Going Home

Hunter and I spent last weekend in Utah. We really enjoyed visiting with family and friends. We have the most wonderful people in our lives! I want to give a shout out to my super amazing sisters and their great families. It was also fun to meet up with our friends the Hadleys, the Jacksons, and the ever-awesome Barkers. I love these guys.

Here are a few of the highlights/important lessons from our trip home:
  • The traffic is a thousand times worse when it is a holiday weekend. Fortunately, this was not a holiday weekend.
  • Babies and toddlers change a LOT in five months. It also takes a few hours to remind them who their favorite aunt is. The good news is that they can usually be reconvinced. ;)
  • Kazie, Kasia and Kenzie put on a mean fashion show. 
  • Addi loves to be held. Especially by Aunt Rachie. I am more than happy to comply.
  • Becca makes some mean tacos. Yummy!!
  • Ruth's house is beautiful. I can't wait to see the finished product!
  • Kazie loves my new hair. Sadie prefers it the old way.
  • Madison randomly adds "ing" to some of her words. For example, sometimes she is "colding" and other times she is "hoting". It's a pretty cool trick that I may have to adopt.
  • Sarah made the BEST strawberry dessert. I'm thinking about visiting her again just so I can eat some more.
  • Five days is definitely not enough time to see everyone.
Oh, and of course I have photos! Beautiful photos of some of my favorite people. Enjoy.

Awww, such cute pics! We loved being able to see you although it was too short-lived! I'm thinking our house will be done in 6 weeks, will you be there for the house-warming part-ay?!! I just provided an excuse for you to come!! Oh, and seeing those pics gets me excited for the belated b-day gift-but I need to know sizes, their room is getting decorated (in my head) very, very soon!!
