Before our awful attempt at driving home, we had an absolute blast in Utah. The trip was VERY last minute. My cousin called me on a friday and mentioned she wanted take a quick trip down to visit her family before her baby was born...Of course I jumped at the chance to go home for a week! We left 6 days later and had a fantastic 15 hour ride. Luckily for me, the kiddos were complete angels. (I'm sure the constant goldfish, movies, and fruitsnacks didn't hurt either!)
I knew the trip would be really low key. My mom had major back surgery just two days before we arrived, so we went down with no plans. we just wanted to relax, and I wanted to help aid in my mom's recovery any way I could.
So, we did A LOT of story reading...
And when Auntie Candise and Eliza Jane came to visit there were even more stories to go around.
And when no adults were around to read to Jack, he made do all by himself...I'm pretty sure Jack looked at books for most of the trip.
I didn't complain.
Of course we fit in some time for pudding,
and walks in the sunshine.
One of Jacks favorite things to do was play "this little piggy" with Nana's beautifully pedicured toes.
This is about the only picture I could capture of our sweet patient recovering from back surgery...she wasn't feeling quite "camera beautiful" enough for a close-up. Maybe next trip :)
