It's all about....Kyle!

A couple of weeks ago, Kyle competed in a state geography bee. Rob and I took him to Boise for the competition. It was so much fun to spend time one-on-one with him. We just don't get the opportunity often enough to have that quality time with each of our kids so this was a trip all about Kyle. He finished in the top 30 for the competition. Most of the competitors were middle school aged kids. We are so excited and proud of him! He is such a great kid!!

Kyle got to pick the activities for the trip. Of course, first and foremost, he had to take a walk on the smurf turf. He even caught a pass. This had to have been the highlight of the trip. I am pretty sure that he is going to be convincing Rob that they need to go see a Boise State football game next fall.

Outside of the stadium.

This is the certificate that he was presented with after finishing the geography bee. He was pretty excited about it!
Some of the highlights for the trip include: dinner at Johnny Carino's with turtle cheesecake of course, geography bee, smurf turf, lunch at PF Chang's, 4 new shirts including a BSU (bright orange - what is it with this family and orange), 2 new hats (BSU and Seahawks), Cabela's, and a stop off at the Malad Gorge. We had a great weekend! Kyle is such a good kid! We love you, Kyle! Thanks for the awesome weekend!

If you notice, the sun was shining in all of the pictures. That was the last time we saw the sunshine!


  1. Awesome job Kyle! What a fun weekend... one-on-one time is hard to come by around our house too. It needs to happen more often. You guys are such awesome parents!

  2. You're right...he is a great kid! All of your kids are great. Must be great parenting, right?


  3. Where did that kid get his smarty pants gene?

  4. Great job!! Glad you were able to have a fun time!! Maybe we could meet in Boise for the game.....

  5. So proud of you Kyle. We were glad that you went so that we could have Kali and Brooke again. Now that Grandma is home I am sad that we won't get the job anymore.
