Lots of Logan Fun

Okay, maybe it's just me or maybe it's summer or maybe it's the fact that I just started working a little...I don't know, I feel like I don't have time for anything all of the sudden! We went on a fabulous trip to see Jake's family in Logan and I haven't even blogged about it yet. I feel like I should confess to the bishop or something. So, here is a fun synopsis of our Logan Fun:

It was so exciting to see Ex-Elder Ryan Hutchings for the first time in over 2 years. I must say that he didn't change much. However, he was one of those guys that was pretty special from the get-go so he really didn't need to change. The biggest change is that he's already held a girl's hand, which only happened maybe once in his first 19 years (sorry, Ryan, don't kill me for that one). He came home bearing gifts of yummy Swiss chocolate and cow bells which made us love him even more.

Our first couple of days there were spent talking, eating, playing games, eating, watching, movies, eating, and did I mention eating? I gained some serious poundage there. It was fun to see friends and family again at Ryan's awesome homecoming. Then came the fun part: Monday!! We woke up to Cooper throwing up twice. Then all was peaceful and we got all decked out for our once-every-five-years-family-pictures. Yeah, you guessed it, on the way to the photo shoot Cooper ralphed all over the car. AAHHH!! Then immediately after the pictures were taken he threw up 2 more times. What?? The next days were filled with changing his diaper about every 15 minutes due to landfill-stenched diarrhea. I'm sure something fun and momentous happened those last few days, but all I remember is constantly changing diapers. The plane ride home, while I was filled with some serious angst, actually turned out okay. Cooper only pooped 4 times-a vast improvement! However, on the way home from the airport, I hear a sound that scared me from head to toe. A loud, diarrhea squirt/toot from who else but Luke?? AAHH!! Thankfully, he proved to have a much milder case of Cooper's virus.

We really did have tons of fun and am so grateful for the generosity and love of family. I feel so lucky to have such great, great in-laws. Love you guys!!


Our peaceful airplane ride, until the brand new battery ran out about an hour into "Cars".

Coop hanging out with his cousins-notice Kade's purple, fluffy, beautiful jacket...
Uncle Ryan met Cooper and Luke for the first time. My little Rocker!!!
Crotch Shot!! Grant pretty much reminds me of Bret Michaels. Cooper with cousin Chase. The infamous family picture day. Doesn't that little boy just look sick?Hanging out with Aunt Shalie. This is what I felt like doing for the next week. I was so, so tired by the end of the trip.

Hey! How fun! It was like a trip to Cache Valley from my computer screen :) Your kids grow bigger with each blog entry! I'm jealous of Luke's hair!

Yeah, I have no comment but YUCK! It's harder when you're not at your own house, with your own things to clean up the mess.

That last pic of you just looks histarical. You are just loving life right??? And who is trying to scratch your eyes out. BTW, you've been tagged. Go to my blog to check it out.

I'm glad that Cooper is feeling better, and that Luke didn't get it too badly. We sure had fun with you guys. Miss you already

I don't know how long ago this trip was, but I hope the little guys are doing a lot better now - and I hope that your pics turned out great. You should post them eventually. Both your boys are darling. Did you eat at Juniper Take out for me? I really miss that place... Here in Roch, we have ABSOLUTELY NO good places to eat - it's pretty lame.
