Trip to Moab

At the beginning of the month Alex and I made the long trip to Moab to stay for ten days. Alex did great on the trip over, although his face was stiff from his antics with a sucker by the time we arrived at our destination.

The first weekend included a long drive up to Logan for the Clarkston Pageant. It was so great being with family, even if the acting in the pageant was lacking. Guess we have to look past that and focus on the testimony of Martin Harris instead.

 Lindsay and Kynlee came to spend the week with me at Dad's house. Our first Sunday there was fast Sunday and my dad bore his testimony and said he was grateful that two of his children had come to clean his house. After two days of cleaning it only seemed a little better.

Or just getting into Papa's stuff

Even though Alex isn't always careful with little Kynlee, these two were so happy to be back together.

The final weekend of the trip was spent at the cabin with Aunt Valerie and her fun children and Aunt Daryl and the rest of the family. Alex was so happy to have his aunts come to love on him. He wore himself out playing with cousins on the mountain.

 Yes those are my aunts allowing Alex to stand on the table.
 Do you think they had secrets to tell??

Alex and I had so much fun!! Andrew was able to study hard his second week of Med School, but we were eager to get back together again. The drive back home included road construction (think major delay and stop and go traffic), one child saying, "no music" for the last hour, gross milk throw up in the final half hour and a major tantrum as I tried to get Alex into the bathtub while we waited for Andrew to come home from dinner with classmates. It may be a while before I muster up the courage to make the long journey to Moab all by myself with my wild little toddler again. Thanks for the fun time everyone!!
