Utah

What a great weekend! The girls and I drove to Lehi, UT on Sunday and spent several days with my sister's family while she (Robin) and her husband played Ma & Pa for their ward trek. It was so fun. Regan and Hadyn loved having Erin, Alli and Jenna to play with, and I loved watching them. Erin is 12 going on 20, and was so awesome. Not only is she beautiful, (see below) but she is the most responsible, helpful girl I know. I would think, I should go throw the swimming towels in the dryer, or I should go sweep, and I'd find Erin already doing it. I'm thinking of kidnapping her...

We spent most of the time in the pool, which was so great. Although, the game they chose to play was called lifeguard, and it's not one of those games that allows the adult suppervisor to read a book. Every 30 seconds or so someone would be yelling help. Looking back I probably should have come up with a better game, but they were loving it.

Here's Alli, amid the sea of swimmers. She was definately my comic relief. I wish I could bottle her energy and carry it around for emergencies. She never stops smiling. Hadyn thinks she walks on water...


Jenna and Regan are only 1 month apart in age, and they love playing together. Aren't they cute!


You can never have too much eye protection...

Hadyn loved the pool. This was as close as I could get to her actually standing still...One of the best parts of my trip to Utah was catching up with my roommate from Ricks College, Courtney. We lived together most of two years, and had since lost touch for OVER TEN YEARS! This was the first time we had seen each other during that time. We (or should I say I...hmmm) had fun getting to know each other again. Here we are as new college students. Courtney is the blond in the red, our super-cool (then and now) roommate, Rebecca, in the middle and yours truly looking super hot in some skinny-leg, navy blue jeans. Cute. There were six of us in that apartment, and the three of us sort of stuck together. I can't believe it's been 16 years since this picture was taken. We have 9 children (I think) between the three of us, and so much wisdom...no laughing. Court is still as cool and fun as ever, and hopefully we'll stay in closer contact than we have in the past. I did convince (beg) her to give me her address, so now she'll have to physically move to lose me.

I'm so glad you enjoyed your trip! And I'm glad you reconnected with Courtney! (should I be jealous?)

Hey Maria, It sounds like a great trip. I really like the perm and penny loafers too.
