Monticello Trip 2010!

Crazy- hair Connor & Cindy at The Falls

So my baby sister graduated from High School on Wednesday. To celebrate, my sis Lucinda flew to Nebraska from Minneapolis and made the 13 hour drive to Utah with the kids and me (since Jake is stuck at work) to surprise Catherine and my parents. They had no idea we were coming. I wish I hadn't left my camera bag sitting on the high chair at my house, because my mom's face upon opening the door and seeing 3 small vagabond-looking-due-to-being-stuck-in-the-car-all-day-children gazing up at her was priceless. I also wish I had my camera to take pictures of the bows I spent most of my time making since I had multiple sisters to look after my brood (I filled a rather large order for my good friend's pharmacy/gift shop here in town. They turned out amazing!)

Luckily, my sisters have cameras and snapped a few photos of some of the more memorable moments of our visit. Highlights included: the graduation (of course!), a trip to The Falls in Canyonlands, the baby fox the family dog Sam caught (that Dad introduced to us during breakfast one morning), and the after-church photo shoot in front of the temple.

We head home tomorrow morning. Not really looking forward to the drive, but desperately looking forward to seeing my sweetie!

(Sorry. These photos are in somewhat random order. I started to organize them chronologically and then gave up. It was taking too long and I wanted to go play.)

What a fun trip - that baby fox is so cute, as are all the kids and aunties and, of course, their MOMMA!! You look fab, Millie! Have a safe drive home.

Glad you had fun with everyone, I'm jealous you got to see all your sisters! Hope you had a safe trip home. We miss you!

Millie is so good to see your sisters and parents (my sister) through your blog. Guess that is a trip that we need to take soon. Love, Aunt Carol.
