with all of the different family. I still miss my Mom a lot and she is in my thoughts even more as the holidays approach. So it was really good to have a quiet moment or two at the cemetary.

Wow, one kid holding each hand....just thinking how that is going to be like with my babies.

Your mom was a very special woman, I'm glad you got to visit her grave when you were in Idaho. She raised great people and what better legacy is there than that?
