Leav...in'......On A Jet Plane...

Actually, we already left and came back. My girls and I just had a wonderful "Girls Weekend" together. We flew up to Salt Lake, stayed with my In-laws, saw my brother, Andy, and met up with Sara's cute William.
Below: Andy, Sara, me, Emily and Grandpa. Grandma was scheduled to play on her bowling league that afternoon and couldn't join us. We missed you!!

My sweet brother, Andy, took time off from work that day to join us for lunch. (You remember Andy with the groovy sandals from my last post, right?)
I took the next two photos for you, my blogging friends. This was in the lobby where we had lunch and was SO stunning.

After lunch, Will met up with us... (drove down from up north where he's attending school this semester). Andy got to meet Will for the first time.
My handsome big brother. : )

Thanks for spending so much time with us that day, brother. We miss you already!
On this night (below) Sara and Will went out for the evening.
Look who got pumpkins as a 'thank you' for all their kindness, delicious meals and sweet hospitality. We miss you both already, too!
On the way home, we just had to capture this full moon outside our window.

Greeted by part of the Welcoming Committee. : )

Waiting and waiting for Aunt Sara's bag to finally show up.

I left so much out, but just wanted you to know what we've been up to. We had such a wonderful time. Look for me to be catching up on your Sites this week.

Hi ML~Just a few comments here....
Your girls look so much like you!
Your brother is a handsome guy and the picture of the 2 of you is great! (I'm sure your Mom will love seeing these)
You are waaaaay to young looking to be a grandma!
Enjoyed your photos. Isn't it great to have "girl" time? I am leaving tomorrow myself for New Jersey to spend a few days with my (one and only) sister and then a long weekend with my (one and only)daughter in NYC. Lots of laughs to be shared! Have a great week!

So glad you had such a great trip. Happy that you are home safely. It's great you could visit with family and attend conference.

What fun! Looks like you ate at the Joseph Smith Memorial bldg. If so....did you try the deep fried pickles???? THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!!!
We were in Salt Lake on Saturday. Maybe I passed you, and would have never known it. HAHAHA

Enjoy the week.

So glad you got some family time...I always get so homesick as the holidays approach. The floral arrangement was very stunning. Looks like a great time was had by all!

If you have time to skip over to my blog...I featured the witch you made for me. I love her!

Mimi Sue said...

Well, that lobby sure looked familiar. Don't you love that place? Your brother is a cutie. He must work in downtown SLC. Next time you come we should go to some thrift stores together. Or better yet have a craft day. Bloggers would come from all over to craft with you! Mimi

I love Salt Lake City!! I have an uncle who lives in Logan.

You guys looked like you had so much fun! I know how much fun getting together with family can be!

You, by the way, are just the cutest! And Holy Cow, I look like I could be your mother's age when compared to you!! What the heck is your secret??!!
