The boys and I headed out west again a couple of weeks ago. I decided to head to Utah so that I could attend the Alumni weekend at my old stomping grounds, good old Salt Lake Community College. (I will blog about the good times there in my next post.) We were able to spend lots of time with Grandma, Lisa, and Lily, do some shopping, eat at some yummy places, and see some other friends and family. I must say, Dustin is probably thankful for the lack of shopping and good restraunts in Laramie, cuz when I go to Utah, I get a little....well spendy/shopping crazy!! :)
One of the first days there, my Grandma and Grandpa Hansen came up and took us to lunch. It was great to get to see them and visit with them!
The night of my alumni game, we stayed at Rick and Stacy's house. Jack had fun with his cousins, and Zander was well taken care of by his cousin Aubrey. Here he is wearing some of Aubrey's socks to keep his string bean legs warm!
The next day, before we went for more alumni fun, we were able to go to lunch with some great friends from Bozeman -Missy and her little boy Abe! When Jack and Abe saw each other, they ran and gave each other the biggest, sweetest hug ever! Here they are being goofs for the camera!
After all the alumni festivities, we stopped and stayed the night with more family at Kirk and Amy's house. Here is Jack and Mylee having lots of fun playing together! :)
My cute, crazy nephews Ryan and Drew. (Drew was practically begging for us to stay the night, so we did!)
We watched "Despicable Me" (funny movie) and chatted. Here is Lisa, Lily, and Madison posing like goofballs!
Me being a dork with a bug face in Lisa's huge sunglasses.
Lily woke up one night and was being a silly, crazy kid! Here she is giving her "Chuckie" face as my brothers so lovingly deemed it.
This picture of the kids actually turned out pretty cute, other than Z crying. BUT the next few actually show how things were during the visit.....
Here is Lily attacking Zander and poking his eye. (She wouldn't leave him alone, especially driving in the car down and back to Salt Lake!)
Here is Lily getting shoved by Jack. (The stinker, he would not leave her alone. Pushing, tripping, shoving, stealing toys, yelling at her, etc. They had a bit of a love-hate relationship!)
My beautiful mom with Zander and Jack. (My mom thought Z hated her cuz he always cried with her...but it turns out he got an ear infection while we were there....so don't worry, mom. Come visit us and he will LOVE you (when he is healthy!)
Mom and the boys. (Seriously why is Z so little....oh wait he is exactly like Dustin and I as babies. The poor little man weighed in at 15'11" fully clothed at the doctor's and he is almost 9 months old!) But this is a very cute pic of my mommy and my boys!
