I got a bonus trip to Utah this year. My mom had surgery where they placed a device to fix a hole they found in her heart. (It is called patent foramen ovale (PFO)). She was very lucky that they even found the hole. Her surgery went really well. And she seems to being recovering great!
We loved the excuse to come see family and that is mostly what we did. I did get to see a few friends. I loved being able to catch up with them.
Here are a few highlights of our trip.

This was maybe my favorite moment. My mom just retired from teaching school for the last 32 years. She used to keep her guitar at school and sing with her first graders but now she plays for us!
I love a fire even on a hot summer night. The roasted marshmallows never tasted so good.
We had a few rainy days. To beat the rain we took Lilly and Kate to the play area in the mall and let Lilly ride the carousal.
The Grandpa's took the girls fishing at a little fishing pond. I think Lilly like feeding the fish more than anything.

Madie and Lilly had a lot of fun together.
All in all we had a fabulous trip!
