On Friday I got up bright and early and headed to Mt. Timp to go to the temple. I hate to admit this but I used the GPS on my phone and got lost!!!! I put in the address and didn't notice that the phone put in the city as Pleasant Grove and not American Fork. As I was driving, I kept thinking "this doesn't feel right"--I WONDER WHY!!!!
I had a bunch of errands to run to get ready for our dinner that we were responsible for Friday night at our reunion! The house where we stayed was amazing. It was great when all the kids started arriving. I was pretty excited about finally getting to meet our little great-granddaughter Katelyn. What a little doll she is. I had seen pictures, but it was GREAT to finally get a chance to hold her. And there were so many others I hadn't seen in what felt like ages. For whatever reason, we don't skye with most of these families very often.
I know it had only been a few days since I had left Allan in Winnipeg, but I was pretty happy to see him. I needed him and was glad he was there!!!! He had stopped to pick up B from BYU Idaho. (His little girlfriend spent some time with us, and it was glad to meet her.)
The family time was great. I was very glad Heidi and Daniel were able to make it there. I know it was very difficult for Heidi to be there--sitting and watching everyone eat and not being able to eat would have been pure torture for me! Had a great dinner--tri tip sandwiches and fruit salad. Quite delicious if I do say so myself!!!!
The little ones had a great time playing together. They all got along so well. Each of them have their own personalities, and it was fun to watch them interact. Some of them have spent lots of time together but some hadn't. I have to admit it does make me sad that I don't live closer and don't get to see them very often.
Saturday morning we headed to Park City. Of course, I couldn't help but think about the 2002 reunion when we were there before--such great memories. The family was smaller, but that was such a great trip! It was a little warm, but it seemed like everyone had a great time. Most of the parents did quite well with their little ones. I remember the days when our kids were that little--not always easy to try and juggle, but you just do it. I didn't ride the Alpine slide but absolutely loved the coaster--much more my thing!
