A long, but fun, Sunday

I got a call on Saturday night from my mom asking if I had called my sister yet. We had mentioned that we might go to Bend on Sunday, but had kind of decided against it, but I hadn't let me sister know. My mom continued to tell me that NO ONE was going to Bend for my nephew's big day. I hung up the phone and talked with Mike about it and decided that we could go. I drove into Portland to pick up my mom so she could go with us. We woke up early on Sunday morning and got all the kids ready for church, then headed out for the 3 hour drive to my sister's house and her church. We arrived with about 15 minutes to spare. It was really nice to enjoy a sacrament service with my husband at my side. The 2 babies have only had the opportunity to sit with him on a handful of occasions in their short lives. I was just grateful to have some help!

After church we went back to my sister's house and made lunch. All the cousins played. They had a blast. And I only heard "I'm bored" a couple times, so that's good! We drove back home and I took my mom to her place. We were able to have a very nice conversation on the drive. So, even though it was a stressful last minute trip, we need to do it more often!
