First grade and Great Grandma pics

Kara started first grade today! She is really excited. School actually started last tuesday, but we were out of town, so her first day is today. I didn't notice my camera lens was all blurry until I uploaded the picture. I just had to dig it out of a suitcase and snap a picture real quick before we went to the bus stop. We got home from the airport well after 1AM, so the girls weren't super happy to wake up this morning. But once I reminded her about starting school, Kara was up and getting ready. We went to back to school night before we left on our trip, so she got to meet her teacher and a few of her little classmates.  I'll try to get a better picture when she comes home from school this afternoon.

I have over 300 pictures from our Idaho/Utah trip, so I'm gonna break them up into different posts. We flew into SLC last Saturday, and drove up to Smithfield to visit Ben's grandma Howard. The girls had so much fun, and it was great to see her again.
We played some games, and had dinner with Grandma Howard, and Ben's Aunt Pam and Uncle Danny, and their kids.

Kara really liked the pets, and of course they all had fun hanging out with Ben's cousins. We had a fun time, and lots of laughs :)
And hopefully it wont be another 2 years before we get out there to visit her again!!
