We spent a day and night at our good friends Brent & Kathy's house. The kids played and had a blast. Brent actually took my kids on his wards Father Son Camping Trip. So Kathy and I had a girls night with Kaiya. We were supposed to watch a movie and stuff but we have this problem called gabbing...instead we stayed up talking and laughing until I think about 2:00 am. It was so fun to see them. Sorry no pics from that outing.
When we came back we stayed at moms for a few more days. Thank heavens for my brother Brian who rescued my kids from boredom. They got flat tires in wendell from some thorn bushes. Brian came one evening and fixed their bike tires for them with only one little mishap. Do not exceed 40 PSI??? How the heck does someone do that on a bike tire? Ask Brian, he did it and needed a clean pair of underwear after the explosion! hahah. Thanks Bri
We then went back up to our old stomping grounds...good ole Logan Utah. We love it there and miss it in so many ways. We stayed at my dads and helped him a bunch at the fair with his booth for his insurance business. Jenni decided to come down to dad's and we spent a very long....fun day at the outdoor city pool. It was a blast and the kids couldn't get enough of the slides all by themselves. At the pool I ran into one of Rich's old Deacons from our ward there. He's returned from a mission and asked about Rich immediately. He couldn't stop telling me how much of an example Rich was for him and how much he helped him and wanted to see him. So we arranged a time and he met us for lunch so they could chat. They had a good time.
The day before we went home Rich, I and the boys went to visit our old neighbors Pat & Jennifer who we love. They've moved and it was so nice to be able to visit them. While at the fair the last day we ran into a couple of couples that were good friends of our in our old ward. Rich also ran into 2 of his really good old roommates from before we were married. We also maintained our friendships with them after we and they got married. My brother begged Rich to stay another day so he could see him because we had already left the SLC area when Rich had gotten to Utah. My mom is the only one that saw him down there. So Rich decided to stay an extra day. We drove home on Monday instead of Sunday and stopped at Jenni's on the way home to break the trip in half.
We had an awesome trip -thank you to Jenni and Mom for making it possible for us to have an unbelievable time with all our family in friends in Utah that we miss so much. I am so extremely grateful for my parents and siblings who show us absolute unconditional love at all times and who love my husband just as much as they love me. I wouldn't have it any other way. My family couldn't ask for a better family to belong to. We love you guys and miss you tons.
