We had a wonderful time visiting Utah this past week.  We spent a lot of time with Cathy and children, and visiting Grandpa Christensen.  The week was full of swimming, library visits, a dinosaur and life science museum, fishing, playing at parks, and of course, visiting with the family.  Becky, Adela and I also enjoyed a trip to Sandy for Paul’s cousin Amy’s bridal shower.  It was wonderful seeing some of the extended family again.  The boys each caught a fish with Uncle Brian and Matthew, and my, were they excited.

Cathy sent home some costumes that her children have outgrown for Adela.  The child is in heaven, especially with the cheer leading skirt.  Adela wants to wait till it snows (good luck with that one!) before she wears the sweater that goes with it, but she found a t-shirt to go with it.  I wish you could have seen her face when I pulled all of the pretty clothes out!

Becky was SO sad about leaving Katelynn.  She only gets to see her once or twice a year, and a week wasn’t nearly long enough.  So, we left her in Utah – but only for a couple of weeks.  My parents will be traveling to Utah on July 30th and will bring Becky back home with them.  She hasn’t even been gone for a full 24 hours, and I miss her so much!  I don’t know how I’ll survive the next couple of weeks.  I was worrying myself silly last night.  What if she gets homesick?  What if she wakes up with a nightmare in the middle of the night?  Paul assured me that she will be fine, and Cathy is rather experienced with children, and Becky will have a blast.  I know she will – she and Katelynn were so very excited.  The boys were rather put out that they didn’t get to stay up in Utah with Isaac, but I love Cathy too much to do that to her her!  Besides, I need somebody to provide mischief and keep me busy, and the boys fit the bill perfectly.

As soon as I unpack the camera, I’ll upload some of our pictures from the trip, but I’m going to close for now and take a nap.
