More vacation

The first Sunday we were in Utah we went to church with Kendall's family and they enjoyed showing off all of the grandkids. The second Sunday we were there we went back to our old American Fork ward and enjoyed seeing some of our old friends who hadn't moved. We only stayed for sacrament meeting, just in case we still had any kind of germs that we didn't want to send to nursery.

That night we got together with our good ol' dinner group buddies! We used to get together once a month for a dinner party and everyone would bring a part of the meal. They all still have the group, but they did a special one while we were there so that it would be like old times. We took a group picture, and boy have we changed!
The guys:
And the ladies:
And notice 3 on the way: (actually, Martha has already had her little one, CONGRATS!)
I had to totally laugh because Debbie was able to round up 6 high chairs and booster seats for the kids, complete with bibs and sippy cups!! Haha. When we first started this group Avri was the only child coming. Talmage was "still cooking" as Kendall would put it and nobody else had any kids. Because they weren't used to kids there was never a place for Avri to sit and I was always so worried about her bothering the other adults. Now look at them!
Now that is a bunch of cute kids!
Monday the 8th was Talmage's half birthday. We don't usually celebrate half birthdays, but Talmage was in desperate need of some new clothes and I couldn't wait until December, so we had an "unbirthday party" just like on Alice in Wonderland. Grandma Kim spoiled the kids and they all got a couple of packages to open with new clothes, toys and books. You can see how exciting this was!


We couldn't get them to sit still the rest of the night!

The next day I met up with a bunch of girls from high school. A friend of mine from the east coast just happened to be back in Utah at the same time with her kids, so we got together to let the kids play. Four of the six of us were expecting, and I was proud to say that I was not one of them. ;) Two of them have already had their babies! (Yay for all of the babies and proud new mommies and daddies!!)
We had to get a picture of all of the kids that the six of us have produced since high school. It sure doesn't feel like it's been that long, but this shows otherwise!
It was so much fun to be able to see everyone and get reacquainted!

I'm sad I missed the park. I wish I could have been there. But it didn't work out. You all look so cute! I didn't even know Marci was expecting!! Your hair looks really cute by the way!! I like it!
