This Is The Place

Thank goodness for in-laws...they take pictures when you accidentally forget to pack your camera on a trip to Utah. 

You know it's a good trip when all you do is over-eat and under-sleep.  Spencer's youngest brother got married down in St. George.  It's been a full three years since we've seen his family.  We were way past due for a visit.

I lucked out.  I married into a really great family. The more I spend time with them (which is not often enough) the more I love and appreciate them.  This visit was the best yet.  I loved every minute of it.  We had a fantastic trip.  I don't usually mind living so far away from family, but I came home this time wishing we lived close enough to get together more often.  


I really have nothing bad to say about this trip.  The wedding reception was a lot of fun.  Down time at the house and by the pool was perfect.  The trip included late nights, good talks, crazy games, the best ice cream, cousins galore, too many trampolines, not enough sleep, daily outings, delicious doughnuts and lots and lots of laughter. 

There's no way we can can make it another three years. The kids are still asking to move to Utah and are making plans to buys houses out there when they're grown.

I'm happy to be a Smith.  It's a great family to be a part of.

So much fun! I love your boys in their polos... and I have to say that I am impressed that they have them tucked in! I can not for the life of me EVER get my boys to tuck in their shirts. Not even for church!
