Since I was unemployed and Ron was still going to be gone on away rotations for another couple months that we would make a trip to visit Mema (Ron's mom). We were very excited to be going to Boise and looked forward to being spoiled. Unfortunately, the first night there Aidan woke up with a fever. My mommy's intuition kicked in (I was convinced he had another infection as he had been coughing and congested for over a month) so we took him to the doctor's office my mother-in-law works at. Good thing too, poor little guy had a double ear infection. :-( So, the first few days of our visited consisted of getting better. Thank goodness for cuddly grandmas.

We were in Boise, with Mema, for Halloween this year. AND, Ron ended up coming home early (thanks government shutdown). So, we had a big, family evening of trick-or-treating!! Ron's Aunt Sandy joined us and we made the round of the neighborhood. My MIL and I found Aidan a robot costume at Saver's and he was adorable!!! So excited that he was old enough to understand and enjoy!

Continuing on with the previous post, I made sure we had a lot of fun activities before heading to Idaho. After going to the Botanical Gardens on Saturday, we met up with another group of friends and headed north, to the North Pole that is! Near Colorado Springs, there is an amusement park called The North Pole, . I had never heard of it, but was excited to check it out. It was October, only a couple mores months until Christmas, wouldn't hurt to get into the spirit a little early! Also it was military month, so Aidan & I got in free! Woot!! Aidan was still a bit small for many of the rides, but enjoyed the ones he could go on. We even went and saw Santa, of course this year he was not so much into him. Kinda traumatized the kid, I think (plus it was way past naptime)!!!

After we came back from our trip to Montana, we had a week before heading to Boise, ID to visit my mother-in-law. We tried very hard to stay busy with activities ALL week! That Saturday we went up to the Chatfield Botanical Gardens, with a big group of friends, to enjoy the activities they put on at Halloween. This year they had a carnival too. Aidan LOVED riding on the rides. The rides that were a bit too big for him, he went on with our friend's daughter, Tessa. All in all, a super fun day!

Our plane trip to Bozeman, MT was TERRIBLE! It started out fine and Aidan was even being a good boy but when we arrived at the Bozeman airport, we ended up circling for about an hour as a private plane had crash landed on the ONE landing strip. Ugh. Once we finished circling the captain (who was very funny and stayed in great spirits) told us we would have to fly to Billings, gas up and then fly back to Bozeman. This ended up being about 30 min in the hour and about an hour (give or take) waiting on the group and then another 30 minutes back to Bozeman. My poor parents sat and patiently waited for hours at the airport for us.

Daddy was in Portsmouth, VA for Labor Day weekend so it was just Aidan and I. The SAA organization at our school did a group event at the Cherry Creek Reservoir! That was a ton of fun Aidan had a blast playing in the sand with his new (dollar store) sand toys and "swimming" in the water. It was a beautiful day and I enjoyed the company of my girlfriend.

We had a blast this summer! Since daddy was only around for one month this summer, we made sure to do lots & lots of activities to stay busy! We did have some fun days with daddy before he left. While he was around in July, studying for boards, we went swimming and to the park....often! with a girlfriend of mine. This is a great place for kids & adults alike, and it's just down the road from our apartment. You get to learn about wild animals, and many of them are animated, which makes it even more adventurous!
