After our visit we headed home to have Easter dinner with the family. We had the traditional Ham dinner. The food was great and once again the weather was good enough to eat outside.
Since Grandpa Gaisford was at dinner we took the opportunity to get some pictures, including a four generation picture. When all of my sisters wanted to get a picture with him he said he felt like he was 19 years old again.
We finished the evening with a dessert get together at Tony and Nicole’s house. When I was growing up we would all get together at my Papa and Mita’s house for homemade donuts and apple juice. Over the years after my papa died we continued the tradition, but started changing the foods from donuts to salads or other desserts. It was fun to see extended family that I hadn’t seen in a few years along with those that I get to see more often.
This trip has been a good one. It was good to give my family a chance to see Drew. We gave my parents a web cam and also set up Skype on their computer so they could see him more often. My parents will be coming up to Utah in a few weeks for Drew’s blessing and my three sisters in Arizona will all be visiting at different times over the Summer months. We can’t wait.
The trip back to Utah started off early. Luckily the weather behaved for us and we made it in good time. Drew slept the whole way again. Both on the way to Arizona and on the way back were the most he has slept in the last few weeks. If things don’t get better we might be taking more car rides.
