It was a busy few days in Pocatello. In between visiting Grandpa Cuoio we were able to play tennis, watch my brother Tanner play football, met my Grandpa Nielson's "girlfriend", went out to eat with Nate's family, went to Brigham City for my Grandpa Nielson's 84th Birthday (which included seeing my brothers and extended family), reminisced about Grandpa Cuoio with Nate's family, and I made carmel apples with my mom.

It was such a great, sad, fun, exhausting weekend. We were able to fit a lot into a small amount of time, which meant not much time for studying. We are now back in Moscow hitting the books...Well Nate is... I am already caught up in my classes.

I am so grateful things worked out the way they did with Nate's classes. I am grateful we were able to go to Pocatello to be with family. Heavenly Father really watches out for us and knows when we need to be with family especially in hard and difficult times.

This is the only picture I got of the trip but I love it! My younger brother is
so cute and I love him!
He is also a great quarterback.


  1. Hey Ashley I just found your blog. I am sorry to hear about your grandfather passing away. Funerals are always sad but the one good thing is at least you get to see lots of family that you usually don't get to.

    I have a blog too but it is a private one so let me know if you want an invitation.
