Recap Of The Last 3 Days

On Monday mid morning we (the 4 kiddos and myself ) went to Pinetop. Alan was bringing up Mom Nichols on Tuesday. We had a fun drive with laughter, music and a lot of talking.
As we were driving up, for those who know Arizona we got to Christopher Creek and a hail storm hit. It was great to hit this weather. Dallas stuck his head out the window and got pelted.
We reached the cabin where we use to live at around 4. We went to our old neighbors house to visit with them and ended up staying till 7:30. We then drove to Taylor and stayed at my brothers house that he is in the process of selling. It was empty no furniture and wood floors throughout just waiting for kiddos with socks on their feet to slide, laugh and scream. What fun they had. Then they were playing hide and seek in the rooms. We didn't get to bed till after 12 and I was beat.  
Tuesday morning I got up early to go to the Temple. It was a wonderful day with friends and family. And I am so happy to announce that Kyle, Coco and Talmage are sealed as a family for all time and eternity.
and the prince and one more of the family
I couldn't get the Angel Maroni in the picture.
After this we all went to a little Mexican restaurant . When everyone finished eating we all went on our merry way. E'lyse went home with Mom Nichols and Alan since she had to leave for girls camp on Wednesday and the other 4 kiddos talked me into staying up one more day.
I just love it up in the white mountains the beauty is breathtaking and the weather is wonderful.
The kiddos and I ended up going back to the cabin and doing a load of wash, we did a little shopping at the dollar store too. While our wash was drying we went to Woodland Lake for a walk. They have a great trail.
These are American Coot The little spots are the babies. So cute! Went back to the cabin to get the wash and the girls played for a while
When we lived up here the kiddos spent most of the days outside on the swing or in the tree house. They miss this place too!
We then went to my brothers house . Great family to just sit around and talk with.
We ended up leaving way too late and went back to their other house. Everyone was tired so we got showers and went to bed. We left to go home in the morning. The kiddos were all still really tired and not so excited about coming down to the heat but we made it home. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

What a great day you had. I never did make it up to see the Snow Flake temple before we left. It is really pretty. I'm happy for your family.
