Weekend Away

Rexburg is getting so cold! So last weekend we decided to get away to somewhere warm, sunny, and...ok it was just Utah but it's still warmer than Idaho! Eric's mom is in town for a few weeks so we went down to visit. She hadn't seen Ethan since Christmas, and it was way fun for Ethan to see his Grandma again.

Friday night we went to Thanksgiving Point to a mini kid carnival called the Barnyard Boo. Ethan loved looking at the animals and practically cried when we left the horses. He got to go on a pony ride with Eric walking beside him, and he thought that was the best! So much for holding on with two hands, he only wanted one on the horse and the other in the air! It was cute.

The kids got to decorate cookies, but I think Ethan ate more frosting off the Popsicle stick than ended up on his cookie.
Natalie decorating her cookie- the right way :)

All the Rindlisbacher grandkids with Grandma- Ethan, Natalie, and Brooke
All of us on a hayride, excuse the weird look on my face :)

It was also Natalie's 4th birthday while we were there, and Saturday morning we all went to Chuck E Cheese. For those of you who've only been to the one in Alaska, the ones in Utah are way nicer and cleaner :) It was a lot of fun and even though Ethan could play the games very well, they had a bunch of little kiddie rides for him to go on. When they were going he would smile and say "Weee!" and turn the steering wheel like he was driving. I was impressed with how much he got into it!
One happy boy!
So excited!
(Ok so I think he just wanted the camera but he looks excited!)
Taking Brooke for a ride
Grandma and the birthday girl! Happy Birthday, Natalie!
Dad and Ethan waiting for the pizza to come. While we were waiting this little boy came up to Eric and said, "That little boy is cute, I want him to have this toy." and gave him a little transformer toy in his hand! How sweet!
The older boys had some fun as well :)

Ethan is growing up so fast! He definately looks like nursery material! It looks like you guys are having fun and keeping busy!
