It was a fun day of feeding dolphins, holding starfish, and getting wet. A few minutes after that last picture was taken, Benjamin decided it wasn't fun to be splashed, so he moved up to the dry seats. It was fun to spend a little time with my parents, and easy to say goodbye since we saw them a week later when we went to:
Idaho! They look thrilled, don't they? This was at the potato museum (of course!) in Blackfoot. I don't think the kids were as bored as they look. It was a really nice week. We were excited to see some snow, even though all the locals are sick of winter. We got to see a lot of family (three of my siblings and their families, Ryan's sister and her family, my parents and grandparents), and Ryan took the kids and my dad fishing one day. Mostly we just relaxed, went to see a movie, went shopping, etc. Ryan and I even went to a spa one day and had a couples massage. I didn't want to come home at the end of the week.
I don't know if you can see it very well, but I love Benjamin's face in this picture as he shovels in some angel food cake.
The museum had a lot of pictures of Marilyn Monroe clothed in only a potato sack, and the Guiness Book of World Record's Biggest Potato "Crisp" (not chip). There is also a potato song, but I can't remember any of the lyrics.
