Two weeks ago...

It's been so great being back in Utah. The weather is wonderful, the mountains are spectacular, being around friendly people is refreshing, but being around family is best of all the game. The first weekend we came back to Utah my family came down for a visit and it was so great seeing them. We went down to St. George, did some shopping, and spent time together. It was great! The second weekend we were here we went up to Eagle Mountain which is where Travis' brother, Clint, and his family live. It was so great seeing them. It's such a blessing for us to be back in Utah. We really are so grateful to be back and are so happy to spend so much time with family again.
While at Clint and Danielle's we played Bananagrams, kinda like a short version of Scrabble. It was a ton of fun, and as you can see, child friendly. Avary and Akin did so great. Atkin would line up all of his pieces and then raise is hands up in the air and yell "I did it!" So cute.
I gave Avary bonus points for not only spelling her name but for using a 'v'.
We also spent part of the afternoon at Costco looking at all the wonderful Christmas toys that were out. The kids would practically tap on every toy they walked by and say "I want that, I want that, I want that". It was funny. Oh to be young again. We also watched movies, played with the kids, and played catch up on everything we had missed.

I really wanted to do this post two weeks ago but as always, time got away from me but I'm saying it now and it's better late than never. We love spending time with our family and are so grateful that they welcome us into their home. It's so great being close to family again.
