East Idaho State Fair!

We decided to get out to the fair this year!! We didn't go on any of the rides but we walked through all the animals and saw horses, pigs, and rabbits. But not just any horses, pigs and rabbits but enormous versions of these animals. People wonder why i am terrified of horses. It should be pretty obvious when you see how absolutely gigantic they are. They could trample and kill anyone at will. I wanted to see some of the little boys in my class show their rabbits for 4-H but we missed it. It was a great time at the fair for some cheap entertainment. Clara and I supported the Tiger Troops (boy scouts of america) by purchasing some yummy elephant ears and travis went with a burger and fries and the rest of our elephant ears. It was a great little trip.

Yesterday was also a great day. Clara is now all moved in and adjusting to Rexburg. My mom left early sunday morning with my brother and we were sad to see them go. Thanks for everything!! We love you.

Also clara brought her camera and i found a couple more pictures from our seattle trip to share. Enjoy!

Oh... and what are elephant ears? Do you mean tiger ears?

Hey- I still am planning on making a purse!!! Also, I was thinking about the Praxis today... do you have a study guide or book, is there such thing. I thought that I could use your knowledge of education advising since I have no idea what's going on!

Dear Courtney and Travis

I can see that you take nice photos and add them to your blog for others to see. I started a website called Theme hunt (, this is not a virus. My name is Annika Gofton and I live in Guelph. Every week there will be a different theme word. Then you can make a separate entry to your blog: „Themehunt – dogs“ (this weeks theme is dogs). And then you can copy your entrys URL to my site. That is how other people can see what photos did you find and people can comment.They have to be taken by you. I am trying to create a little friendly community of people who take part of theme hunt every week and give/take feedback-comments. Hope you want to join. Check the site for rules...and there are already 3 added links for this weeks theme – Dog(s).
