What faces have you seen lately???

Hello all! We are on vacation!!! Yes, that is right... the first vacation we have taken since my diagnosis last year. We are on a fall break road trip and we are having the time of our lives!... Take a minute to look at a few of the faces we have seen along the way... (we don't have everyone pictured that we have seen because I am very random with my picture taking)
EmmaLee Hulse and Cassidy met up in Bagdad for a day
Daniel Hulse and Will had tons of fun being.....boys!
Lund and Izzy had a fun playdate before the football game.
Morgan found adorable baby Eric to hold...
Will shared his Hot Wheels track with baby Eric Hulse. (miracles never cease!)
And then, Sunday after attending church in Bagdad, we hit the road for Pocatello, Idaho...
Yup, he is always this much fun in the car! He did say a wonderful thing to me. I sat back with him when he was having trouble on the drive and he kept saying, "I love you mommy, I love you." Finally, I asked him what inspired this great show of affection and he immediately responded, "Jesus told me to tell you that." ......simply wonderful!!
And sometimes, I had the opportunity to sit in the passanger seat and look at this sexy man!!! (p.s. I am a BIG fan of the new scruffy face!)
We arrived in Pocatello at 2am and when we woke up in the morning, we were greeted by many wonderful cousins and neices and nephews. Cassidy was in HEAVEN holding all the babies! This little gem happens to be Breana Johnson's new little girl, Carmen.
A Carmen pose!
And these two divas were rocking the world in their tutu's! (Lucy Hynes and Sarah)
And this little vampire was hiding in Grandpa's precious flowers!! (Christian Hegstrom)
The other wonderful aspect of Pocatello is the "fall season" that is everywhere!!! Love it!
Oh look, Cassidy has Carmen again!
And Lund just wanted to finger knit the whole time. He made a rope that went around the downstairs two times. I think that should count for his Webelos scout stuff somehow!!
And this little man is as cute as a bug!! I stole him plenty of times to snuggle with him. (Kason Crozier)
And here is proud momma Breana with her little Carmen, just two-weeks-old!
Will spent the whole day outside playing with his cousins! He was in boy heaven!
Here is Elliot Hynes kicking the ball around with the other boys!
I just love how green the grass is here. There is moisture everywhere!
My little diva made lots of appearances outside...
And here are some friendly faces.... This is (from left to right) Cheyenne (Bruce's girlfriend), Bruce Robinson, Morgan Robinson, Breana Johnson, and Christian Hegstrom..
One big happy family!! I caught all the siblings in the Johnson/Robinson/Hegstrom clan and made them pose for a picture. These are all of Charice's kids (Morgan's just older sister)
......And look, Morgan found another baby to snuggle with! He sure does love being "the baby whisperer!" (baby: Kason Crozier)

So, as you can see, we are having a little slice of heaven as we sit and visit with family from Boise, Idaho, Logan, Utah, and Pocatello, Idaho. We wish we could have everyone from his family here, but we are loving our time here nontheless!
I would like to give a little "shout out" to Lilly Wilson in Boise. She is my brave 7-year-old neice recovering from kidney stone surgery. We love you Lilly and we know you will get through this..."Johnson women are TOUGH!"
