 We made the all night drive to Utah and after getting all settled there was a serious order of business we needed to attend to.  The kiddie swimming pool at Oma's house isn't as elaborate as the fountains in the plazas of Qto. but it does spurt water and it is safe to play in.  After weeks of not being able to put their hands in the fountains of Mexico the girls were able to finally jump right into the water.
 Daisy continued to live the high life by snacking on pineapple sorbet served right from the shell.  So what if it was from Costco instead of Hawaii, it still tasted good.
 We went to the Ogden Farmer's Market and Jill found herself a new cat.  Rocky immediately named it Ghostbusters.  I don't know how she comes up with these things on the spur of the moment.  Although he has an odd name, he is the sweetest little kitten you've ever seen.

 We spent Sunday with a bunch of the Rigbys and ate a feast of fresh veggies from Mike's garden.  When you add his produce to what is growing at my mom's it is like veggie heaven.  I seriously cannot get enough because when things are home grown they taste so much better.
Rocky is also a big fan of the garden.  She came walking in eating an ear of corn.  She had found it out there, shucked it herself and dug in.  It didn't seem to bother her at all that it was completely raw.

We also took a walk to the pond by my mom's house and it was such a beautiful night that I didn't want to forget.

We've been having so much fun spending time with family.  It feels so good to have so many people who show so much love to us.  I think it is one of the best things ever to watch my kids with their grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  I also really enjoy being in my hometown.  I know that everybody feels a special connection to the place of their beginnings, but there really is something pretty awesome about Ogden.

Marci! Are you in Utah still? If you are here and have any spare time, let's get together!! I have a zoo pass and I can take your whole family to the zoo for free. Or, come to my house! If you have time, although I am more than sure you are thrilled to be with family after all your traveling.
