A Great Trip

We are back at home in Colorado after a great trip home (and yes, we still think of KS as home) to visit family. We had so much fun! The week started off with a wedding, then meeting Eiley Grace/#19, then a family reunion, a volleyball game, a little swimming, a trip to the airport to pick up Daddy and there was also some relaxing with family and visiting with friends. It was packed, but it couldn't have been better. The best part was that the kids got to play with their cousins. (Sorry Kymee and Kyle, they actually lump you guys into the cousins group.) Seriously, I barely see the kids when we are back there. If cousins or aunts and uncles are around, they disappear and kind of fend for themselves. It does always take a while to adjust to our regular life when we return to CO, but they have behaved better today than they did yesterday, so I guess that's all I can ask of them.

We always have some funny moments when we are there. The one that comes to mind right now is a conversation between Zetta, Grady and myself.
Z: "Grandma Kristy said that Dominique and Divante are DYYYING to see me."
M: "Oh, yeah? I bet they are pretty excited. They haven't seen you in a long time."
G: "I can't WAIT to see Dominique and Buh-dan-tay!.......But, why is they dying?!"

Dominique and Divante are twins that belong to Bryan's cousin, Heather. Poor Divante (duh-von-tay). His name must be hard for everyone to say because Great Grandma Mary said that when the babysitter's son talks about them, he refers to them both as "the Dominique brothers!" ;) Very funny! I love kid talk!

That is so funny! When my kids have asked similar questions it makes me stop and think about why we say things the way we do. I often don't have good answers.

Very sweet and funny! Reminds me of my sister praying, "Now I lay me down to sleep...If I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take." Her 2 yr. old boy look up at her mournfully and asked, "God kill me?"

Glad you had a good visit and that you are back HOME. ;-)
