My 10 days in Utah -


My 10 days in Utah were a lot of fun - starting out with a beautiful Sunday afternoon drive thru the canyon - gorgeous colors -


Then the kids opened presents just for them to take to the hospital the next day -

They were excited - can you tell?
The next morning was REALLY exciting as Michele went into labor as she was getting prepped for her C-section.  Rowen was a beautiful baby . . .


her brother and sister were excited to meet her -


So cute!

The first few days I kept the kids busy at home and made visits to the hospital -


Once Rowen and Michele came home the main goal was to keep Boston and Naomi off of Michele's recovering tummy and off of the baby.  We went on exploring walks to give Mom time alone with the baby, rode go-carts, had a dance party (wish I had videos of that) and learned Halloween songs and played with my I-phone (Naomi loves that I-phone!) and gave Rowen her first bath. 
 It was non-stop action.






Usually I take literally hundreds of pictures - and some turn out.  Not anywhere close this time.  It was a full time job keeping Boston and Naomi busy and Rowen safe and sound :)

I got a few pictures of the kids that I loved their expressions -




Luckily Michele had someone wonderful lined up to take adorable pictures so there was no pressure.
She got shots like these . . . 






Thanks for sharing this wonderful time in your lives with me.  It was the best!

our kids are lucky to have such a wonderful (and helpful!) grandma :) Shel wouldn't have survived without you :)

thanks for the vote of confidence tif, but it's true mom. we wouldn't have made it. and I wouldn't have a single photo of my kids other than the ones Jen took, and Boss and Naomi probably would have run away from home. we are so thankful you came and spent the time with us. love you.

Shel, I had confidence in you. It was John I was worried about...

You make being a grandma look fun. But I couldn't help thinking it requires a lot of energy when I was reading your first post! I can't believe how much Rob and Stacie's girls have grown. They were just toddles when we left Concord and now they must be getting close to Primary graduation, right? Very cute family pictures!

I started to dive in to this topic all-around 2003, and got distressing experiences back then, squandering a lot of time for nothing. I stopped when I did not fully grasp much about it having myself buried inside other things. Now I am back again. Your blog post is a great motivation to me and I will probably let my granddad know about this.
