Home again Home again, jiggity jig!

We spent last weekend in Utah. What a wonderful time we had seeing our kids and grandbabies! My sweet daughter and son-in-law put us up for the weekend with wonderful accommodations. Saturday we were able to see Sean and Nessa and sweet William when we all went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. *yum!* Sunday we woke up to a major snowstorm which caused us to be a little lazy and slow  15 minutes late to church. After, we skipped out on  left church a little early so we could get down to Springville in time to have dinner with Ben and Erin and their boys. Erin made a fabulous creamy soup and homemade rolls. *delish!* Chris came over and it was great to see him as well!
It was fun to have Ella and Coleman wake us up each morning. On Monday, Ron bravely succumbed to the arm twisting  volunteered to take Ella and Coleman to Barnes and Noble to "look" at books while Shannon, Hudson and I ran over to Target and spent a few minutes shopping and talking without being interrupted even once . Then we rescued picked up Grandpa Ron and the kids at Toys Are Everywhere Us. Ron and I bought a new rug for his office at Tai Pan for dirt cheap...now how to get it home?? We wrapped it up in bubble wrap and a couple cardboard boxes that were folded over, and checked it on the plane with our luggage. Slick! After all our flight delays and connecting flights, we made it home and in bed by 2:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. OIY!  But it was all worth it! Good trip! Thanks Ron!
