Amy and I were the lucky ones that got to drive there with her 3 little girls.
Hard...yes! Long...yes! Exhausting...yes!
Fun...yes! Lots of bonding time...yes! Worth it...YES!!!
I have to admit Amy drove more than I did, still eating is the only thing that kept us awake!
Girls were troopers but after a whole day of driving we decided to get a Motel room and rest for the night!
You can see how excited the girls were to get to do a Sleep Over in a Motel! Actually so were we!
Arriving in Salt Lake and being with family and friends, was so fun! I have missed my great nieces and nephews! I love how the cousins all connected!
Two of them, we met for the first time. Oh how I instantly loved them!
Look at those faces...aren't they the sweetest?
For a special trip to the Dinosaur Museum, where the kids got to actually dig for bones,
while their parents got to reconnect!
Hard to imagine my own kids, neices and nephews grew up but now to see the next generation...was a Priceless gift!
Stuffed animals have always been near and dear to our hearts, only fitting that Amy's girls got to go home with one each!
Then because we got to Utah a few days early, we were able to have breakfast with some old friends, ones that we hadn't seen in over 35 years...what a treat!
I love, love, loved seeing all the kids and grandkids together.
Then after Lee and Caitlin got married, right before they came out of the Temple, Jeff and I came out and acted like we were the newly weds! It was too funny, people starting clicking their cameras then they stopped and I heard someone say... " who are they?" It was too funny,
What we were really excited about was...we just had our last child get married! Can't you just see the excitement on our faces?
When I look at these young men, I am grateful first of all ...for Bradley and the great older brother he has always been for Lee. Then as I look at the rest, and I am so thankful that Lee has such incredible friends in his life. Good friends can make all the difference!
Here is the Bride ( our new daughter in law ) and her sweet sisters and friends!
We are glad to see our family getting bigger.
And congrats to Lee and Caitlin, your journey has just begun! We love you!
Good Night dear friends!
