time flys

it's been so long i don't even know what to say.

so i'll just show you the pictures i obviously thought were important enough to take in the first place.

*this might be a long one*












october 3 we jetted off to salt lake city, stayed with some of dennis' mission companions, did way too much shopping, took in general conference,  went to his mission reunion, and just enjoyed being together. 




next, we flew to a much warmer climate, pheonix az! it was both of our first time therem and we loved it! definitely going back in the future. we stayed at an awesome hotel, with an amazing pool, and that is where we parked our butts for three days. 








i was super nervous for what flying with a baby in tow would be like, but honestly it was a breeze. we did our best to plan our flights around times that our little willy would naturally be sleeping, which was a life saver! he slept for the most part of all three flights, and even when he was awake he loved looking back at all the new faces. we definitely learned a lot for future reference, but i think it was a pretty successful first go at it. 




we loved having our first getaway as a family, but we really are happy to be home and back into the routine of life again.

aaaaaaaaaaand we're off!

we are currently sitting in our living room waiting for dennis's dad to arrive and ship us off to the airport!

let it be known that we super chocked about this whole "government shutdown", it has totally ruined our plans to visit the grand canyon while in arizona. actually it's the whole reason we decided to make a pit stop in the desert to begin with.

let it also be known that i get huge traveler's anxiety the moments before walking out the door and committing to the things i have packed. so here i am, worrying about everything that can go wrong. dennis is sitting on the other couch on his phone, and suddenly lets out a "CRAP!" i, of course, am freaking out that he got some email like all of america decided to just shut down. i am now in a panic asking what! what! what!?????

and in natural dennis fashion, it takes him a few seconds to register and respond.

and this is what he says...

"one of the teams i picked lost last night"

lovely....


please, please, please wish us luck
