We were just able to spend some time in Michigan with my family. For some reason I had a very hard time leaving, I always do, but more so this time. We had such a fun fun time, so fun that I left there secretly wishing I could move back, OK, it really wasn't a secret. While there my sister Heather was able to get married in Traverse City. It was small and quick, but very nice. My parent have a house on the water in Traverse City, and thats where we stayed and it is right on the water. I have not been there since I have moved to Utah. It was so much fun. The girls had fun playing on the beach and just watching the water. Tyler loved swimming with my brother Engin. That same weekend was the Cherry Festival, so one of the nights we were able to watch the fire works over the water while sitting on the dock. We had the best seats in town. Another highlight of the trip was my niece Grace.(Pictures of her to come.) She is such a sweet happy baby. She is 8 monthes old. She watched everything my girls did. I got pretty attached to her while there. Maybe she is the reason it was so hard to come back to Utah. She has the biggest cheeks with the cutest dimples and big blue eyes. She is a spitting image of my sister. My cute brothers Jengiz and Engin turned 16 and 14 while we were there. They are getting so old. I am sad to say that Engin BEAT me in CLUE again. You just wait until next time. I was able to visit with my Grandma and Grandpa Thomas and my Grandma and Grandpa Kaiser. My Aunt Kathy and Uncle Drake took us out to dinner along with there kids. I was also able to take my kids to see their Great Great Grandma. We had a 5 generation pictures done. She is so sweet. It is always special to me to have my kids visit her.
It was a wonderful wonderful time. I did not get to see everyone I wanted to see, and I apologize for that. I miss everyone so much, and can't wait to get back again. I think we will be driving next time and if we do fly, the doctor will have to give us a heavy sedative for Adison. She was absolutely horrible on the flights, to the point that I was in tears. Everyone knew what color binky she had, she had that thing flying rows ahead of us.
Anyways, I will be posting more pictures soon. Some including my step-dad, grandparents, and siblings. I miss you all.

It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.

Family Fun!!!

Last weekend we had such a fun time with the whole Olson clan. It all started on Friday when Tylers cute little sister Amy recieved her long awaited mission call. We were all so excited for her, and very anxious to see where she was going. Before she opened it we all made our predictions of where she would be sent, a few came close, but nobody guessed the exact location. She has been called to the Sacramento, California mission english speaking. We are all so excited for her and so so proud of her. She is such a great example to my little girls, especially Avery, who now wants to be a missionary when she grows up. By the way, Avery guessed that she would be sent to Hawaii or Michigan. She will enter the MTC on October 1. She will do great.
On Saturday we all went to Bridal Veil falls. It was beautiful and the kids had such a fun time playing in the falls. We then went swimming in an actual pool. The adults then snuck out for some yummy icecream at Cold Stone. Then Sunday we hurried over to have a yummy BBQ lunch before they all headed back to St.George. Mike and Janille ended up staying longer that day and the kids had a blast playing. They were extremely worn out from there fun weekend. I think all the adults were to. We love weekends like that though, when the family is all together.
Poor Avery has been sick since Sunday, so the weekend really wore her out. Thanks again everyone for the fun weekend. We miss you all so much.
One more thing, Tylers sister Kristen is expecting her 2nd baby in January. We are so excited for her. Congrats Kevin and Kristen.
