Hall of the Mountain King

This is a tradition of Ben's family.All of the kids would listen to Hall of the Mountain King and gradually go faster and faster with the music. Our kids LOVE it and will do it over and over and over and over and over...

This was a few weeks ago so we were not very unpacked yet and the walls are pretty bare.

Hop Hop and Away!

Ben found a praying mantis outside and brought it inside to show it off. Needless to say, I get a little jumpy around bugs, especially when they are inside!

Farewell Dear Rexburg...

I have delayed this post because there is just TOO much to put into it. My heart pours out with gratitude when I think of our time spent in Rexburg. Thank you all for a wonderful 2 1/2 years. We made the best of friends and had the best of times. We will always look back on our time spent in Rexburg with great fondness.
Thank you to so many for your generosity in helping us with our kids and with cleaning, and even lodging the last couple of weeks and days of packing and such.
The following are a few pics of things we did in our last few weeks of living in sweet Rexburg:
4th of July parade in Rexburg, it was chilly but an excellent parade!

We spent the 4th of July with the Woolleys in Driggs. We all had a great time, thank you Woolleys!

Hannah and her cousin, Olivia, were thrilled to see they had the same coat.

We walked to the Rexburg Farmer's Market and Evelyn rode her bike (I forgot to post that, Evelyn can ride a 2-wheeler!). Hannah and Will enjoyed the ride.

Oh how we love the Casalinos and the Farmer's Market! We've missed it since we've been gone!

We love visiting Elsy! She became a good friend and almost like a grandmother to our kids.

We took a short break from packing to see the Blue Angels. I didn't get a picture of them, but I thought every one was cute waiting for them to come. Ben's sister, Nellie, came with us. The kids have been yelling in the van since we've been in Utah, "Newwie, Newwie, NELLIE!" and William says, "Newwie gone. Newwie? Newwie! Newwie gone..." So sad.
Rexburg we love you and miss you! Thank you all for making our time there so special!

On the Calendar

Jessica: Do you guys think we should go to Seattle for Thanksgiving?
Evelyn: Hm. I dunno. It depends on what we have on the calendar.
Hannah: We have wots of fishies on the calendar.
