First on the agenda was a few days with Brandon, Megan, and Turner. It was a fun visit and included things like Sushi, a visit to the Aquarium, and lunch at Bubba Gumps.
Turner enjoyed the creatures in the water, but his favorite was definitely the diver. He even had some one on one interaction with him as the diver asked Turner to point to his nose and his ear.
Touching the starfish was fun too.
Turner also asked if I would watch Trolls with him, and I happily agreed. I hadn't seen it before so it was new and exciting.
If someone were to ask if I would recommend the movie, I would have to say that I recommend watching it with a grandchild - that makes it most fun. :) I'm not sure how I would have felt about it if I were on my own. ;)
Grandchildren make most anything better :).
It was fun to hear the songs from that movie. Those songs were familiar, but were changed a bit from when I once knew them. :) And it was fun to hear some of the actors and actresses voices that seemed familiar.
Next on my trip was to go see Brayden, Tawny, Ethan, and Maddie perform in their dance recitals. The recitals were exciting to watch - they each performed wonderfully.
Then Brayden was ordained a Deacon in the Aaronic Priesthood. Twelve years old! My family is growing. I love them all! It was great to see Gregory and Adena and their family, and the home they recently moved to.
From there I went to visit Chase and Rebekah. We enjoyed our visit and went to watch a movie at the theater. But from here on out I didn't take any pics. :/
From there I went to visit BJo and Nate. BJo and I went to some antique stores. Chase and Rebekah came and my parents were in town visiting my brother and his wife, so we all went out to dinner and then went to Casper (where they make Fat Boys - they make and serve there a delicious soft and creamy black licorice ice-cream).
It was a new experience for me to travel alone to see my kids, but it was a good one. I'm sure I'll do it again some day. I did love getting home though.
