Summer Lovin' Havin' A Blast!!!

Ok....So I've been MIA for awhile. It was part mental exhaustion and part just being too busy to want to move when I got home. So, here's what I've been up to. Working....oh so working!!! I am just going crazy working and happily doing so well. The summer was busy with families coming to San Antonio to spend their fun times at the Alamo, Sea World and of course the world famous River Walk. It is a delight to behold. Through all of it I was blessed by the people staying at our hotel how they shared smiles and I was in many of their family pictures because they wanted to to make me part of their memories. It was a blast. I so enjoyed making memories with them all. Then my big day came....VACATION!!!! This has been the first vacation we have been able to go on since losing everything. And this was a vacation that I thoroughly enjoyed. The kids were going off the EFY at BYU....and we were driving from San Antonio. Oh yeah, now THAT is a road trip. Almost 24 hours of driving. We left early in the moring with the girls. We were headed over to pick up Bryan from his scout camp on the way out. We drove about 8 hours until we were able to pick him up and then it was off to Albuquerque.
Ahh New Mexico...the Land of Enchantment. And the most enchanting thing was this picture here. So sweet. We made it to Albuquerque and found our way to Provo the next day.
Now, my oldest, Rinni, has held a dream of going to BYU-Provo sicne she was 5 years old. I am not kidding you when I tell you she asked me how she could go to BYU when she got older. I told her she would ahve to get good grades and work hard in school to make it. The day she stepped foot onto campus I nearly cried. It was amazing to see her light up. To be honest I cried after we drove away where she couldn't see me. We'll find out later how she does when she applies in a few weeks. Once the kids were gone and Hubby and I were left to our own devices that is when the fun begins. Luckily, our friends from Idaho joined us for a few is some of our fun!!!
