On the Road Update (via Drama Queen)

Hey y'all!

Momma just wanted me to let y'all know that they had tons of fun hanging out in Idaho.  They got to see the eclipse from the zone of totality and I bet they have some cool pics.  They ended up waiting a few hours, but even after stopping to eat dinner and catch a movie, they are still caught in a bunch of traffic.  Latest update is they are just outside of Pocatello and the freeway is totally stop-and-go.  Dad's guessing they won't roll into town until four in the morning.  I hope its a bit sooner than that, but really, who knows? Once in a lifetime events end up with once in a lifetime traffic!

Momma will post tomorrow with more details of their awesome trip.  Night, bloggers!

Running to Idaho

Yesterday we had a fantastic day of football! Scout, Sport, and Curly all won their games as did Burrito and Taco. Bingham really does have an amazing program.

When we finally returned home from the football field, we finished packing up and by about 4:00, we hit the road. Yes, we are joining what we heard were thousands of other eclipse watchers in the Zone of Totality.

My sweetie has family near Rexburg and his aunt and uncle kindly shared their little rental house with us for the weekend. It has no furniture, so we filled it with air matresses and sleeping bags, but we are so grateful for a place to stay!

This morning my sweetie took the little kids including Burrito to explore this little town. They found a fun park and he managed to make them all sick at the park. We are getting ready for church now, but I will make sure to share all about our adventure with you.

By the way, so far we have not seen any crowds or craziness, just busy gas stations. We were even able to buy ice.

Meet Little Warrior

My very first order of business this morning was to go and see that new little grandson of mine. It was about 10:30 before my sweetie and I finally got on the road to the hospital. I have to confess that our poor Beauty was still so very tired that I just didn't have the heart to post any pics of her, but I can attest to the fact that she is more beautiful than ever.

When we first arrived, The Beast was holding his tiny son and feeding him from a bottle. It was my first picture and my best. Little Warrior is perfect (both parents have approved the name, so it will stick). I'm just going to leave you with pictures; some that I took and some that The Beast sent me later after we were already home.
My turn, my turn!!

Now that's a good-looking grandpa!

Getting ready for his first bath.
He's an expert already.
All finished. Daddy did a great job!
My mother/grandmother heart is bursting with gratitude and love. So proud... so happy...

Congratulations to Beauty and The Beast!

Beauty and The Beast were blessed with a gift from Heaven today. Our Little Warrior was born on August 17, 2017 at 2:35 p.m. He is 19 inches long and just shy of 7 pounds. Everybody is tired, but things are going great!

Those are mostly The Beast's words and I took the liberty of using a blog name without complete permission, so forgive me if we change it in the next few days.

Beauty was treated to a surprise C-section so she will be in the hospital a little longer than they had planned. Hopefully she will get a chance to rest (and take a few more pics!).

So excited to go see them tomorrow!
