Spring Break????????






So, unlike everyone else who ran to warmer climates for Spring Break, we decided to enjoy some of the great snow they have had this year up in Island Park. We started off in Rexburg where Blake helped dad take an engine out of an old Camero, to put in his other project car (sorry dad, the name of it escapes me). Mom and I went and got our hair done. Then, mom and dad watched the kids while Blake and I went to the Rexburg Temple. It was beautiful, and is very similar to the one they are building in Twin Falls, so it was kind of a "sneak peak". Then we went to the cabin and enjoyed great snow, and beautiful weather. We snowmobiled into West Yellowstone, had an easter egg hunt in the snow, and went sledding. While we were in Rexburg, Blake just HAPPENED to stop by the 4x4 dealer in town and found a great deal on a 4x4 for me (of course). It's smaller than the other one we have, which is fine by me, and we had fun testing it out on the snow. Island Park has had great snow, as you can see, this year. And just down the road alittle ways from my parent's cabin was this collapsed cabin someone didn't even get to finish before the snow load sent it sideways down the hill. You can kind of see the snowmobile trailer that is holding up the one side of the roof. What the picture doesn't show very well are the 4 snowmobiles, and suburban trapped in side. So Sad! (Emily is Chad crying yet?)

Looks like they had plenty of snow this year. I am jealous about the 4-wheeler, I wish I had one.

I cant believe how much snow is up there! The weather in the Treasure Valley was horrible for spring break, it has been cold, windy and rainy every day.

That is one pretty quad! Just be grateful you had a spring break. I snuck the kids out of school and went up to Washington for a week. The weather was pretty terrible there too. I guess that is one good thing about California.
