quick trip to Phoenix

Curt gave me a beautiful gift.
At the beginning of the year he told me to find a weekend where I could go see my grandparents (I haven't seen them in too long) and that he would have a weekend with our big kids.
It ended up that my mom was heading to Phoenix over Shane's spring break, and it was General Conference weekend so Curt wouldn't be needing to play the organ at church.
So I went then.

So so good to see these people that I love.

It was perfect.
Perfect temperatures, perfect seeing family, perfect that the flights all worked out.
And bonus, Melynda came with her family.

Grandpa just had the pool resurfaced.
Too cold for me to get in, but that didn't stop Melynda's crew.

We watched some conference (though I'll definitely need to review) and cuddled some baby.

I looked at old pictures and found some gems.

It was Easter too.
Great weekend to get a spiritual uplift from Conference.
The kiddos colored eggs, had a hunt, and got baskets.


 It was just the best. Good for the soul.
And then I was so very happy to see my husband and my other babies.
