we went to Utah last weekend for Mikey's wedding. See how happy he looks? awwwww.

Britney looks slightly less so..
Just kidding! They both looked REALLY happy all night long, and it was so much fun to see them and celebrate with them. look at all these cute married guys! (oh, wait, except for Adam. Sorry Adam)
i made Nan pose with this eagle - even though we were all totally freezing to death and i had no good reason. hey, it was a cool eagle.
then we toured Temple Square. The boys were very impressed by the architecture. and they were impressed by the cold.
this may be my favorite picture. ever.
and this one is a picture of a bum on the street..... Oh! I mean, of Craig, who is taking a picture of the Harveys.
I have more pictures to download from Craig's computer. The Lindsays, who we stayed with (thank you SO much you guys) took some pictures for us when we forgot our camera one day. They also spent the weekend trying to convince us to move back to Utah. I told them to try again someday when it's not snowing and 40 degrees in MARCH. Yikes!

We've all come home with varying degrees of sick; but for the most part we're doing good and once again I have to say that I was overwhelmed with how well behaved our boys were on those 12 and 13 hour drives. *sniff* They are so good!

Connor and Elle (she rode most of the way with us to Utah) were properly impressed when I insisted that they look at this cool landform or that herd of animals. And we were all impressed when Craig hit a patch of snow and managed to keep us on the road instead of going into the ditch like the other 8 cars we saw. What a stud.

Also the Nintendo DS is possibly the greatest invention known to mankind. Or at least, to traveling-family-kind.

Wahaa. We missed you and were only a few miles away. I'm better for the most part, but now Seth is getting it. I'm not sure when this sick is going to leave our family. Maybe when we move back to Cali. :)

And thanks for teaching Elle what a Joshua tree is! She pointed them out on the way home.
