Uncle Marc was at the airport when we landed ready to great us. From there, we headed straight for St. George. I can't believe I was more worried about the airplane than the car... she HATED the drive! HATED!!!!!!!!! (Can't stress that enough) She pretty much fussed and cried the entire 5 hours. SO crazy because a week ago, she loved the car... crazy babies. Still, it was SO nice to catch up with Marc and it ended up being a nice drive anyway. Once we hit Cedar, we put in a Primary CD and she finally fell asleep. We stayed with my Uncle Bruce and Aunt Shirley. When I woke up in the morning and was feeding Olivia, I looked out the kitchen window to find this amazing view! They also cooked us a really yummy Denny grand slam style breakfast, that I was actually able to enjoy because Olivia was sleeping and still exhausted from the day before. It was so fun to be able to visit with Bruce and Shirley, I LOVE that he has Grandpa's sense of humor. He was so funny to talk to!
After Breakfast we headed over to Grandpa's to meet up with Charlotte and Paul. When they walked in, Olivia had woken up and was not happy. I don't think she was a fan of the heat. Grandpa didn't mind though, and still kept smiling at her and saying how cute she was. Lol. He loves babies, and we love him! So Charlotte tried to calm her down but she wasn't having it. Finally, I was like 'Is there a bouncy ball in this place?!?' As soon as Charlotte walked in with one and I started bouncing Olivia, she was out cold.
I LOVE my family! I don't get to see them enough, and the time I do get with them is never enough. I miss them so much! It was nice to just sit back and visit. Grandpa's hearing is getting worse and worse, but what I've always loved about family gatherings is that although Grandpa can't hear and usually has no idea what is going on or what anyone is saying, he always has this big smile on his face, and I can see how much he just enjoys sitting there watching his family interact... it's enough for him.
Sunday morning we woke up and went straight to the pool. Olivia did MUCH better this time! It was really hot though, so I'm sure she was more than happy to jump in. There was a puppy that kept coming to the fence to play fetch. We wouldn't play, but Olivia was entertained watching him try, and I think she just really enjoyed being outside. The pic on the right is her laying out by Mommy. It was so fun! And I FINALLY got my starter tan. I LOVE Utah sun!!!!!!!
