Last weekend we headed to Idaho for a relaxing few days to celebrate Grandma Jane's birthday. We'd all been looking for to that visit since we left after Thanksgiving, but it almost didn't happen. On Tuesday of that week I found out that our giant shipment of Girl Scout cookies was to be delivered for us to pick up at 12:30 that Saturday!! But luckily some of the moms came to my rescue and were able to pick them up and deliver them to our garage. Whew!
Cody took Friday off of work with the hope that we could get an early start on the road as soon as kids got home. But we ended up letting them play hookie that day any way. I spent the morning over at the high school where the girls' ballet is being held and I worked on the set. I am so excited for how it turned out!! I got home, we ate lunch, packed up, and hit the road.
The weekend was fantastic. That night Jane read the kids a new book she bought them, called "Skippy Jon Jones". I swear she read it at least eight times that weekend and the kids laughed just as much each time! Then we popped popcorn with their old-school air popper and the kids were enthalled with it. Then we watched the original "Karate Kid" for family movie night and it was the kids' first time seeing it. Such a classic!
