I’m having trouble trying to figure out how to post about the rest of our trip, way too many pictures and too much to say. So until I figure that out, let’s talk about Labor Day weekend. Because so much is happening around here I’ll never catch up.
We are currently trying to hang on to every minute we get with Claire as she prepares to start the MTC (Missionary Training Center) a week from yesterday. So it was fun to have her here for Labor day when Lucy is home (that girl loves her big sister like nobody’s business I tell you!).
We kicked off the weekend with a retinal specialist appointment for Lucy in the big city, but we’re not going to dwell on that here. That girl has had so many eye appointments lately. The good thing is that we got to have Claire join us for that, AND this new doctor knew a lot about BBS which is really hopeful.
But let’s start at when Dave met us in the city for a special dinner:
And then a hike to one of our favorite spots to watch the sunset:
On Saturday Dave and I had the opportunity to go to a baseball game with friends.
It was kind of exciting that this guy and his cute family happened to be sitting right next to us:
I don’t know why that picture is such bad quality, but that’s Michael Phelps. And he is so nice.
Meanwhile these girls had a pretty grand evening just the two of them, fitting in all kinds of things including, of course, cards:
Loved church on Sunday, (I am loving “Come Follow Me” studying 1 Corinthians right now), and then we had Dave’s brother and his family for dinner:
I don’t think we’ve ever just had our two families together with so much family around so we adored this evening to be together.
Sure love those guys.
On Monday, as luck would have it, we happened to have tickets to another baseball game.
We hadn’t been to a game in years and here we are, twice in a weekend.
…and home for dog walking, willing the weather to please cool down…
And a night swim to wrap up the weekend.
In “away kid” news (big news for Elle and Carson!), these two moved to NYC for their FIFTH externship:
Hopefully more about that soon, so excited for those two to spend a couple months in the big apple.
This girl is getting all her cousins going (or maybe they’re getting her going?) with tennis up in Provo:
And Murphy continues to be the apple of all our eyes:
Oh how we love her!
And there we have it: a wrap of the highlights of Labor Day weekend. Oh there were some “lowlights” too, but just highlighting for now.
Sending love out from the desert on this Tuesday morning!
