Thanks everyone for wishing me well on my trek to the airport. Everything went just fine. We met up with Guapo whose flights were neither delayed nor canceled. The kids traveled like troopers and we arrived in Salt Lake late Friday night.
We are now staying with Guapo's parents, Grandma Sue and Grand-dude who live in Midway. That's right. Grand-dude. He's too cool to be called "grandpa" so he is Grand-dude. It's pretty cute to hear all his grandkids call him that, but I always chuckle when I think of them all grown up talking amongst others about their "grand-dude".
Since June 28 the longest I have slept in one bed, consecutive nights, is 4 nights. I am waking up in the middle of the night trying to figure out where the heck I am. Oh well.
We took care of our primary Utah business yesterday. It's a devious little plan that we have involving our kids.
Every trip, we take them to our alma mater, BYU, and "have fun". We buy them a t-shirt or a sweatshirt and some treats. We are hoping by doing this they will have such fond memories of BYU that there's no way they will even consider going to some other school. For those of you who don't know, BYU.Is.Cheap. With three kids (so far) we need cheap college.
Trip 2006: Mission Accomplished
Well, Guapo and I are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this month, so we are off to San Francisco tomorrow for a few days without the little ones. Grandma Sue and Grand-dude have graciously offered to take care of Margarita, Julio, and Juan Carlos while we ride cable cars, eat crab (my mouth is watering just typing the word!) and just hang out and relax. I can't wait to sit on the airplane all by myself tomorrow morning and read a book or take a nap!!!
(I am taking my computer, but I'm not sure Guapo will love it if I blog on our anniversary trip. We'll see!)
