Utah and Idaho portion

So after I got my fill of Rosas, and the snow cleared off the roads up north. I packed up the van with the kids and drove from Mesa, AZ to Roy, UT to sleep at Esthers house for the night. The all day drive by myself was actually great. The kids traveled really well. I think I only stopped 3 times, maybe 4. But no one screamed at me and that was 10 hours of driving. I think Jax slept alot...and ate alot!
We got up the next morning packed up again, drove a bit to visit Grandma and Grandpa Hollist. Stayed with them a few hours then drove up to Rexburg, Id to see my brother and his family.
I got a nice break in Idaho. Mandi spoiled me by watching my kids so I could play. 
First Justin flew me to Driggs for lunch.
Idaho in the spring.
(Packing for 3 kids, for 3 weeks and going from hot Mesa to cold Idaho...challenge.
Just wanted to throw that in)
I think this was the flight back. I was full on my delicious black and blue burger.
Jax playing at the lamb house.
Then Mandi watched my kids again so I could go see The Hunger Games with my nephew.
Honestly wasn't into the Hunger games, but I hadn't been in a theater in more months then I could remember. 
So hooked now. Loved the movie. 
Bought and read the first book and half of the second to Seth on the drive home to Texas. Finished second and third books days after we got home. Should have been unpacking and digging out of messy home, nope I read;)

Didn't see much of the twins in Idaho, only to force diaper changes, gave up on having them finish a meal and they screamed at bedtime because they wanted to keep playing. Goodtimes!

Back in Utah
Esther, the kids and I checked out the new City Creek Mall.
Jax likes the play area
and Sami too!
Seth flew to Utah to hang out for a day and drive us back home.
I think I might have told him I was only coming home if he came and got me. 
Grandpa, Esther, Ryan and our family went to Boondocks.

driving the cars
I mised part of the fun. 
After lunch I got sick and went and slept in the car. 
I hear everyone had a good time.
