Catching Our Breaths

What have you done this last week? My family was here visiting this week. Besides the things mentioned on our list above, one or more of the members of our household have done the following:

toured the LDS Church History Museum, top to bottom
toured Temple Square (including the South and North Visitors Centers)
toured the Conference Center
visited Bridal Veil Falls (twice)
played at the Lehi City public pool (twice)
drove to Layton to visit family
watched Up in 3-D at the movie theater
attended a week-long writer's conference
won a drawing
2 baseball games
blew bubbles at Art Dye Park
got sick spinning at Discovery Park
attended a book signing in which I may or may not have been referred to as a BFF by a favorite author

It has been one of the busiest and most fun weeks in memory. This post probably should have a voice-over here saying:

This week has been made possible by the kind and forever fun-loving Helen Melzer.

Thanks, Mom for being you. Even if you did leave an unopened bottle of Organic, Raw, Apple Cider Vinegar in my fridge. I was sad to see you go, headed back for sunnier skies. It rained here again today (and yesterday). I am definitely rethinking my dream of living in the Pacific Northwest. I think Micah said it best, right after you drove away. 

"Mom, Grandma is like the jackpot."


  1. That is so sweet.
    What a crazy week! And you seem totally ok! That's amazing and awesome.

  2. Wow! Crazy week! I was in Las Vegas last week for a work conference. From Monday until Friday, I was running non-stop from 6:00 am to 12:00 am. I am still recovering. ;)

  3. That's funny because ever since I've been home, I've been telling myself I'd much rather be in Utah right now. Everything is SO beautiful there.

    Mom is cool. Hopefully she reads this. She'll love what Micah called her.

  4. I'm jealous that you were with Kiri & your mom - How fun! Who is the author?????

  5. Sad I missed out on the party. I want to hear more about your writer's workshop.

    Micah is awesome, so is mom, so are you.

  6. Talk about craziness at your place! I want to hear all about your conference and the signing. I am so jealous.

    Love the Micah quote. My kids feel the same way about their Nana.
