Blog Bucks: the last post's title was from Clueless - Congratulations to Isaac, Sarah, and G-Sauce
The rest of my time in Utah was spent with family (a little bit with Christian's family). I got to spend lots of time with Sadie and get to know her better. Love this little girl, she is so active and funny. I love how much she enjoys dancing and well...she is apparently mine:
|Saddie is on the left and I'm on the right...see a resemblance?|
|Her teddy bear that she absolutely loved, but would just dump and leave when the going got rough.|
|yeah....she IS totally me|
|She had this amazing trick of losing her pacifier while we were walking.|
|Jamba Juice!! How I have missed you!|
|I thought she looked so cute in her pink dress!|
Sunday we were able to go see the water fall and the nudist ranch (yes, you read that right).
|We both fell asleep on the way there|
|Touching the water|
|Tasting the water|
|I'm trying to imitate the bear to my left|
Then I was dropped off at Christian's because I had a 6 am flight...which apparently, Christian did not. We had the same layover, but we were about 6 hours apart. He dropped me off at the airport and I picked up in Richmond. Sunday night though we played Ticket to Ride where his 7-year-old nephew, Zach, beat me....but beat his father worse. It's okay, I have lost Chess to a 6-year-old before, but that's not why it's okay. It's okay because Zach trash talked, and he did it well. He had a good strategy, completed all of his destination cards, and had an amazing poker face...okay, okay, the poker face was a lie. I knew when he got a wild and when he got a card he didn't need, but in the end, that didn't matter because he didn't let on to where he was headed and so I couldn't have blocked him. It was an honor to lose to him.
I loved this visit to Utah. I had kind of forgotten what it was like to take a vacation where you just relax most of the time. I feel very well rested and am a little sad to be back at work, but we've got to work so I'll get over it.
