Sisters in Zion

I'm back, with my batteries recharged! I feel renewed, ready to take on Spring cleaning, ready to take on kids bedtime routine, the cooking , the food-only shopping. Buddy's memory of me was fading. But, it only took half a day for him to remember that I used to be his favorite person.
What fun. Sister/Mom week was great. We tried on clothes that were oh so cute, ate out often, went on long walks, played games, read books, explored Zions National Park, watched Celebrity Apprentice, and ate lots of Reeses Pieces.

I have to say that I haven't laughed so hard in a long time--We laughed until our guts hurt. Sometimes the humor went a little too far. Like the time when we were in Zions driving through the one mile tunnel carved into the mountainside and my claustrophobic mom was on the verge of a panic attack. When we finally neared the tunnel's end--the light at the end of the tunnel-- my sister slowed down almost to a stop and said "We're out of gas." The look on my mom's face had her..(us) in an uproar! My sister quickly zoomed out to safety and we continued our scenic drive --although she was hunched over the steering wheel in laughter and could barely steer.

Thanks to Brandon for being Mr. Mom for 5 days and for all the family that helped.

Ok, now I definetly need to make it down to St. George. I bet you saw blooming flowers and trees and don't you just love the St. George temple?
Oh, and the tunnel...try running in it at night. Now that's an experience...and illegal, but when your 16 who cares?

Sounds like a true retreat!

It's my turn for some fun like that.

We sure had a good time with your family though.

Glad you made it back and I bet your kids were glad you made it back as well. Not that daddy isn't the life of the party...

It was great to see you (even if ever so briefly) I promise next time you're down this way there won't be quite so much dust :) (I finished painting and all 4 shelves are back together!)
