So John and I finally took a vacation! After John working 12 hour days for 23 days in a row...we finally jumped on an airplane and flew home to Idaho. We had so much fun. I wish we were able to stay longer than we were. It was Lucas' first airplane ride. We didn't take any pictures on the airplane but this one is really cute from the airport. John bought a smoothie and I think Lucas drank most of it. Since learing how to drink from a straw it seems it is all he wants to do. Silly boy:)

While we were home we took in the festivities of the Cassia County Fair and Rodeo. We, of course, had to hit the parade. Which I must say is the same as it has been for the last 11 years of my life :) I loved every single second of it.

This is the Turner Clan watching the parade from the same spot they always watch the parade.

While we were home Lucas and Ethan played. Ethan has a little bubble and Lucas (like his mama) has no bubble. So it took a little while to find an activity that they both enjoyed at the same time. This is what we call "making a mess at Grandma Turners." They found this drawer the John's mom has filled with tupperware lids. They took turns digging through the drawer to find the lids they thought were cool and then they sat on the floor and played with them.

Here are the two cousins again posing for the camera. Lucas is such a cheeseball...I am sure that Ethan was just like, "i don't know him!"
Also while were in town we had the annual Frost family reunion. That is Grandma Lorna's side of the family. They had a little train going while were there so we put Lucas and Ethan on it. Ethan thought it was great. It took a little while for Lucas to warm up to the idea though. Once it got going he had a blast.
These pictures our of our little fish swimming in the pool that grandma bought for him. Well, she bought it for Caleb too but he didn't like the water as much. Lucas had so much fun. We had to take him out because he was turning purple. The little fountain that squirted up he thought was the funniest thing of all time. He just sat in the pool and would run his hands through the water. We had so much fun watching him. We had such a good time in Idaho. We really miss the slower paced lifestyle. No body to flip you off if you aren't in the middle of the intersection when the light turns green, and not a lot of cars on the road to begin with!! Someday we will return to the land of green..but not today :)

Sounds like you had a great time. Glad you were able to come back to Idaho. One of these days we will make a trip to St. George and see Jesse's Grandparents and continue on to Vegas and visit you. Lucas is such a cutie! It's crazy how fast they grow up. Our little Leah is almost 17 months now, only another month and nursery for us! WHOOOH! We are so excited. Keep in touch, hope all is well with you and John!
