Two weeks ago the kids and I flew to Washington to visit my parents. "Gram-mom" and "Gram-pa" were so good to us! This first post (of a few I'll post about our trip) is filled with pictures of our time spent at home sweet home. :) Adam came towards the end of the week to cheer on my Dad and me as we raced in the Beever Freezer Triathlon, hence he's only in the last few photos of our gorgeous, rainy hike to Cougar Creek, one of our favorite walking trails, on Sunday after we listened to inspiring General Conference messages. :) Thank you so much Mom and Dad for such a wonderful week!! You were so patient with the kids (it was a rough week for those two) and me.
We love and miss you more than we can say.
^^ Lots of little handprint traced. :) ^^
