Saturday morning we took the kids to LAX and they hopped on a plane and flew to Ohio to spend a week with Nana and Abba. They have both been looking forward to this week all summer. Abba likes to golf and watch movies and swim and play video games, so does E & G (except Lu not the golf & video games). Nana spoils the kids with fun shopping trips and Grace finally likes to shop and cares about what she wears. They love to visit with Uncle Brian and spend time together. It's a perfect end to a nice summer.
While we were there I texted Tori, I knew she was in CA, and she said come visit so we drove to her sister in laws beautiful beach home and spent several hours catching up. It was really nice. It's been a while since we lived near each other but the time doesn't matter when we are together again and the conversation flows and the friendship is strong. We missed seeing Rob, which was the only bummer.
Today we got up and went to ward council and then to church. Our pew was a little lonely and strange. Then we came home and napped and cleaned up, cooked dinner together. After dinner we went returning. We went to Shannon's first and returned the coolers we borrowed, we stayed for a fun visit. Then we returned a jack to Pat (left it on the door). On our way home we saw the Dunn's walking and they said they had just been to our house to say hi and bring us some jam so we invited them back to make donuts. They said yes and we had a nice visit and frying time together. I was Spud's teacher when he was a boy and now he's my neighbor so that's pretty fun!
