and a few other things we managed to do and save for.
This got us thinking...Hmmm??? What can GapGirl's family do with next years return? We have accomplished so much. We purchased many big items, whats left? We sat around the table and it suddenly hit us!!! UTAH!! WE CAN VISIT OUR FAMILY IN UTAH!!!
Jason jumped on the computer and checked out airline tickets. After I regained consciousness from the astronomical price of SEVEN airline tickets, we came to the conclusion it would be worth it!!! How exciting to pack up the kids, run thru airports and see family for a while.
Our imaginations were wild. Our kids were older and so much more portable... oh the fun we could have!! We could show them the great Salt lake, the Rocky Mountains, Perhaps Idaho or even Yellowstone National Park...(only 5 hours away) dig for dinosaur fossils, see Buffalo and have a great time with family.
"Its not a definite..." my husband kept saying. He is right, our big black van is getting old and very high in miles. We need to save up for a van, but I can see the gleam in his eyes....He would love to see his brother, his sister-in-law and that darling nephew. There are many issues to work out, after all I do have 5 kids to plan for and ALOT of saving to do...plus the car issue,sleeping,and all that jazz. Oh, and most importantly...I can't forget to ask my brother-in-law and Sister-in-law if it would be ok if we came next year and stayed with them ;)
....Krissy, do you think you would mind??? Hee hee. Its a good thing they do love us and read my blog as well....
Its just a passing thought, a very good passing thought and with a lot of hard work, prayer and planning I'm sure I can convince the mister its a must AND make it happen.
Can you picture it??...GapGirl out in the wilderness... This calls for a new outfit! Something woods-y of coarse.... Watch out Utah.... We are coming!!!!!..... maybe....
