So we made it here safe. We left Utah at 4:30 a.m. (it always takes a little bit longer to get the 6 kids all buckled and ready than we think it will). It was a great day. The kids were so good. We stoped only three times the whole day (not including once for Jack to pee on the side of the road). The kids didn't sleep much but they didn't cry either. I was surprised. I always am. Cali and I are road warriors. It is hard to be raised by my parents and not be. I love an open road and gas station stops. It was a great day.
We pulled into Moses around 4:15. I always get a nervouse feeling when I drive in. I love this little town. We came over to my Grandparents house for swimming in the evening. (all of the uncles were over painting my grandma's fence...what did I say before...great family!) Right when we got there Tyson jumped off the diving board and started to drown. I was right there and I started screaming for my cousin Ryan. He dove in all baywatch style (I am not kidding it was one of the coolest, bravest things ever) and saved Tyson. I almost started crying. Drowning...as most know is a sensitive subject for me. Ryan was fully dressed. I love him. I really do. I have so many great memories of him and he still to this day is always so nice to me.
Needless to say...I am so tired. I am so happy to be here. My happy place. I will post more later.
