Our new puppy Peaches

We had a great weekend with Paca and Grandma in Utah. Sarah and Bill got to go to the Saturday afternoon session of conference, and Bill got to go to Priesthood session. I got to spend some time with Micka, and it was so nice. Then on the way home we Stopped and got Our Boxer Puppy from Risa. She was born July 18th, and she is such a sweet girl. The kids named her Peaches, and love her to death. They take her for walks about every 2 hours, and even slept with her in the garage last night.

Our Field trip to the Ice Caves

The kids had so much fun on their field trip to the Shoshone Ice Caves. They learned all about the volcanic activity that created to cave, and about the people that lived in the area when the volcano was active. We also learned about how the air needs to flow just right to keep the ice in the cave year round. We learned that that in the late 1800s and early 1900s the people in Shoshone and Ketchum would come and take the ice from the cave to use in restraints and bars. What a fun day, and we can't wait for the next field trip
