…is a long way from home!
We had the opportunity to go out to Utah for Nate and Leslie’s wedding this month.
It was really fun to go out and see lots of family and friends.
And the wedding was beautiful! We are so happy for them.
They are the cutest couple ever!
The trip. . . in raw details. . . 

Fact- We looked like the Beverly Hillbilly’s trekking it through the airport-2 kids, 2 car seats, 2 backpacks, 3 carryons! Fact- I hate to fly!
HATE it!
I hated it before 9/11. . . now forget about it.
Everyone looks like a terrorist.
Poor Jared!
(Not that I think he looks like a terrorist,
but he has to put up with me and my totally rational thoughts.) 

Fact- The silly airline separated our seats on most flights
so we had to ask people around us to switch seats so that we could be together to take care of the kids.
And well, let’s be honest, so Jared could take care of me.
(And tackle all of the terrorist looking people as they got up to use the bathroom.)
Because I watch everyone like a hawk.
Why am I so paranoid? 

Fact- On one flight the lady that sat next to Jared actually said no to switching her seat
so that my 2 year old could sit by us.
Who does that?
Lydia was sitting in front of me and turned around with huge tears in her eyes.
I almost had a massive meltdown right there in front of everyone. Almost.
Instead the mama bear inside me made my MIL switch seats with me while we were taxiing the runway.The flight attendant came on the intercom and reminded us it was federal law to remain seated while taxiing.I wanted to remind her of something, but I bit my tongue.
I had to comfort my baby!
And although it was not my finest moment,
I did throw a few elbows on my way out of the isle without giving Ms. lovely a chance to get out of my way.Like I said, not my finest moment, but I’d do it again if I had the chance. 

Fact- We had a 3 hour layover in Denver on the way home.
2 tired & hungry kiddos, 3 tired & hungry adults with lots of “stuff” to lugFun times!
In all seriousness, it was a great trip.
Very busy, but great.
We spent a lot of time in Logan-
at the wedding and visiting Jared’s side of the family and old friends.
Lydia enjoyed playing at Urgrossmutti’s house-
picking flowers from her garden and fruit from her orchard.
And Grossmutti made us lots of yummy food.
We also spent lots of time at my papa’s house visiting family.
Lydia loved Papa-Great.
She took to him immediately and was his little shadow the whole time we were there.
I love how at 94 he still gets on the floor and plays with the kids.
Is he not the cutest Papa ever?
One night Papa-Great was watching the BYU game on TV.
He was eating dinner in the living room so that he would not miss any of the game.
Lydia had to take her plate in there and eat with him.
It was so sweet!
We also got to meet baby McKay in real life.
What a doll!
We got to be there for his baby blessing too. So sweet!
Lydia and Liam are going to have so much fun growing up with cousins their age!
It was sad to say goodbye to everyone, but oh so good to be home!
