My Mama's Visit

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.  ~Tenneva Jordan

My mom came to visit in July and I never had the chance to blog about it, so I wanted to take a moment.

I was so much fun to have her here!  We drove down to Utah to pick her up on a Saturday. Quince (who was also in town) came to play games and hang out, and so did Amy, that was a lot of fun.

On Sunday we went to Dana's baby blessing, and then crashed her luncheon afterwards.  It was fun.  

Then we went and took some pictures at Nature Park.

Monday we went to spend the day in Idaho Falls.  We went to the zoo and got some pretty awesome pictures.  Then we went shopping, and ate dinner at Wingers.

Tuesday in the morning my mama and I went shopping and I got some fun new clothes (because I couldn't find any sandals I liked ANYWHERE).  We also made sure to go to the Taco Bus for lunch (I'm pretty sure that was my mom's favorite part of the trip).  Then during the day we went to Egin Lake.  It was so much fun, and luckily we all escaped without any leeches (that we didn't notice until after we were done swimming!).  

That evening went to see the movie "17 Miracles."  It was so good, and I'm pretty sure we all cried (except maybe Zak :-P) .

Wednesday we relaxed a bit and went to the Temple.  It was great to be there with a small part of my family.  It's such a peaceful place.

Thursday afternoon we all went for a picnic lunch in St. Anthony Park.  It was gorgeous and we had a lot of fun before Zak and Mom hit the road to head back to Illinois.

It was so much fun to have my mom here.  We had fun cooking meals together, and all my dishes were clean the whole time she was here! :-P  The only sad thing was that Dad, Ben, and Nathan weren't there.  Next time we'll have to figure that out. :)
