Bryce canyon

My parent’s are seriously the GREATEST parents & grandparents!!

A couple weeks ago my dad called me. The conversation went like this:

Dad: Hey, what are you guys doing this weekend?

ME: Ummm… (trying to run through my calendar in my head)…nothing… I don’t… think. (I say kinda slow).

DAD: Well, let me just ask you this. Can we steal Eli for the weekend?

ME:YES!!!! YES!! I mean, I guess…but why?

DAD: Your mom and I are going down to Bryce Canyon from Thursday to Monday, and we wanted to take Eli with us.

ME: Do you guys hate yourselves? I mean, Sure, dad. That sounds like so much fun! But you do realize I have two kids right? Are you sure you don’t want to take the other one too? (Yes, I know I was being greedy).

DAD: Yeah. I am sure we don’t want to take her. Just Eli will be good.

HAHA! I at least had to try!

Let’s just say that was one of the best phone calls I have had in awhile! I LOVE Eli to death, but a 4 day break is nice once in awhile. I think I packed his bag as soon as I got off the phone, and he didn’t even leave for another 4 days!


Eli had so much fun!! But who wouldn’t? (besides my parents of course. :)) He was spoiled rotten, watched movies, rode on the snowmobile, played in the snow, did crafts, played games, played with his cousin, given 100% of their attention, and didn’t have his mom constantly yelling at him!


We had fun too. It was kind of nice only having one kid. I forgot how much easier that is. But believe me, by Sunday night I was ready for my Eli to come home. I missed that kid! He is my buddy and my sidekick. Our house was too quiet and I had no questions to answer.



Thanks mom and dad. Eli loved making the memories and Ryan loved having a little break.

That's nice to get a break. And yes I ordered your hoodie and like I told Britt it doesn't say KUWAIT on there, I tried but we couldn't find any place where it looked good. And yes I can get packages takes about two weeks. Tell the family hi.

I dont think I said, "ya I am sure we dont want to take her" I think it was like " no not at this time, maybe next time"
It was a great time and we really enjoyed it

How fun for Eli! ....AND for you and Ryan. ;o) Absence always makes the heart grow fonder, huh? I am always dying for a break, and then missing my kids like crazy. I'm a weirdo. :o)

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
