In an attempt to get Bonnie to not whine as much on the car trip we bought a Scooby Doo coloring and sticker book. Alas it didn't work. The first three hours of our trip from Idaho to Utah she whined and fell asleep five minutes before we stoped for gas. We couldn't believe it. I laughed and told Jay at least she doesn't disappoint - we always know she'll whine in the car. I was totally laughing when I said this and he looked at me and said you love your family don't you. And I said yep I do - and I do, they are just so freaking awesome.

We left Jay in Logan to watch a BYU game with my sister's husband and three boys. Turns out my sisters baby (he's seven) tried to start a fight with three men sitting next to them. The were cheering for the other team and totally thought my sister's baby was so cute - apparently baby was yelling Aggies suck and other silly phrases. Sister's baby was so proud of himself.

Saturday found my sister and I leaving Jay with Bonnie and us heading out to fabric stores. Again we found my sister's baby telling Jay funny things. Sister was telling Jay he can eat anything he wanted. Sister's baby piped up and said "if you need to know where anything is in the pantry just ask me. I'm in there everyday!" I just about lost it - he is such a character.

Really the one thing that made this weekend great was spending time with family and many many giggles. I think that is always my favorite when we can relax and just laugh.

Sunday was the best. Jay, me, sister, & sister's hubby headed up to Salt Lake to a religious conference and it was so awesome. We were so lucky to get to and just enjoyed ourselves. Here is Jay smiling for the camera - we were pretty high up and off to one side of the conference center.

We headed home and enjoyed a relatively quite ride home. The kids were exhausted beyond belief. I enjoyed it while all three people slept in the car and I just sang out of tune to some of my favorite music.Hope everyone else had a great weekend.
