Brad's parents watched the kids for the weekend so we could go tour around some of the near by villages. We took off Friday morning and drove to Bernkastel-Kues. It is a beautiful German village known for its winegrowing. The whole mountain side was full of vines. We stayed a in a cute Bed and Breakfast then took off to Cochem (another small village) the next morning. After walking around Cochem we drove to the Eltz Castle. This is a beautiful castle hidden in the the mountains. It has been owned by the same family since the 12th century. After the castle tour we drove to Bacharach, a small village along the Rhein River. We stayed overnight, then returned home on Sunday. It was a great short getaway, thanks to Brad's parent for taking on the kids!!!

The B&B we stayed at in Bernkastel-Kues. Brad had to park in that small garage, that was fun to watch.

This is one of the workers picking the grapes for wine. They put the grapes in the bucket on his back then he bends forward to empty out the grapes into the truck.

Yikes, can Lexi be old enough for a school dance. She had a her first middle school dance the other week. It was a Halloween dance so below are the girls in their costumes (with a couple extras who wanted their pictures taken too).


Over fall break we took the kids to Europa Park, an amusement park a few hours away. The kids had a great time, so did Brad and I. They had the park decorated for Halloween, which gave us a little feel of home.

I guess when you are tired you will fall asleep in any position! Needless to say she doesn't nap in the bouncer seat anymore.

Kaycee's birthday!


We wish more of our family and friends could of attended Kaycee's baptism but we were grateful for the great friends who could make it and that Grandma and Grandpa Barlow could be here for it. Grandpa Barlow and Brad spoke on baptism and the Holy Ghost. Brad performed the baptism and confirmation. We are so proud of Kaycee!

Summer is always something we all look forward to family, friends and play play play!!! Our kids have been many places but when you ask them their favorite place to go forget Europe or Caribbean beaches it is always Utah and Idaho. No wonder they want to move back they think it will be a constant vacation and party all the time! : Cousins, cousins, cousins, football, tumbling, dance, modeling for aunt Kris, waterparks, Midway with the Bunkers, tennis, parades, fireworks, Sun Valley, swimming, eating, shopping, Marshall living at the Hansens and cousins.
