We love Idaho!

I made a quick trip to Idaho to scatter children to the four winds. My girls went to Buhl to visit my Aunt and Uncle's family and Jacob and Caleb went to visit Grandpa and Grandma Jake. We went to Swan Valley to listen to my cousin Riker speak before his mission and I was able to see my grandparents and lots of Jacobson family. It was nice. This is my dad, overlooking the Palisade Dam, asking the grandkids, "How far do you think grandpa can throw a rock?" :)

While we were there, we celebrated the 24th of July with Natalie's stake. They had a nice BBQ and activities for the kids. Caleb waited in line and rode the horse.
Jacob turned 15 on the 26th. This is him, threatening small cousins to not blow out HIS candles!

And this is Jacob showing off his gifts. It is a fishing vest and big black rubber boots for wading in after the fish, just in case they make a run for it. Love you, big guy! You are growing up well!

I love Natalie's 24th celebration thing-I took Murdy last year and we had a fantastic time! Glad you got to go too.
Happy Birthday Jake!!! Handsome kid.
Hooray for Idaho!
