At the first of the month The Cute Boy and I headed to Idaho for a family get together and to meet the newest member of the family.
After 13 hours of driving, going through Montana for the first time, and a speeding ticket (DANG you Adams County!), we finally arrived to the land of babies and rolling hills.
One of the Mister's sisters had her first child- Baby T. He's a fat cheeked little dude that looks exactly like his dad. Almost a carbon copy.
I whipped up some awesome onsies (along with some other handmade goods) for him the night before. I stayed up way past my bedtime... Perfectionism and procrastination do not mix well together. I think he looks pretty cute in the one he is sporting though. I'm a rockstar!
While we were there we went to the Rexburg, ID Temple. When I attended BYU-I seven years ago, it wasn't there. Rexburg has changed a lot since then.
The Temple was stunning. I loved the work that we did and the incredible feeling that both I and the Mister had. We did sealings for my great great grandparents. Their spirits were felt and it was a beautiful experience, it still remains with me.
She shared stories galore and even showed us a birthday card that she got from President Obama. She had a hard time pronouncing his name. hehe! I don't know when the next time I will be able to see her, it was a bittersweet visit. I left crying like a baby. I really love this lovely woman!
Other highlights of the trip were shopping at Down East Outfitters (I may have over done it with my purchases), a huge family dinner, a fruit slush from Sonic, a manicure with the youngest sister and new aunt (Carol you are super awesome!), craft night with the girlies, and a baby blessing right before we headed back home.
It was a super fast trip and it was great to see everyone. It was a sentimental trip...meeting the new and bidding farewell to others.
