Sort of a repeat of our Mike's family trip, we planned the same trip with my family. Usually we just visit Vegas or try to squeeze everyone into my condo, but this summer I insisted that we get away and not have any distractions.
Birthday fun with June.
Zions. We played and picnicked on the river for a bit before half of the family went up the narrows. June was in heaven. Dirt and water, her two favorite things.
After the trip I went to my family's for a week. Being there while they went through the day-to-day things made me really wish I could be a part of that. I'm the only sibling that doesn't live within 2 miles of home base, so I feel out of the loop sometimes.
My mom had a little work done on fixing her insides (the main reason I came for the extra visit). It was her first time going under and she was so nervous. That morning before surgery she sent out a text, "I love you. Remember to read and pray." I laughed since it sounded a bit like last words, knowing how very terrified she was of the anesthesia, but I think we we asked her about it she brushed it off and joked about making sure we read that night.-Her joking was done slowly, less obvious but all the more amusing as she was loving that morphine.
