Burley Bound

Jason was in Burley last week helping my cousin, Lana, get her flooring done on her house. I couldn't pass up the oppurtunity to drive up for a couple of days to see Jason and go to one of my favorite places on earth!

The kids eating airheads after stopping at a gas station to use the bathroom. Their was a sign on the bathroom door that said "paying customers only." So the kids got a treat out of it. They both traveled surprisingly well. Avaree was so excited to stay in a hotel!

Gibbon's new home

At my favorite place, View Cemetary.

It was cold.





I love this picture. I love those trees and on the right of my Mother's headstone is her parents headstone (the best grandparents ever)!

This cemetary is literally in the middle of no where surrounded by beautiful mountains. It's so peaceful.


Swimming at the hotel

Love that Weston is actually looking at the camera and smiling in this pic.

Exhausted on the way home and yes, Weston was sweating in his coat but he wouldn't let me take it off. Some battles are just not worth it.


It is always fun to spend a couple of days in my Mom's hometown and reflect on the many good memories I have of her and my Grandparents.

I cried while looking at all these pictures... my emotions are always getting the best of me.

what a good trip. I know you the cemetery isn't exactly close to you, but it's located perfectly. The pictures are beautiful and I am sure it's good to GET AWAY and be able to spend that time really thinking about your mom and what a wonderful influence she was on your life. I really love Burley, too!
