Quick Trip to Utah

Jaime and I did a quick trip to Utah last weekend. We had a great time.

We had a wonderful Mother's Day dinner at our home. All of our daughters and daughters-in-law are mothers now, so the men did the dinner...all of it. They each had an assignment, and they all came through. It was so good that we are thinking we should do our monthly family dinner this way every other month!

Josh's Prom

Josh and his very cute date, Brooke.

Some of the parents did a dinner for our kids going to prom, held in an amazing back yard. I was in charge of decorating tables. A talented friend, Brit, made beautiful place mats with the couple's names on them. We had a total of 22 kids.

I have to tell you what we discovered when we got to Alpine. Josh went to pull down the covers on one of the twin beds and found this... The mice had gotten into the wheat in the food storage and had very neatly placed it in that bed as if someone had carefully gotten a large cup full and poured it in a line below the pillow. It was so funny that we had to take pictures, then Josh pulled all the bedding off and washed it. We disposed of the plastic wheat containers that had holes chewed into them. In my mind I picture the little mice from 'Cinderella' carefully going back and forth with their mouths full of that wheat and carefully depositing it in place. These cute little critters have their own favorite places to keep warm and eat. We did find two dead mice, it's almost sad, but really, if they were house trained I wouldn't mind having them scurry around....well, maybe not.
