Iceland Again

We're in Iceland again! Blogging over HERE

Saturday, August 25, 2012


We spent 3 weeks in Utah last month while John was in Thailand and Hong Kong. We came home just in time to be at home with him for 2 days before he was off again. This has been a very busy several months with very little family time! It's been hard, but it'll be worth it in the end. Luckily, we'll be together in Iceland for about week and it'll be no work and all play. Hopefully it will be a much needed break for John and some good reconnecting time for all of us. As soon as our trip is over, though, the madness begins again and John will be flying directly to Alaska, then on to Italy, Barcelona, and several other locations through November. It's impossible to keep track of his schedule!

Anyway, some things we did in Utah with my family...

Will chose to have Thai for dinner in St George
in honor of John being in Thailand.

A break in central Utah during our 15 hour drive.

Stopped in to visit Aunt Misty at her bakery in SLC.

Pretty and green.

Cousin Evelyn was born! Violet weighs about twice as much as her here.
They are exactly 14 weeks apart.

This and That

Just a few things we've done this August. It has been very very hot and we've been spending as much time as possible outside the house. Lots of mall trips to walk around in the air conditioning. As well as: weekly beach trips, a fun art class with friends, planning our first year of homeschooling, cute babies, Griffith Observatory, and counting down the days until we leave on our trip to Iceland! John has been there for two week already and we'll be joining him in a week. Can hardly contain our excitement!
