SLC Feb, 2012

I cannot believe how far behind I am.  Back in February I took the kids to Utah.  Most of our family had never met Brady and Brandon was out of town so I decided it was time for a little vacay.  Wow, there was a lot to do in a short amount of time but we loved it.  Well most of us loved it.  It was a really hard trip on Brady and he ended up being sick for literally about 2 months after we got home.  Poor baby couldn't handle the time change and i think he was a bit overwhelmed by all the love he was getting.  So many people that wanted to love on him, hold him, play with him.  Its great to have so much love....hopefully he will be able to handle it better next time.

When we got there on Tuesday, we had a big party......Scentsy, Stella & Dot, Vault Denim, Tastefully Simple, Baby Bee, some jewlery, some bags........i think that's it.  Each of my sisters and myself invited as many people as we could and then Holli and Katie took fliers around their neighborhood.  I didn't get as many Scentsy orders as I would have liked but overall, we had a great turnout!  

Wednesday, Katie and Ryan blessed their little Quincy.  What an awesome experience it was.  I'm so glad we were able to be in town for it.  They adopted him from South Africa.  It was a 2 year + process and by the time the finallly got the ok to go pick him up he was 15 months old.  What a lucky boy, if I do say so myself, he was brought into a great family with awesome parents, sisters and an extended family that loves him to pieces.

The rest of the time was spent playing with cousins, hanging with sisters, eating lots of food, going to lunch with friends, getting family pictures taken for my dad and Jan, lunch with Brandon's mom and sister and hanging out with Annie a little bit which was nice.

                                                              Grandma with a few of the grandkids
                                                       Annie's Mia and Brady
                                                    Auntie Annie and Brady
                                                            Brent, Lupe, Ana Karen and Brady
                                                Holli's McKinnley, Mitch & Heather's Hunter
                                                  Katie's cute family at Quincy's blessing
                                                 Quincy and Ali
                                                  Grandma Wendy and Brady
                                                               Quincy and Katie
                                                               Mitch, Brady and Heidi
It was a super busy trip and I have to say I was ready to get Brady home by the end of the week but its always fun to see family and spend time "at home" with my sisters, parents, neices and nephews.
