Kids with some of the main Kid History guys!

My little buddy Skyler absolutely loves the web sensation "Kid History." They just released episode 9, if you have no idea what I am talking google it, quite fun and goofy! Anyways, episode 9 was set to premier the first week in June, the cast and their families travel around to different locations for the premiers, episode 9 was taking place 3 hours away in Rexburg, Idaho. The kids had their last day of school on Friday, June 1st. Jeremy and I thought it would be fun to surprise them and take them to the premier. They were completely shocked when they learned we were going to Idaho to the event and would spend the night in a hotel(I can count on 1 hand how many times they have spent the night in a hotel, they were stoked. The premier was lots of fun, we could have waited in the line for several hours after the show to meet them, but we were all tired, so we headed off to the hotel, making a stop for frozen custard on the way. The kids were in Heaven, their first taste of frozen custard, made them fans for life! We headed to the Super 8, the cheapest closest hotel we could find. The boys shared a bed and us girls shared a bed. Kenzie tossed and turned all night, I couldn't help but chuckle at how much she is like her dad when she sleeps! We woke up bright and early the next morning ate a continental breakfast and then we all went swimming in the hotel pool. After swimming we packed up and on our way to check out, we heard a lot of people in the lobby. Skyler ran up to me and was trying to whisper something in my ear, I missed it at first as I finished the check-out process, I finally got what he was telling me, the entire Kid History cast was eating breakfast in the lobby. I encouraged Skyler to say hi and then he and Kenz got pictures with them, they were super friendly and chatty. I didn't want to interrupt their breakfast anymore, but they kept talking, it was great. Skyler was soooo happy that we were frugal and stayed in the cheapest hotel we could find, or he definitely would have missed that opportunity. Here are some picts from our fun little road trip! We had to rush home afterwards because Kenzie had her first dance recital (great by the way)! I love times when we are all together and the kids can't just run off to play with friends, they have just grown up way too fast!
