We have been away, and just got back this last weekend. We (the kids and myself) took a trip to Colorado to visit family and friends. We all had a great time, but wished Sean could have come too, maybe next time. While we were visiting there was a brother there for Arkansas who was holding some extra meetings. It was nice to get to sit in a few extra meetings while we were there. We heard some really good things. It was nice to go back and feel so loved and cared about.
Most of the time I spent at Naomi's house, but it seemed like I didn't really spend a lot of time with her during the day because she had to work a lot. Most days were spent visiting with different ones, and chauffeuring the kids around to visit there cousins. One of the days while we were there. I took a group of the teen/pre-teen girls to the mall. We all went to lunch, and then went to try on prom dresses in the mall. They had a great time, and I took pictures of them in there dresses for a little keepsake.
Eating lunch together...Just the girls!

All dressed up!
We had quite and adventurous trip home. Within a couple hours of leaving Junction Hayden started throwing up, and didn't stop all day. I stopped and got a motel and did some laundry. Thankfully Hayden slept pretty well during the night. The next day he was still sick, but luckily was over the throwing up stage. I finally got home Saturday afternoon. It felt so good to be back home. Every time I leave for a while and come back I have such a grater appreciation for my surroundings. The air seems fresher, the bed seems softer, and I just love my surroundings. There's no place like home!
