home again.


(walking away from the family picture, asian chocolate pudding, aunties at the airport, 
greatie and greatgrampa, making a funny face in the mountains) 

 
we really only skimmed our list of things we wanted to do and people we wanted to see (we really didn't get enough of the people). another week or two would have maybe covered it. we sure had ourselves some fun, though, and ellie was a very delightful traveler.

 
 (sittin' in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g)

 yet again, i ended up getting too wrapped up in life to take as many pictures as i would have liked, but i still got a bunch. one day i'll figure out this photo opportunity thing, okay?

 (visiting grampa at work, our bean at the bean museum)


i am pleased to announce that i did not gain any weight on this trip. 
i told my mom that it means one of two things: 
a) i ate really well and got myself some exercise while we were there
or b) i eat and play like i'm on vacation all the time, so it didn't make any difference.


i think we all know the answer to that one.

That little girl of yours looks a whole lot like her Grandpa!

Kristina can have the legs if I can kiss those cheeks!

There's nothing like family that's for sure, thanks for sharing!

I would love to write a comment about how jealous I am that you went to Utah but it just makes the hurt of not living in the beehive state sting that much more. Instead I'm going to make a comment on how amazingly adorable Eleanor is getting....we need more pictures of those cheeks! I love the cheeks!

It was SO great to see you and your cute baby and awesome James. I didn't get to talk very much with him or you and I feel bad about that but it was great to see your for a little bit!
