apologies and rest of trip

Grandpa and Izzy

Grandma and Izzy... G'ma can't look at the camera and smile and keep her eyes open so we just take the best shot!

Ok so I just reread my last post. All I can say is wow... we all know I am not the most proficient writer, but man that was bad! I guess when you're at a friends house and you don't want to take to much time that's what happens. For those that don't know my parents only have dial up and can't get DSL or Cable out where they live so it can take up to 15 min for 1 page to load. Needless to say, I don't try the internet there!

So on to the rest of the trip. We got home this past Sunday and all I can say is I now have 1 more reason (as if I needed it) why I should NEVER move to UT. One word... Turbulence. Flying in from the West over the mountains when you're pregnant, can't take anything and are easily motion sick anyways was not the best combination. At least I was able to wait until we landed.

We had a great time with Grandma and Grandpa. Isabel was outside helping to feed the horses morning and night. She only missed 3 feedings the whole time we were there. My little girl LOVES horses. Saturday night we were able to get Isabel on Sam to ride. She went faster then last time and was loving it. Unfortunately it rained the whole time we were there... oh wait the sun was out Friday and that's it. I've never had a vacation out there like that before!

As you saw in the previous post we had dinner with some great friends who are celebrating 2 years together this August, hung out with Niki and Keegan (and some of Ray when he wasn't sick) and of course Ms. Kate. Kate was in town doing another wedding and Mike and I were able to go and help her assemble the center pieces. It was great so see all three of my closest friends from high school and not feel rushed as all.

Below are some pictures (I never got any with Kate, why does that always happen!) with the Bonnells, lots with horses and family. Oh and the day we left happened to be Father's Day and my sister called to wish a happy day to my dad and we got to talk to her! It was so fun to speak with her although she had been at the hospital, finally caught a bacterial infection over there but she sounded in good spirits.

The cats ran from Isabel the whole time she was there... until Saturday night. They are not used to loud, excitable children!

Grandpa was trying to teach Izzy how to do some lat pull downs

helping Grandma load hay for a nightly feeding

on the phone with Auntie Leslie

She was trying to look like a farmer with the hay in her mouth.

It looks like when she was talking to me she was either thinking hard or making funny faces. I like to think that little brain is working hard. Sounds like it was a fantastic trip! I'm glad I got to talk to you all, too. When the World Cup is over, and internet in Africa returns to normal, we can Skype! Love the pics. Bigs hugs all around!

My lord she's half grown!

I hope that this baby looks a little like you. I mean, it's just sad how much work we do to have female versions of clones for our husbands. LOL
