Weekend in Utah!

This past weekend Daniel and I drove with the boys to Ogden to visit our family there. We always have so much fun. Dennis and Tammy got us free passes to Lagoon. Luckily Patti was there visiting too so she watched Gabriel for us so Daniel and I could take the older boys to ride all of the rides.
CJ and Caleb did so great with the rides. We started them out on a few tame ones---and they got bored. So we tried the Bat. It was a roller coaster type ride that went pretty fast! I was a little nervous for the boys because neither of them wanted to ride next to me. They wanted to ride with Aunt Tammy or Jacob or Andrew, so when the ride was over I was fully prepared to give hugs and kisses and tell them we would stick to the carousel. HA! They didn't need me. They thought it was great! In fact, Tammy had offered to take the boys so Daniel and I could spend a few hours alone. I didn't want to, I wanted to be there with the boys to see how much fun they had. But they could have cared less whether I was there or not. It was kinda humbling. But it was fun! The boys are about an inch too short for several of the rides so I can't wait for next year when we can take them back and try a few new rides. I doubt they will care if I'm there to ride with them or not. At least I can take some pictures, right? Maybe Gabriel will be old enough for some rides and he will want me to hold his hand.
We always have so much fun when we go to Ogden. I have said it before but Dennis and Tammy make it so easy to stay with them. They let us take over pretty much their entire basement and they have tons of toys and video games for the kids to play with. Even if the boys get too rambunctious I know Dennis and Tammy can handle it--they had three boys themselves and then came Trini. They can handle it all!
And at Grandma and Grandpa Glover's we love it too. The boys can play and Grandma usually gives me a new book or a doll that she made or something special from one of her many collections. I love the fact that when she sees something she thinks of me and wants me to have it.
I really have to thank the Mercado and Glover Families. From the very moment I met them, before Daniel and I were married, they openly and completely welcomed me and my boys into their family. There was never any hesitation or awkwardness, they loved me and CJ and Caleb right away. I honestly can't put into words how grateful I am to them all. Patti, Roy, Victoria, Reid, Bette, Dennis, Tammy, Matthew, Andrew, Jacob, Trini, and the rest of the Glover family. Thank you so much for making us a part of you. And helping us make so many wonderful memories.
