Trip to Utah

So the kids and I were so lucky to be able to go to Utah for two weeks. Sterling is such a wonderful husband that he volunteered to drive the kids and I to Utah, and then fly back to Tucson the next day. And it just worked out that on the way home, Sterling's mom was going to be in SL from Dallas for a family reunion the weekend I was to go home. So she was so nice to help me drive home to Tucson with the kids then she flew back home. I very much appreciate the both of them for taking time out to help the kids and I get to and from Utah!! It was so much fun to see all the cousins and watch Brooklyn interact with them. Of course it was fun to see the aunts, uncles and grandparents as well! The kids were so lucky to see all five living great-grandparents and have pictures with them all. Besides seeing the great-grandparents, great-aunts and uncles, we were able to go to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house, I was able to go to the temple a couple of times each time with a different sister, Brooklyn went swimming, and pretty much the kids just played and played until they were exhausted. I just loved seeing my family and watching Brooklyn get to know her extended family. Trevor also enjoyed the visit and I am sure he just can't wait to get up and play with all the kids. Well, this last thing then I will be done, the kids would be outside just playing and being normal kids, and where was my daughter? She of course would find my mom or dad and help them with the yard work they were doing instead of play with the kids. What a silly girl! Stay tuned for some pictures of our trip to Dallas during the 4th!!
