Tyler's Birthday/Trip to the Zoo

We had such a fun time this weekend celebrating Tyler's 25th birthday! Leah and I had fun spoiling our hard-working daddy. He got a new razor, a couple of WWII documentaries and lots of books!

On Saturday, Tyler's mom came down and we went and ate pho (a Vietnamese noodle soup that Tyler got addicted to on his mission). Tyler is not much of a cake-eater, so instead I went and picked up a Banana Cream Pie from a super yummy restaurant we have here in Pocatello! On Sunday (Ty's actual birthday) we got to teach primary, which is always the best way to spend church and then we came home and Tyler grilled hamburgers for us while we attempted (unsuccessfully) to watch the eclipse.

 On Monday we decided to go to our city's zoo!! It is not super big, but it was super fun! It is filled with rescued animals that are native to Idaho, so we saw lots of bison and coyotes, and rock chucks. Here is Leah in front of a peacock (not native to Idaho, but really annoying). She did not know what to think of all of the animals, but she had fun.

 Here is Tyler in front of a grizzly bear!! He is a regular Timothy Treadwell! This bear just kept going in circles and getting super close to where we were standing. It was kind of scary, but really neat to get that close to a bear. Two seconds before this picture was taken I saw a snake on a rock and ran down the hill to get Leah and I away from it. Tyler does not believe me, but the snake was going to attack Leah and I!

 This is how Leah spent most of the day! Isn't she soooo cute when she sleeps! I love her cheeks!!

 Here is Tyler and I! I just love my honey!

 We had such a fun time at the zoo! Pocatello is such a wonderful city and we are having so many fun adventures together!


  1. glad you had such a good time, can't wait to see you this weekend, happy Birthday Tyler, glad you were spoiled by your family

  2. Looks like it was an awesome birthday!! You all look great! And little Leah is so precious! After you make it back from Texas you'll need to start a Colorado countdown :)

  3. Looks like fun Kacey. I know Laura is really looking forward to seeing you this weekend. I have a cousin that lives in Pocatello that is a non-member. She has three children that live there too--that are young married with children. When you are up to some missionary work, let me know and I will get their addresses to you. Love, Janet Starnes
