I have to thank Paige for allowing me to realize I needed this little time away. I was so nervous about it and was really not convinced I was really even going until the plane was actually up in the air. I am really happy I went. It was so fun to see my sister in-laws. Out of 10 of us there were 7 of us there. That is pretty good I think. We had such a great time. We were able to spend a lot of time together and really have fun with each other. We had been wanting to get as many as the SIL together as we could and it has never really worked out until this point. And it was a great excuse to go to Utah for the baby shower. I am hoping next time it could maybe be a little warmer of a destination. We will have to work it out so no one is pregnant at the time, but in this family that doesn't ever really happen.
The whole gang
Saturday night Paige and I were "helping" Gloria go into labor. We were really hoping she would have Jordan before we left. It didn't work out that way, but we did did have fun at her shower and then only missed his birth by a few hours. Oh well, I am still enjoying all the pictures of this darling boy. He is really SO cute.
Sunday on my way to the airport I stopped by Temple Square and I seriously find that place more breathtaking each time I go. It is so beautiful and so peaceful there. I love it.
I got to the airport rather early, you would have thought I was anxious to see my kids and hubby and I was. Once I got in the air I was sad to leave such a beautiful place, but so happy to see my family again. As much as I love it there, I have to say, nothing is more perfect, no place, city, state or country, than where your family is and that makes where we live more lovely than any.
Also I have to say a quick shout out to Andy and my mom for holding down the fort and taking such good care for the kiddos and allowing me to have such a great time. And to Michelle, Cherise and Cami we hope to have you along the next time we do this! Oh Sariah, thanks for letting us "craft" with you!
