In May, Eric and I flew to Philadelphia to attend the graduation of our son in law from optometry school. Eric got to meet our newest grandson for the first time too.

We drove to Denver to be with family for the wedding our nephew, Nathan and his bride Abby. I forgot to take pictures at the temple. It was fun to see everyone and to get to visit for a few minutes. Paige's family was there too and they were making their way to Texas for a visit. We caravanned back with them. Bailey's family also came from Philadelphia and stayed for a few weeks while they got things in order to move back to Idaho for a job in Pocatello.
Leslie told me that she wanted to see the butterfly place and the beach so those things were on our agenda. We visited the Museum of Natural Science in Houston. The kids liked the butterfly room and the dinosaurs.

Another fun thing we did was go to a zoo in Alvin, TX. We rode around on a wagon thing and we were able to feed the animals. The animals would walk right up to the wagon and eat out of our buckets of food.
