Another week of exploration

We are still discovering more and more treasures of Twin--this week a lot of the exploration was done via bike. Erich has a bad habit of going out and buying his gifts before I have a chance of purchasing/giving them to him. Lately he has been wanting a bike trailer for Jake so I went ahead and bought it and gave it to him as an early Fathers Day gift. Thus, this week we've been doing a bit of bike riding. We really wanted to go to Sun Valley and ride but we got rained out. So instead we rode the country roads around here. It is pretty fun just cruising around the farm fields. We also went and biked out to one of the lakes here. I can't help but check out all the good waterskiing spots!

(the fields around here are quite beautiful)

(as you can see Jake is quite into standing up these days)

When you are in Twin you can see some mountains to the south. From a distance they look more like sage covered hills but once you get up in them they are actually quite tall and beautiful. We were quite excited to discover a little ski resort and hiking trails all less than 30 miles from home!

(who knew Twin Falls had trees and mountains?)

(it started raining pretty good on us so we hunkered down under some trees until it passed)

Jake has FINALLY decided he is interested in food, which freed me up to attend a temple session. The temple is gorgeous, especially the inside.

(It awesome having a temple right here)

(Quite the little smiler!)

(Gotta love being a mom)

They are really moving on our house. Last Sunday when we went out there it was bare dirt, now we have part of a foundation. Things are really developing fast. Last week there was only 1 house being built on our block, now there are 5 going up, including our neighbors. I guess things still move in this economy so long as the price is right!

Yeah I love all the pictures, looks pretty there. Jakes little church outfit is adorable. Glad the house is moving along so quickly. It'll be so fun to be in a brand new house. I am so jealous. Oh bike trailers are the best, and that is a great fathers day gift. i was thinking of getting Nolan some chocolate?

Are you guys for hire? I think you need to come to Boise and figure out some of our hidden adventure spots as well. Looks beautiful. Maybe we need to do our boating trip there. When will your house be done?
