A Little About the Week

So Brighton was a total rockstar on our long road trip to Utah. She didn't complain once! It was amazing! She just watched Cinderella about 400 times. She is really into the princess thing right now so when we would try to get her to watch something else, she would say "no Mom, I wanna watch pincess." And so, like I said, it was Cinderella 400 times. Don and I now have it down, just about word for word.

The road trip to Utah was to attend my grandmother's funeral (see previous blog entry). Not a fun reason to take a trip to Utah, but we ended up getting to spend some good time with family and friends. We had a big barbecue at Bob and Linda's house and almost everyone from my Dad's side was there. It was so fun to see cousins, aunts, and uncles that we NEVER get to see. And same thing with my Mom's side of the family. We were all there for the funeral and it was so good to see everyone and their cute families and just catch up. We also had breakfast with Ang and Graham one day and dinner with Steph and Ben one night. So fun to see them too! We have seen my immediate family quite a bit recently which we have loved! I so wish we all lived close to each other! It was a week full of spending time with people we love and it really made me miss living in Utah!

Rockin' out, singing the ABC's at Steph's house. Brighton is a natural. :)

Bri seriously played in this suitcase for an hour and would have liked to play longer, but I finally had to kick her out so I could pack my stuff. You just never know what is going to be a hit with a two year old.
Um, yes, Brighton picked this out all by herself. Fairy skirt, blue polka dot shirt, pink boots, a purse, and a goat. And yes, the purse and the goat are part of the ensemble here. She carried them around with us everywhere we went for the entire day. Gotta love the fashion sense of the little ones. Definitely more creative than mine.

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your Grandma. She sounds like a wonderful woman!

It sounds like you had a happy reunion with family, though. I loved all the pics. And who doesn't need a goat as an accessory?? I think Brighton might have hit on something big!

I think the goat really completes the ensemble.
I'm glad you had a nice time in Utah, especially considering the circumstances.
I wish we could time it right to be in the same state at the same time! It'd be fun to see you.

I love the picture of you playing the guitar with Brighton. I didn't know you play. I've been wanting to for a long time (even bought a guitar) but, you know.
