We left for Utah on the 11th of August and after a LONG plane ride with a stubborn 16 mth old, we FINALLY made it. We woke up bright and early on the 12th and got to Salt Lake as fast as we could to see JC's life long best friend Zenock get married. (Yes... we named our Zenock after him. It was part of an agreement I made when I got married. :) We owe our trip to Utah to Zenock... (the whole purpose for going home.) Thanks for getting married, so we could come home! CONGRATS... again Zenock and Shaliese! We love you guys.
The rest of our week was spent hanging out with family and enjoying our time, which went by WAY too fast!
Our child absolutely LOVES fruit! He was so excited to be around kids and to be able to run around on the farm and play.
....Me and my cute boy....
Did I mention he loves animals and loves to cuddle.... Everytime we hold a stuffed animal up to him, he grabs it and gives it a big hug. He about went crazy when my Sister Emily brought him a new baby kitten. I was a little worried he was going to hug it to death. It was so DARN cute! He loved it!
You might be wondering where my husband is during all of this..... After the party, I found him in my sister's room playing felt paper dolls with my niece Mikayla. She is so sweet and has the cutest little voice. JC happened to walk past her when she was playing and asked her what she was doing, her reply... "I want to play paper dolls, but no one will play with me..." (she said this very sadly) "Ahhh" (Getting excited, with a sudden realization in her mind.) "Will YOU play with me?" How could he not say no to that. IF this happens with his niece, I can only imagine what hold our daughter will one day have on him!
Zenock got so spoiled and was introduced to "pop".... which he now loves and knows exactly what it is and has to have some if we have any. One of the last days there, we had to run some more shopping errands and then my Dad took us out to lunch. Zenock of course got his own "POP!"
I love spending time with these girls! They are seriously my best friends. It is so fun to watch my sister's grow up, go through relationships, make soccer teams, get new jobs, and be the one they call to tell about it all to. I love you guys!
We had so many other fun adventures and times spent with friends while we were home. I was even able to eat at two of my very favorite UTAH restaurants, Idle Isle and El Matador, courtesy of JC's Dad. (Thanks Again! It was SO good!)
Thanks everyone for hanging out with us!
Zenock crashed on our way back to Texarkana... He was so tired. I don't think he stopped for a minute the entire trip. IT was too much fun and way too short!
