The End

Let me just wrap up our Christmas vacation...a month later...

While out west, Darin and I took advantage of being so close to the temple and went twice. We went to Idaho Falls our first week there and Boise our second (which is a new temple for me!).

 It looks just like the Buenos Aires temple! Which is pretty cool to me for obvious reasons.

 We hung out in Poky for a few more days before heading back down to Utah. We went to Wyatt's baby blessing on Sunday. It was really nice to spend Sunday with family, and to meet Anna's family who are a blast. Grandma Sharon gave Shae some play dough, which he LOVED (and still does. He knows exactly where it is and pulls it out every. single. day. Usually multiple times).

 We made sure to take advantage of the Idaho snow, since we knew we probably wouldn't be seeing much snow in Virginia.

The day before we flew out, we went down to Provo for a basketball game. We of course had to visit campus...and Slab Pizza.

Poor Shae had been having some stomach issues that really went wild at the Wilkinson Center. It's been a LONG time since he pooped through an outfit, but it happened right here on our old stomping grounds. Thankfully his grandma was nice enough to go buy him a new shirt. (Pretty happy for just having had the worst diarrhea of his life. Oh if we only acted as children do when we're sick).

Going over the fight song one last time before going to the game.

 Then off to the Marriott Center we went. Shae was really good for the game. Towards the end we had to go out and walk around a bit, but he seemed pretty entertained with all the excitement. The best part of the game had to be watching our nephew Kyler throw out some of the greatest dance moves known to man.

 The next morning it was back to the airport. Our flight in Denver was delayed three hours so we had a good long time to hang out there. We were SO thankful that Shae finally fell asleep. He really needed it.

When we got on the plane, we continued to make our way all the way to the back of the plane. We quickly realized that we were going to be sitting in the very last row. I was not very happy about that (no recline at all!), until people slowly stopped boarding the plane and we realized that the open seat in our row, was just that, an extra seat! Hallelujah! Having a seat for Shae to sit in/play in was GREAT. I would take that over a reclining chair any day. Although, he obviously didn't want to sit in the chair the entire time...

We had such a great time on our vacation. Our family is awesome. Period. It was great to be with them. Shae mentions them at least once a day now. I'm so glad that he was able to really establish them as a part of his life as he slowly understands relationships better. We can't wait to see Gan-ma Sharon and Aunt Mee-a again so soon when the baby comes (and my family too!).
