Count Down to Idaho

Just a few more days and we're off to Idaho. We're going up on Friday and Shelby is super excited ("I've been missin' Papa," is how she put it.) As excited as she is to see Papa and Mama Shelley, she more excited to see her cousins. My sister Amy and her three kids, along with my brother Brad and his two girls will be there this week as well. Six little cousins together at Papa's ranch -- too much fun! My brother Bryan is already there and all the cousins adore their Uncle Bryan. He let's them climb all over them and is always game for any adventure.
We'll also get a chance to see more extended family as well .. my cousins Carrie and Wendy live close to my Dad, as do my Uncle Billy and Aunt Lori, Uncle Mike, and Great-Grandma Pearl. Shelby loves to visit her Great-Grandma Pearl (She's a wonderful girl," Shelby said) and smother her with kisses.
From what I hear, a BBQ is planned; a trip down the river is in the works; a dip in the pool will surely happen; and hopefully some fishing. Just a few more days!
