Cross Country

We took a little (not so little) trip to Utah two weeks ago. The drive is supposed to take 2 twelve hour days...if you go the right way. If you decide to go via Mt Rushmore it takes 3...

Here are my boys at one of the hotels...

I slept with Jence for the first time- now I know that kids kick- but I swear I woke up at one point while sleeping on my stomach to find his feet flat on my back. After that he slept with Grandma...

Duke in front of the Corn Palace in South Dakota. This is 15 degrees below zero. Note my hand is on the cover- open click and close.

Al, this is the desert where I stepped down w/ my bare foot into mud...

HA!

Sooo... Mt Rushmore; worth the drive...? Why not.

Jensen opted for the girl happy meal toy this time...

And found a creative way to stow the comb.

Al, do you remember when I said I was taking a picture while I was talking...?

We stayed with Aunt Joan and Uncle Steve. Duke and Jence had so much fun!

We got to go see Grandma Cleo which was so nice- note Jensen's turtle on her foot rest.


I won't tell you how many pictures it took to get all three of them to look at the same time...


This is Nancy giving me cranial sacral. Mom neeeeded to take pictures...

And I'm posting them to show you what it looks like so that then you can see how cute this is...

Hehe! She got both Jensen and Duke all fixed up.


We took a little field trip to BYU- see the two cougars...

One of the goals of this trip was to get pictures of Duke going cross country, but between it being freezing and him being asleep we didn't get too many, so this was me getting creative...

If you look carefully you can see the Y back there somewhere...

This one is for Daddy...

Jensen and I went to see Monster Jam with Sarah (Dunn) Thomas and her son Talmadge and her parents and brother. Now let's recall who my son is. For the first five minutes this is how he sat.

Then we progressed to this, as well as tears. A while later there was some peeking.

Then this...

And finally to "I'm so excited, Mom!"

There is Grave Digger himself!

Trying to get a picture of this kid sometimes...

Look at Sarah covering Talmadge's ears.... It was sooo loud. Earplugs for sure next time!


I think he was saying that the truck "fffflipped" over

I love this- can't get the boys to look away from the action!

Grave Digger fell over! Jence will tell you all about it.

Look at that happy boy!
