Kaden had his first day of nursery, he did pretty good. When I left he didn't even notice that I was gone. We checked on him a few times and he was sitting in sister Hanna's lap. Which is an indicator that he was probably having a hard time. When Adam picked him up they said he did good, he threw a fit however when they took some crayons away from him, Which is no surprise to me since I deal with that sort of thing on a daily basis! The bishop came in and was holding him for a little bit and when Bishop Hanna left kaden was very upset! Kaden is so funny because the second we get to church and go to sit down kaden will keep walking up to the stand where the bishop is and wants him to hold him, then eventually he will bring kaden to us and kaden will get right back down and go back up there again. I just love my little guy, he is so much fun! He has been learning so much, he is talking a lot more now and is stringing more words together I have heard him say at least fifty words, each day he says new words I write them down in his journal, his new word today was mole, because he saw the mole on my face. That's all for now, until next time.

Kaden kept kicking his blankets off, we were worried he would get too cold so adam put him in
his sleeping bag, and I had kenidi in mine.
After the reunion we drove to my grandmothers house in Manti, Utah. The plan was to go to the Momon Miracle Pagent, but we were so tired and decided to go to bed instead!
The next day was fathers day, I wanted to make Adam some german pancakes but we didn't have the things we needed and didn't want to burden my grandma so we decided to go out to eat at this little resturant on Main street. It felt weird going out to eat on sunday, my mothers coin phrase is " The ox is in the mire"!
I was so excited to meet Andrea, my soon to be sister in law. She is such a sweetheart!!
After breakfast We visited my grandfathers grave . It is a little over nine years now since he died.
I love, Love, Love, this picture!! This is the temple that Adam and I recieved our endownments in. This is a special temple beacuse it means a lot to my family, I had ancestors who helped in building a beautiful, ornate staircase inside. My grandfather Frank Wanlass was also a temple sealer for over thirty years. My grandmother was able to do temple work there as well.
After visiting my grandfathers grave we drove to Salt lake City, we first checked into our hotel and then we rode the light rail through down town Salt Lake. I was so nervous that the kids might pick up the swine flu since it has been so rampent in Utah so I made kenidi fold her arms. We picked up lunch, and then took it with us to the temple. Once we finished eating we went inside the visitors center and looked around for a while.
The kids had a lot of fun playing on the temple grounds. I think they were dieing to just streatch their legs and run free since they had been so couped up in the car! Kaden was ready to jump in, he is so fearless! As you can tell by the picture I was not having very much fun!
The next day was monday and we decided that while we were still in salt lake we might as well go visit the family history center. We saw alot of interesting things, like a replica of the printing press and some of the origianl Books of Mormon! I was so excited to find some original letters that my Fifth Great Grandfather Joseph Night Sr. Had written to the prophet Joseph Smith.
After visiting the family history center, we went to Idaho Falls to visit Karalee and their family. Their kids are so cute and so respectful. We went on a double date with karalee and Sam. We went out to eat and then to the driving range. Then the next Day Karelee's kids wanted to make their own Olympics. They had an egg race, slip and slide, swiming pool, and blew up water baloons. Alexia made a pinyada.Sheand I worked on finding something to hang it with. Then they invited their neighbor friends over to play. We had a great visit with them!
We left Karalee's Tuesday afternoon and went to visit Holly and her family. We had a Barbaque and got to look at their farm. Kenidi and Elijah really bonded he was so sweet to her.
After dinner we got to ride their horse. Someday I will have a horse!
I love this picture of Kaden he is such a little heart throb!
The next day we went on a hike, Here is a picture of Moroni carrying kenidi
Cute Little cowgirl
Next we visited Kristy and Mike Jorgensen in Roosevelt, Utah. We got there pretty late it was almost midnight. Then the next day we went to the rec center in Vernal. After that we went to Walmart to get kacey a birthday gift. I was very suprised to see Daniel there we didn't think we would see him on our trip. When I saw him walk around the asile I just couldn't help but jump on him!
Kristy is so talented, she made this beautiful cake for Kacey's Birthday!
Kenidi and Kacey were instant frineds they played so well together!
Uncle Dan and Kaden chillen
Grandpa steimle gave the two girls a stuffed animal, Kenidi got a beaver and Kacey got a wolf.
We left kristy's on friday the 26th and stopped in colorado that night, and then continued our drive back home we got home saturday evening at 7 pm. It was a fun trip, I still can't believe how much we did in that amount of time especially considering we drove for almost five days of that! I was bummed that we didn't get a chance to do a session at the Temple ,I hoped we could go for our anniversary, but oh well we will have many more opportunities. Altogther we drove more than 48 hours!! I was happy to be back though and to sleep in my own bed, I still don't think I have caught up on the sleep that I missed but that's okay cuz it was all worth it!
