I'm unlocking my personal vault of posts that I never completely finished and therefore never posted. It's fun to look back and it's amazing how much the kids have grown. Here's a look back to May 2009.
Visiting my family in Pocatello where I grew up.
Josh had recently been diagnosed with severe asthma and allergies (seasonal and animal). The drive from Iowa was really scary because he was having asthma attacks. Then John left all of Josh's medications at our first stop of the trip at a rest stop in Iowa. This was the beginning to our 20 hour drive that we drove straight through the night and didn't stop. When we got to Idaho. Josh had a severe allergic reaction and his eyes swelled shut and he couldn't breathe. Luckily we were able to refill his medications in Idaho. It was scary and his poor eyes were swollen almost the entire trip. He really did have so much fun after he was able to breathe better. He was such a good sport.

My mom wanted to celebrate Josh's birthday at her home in Idaho. Josh got to celebrate his birthday 3 times for his 3rd birthday. That could only happen for the first child who is actually the first grandchild on both sides of the family.
I was able to get together with my really good friend Lacey. We have been friends since grade school.
We went to visit my grandma's gravesite and her old farm in Bancroft, Idaho

Nate was an angel and so easy going on the trip.
