Seven Reasons Suggesting You've Been Out of the US For Too Long

  1. Your child asks you what a penny is.
  2. You get honked at for passing someone on the right shoulder. (There's like a whole lane over there!)
  3. Seeing the American flag makes you teary.
  4. Seeing the Target sign makes you teary.
  5. Your daughter says that her Wendy's Kids Meal is the best dinner ever.
  6. Every song on the radio is new to you.
  7. You have no idea who Justin Bieber is.

Mom and Grandma


I spent the weekend in Idaho with my grandma, my mom, and my oldest sister. I took the kids to see Grandma Great. They were troopers making the 6-hour car trip only to spend the weekend in a nursing home.

It was so nice to be with family.

I love this picture. Both with snowy white hair. The resemblance between them. Mom found out this week she is going to be a great-grandma, so that makes Grandma Rosemary a Great Great. Truly.

Maya's First Rainbow

For a few months, Maya's wish has been to see a rainbow. She was convinced that while in Utah, her two wishes would come true. One: to see fireworks, and two: to see a real rainbow. Fireworks were easy. She loved them.

However, the Lord provided her second wish come true in a very awesome way. Shining right down onto the Salt Lake Temple. It was beautiful!
