Quick Trip

Last weekend we took a quick trip down to the valley to hear my Aunt Pam and Uncle David speak at church about their mission to the Dominican Republic.
We traveled down on Friday and spent the night in Florence at Adam's brother Richard's house. He and Cali were so sweet to let us stay and made us feel right at home. On Saturday morning Adam took the kids on a very adventurous buggy ride with some of the Gurrs. From what I hear, it involved a lot of rock crawling, and the kids weren't exactly thrilled with the trail. If MY kids were scared, you know it was a rough ride.
I, on the other hand, had a very fun  time thrift store shopping out in Casa Grande with my sister-in-law Becky. I found some new treasures for my shop and enjoyed visiting with Becky and getting to know her better.
Saturday evening we met up with the Andersons and went to  MONSTER JAM out at Chase Field. All the kids loved every minute of the show.
Even with the earplugs it got really loud in that place.
The highlight for the kids, was seeing the Motorcycle riders doing all their crazy tricks and flips out on the field. The highlights for me were seeing the monster trucks jump and crash. I got a few pictures of the excitement::

We spent Saturday night at the Andersons, then  got up bright and early on Sunday to go to Pam and David's  ward.  It was so great to get to see and hear them after 18 months of missing them. They had so many incredible and uplifting experiences to share, and I loved seeing so many aunts,uncles,cousins, and my grandparents.  I hope that one day  Adam and I can serve a mission together.

The rest of the day was spent hangin' out and having lunch at my parents house with all of my siblings. I love when we all just sit around and visit while the kids play with cousins, and that is just what we did.  I am so grateful to be a part of TWO great Families and for all of the fun we have together.
It may have been a quick trip, but we made memories that will  last forever.
