The rest of our Utah Trip -- Sunday through Wednesday

On Sunday, we went to church and relaxed. Everyone came over for the evening. Trent flew home Monday morning so that he could get going back at work.

Then we met Sarah Brown (some old time friends) and her kids at the Taylorsville rec pool. We had fun catching up! Then we met Heidi and her boys and saw Turbo. That night Adam spent the night at Jennie and Russ's and Isabel spent the night with the girls. On Tuesday, I took pictures of Becky's little girl, Emily. Owen was my assistant! Isn't he cute!

Then we went to Jennie's house and switched back kids, had some chick-fil-a and then all met at Uncle Steve's house to swim. Then it was time to pack up. We flew home Wednesday. The kids did great. It was a long day. We left Trent's parents house at 6:45 am. We flew through PHX, OKC, and then Dallas Love field before finally arriving home at about 4:30 p.m. It felt good to be home! Homeward bound! M&m's are getting us through. On our last stop SLC -PHX-OKC -now to Dallas Love field.

Family Reunion day

Today we spent the whole day with all of Trent's family. 7 kids, 6 spouses (although Nelson wasn't with us), and 16 grandkids. We met at Jennie's home and started an "Amazing Race." We had a lot of fun following clues all over. Then we picnicked in the park. Then we met at a stake bowery to do a slip n slide and shoot off soda bottles. Then we had dinner at Trent's parents and the kids watched Dennis the menace outside. We had a lot of fun with everyone!
