I left Utah not looking back. So no one was more surprised than I was when I was counting down the days until I could go back. We had such a fun Thanksgiving and we spent it all in a few hotel rooms at the Marriott. It felt like a vacation for everybody and we had so much fun being in close quarters with my family and having room service. Cha ching!
Ivy kind of stole the show.
You just can't tell until you're holding her, but she is so teeny tiny! None of her newborn stuff fit her so we would do wardrobe adjustments. Must be nice....
PS- Ivy hearts planking.
Someone asked my dad, "Is Ivy a family name?"
Dad: "Yes. She is named after my great great grandmother's..... plant."
Ugh, I love my dad!
Had to make a stop at a few of our Provo faves that we totally miss in Tucson.
And one of the biggest highlights of the trip, going to my old school. This was actually something that was a little hard for me to do. It's definitely the thing I miss the most about Provo and it's been a difficult year not teaching. The kids heard I was coming and the girls even wore Cheetah print (they're the besssst). Luckily it was an inside recess day so I could go to each of their new classrooms and catch up with them. I left the building a little teary eyed. A huge part of my heart is at Westridge.
We stayed up late, we slept in, we went out to eat, went to movies, played games, laughed, shopped, etc. etc. Thanks to my mom and dad for the good times. Love them times a zillion.
