An extended holiday!

The kids and I went Saturday to my parents house in Springville. My Grandpa's 80th birthday was in Delta on Sunday and I didn't want to miss it! It was totally worth all the driving too, we had so much fun! It's always fun to see the whole family, but just as an added benefit, the MUTANT PINE NUTS were amazing! I'm not kidding! They are huge this year! And after making myself sick on them not once, but twice...I still don't think I've had enough!
We were a little late getting home on Sunday night, so instead of making the drive back to Vernal in the dark, the kids and I played hookey today and spent the day in Springville with my mom. We ran a couple errands, ate lunch at Olive Garden and went to the mall for the soul purpose of buying "smellies." I needed it, and I loved it!
I was spent though, the kids had worn me out! We were ready to go home about 3, but decided to take some pictures in the leaves. I think the kids had a blast, grandma had a pile about 3 feet high already started! They jumped around, and posed just enough to get a couple of great pictures between the two of us! Thanks for letting us visit mom! We had a blast!
