I have two more days until I go back to work. I'm extra sad because my working from home is officially over for good. I know that once I get into the routine of things again it will feel normal...but it is a tad harder mentally knowing I'll never get to work from home again.
We had a fun last trip of the summer up to visit some good friends in Idaho. While the time on the road was long, it was so worth it. We first stopped in Vegas and it didn't disappoint. The kids just loved it. We walked around some of the big hotels and the vastness that is that city really hit them.
We next drove all the way to Boise and spent the next few days visiting with our friends, Matt and Jana. I'll admit, despite doing some fun things like taking the kids to a recreation area (roller coaster, chair lift, etc.), some of my most favorite times were sitting and talking (such great conversations!) out on their back porch, which to me was like sitting outside in a resort. So green and relaxing. Our kids got along so well and the time really couldn't have gone much better.
On the way home, we decided to break up our long travel day and spent the night in Provo, UT. We all commented on how fun it was to see different cities along the way and just be together as a foursome. We ate dinner at a pizza place which had the best, most unique breadsticks we have ever had! Last night I tried to recreate them and it did not go so well... :)
Kendall just returned from summer camp. She simply glowed as she described her week to us. She absolutely adored it. Tomorrow they will head up to Debbie and Wayne's for, "cousins week" (Hannah and Lauren will join them). We do this every year and it really helps us out since I typically have to go to work a week earlier than them. Then when they return, we will tackle what will be quite the year of juggling. With Cam at a different school AND in cross country, our weekly drop offs and pick-ups have become a lot more complicated!
