Two weekends ago, we ventured to Alamosa to go home for my "little" brother Justin's mission farewell. (Guess he's not that little anymore.) Brett was able to come for the quick weekend then had to get back for work on Tuesday, but Owen and I were able to stay a week and a half and spend time with the family. I'm so glad I got to spend a couple weeks with Justin before he left for two years. I can't believe Owen will be 2 1/2 by the time he gets home. Maybe, just maybe, we'll even have another one. But I don't even want to think about that right now. Justin is easily the favorite uncle to all the nieces and nephews...he's so great with them! He certainly knows how to make 'em all laugh!
We tried to jam a lot of fun in while we were all together....bbq's, shrimp boil, tennis, golfing, swimming, Just Dance on the Wii, and other silly games. I tried to take lots of pics....but sadly failed to get good ones of Justin. I know, terrible.

Craig and Sheri came down to visit before Owen and I headed back to Utah with my parents and Justin (to take him to the MTC). Sheri couldn't stand the thought of her grandson being only a few hours away and not being able to see him. Is it weird that mine and Brett's parents get along so well that Brett didn't even have to be there for them to come down?!? I LOVE IT! It feels like we are all just family. They stayed a night and we just all hung out, played games, and they got lots of play time with Owen.
