Utah continued

The battery on the laptop is dying and Brian forgot the power cord, so I will be brief. Brian got back to UT with us this week and we are THRILLED to have him with us for the last little while before we return to TX. We are staying busy and loving the time we get to spend with our families here. Jake asks me constantly what our plans are each day, he is already concerned about how quickly this month has gone by and how soon we will return home. I feel a little like I haven't been home forever and yet the month really is flying by. We have been in SLC this week, but will head back to Cache Valley for Pioneer Day in Mendon. Then we will head to Fish Lake and stay at the cabin for a few days--I am very excited about that--it is such a beautiful place. I have always loved Fish Lake with all the aspen trees--they sing simplicity and peace to me. I have included a few pictures from our adventures, it has been a great trip so far.

We made the trip last week to Utah and have been here since Thursday, so almost a whole week. Brian is back in Amarillo fighting the fight while we are enjoying beautiful weather and wonderful family. We had a great 4th of July weekend and some jam packed days with cousins. My kids are beyond exhausted at the end of the day and go to sleep quickly. I do miss Brian so much and wish he were here, but so glad he is willing to do so much traveling so we can enjoy the family. We are headed to Island Park (outside West Yellowstone) tomorrow to spend some time with the Owens family--should be a great time. Some highlights so far...Jake & Sally bought fireworks and lighting those, Bear Lake, the Cruise In, camp out at Grandma & Grandpa's, walking the Logan River trail, boating at Newton Dam and watching my boys CRASH then crashing myself, and just plain relaxing on the porch swing! All this and more in 6 days--phew! No wonder we are all so tired! But truly having a great time!
