Chadderdon Reunion Campin

One of the highlights of my Idaho trip was going to the Chadderdon Reunion. They had it at the Sawtooth National Forest near Shoshone Falls. It was so good catching up with family and being outdoors! Like seriously, SO GOOD! The things I miss the most living in Tokyo is family and nature and there was a lot of both at the reunion. (I need to get the group picture, but lots of fun family).

It was also Luke's first time camping. He had some of the best night sleeps of his life.

Stevensons Meet Luke!

During my trip to Idaho, Riley's parents drove from California to be with family and meet Luke. Natalie and TJ also came up and we all enjoyed a couple days in New Plymouth with Grandma and Grandpa Garner. 

We sat together smiling and laughing, snuggling and watching Luke during every wakeful moment and feeling every emotion of life with him.

Highlights: Natalie got Luke to stop crying with singing to him in Japanese and Luke couldn't stop smiling as David repeated "Costco San!" over and over. 

We also walked the country road together with the dogs trailing and playing games around us & sat outside under the trees next to the garden and enjoyed the simplicity of sundays and the big Idaho sky.
