Salt Lake or Bust!

We have had a wonderful, fun-filled three days with the Condies!! Wendy (Tony's sister) and her 4 cute kids stopped at our house for a couple days on their way to Salt Lake City (from Louisiana) to spend July with Grammy Joan.

They arrived Friday evening just in time to play for a few minutes and fill up on some pizza. Saturday, we packed a lunch and hit the zoo! (Darling picture...maybe because I'm not in it! Ha!) Then we had a BBQ dinner, the big kids and Wendy got a tour of Tony's haunted office (a story for another day) we put the kids to bed and scared the crud out of everyone watching I Am Legend.

Sunday, we went to church, the big kids, Wendy, Josh and I went to the Trail Center and then picked up Grammy Joan at the airport (she's driving back to Utah with Wendy and the kids).


When it got dark enough, we caught fireflies for the kids to take to Utah to show their friends...they apparently don't have fireflies in Utah. Sad but true. If you look closely, I even got lucky and caught a couple of bugs on film.

Today, we played hard, hung out at the house, and hit the new sprinkler park by our house with all seven kids. It was a gorgeous day and the kids were delighted to frolic in the sun and water...even Josh.

They'll head out tomorrow morning early, and make their way across the plains. Thanks so much for the fun, fun visit. We love you and look forward to returning the favor in November! Be safe...

Look! Yards! Porches! Something you don't see in San Diego.

Sounds like fun! Jason chose to rent I Am Legend last week. It scared the crap out of me. I hate having things jump out at me and I still hesitate before going in a dark room. It will be the last time he is allowed to choose the movie without supervision!

What a fun visit! You're right, it is too bad that we don't have any fire flies.

We don't have fireflies in Idaho, either. What a fun memory for them! You guys have so much fun stuff to do in Omaha.
