Our family had a great Memorial Day. In the morning we headed up to Bloomington, Idaho with Ross' sister, Lark. There we met up with Ross's parents, his grandmother, and the Nicholls family. Nigel was really happy to be around so much family.
Ross mowed Grandma Lark's lawn. Nigel was whining and fussing, watching his dad out the window. He was a whole lot happier riding the lawn mower with Dad. He just loves to be where his dad is.
|Mowing the lawn isn't hard when you ride on the mower.|
|Nigel didn't want to leave the mower seat!|
We all went to the Bloomington Cemetery to visit graves of deceased relatives. Nigel thought all the flowers were really cool.

|Having fun with Grandma Bateman!|

|Smile, Nigel..... Or not.....|
While Nigel took his afternoon nap, Ross and I went to see the Minnetonka Cave. It was a lot of fun.
|These are the "Three Sisters"|
|These are the "Seven Dwarves"|
|These cool little stalactites are called soda straws.|
|There was tons of water dripping here. One of the tour members said, "It's like all the fat from lip-suction just got dumped here!"|
|This is what happens when you touch cave creations. They turn all funky.|
After we got back everyone chatted for a while before heading home.
|Nigel enjoyed looking out on the yard from the porch.|
Nigel was so exhausted on the way home. What precious little thing.
