I had a prolonged moment of insanity and decided to drive to Provo alone with my kids. Rinar did a brothers trip and since he was going to be gone for the week, I thought, "oh, why not?"
Did you know it takes over 8 hours to get there?
But we still had fun. We stayed the first night in Wendover and I pulled in to the hotel registry Thursday night at about 10pm. I was tired and I just wanted to get my kids to bed. First, I couldn't find the room and thought I was going to go crazy. Then, I go to open the door. It is three floors up, Eli is asleep in my arms and my older ones have to go to the bathroom. The key did not work! I got so mad and frantic I decided to take it out on the door so I kicked it as hard as I could. I had on my sandals, so I only managed to stub my big toes pretty bad.
After a trying ordeal of trying to get the babies to go to sleep, they finally succumbed to their eyelids and I fell asleep, sort of. But I had this really achy big toe. It felt like it was broken. What an idiot!
We spent Friday with my good friend Melanie and her crew. It was a blast. Except, because of sleep deprivation, Harry and Julia were horrible. So I strapped them into their car seats, turned on a movie, turned on the car and left it idling for about 1.5 hours. I say it is cheaper than a babysitter and can you really put a price on sanity?
Isn't this the most scrumptious little baby? This is Melanie and Jared's latest girl, Taryn. She is a good little baby.
On Saturday I went the the Despain Family Reunion in Provo. Despain is my grandmother's grandmother's family and her posterity. There were a lot of people there. They have quite the posterity. Here is my Grandma N. and my uncles Barry and Dave.
|They just had a little moment here. Brotherly love, you know?|
|My sister Catye is getting married in October and here is her man, Mike. My kids LOVE him. Hence, I love him. He will make a great addition to the family.|
