Utah 2010

Way back when, we planned a family vacation to visit KC & Jodi and Tim & Barbara in Utah.  I would come from FL and Mom, Dad, Katie and Tom would come from CT.  Tickets were booked and plans were being made.  After Mom died we decided that we should still do it.  She would want us to.  It would be good for all of us to be together again. 

So we did.  And it was good.  Really good.

We stayed in places with amazing views


and spent some good quality time together
We went on many hikes through the beautiful mountains

And stayed at a quaint little cabin…

that looked out over this. 

We spent hours around the campfire before bed 

And woke up to these guys drinking from the river

We found our family name

In more than one place

And hiked to one of Mom’s favorite places 

Where we laughed…
and cried…
and told her how much we missed her

It was beautiful
And exactly what my heart and soul needed
