Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jog

Trip to Utah Top Ten

10 - Peaceful flights

9 - Getting to know all the neices and nephews again, and still feeling a certain distance from the tears! Katie's walking! Rand's almost 1! Lindsey is a climber (I once saw her climb halfway up the door just holding onto the knob!) Iris looks just like her mom! Abby is so good at keeping the little ones entertained! Peter couldn't get enough of the trains! Michelle is so cute in her pigtails and dimples! Christine is adorable!

8 - Watching Mary so calmly decorate that cake. She was amazing, and the cake was just like the picture!

7 - Jumprope Contest with Abby (she won)

6 - Meeting Erin's new inlaws - they seem very nice and only a little odd - just right for inlaws!

5 - Staying up until atleast 2am every night talking to Mary, Sarah, Laurie, and Heather!

4 - Painting all the porch columns with Sarah and Mary in about an hour.

3 - Cousin Lisa arriving and taking over the kitchen: dipping strawberries, arranging all the food on trays, preparing the punch, and cleaning up - it was a life saver!

2 - Seeing all the people who travelled far and near to celebrate Erin and Bridger on their wedding day!

1 - Lighting the sparklers as the newlyweds ran down the path and away....


The wedding was beautiful. Just beautiful. But even more fun was running around with my mom and my sisters. I wish I had been able to stay a couple more days, but I'm so glad to be back home with my own little ones.

Nathan met me at the airport with not one, but two leis! I think he missed me!

I am alllll for peaceful flights. I am flying by myself to Chicago next month and cannot wait for the flight alone. :-)

I'm glad the wedding turned out marvelously, along with all the other festivities. And what a great looking group of babes. :-)

I loved reading about the wedding and looking at the pictures.

You all look like you have fun together.Congratulations to Erin and new hubby.

Drat! So that means this summer I've already missed visits to Utah from Carronin, Hollywood Flakes, and now you, too. So sorry. I would've crashed the reception just to say hi and give you a big hug.

(And it's only June yet.)

Glad you had a great time. And how cool that you are a two lei wife. Awesome!
