Uploading some pictures from my phone from our last weeks in Salt Lake:
This was such a cute photo session with Edie and Jubilee :) ... and :(
Of course the moms don't ever get a picture together until the last moment. I love this friend - that statement doesn't say much.. but the tears streaming down my cheeks at just writing them do :(
I just love this one. Sam kept running after her as we were leaving, giving her a dandelion or whispering something silly in her ear.
Last bike ride to the library:
Wednesday night at Bryan and Jen's with takeout Chanon Thai. Moved on afterward to Tia's backyard for more wine and some fun little presents for Graham and Vera. I put Edie down at home and came back over - when will I ever have such an awesome setup where I can put my baby down about 25 feet away from the party?
Someday I will have a garden as successful as my neighbors':
Tia's dirt pile:
taking some last pictures before we headed out... this is the bottom of the closet door where we had marked the girls' growth... read closely :)
As you can see, Vera liked to get measured.
Playing at the Gateway fountain with Jack and Fiona. These two friends just click. And of course I have no picture of their mom and me :(
Dinner at Pago with my dear friend Shannon. We had some special treatment, including a little series of mini appetizers like this gazpacho here. I loved seeing the girls enjoying such a delicious gourmet meal! Shannon is such a wonderful friend, I'm so glad we met at that ill-fated restaurant job a few years ago :)
Building fairy houses around this tree at Liberty Park... I hope we meet some good friends here that will play like this with Vera. She was driving me nuts this morning - I think she needs her friends.
We had to get out of the house for a showing and so went to the park where Graham and Vera ran through the fountains, they were pretty funny:
It's so sad [sorry you're probably like O-K Anne I get it that you're sad :)] to do that final cleaning in your empty house. A little easier knowing that we'll be back at some point in the near future. Should have gotten the biggest Uhaul :/
Just about to leave... looking at this picture makes me glad at least that drive is over! Whew - 10 hours by myself in the Volvo with 2 non-napping girls and a bunny. I treated myself to a grande coffee frapuccino with an extra shot in Elko :) [usually a regular ol' latte kind of girl]
there will be more! I need to peruse Ben's phone.... and I still need to make the blog private. I figure Mr. Stalker can see where we used to live :)
