Artwalk 2014...

Last year we attended the annual Moscow artwalk for the first time. We had such a great time that we went again this year.

It was the coolest night of the week sadly. But we didn't let that stop us.

Paige even stayed awake almost the whole evening. I can't say if she was a great admirer of the local artists, but she did think the camera was fun to watch.

Olivia and I decided the lineup for the chocolate fondue fountain was worth the wait. Actually I decided. Olivia only agreed after eating chocolate covered pretzels.

There was even a communal painting Olivia got to contribute to.

A fun family evening here in Moscow, Idaho.

Kansas Trip...

This last week we got to go visit the Kansas Blythes. I'm pretty sure Olivia thought she had died and gone to heaven. She spent an inordinate amount of time outside with dogs, cats, chickens, roosters, ponies, horses and of course some cattle. If she wasn't with the animals, she was probably using the water can and measuring cups to play with water from the pool or else begging someone to push her on the swing.

Paige also enjoyed the swing thoroughly, even managing to take a nap in it on one occasion.

The first few days we were joined by Poppa and Nancy. This was the girl's first time meeting these great grandparents.

Also, Paige met her great Grandma Julia whom she was named after (middle name.)

Then Paden's Grandma Kat Kat and her husband Steve joined us to meet the girls as well.

Some friends came by one evening and Olivia got to make a new friend.

It was fun times for all!
