A much needed getaway.

Lets play catch....up! haha! So last weekend I finally got the opportunity to visit my family, its hard to make time to go anywhere when your husband works EVERY Saturday, but this weekend Deryck had a business trip to go on and had to drive through Cedar so I thought it would be a good opportunity to visit the family. Deryck drove down with a coworker who was also going on the trip the night before so that they wouldn't have to drive down early Thursday morning which is good news for me so I wouldn't have to drive him EARLY that morning. The kids and I drove down Thursday night and surprised my family, it was so much fun! It was so nice to get to hang out with everyone and play games together again, have a dance battle while playing the XBOX kinnect (which by the way is Flippin awesome!) and just sit and laugh with my sister and mom. Grant even got to have dinner with the ward missionaries (my mom was feeding them that night) and he was so excited about it. Aunti Andi and Uncle Tyler treated me and the kids to a showing of Tangled, which was absolutley fantastic and it was Evyn's first real experience watching a movie like a big girl with her kiddi combo pack and her own seat! It's not often that we get to go to the movies, so The next day we went to Harry Potter, with my brothers Anton and Aaron, and my all time favorite Alexis (aka aaron's/Grant's girlfriend ;) ) and Deryck, Love love loved it! Saturday I got to spend some time with my dad while giving him a ride to Orderville to pick up a work truck, good chatting and good times, that is until his work truck's fuel pump stopped working on the way back just 15 miles up the canyon ;) Deryck's trip was more than successful which made the weekend even better ( we all know that is a good thing;) We topped off the weekend with Impromptu family pics since we were all together and it was a good time.
Gotta love my family, what a good looking posse!
I didn't get around to editing these but everyone looks cold except for dad, good choice on your background pops!

haha! my inner "special" came out in this one!

Could not get Evyn to look at the camera, granted it was cold and she just wanted to get out of there, but don't you just love Grant's cheesy face in all the pics? ;)
