Vacation Time!

We drove to Utah on the 22nd of May. It was a very long drive with two small children. We were able to make the drive straight through. We stopped twice for gas and a quick stretch. We made it in about 13 hours, but not without tears and screaming. On the day we got there, my family had family pictures, David was so tired that all of the pictures of him, he either has a blank look or is crying.
On Sunday was my brother Cody's mission farewell. He did an excellent job! Then we headed up to Idaho to visit with Jared's family. We had a little birthday party for Jared while we were there, and Jared and I went country dancing at BYU-Idaho. We had a BLAST! We haven't been country dancing since I was pregnant with Morgan.

Jared drove back home and me and the kids stayed another week at my parents. We went to the zoo, went swimming, shopping, Bowling, out to dinner, out to the movies, and did alot of visiting.

Morgan had so much fun playing with her cousins, and spending time with aunts, uncles, grandmas and grandpas!
On Wednesday, all the family went out to breakfast, then I went to the airport with the kids and my parents continued on the the MTC to drop off Cody, He is going to be an awesome missionary. GOOD LUCK CODY!! I had an adventurous time at the airport trying to carrying two kids, a car seat, a diaper bag, my purse, and three suitcases. Not to mention my ride (Jared) was twenty minutes late. I must have looked pretty stupid as I dragged David in the car seat while trying to get Morgan to hold onto the strap, my arm turning blue from all the bags cutting of my blood circulation, as I pulled my suitcases out to the road. We finally made it home, and nothing was damaged except my pride!
