New Plymouth

8.20.18 One weekend the Stevensons drove to New Plymouth and we were all able to spend some time with Riley’s side! It was great to see everyone, especially Nicole for the first time after coming home from her mission and meeting baby Olivia! Riley was there too that weekend so it was good to be all together but it just went way too fast!!  It was the same weekend as Caden’s wedding, a Moncur reunion, and a super nasty stomach bug that got us— but we were still able to make a couple trips out to the farm and spend some time at Grandma and Grandpa Gardner's house and go to church and have the very best Sunday lunch with all the fresh local and homegrown goods!

Bogus Basin Summer Time

About 16 miles from downtown Boise, is our favorite little ski mountain. They have added a lot of summer activities too. . .  so one day during my trip we went to check them out. It was a great day of riding the ski lifts, hiking around and riding the mountain coaster! One of my favorite days spent in Idaho this summer.

 Also, Maisyn tripped during the trip and got covered in dirt! The fall didn't hurt, but when she came up she was covered in dust we all thought it was so funny and she was so brave. 
My cute parents.

Lots of pictures with Whitney, we are going to miss her too much on mission.

Jump Creek!

One thing I dislike about living in Tokyo is that nature is so much harder to access— so when we are in America it’s always top on my bucketlist to just be outside and go on some hikes. Idaho is such a pretty state. Caden told me about this waterfall an hour or so drive from my parent's house that I super wanted to go to. . . so when I was in town everyone was super nice and willing to go along and we made a little evening out of it!  It was a super short hike to the falls, which was perfect for the little ones and Caden brought his drone and took some sweet pics.
