Back From Vacay!

It’s amazing how quickly 2 weeks and a few days can go by! It seemed like every day was over before it began.

We stayed in Wyoming with my parents for a few days first. They have 2 llamas, 2 mini horses and 2 big horses and a bunch of sheep. And a few dogs and cats. Pierce was terrified of the horses at first, but eventually rode the minis and enjoyed them. They’re like dogs…just lovey and follow people around for attention 🙂  Paul and I plan on getting one next year hopefully.

Then we headed out to Utah to stay with one of my sisters. They have 4 cows (2 of which are pregnant), 4 sheep, 2 horses, a pony, chickens, a dog and a few cats. We stayed there almost a week, but it just felt like days. My nephew was baptized and we had a family picnic…lots of fun.

Our kids had so much fun with their cousins. Pierce really loved meeting his cousins, one in particular (she’s 6). She totally took care of him while we were with my sister. It was really cute. He liked all of them though…I asked him who was his favorite and he named all of them that he could think of 😀

My sister and I talked my bil into coming out here for Thanksgiving so we’re all really looking forward to that.

We decided to leave Gabby out there for a few more weeks, so when my parents bring her home, they’re also bringing a niece (she’s 2 years older than Gab) for awhile, too.

I have to say I’m happy to be home. I missed my friends here….so many are like family.

So good trip and we’re looking forward to doing it again in 2 years 🙂

  • What an amazing vacation you had. I sure could use one myself. I’ve always wanted to visit out west. I have a lot of family out in Colorado. I’ve only been once and that was to visit Vegas. Glad you’re back. You’ve been missed. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog. You’re awesome.

    P.S. Thanks for playing Farm Town with me. I’m so addicted to that silly game. LOL!


  • Welcome Back! All those animals! Sounds like fun. I’d love to see a mini horse sometime. Our vacation is coming in August. We always wait until later in the summer, it gives us something to look forward to. And the weather is always better on the Oregon coast later in the summer.

    Oh, that sounds like a BLAST! There is something about farm animals that the kids love. I guess it is something very out of the ordinary, so it makes it fun. Glad you had fun–I missed you and your posts!
