July 2014

Over the 4th of July weekend we headed to Payette, ID for my nephews baptism. On our way down we stopped to see some sites in Twin Falls. First we stopped to see the gorge of the snake river.

Then we stopped to see Shoshone Falls, these are some neat falls.
We got to attend my nephews baptism and on our way back we stopped at Craters of the Moon. It was one hot day about 100 degrees and windy. But we had fun checking out the craters of the Moon. We took a hike and saw a couple of the caves.

The next week we got to watch my brothers 3 kids for a week, so they could go on a vacation. We had little Miss Rosie who Sisaly just loved. They were best little buddies! Rosie insisted on wearing Sisaly's clothes- which were all a little to big but she didn't mind. The kids all got along so well, they were all so exhausted by the time the week was over! My mom and I traded off and on with Cash and Vanna so they could spend time on my parents farm and with my parents.
One afternoon we took the older kids on a horseback ride. Cash my nephew loves riding horses and is pretty brave on a horse! The kids had a blast riding horses.

Sisaly and Rosie they just played and played!

Then for a few days we went to Targee for a Farm Bureau retreat- Zak had to work and we got to play. We took a hike, enjoyed nature, went swimming, went into Driggs, and had a really nice time.

We hiked up the ski hill to where there was snow and the kids played in the snow and had a snowball fight in July!

Sisaly and I went for a little walk and she wanted to have her picture taken whereever she thought it was pretty.

The Lodge we stayed in at Targee.
Then we were home for a day and off to the Miller Reunion to celebrate Zak's grandma's 90th birthday.

The Farm Amazing Race

The 50's dance

Sisaly didn't want to dance, so her and Grandma Great watched!

The St. Anthony parade, the kids got to ride in a trailer that had a banner that said, "Grandma Miller's herd of Blessing." Sylvia also was in the parade in a side cart of a motorcycle- she loved it!
We ate good, lots of entertainment and were all exhausted by the time it was over!

Then on the 29th was my 33rd birthday- for my birthday and anniversary I got tickets to go to Wicked in Salt Lake. Both Zak and I loved the show! But unfortunley during the night Zak got the stomach flu, so we came straight home and didn't get to go do some sight seeing in Salt Lake- Bummer!

June 2014

This summer we decided we better do some Idaho History so that Hallee could know a little before she heads off to 4th grade. So on a Saturday we decided to go to Mesa Falls, we made a couple other historical stops before Mesa Falls. It is so neat. We also took a nature hike along the Mesa Falls which the girls loved.
The Family

Hallee and Sisaly
Also in June we had the annual cattle drive, this year we all camped out in tents. The girls and Zak rode horses and I drove the pickup. After the cattle drive I had my feel of camping for summer.
Then it was the Rigby Parade. Zak and Sisaly were in the Farm Bureau pickup pulling the trailer. Sisaly loved it, she just waved away.
Hallee and Blyss were on the In Step Clogging float and passing out candy. After the parade they performed in the park.
I was attempting to get a picture of the trailer
One night some girls from my ward and I went to Fiddler on the Roof. It was so good! My next door neighbor plays in the orchestra so we were supporting her too.

I am the Relief Society Activity Leader and we had a mother daught Luau. We had pulled pork, played some fun games, and of course visited!

We found out that we were expecting a baby- due Feb. 9, 2015
I went through all sorts of emotions, but I think the hardest part was that I got so majorily sick! All I could do was lay in bed and puke- no fun! The Dr. prescribed one medicine but it made me so drowsy. Then after a week and a half of being so sick I got on Zofran- what a miracle drug for me. We are getting excited and preparing for #4!

Lagoon and Gymnastics

Hallee, Blyss, and My teams all qualified to go to Lagoon. We had a great time! I took care of who ever was dancing and Zak and the other girls did the rides! The girls loved all the rides. Blyss' team took 2- 2nd places for team dance and Blyss for her solo's got 3- 1st places and 1- 2nd place- she did so good!
Hallee's team got 2- 2nd places for team dance and for solos she got 3- 1st places and 2- 2nd places for solos!

My team got a 1st place and a 2nd place on our dances.
Once all the dancing was done, I took Sisaly around on the rides she could go on. I didn't want to go on any rides because I get motion sick so easily, so it worked out great for us.
While Sisaly was enjoying her little rides, Zak and the other girls were going on the big, bad roller coasters!
Sisaly wanted a picture of her and the peacock that is sitting in the wagon.
Also in May we finished up with gymnastics- Blyss had a little competition at the end:
Blyss took 1st on her floor routine- she is so coordinated
Blyss took 2nd place on beam
She is a little gymnast, but has decided she wants to take a break this year from it.

My girls love animals! So when the animal exhibit came to the Library we had to go check it out. Sicaly loved it. We went around and checked out each animal, then she wanted her picture taken with her favorite animals.

It was story time that day and they talked about animals and Sicaly got to make a mask and she wanted a zebra mask.
Sweetie the cat, she really is such a good cat. She put up with so much.

My brothers dog had puppies again, so I took the girls over to their house a couple of times to play with the puppies and get their fill of puppies and dogs.
Sicaly helping feed a brand new baby calf. They love playing with the baby calves at the farm.

And this is our brand new addition- Princess the kitten. The girls just fight over her and love on her like crazy. She is Sicaly's kitten. So that everyone could have a pet. But that only lasted a week. Blyss' hampster Summer, got out of her cage and have still not found her.
