There's no place like home!

What a time we had last week in good ole' Santa Clara Utah! It's always so much fun to be in our home town. Here's a little recap of our trip...

SATURDAY: Time to head to Kenny's 15 year class reunion!

(above: Kenny & Erin, Josie & Ryan, Maritza & Myron, Angie & Heinz)

The reunion was so fun! It was great seeing so many friends again. We hung out with Ryan and Josie a lot before the reunion and had such a blast (thanks again for having us over guys!). The four of us also went to dinner with Myron and his wife and had so much fun making up for lost time. Loved it!

SUNDAY: Sunday was a special day for our family. Austin and Dayna are getting married in the St. George temple so Kenny ordained Austin as an Elder. We took a few family pics on our way out the door because it's so rare that we're ALL cleaned up at the same time!

Us with the happy couple...

I love this picture of my parents. Mom & Dad - you guys are lookin' good!

It was so fun to meet Dayna's family - they were all so darling! Austin is one lucky guy to be marrying into such a neat family. (We missed Car and her family and Dayna's oldest brother and his family)

MONDAY: On Labor Day Kenny and I took the girls to Parowan, Utah (population 2500) for a little taste of small town. Kenny's parents and my dad all grew up in Parowan and Kenny's grandma still lives there. They have a big Labor Day parade and fair every year and it was fun to be a part of the festivities. My girls had a blast and I loved seeing them do the things that I did growing up. Their cute Grandpa Rollins (Kenny's dad) gave them lots of rides on the 4 wheeler. Good times.











































Addie loved the parade...just not the loud fire engines! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Rollins for such a fun day!

A few more random pics from the week:

My mom bought the girls matching Fancy Nancy dresses - talk about a hit! Thanks grandma!

One last week of enjoying grandma's pool. Saying goodbye to summer...

You look so beautiful!! How fun to go back to Dixie High! I love that Kenny got to set apart Austin! I just love reading your blog!

Way cute photos - bet Kenny loved showing off his trophy wife at the reunion. Did you add an extra zero to Parowan's population? I thought it was 250 not 2500. Tell dad I said that. Gotta love those year-round Christmas lights. You should move back to Utah you know...no one does the small town thing better and what a great place to raise the little ones (que the guilt). Love you!

Bonnie said...

I agree with Car....move back to Utah! We do parades all the time!
We had such a fun week. I can't wait to get you all here for our October wedding...the girls will all look so darling in their little Flower Girl dresses.
It can't come fast enough for me.
Fun pictures!

Well, quite alright my dear Santa Claran! We shall hook up next time. Let's meet in Parowan Labor Day or Memorial Day, you choose. I had wondered whose parents were from Parowan and from what family. Mat's parents are both from there...the (Andrea) Adams and (the late Dan)Harris. Those Parowanianns have such a super glue bond connection that you guys are pratically my family 3X never removed.
I love reunions! Glad Dixie was fun. Reunions are even more fun when you look HOT.

I had NO idea you had a blog either! So glad you found me! I added you to my links too! (You'll find out I'm not so great at keeping up regular posts...sorry in advance). But just FYI, Erin...you're a hot babe!

Erin I went to high school with Maritza! What a small world. We were pretty good friends back in the day but then she got married soon after high school and I lost touch with her.
