looking up from underneath
The last half of our trip was spent in Gilbert with the Lines. The week included the childrens museum with Bek and her girls, lunch with Grandma Lines, lots and lots of Olympic watching with Tim and Lori, swimming with Burry every morning, shopping with Lacey and Lexis, meeting sweet baby Margo, a session at the Mesa Temple, a ride in Tim's fancy new car, missing Laurice and her boys way too much, and an attempt at night splash with Brent and Lacey in which we got totally denied so did some tricks off the diving board instead (Hey Brent! You made the blog!)
We stopped in Flagstaff for a day and night to hang out with Jess, Darrel, and Eli. We went on a hike, perused through downtown Flag, cracked up at Eli, had THE BEST thai food and stayed up late talking and eating muddy-buddys.
The next morning we took off to Cedar City and saw my cousin Nick play Jem in To Kill a Mockingbird in the Utah Shakespeare Festival. (watch a clip from his show here. No really, go watch it.) My 14 year old cousin Nick, mind you. We we're so blown away by his performance. I am beyond glad we got to see it and I bawled like a baby throughout most of it. We got to visit with my Uncle Matt's family, my Uncle Scot, and my Denhalter grandparents.
We like Arizona. And our family. (And our own bed, turns out.)
