A few weeks ago I was feeling a little homesick for my mom and dad because I hadn't seen them since Thanksgiving. So, I convinced my sister Danna to go to Powell with me to see our parents, our little sister, Cicily and our brother Clint. Then we found out that our brother Kimball and his wife Elaine were going to be visiting too for Spring Break. So, it ended up being a little half-family reunion. Anyway, our journey there was a little eventful. I was worried that the four kids would be terrible, but luckily they weren't too bad. Danna's three were pretty much angels and my Romie was the only one causing problems. Unfortunately you can't plan on driving through MT at the end of March without hitting a snow storm. We were just outside of Bozeman, MT (which is about 3 hours from Powell) and we hit this huge snow storm. It was dark and we could not see at all. It was so scary. We had to take the first exit we could in Livingston and we got a hotel. Anyway, once we got to Powell, the kids were so excited to see their granparents and we had a really great time. Of course whenever you get kids together for a few days they seem to all get sick. Unfortunately they all got the throw-ups (except for my nephew Tate). Anyway, we ended up extending our stay for one day so that all the kids could recover from the illness. I hope we didn't destroy all the bedding in my mom's house! Other than that we had a great time and as always I ate a ton of good food thanks to my mom. This is Roman with his cousin, Ella. Grandma bought a lot of fruit snacks for them and they were happy to eat them all.
One of my grandpa's neighbors had these little ponies. I can't remember the name of the breed, but anyway, this is a full-grown ponyl They were so cute. The kids really liked them.
