2012 Week 33

The last few days of our visit to Utah were less about doing things and more about visiting with friends and family.  The kids spent all of Monday hanging out with Gma and Gpa while Sam and I headed down to the city where I had lunch with Alisha, we did some shopping, then met up with Darren and Kelly for dinner.  We made the comment on the way home about how nice it is to have long term relationships with such great people that when you do get together no matter how long it's been, it feels so comfortable and good.  The kids spent the night with the grandparents and we checked in with them before heading off to more lunch dates - a nice chat with Jacalyn for me and a final visit with his mom for Sam, then a final date at the movies since we hadn't worked in any time for that and we hadn't managed to see a movie by ourselves in months and months.  The kids of course had a great time with their grandparents, making cookies, a sewing project for Kate and Gma, and a shopping trip to the western store where Tyler got new cowboy boots and they both got fancy new belts.
Mom dropped us at the airport Wednesday morning and we headed home.  Again, it was a fairly smooth trip.  We did have a 2 1/2 hour delay on the second flight, but as the layover was originally way too short and we might have missed our connection if it hadn't been delayed, we didn't mind at all.  The airline gave us meal vouchers and we happily took our time eating dinner at Outback Steakhouse there at the airport.  Ty loved this kangaroo statue and insisted on having his photo taken with it before we went into the restaurant.
The rest of our week was spent recovering from the trip and trying to get ourselves back on our regular time schedule and normal routine.  Funny how it takes a couple days or more to get back on track after a vacation.
