Home again...

Well, I just got back from Utah. My 3 day trip was a good one. Other than the sorting out of storage (the sole purpose of me going there). I would never wish that on anyone! When I got home, the kids asked who I saw, so I was running down the list of people, and they were really jealous! My nephew, Daxton, was sure not happy to see me by myself! The look on his face when he asked his mom, "Where are the other ones?" was priceless! Zackary - next door neighbor from Oregon - reacted quite the same! It was fun though! I got to hang out with my cousins! We went and saw John Tucker Must Die, which was pretty funny! I was at the theatre with my cousins: Erin, Kara, Damon, and Ian. They range in age from 8th grade to 21 yrs - and then there's me...old and pregnant! It was fun though! They're great people! I also managed to get a pedicure with my sister-in-law Raquel. I hung out with my dad quite a bit...I went and previewed houses for my mom. Allisun and I started a few craft projects...but due to my short time there (and a request for cilantro) it didn't get finished! I hate that! Oh well, next time? Thank heavens my flight came home on Wednesday night and not Thursday morning! That would have been miserable! I feel for any mom traveling that day with her kids! On the plane home, I sat next to this mom who had a 14 month old with her. Nobody wanted to sit by her, so I volunteered...I told her I was quite used to it! People can be so rude to mom's while traveling! So, FYI - smile at mom's on planes...not the sarcastic smiles either...I think people forget how hard it is, and have no patience! I'm not really looking forward to my flight back to Utah with a 3 week old baby, and my 3 kids! I'm really going to get the funny looks, and I'm sure my favorite comment: "My, you've got your hands full!" When you have one kid, the comment is always, "how cute!" with two kids it's always, "oh, 2 boys, how fun" with three it is both..."well, you've finally got your girl"(like that means you're done now) and "my you've got your hands full". Do these people really need to comment at all? I don't even want to know what it is with 4. My patience is wearing thin with dumb people. I guess living in Utah, you can't get too many comments? Please tell me I'm right...Oh, I'm posting my favorite picture of Kristin...lately, anyways. If you wonder why I don't have cute pictures of the boys, it's because they're past "being cute" now. I have to catch them off guard if I want a cute picture of them...and frankly, I haven't had the time to try...So, here's Kristin modeling some new "school" clothes.

You are exactly right. Now wherever I go I get the 2 boys comment. can't wait for the "now you got your girl." I love the picture of Kristin. I want to go to a water park or an amusement park so badly. Looks like you had a blast.

I know what you mean--past being cute. Noah never was cute for the camera. The only 3 smiles I have captured with the camera were candy bribe fake smiles!
