Road Trip

My mom and I just recently returned home from our trip to Utah with my three kids to visit some very good friends.  It was about 12 hours one way and the kids did great!!  Thank heavens for DVD players!  My kids are also use to being in the truck for long periods at a time, so it wasn't very new to them!  We stopped a few times along the way and I was able to find a few treasures.  Would have brought home more, but my mom kept reminding me that we did not have much room!

We had such a great time visiting with friends!  Our friend Kelly has 3 young boys and my kids loved playing with them!

While we were in Utah, one of the top priorities was visiting the dinosaur museum!  Trent was so excited he could hardly wait!  Jim and Sarah and their families joined us and the kids had a great time!

I was able to get Trent to stand still for a couple pictures!  Here he is standing next to the leg of a "long neck" a.k.a Brachiosaurus.  This kid knows all their names!!

After seeing a movie about Sue, the T-Rex, the kids dug for fossils.  I think they would have stayed their all day if we would have let them!

And now we are home and missing our friends!  Thank you so much Kelly and family for opening up your home to us!  My kids are still talking about the "theatre room" and the mini basketball court!  Jim, Sarah and Steve thank you so much for taking time off work and traveling so far to come see us and letting the kids play - we had so much fun!  It was great to see you!
