When we left for Utah Rob flew out to Buffalo, NY. He had a work thing.
Then he got back and worked. It's all very glams!
One fun thing is he worked the Lockheed pavilion for the LA Air Show. He got to see lots of fast planes and had free food and a good day.
The valley is so pretty right now. Green and in bloom. The poppies are going crazy!
These two buddies hang out together a lot...but Steve doesn't get to go to church.
He got the TV to himself, but didn't have help pulling weeds in the yard. Pros and cons :)

Also today we were getting ready to go to Grandma's for dinner and Marshall disappeared for what I thought was 5 minutes. We found him in the bathroom redecorating with toothpaste. He had the wall, toilet, a lot of the floor and his hair covered by the time we got to him. So obviously we left him for 5 1/2 hours and not 5 minutes (not). He is fast! and creative.
Tatum mostly slept in her own room but she also slept with Grace in the living room a couple of times.
Ethan and Moe are the only ones who stayed in the same bed the whole week.

So we made the best of it but it was definitely a plan B day.
This morning we went to see Beauty and the Beast. We all LOVED it. I loved it even more the second time.
When we came home we loaded up the car and went to the BYU bean museum. It is small, but fun, and free, so that's good. We had a fun time.
Uncle Ethan helped Moe when it was his turn to read the scriptures. So sweet.
And finally here's the vacationers. They are having an awesome time and it's been fun to see the snap stories and to chat with them each day. The kids particularly have been enjoying watching the stories over and over.

Hannah and Marshall and Sierra
Another nice day so we got to spend some time digging.
After school finally got out (it was soo tempting to let Tate be "sick" today.) we went to Provo to the soap factory. It was a cute little shop right across the street from the new City Center Temple where you could make soap, scrubs and lip glosses etc. We made soap.
It was pretty fun. Penny enjoyed it the most. She spent a long time working on her little soaps. She made apples. I made a bundt cake. Marshall and Hannah were partners and they made R2 and Tatum made a bar with a butterfly and flowers on it. Ethan and Sierra watched and offered support.
I spy...a beautiful temple behind a cute boy.
Grace made a scrub. It turned out really cool.
Hannah took the early finishers to walk around the temple grounds.
Grace and Tatum made slime when we got home. They both loved it and played with it the rest of the night.
love these two!

Miss Penny had a party to go to today. She also had preschool so that was a busy fun day.
Marshall has been so good. He was a little sad one morning when he first got up and he's asked for his mom a few times but we've been able to distract him and he's been busy playing and having fun. Also he is so cute.
Today is Tatum's gymnastics day. Grace and I stayed to watch. Her gym is really nice and she is a cute little gymnast.
Then when everyone was ready for bed, and the kitchen was clean I left Hannah in charge and met Val at Zupas. I don't think we have ever gone out to dinner just the two of us. We had a fun time talking and going to Wal mart after for tape and glue.
The week is going by really fast. It's a lot of fun being here.

We found an awesome present as well as some diggers to bring home.
Marshall played with them all day. First he played a little in the backyard. Then he took them along as we walked Penny to school. Right next to her school was a construction site. So we watched. And Marshall's little digger dug.
It dug under pipes, and by curbs. It dug next to the scoop of a great big digger and around some trees. It dug in some mud, and some grass and some water.
When we came inside he slipped out the back door and continued to dig. His partners swapped around but he was constant.
Papa and Grandma came over and spent the afternoon too. We had a fun, if somewhat distracted visit. Val and her family came for dinner this evening. We had breakfast for dinner which everyone loved. Kenz was working but had a half day at school so she came over earlier and we went to lunch at Cubby's. Utah seriously has the best food.
