I know, I suck at having a blog lately. Life has been busy around these parts.
First and foremost, my son came home from Afghanistan! Thank god, I can rest again. He seems to be doing very well. He lost a lot of weight but I'm sure with his wife's good cooking he'll get some meat on his bones again.
The weekend after he returned Ashley's mom came for a visit. Now usually these trips are quite stressful for me and Ash but seriously this was an amazing visit. No tension, no stress, we really had a good time. We cooked and laughed and ate and shopped and talked and just had fun. The last time her family was here was really hard for me as I was disregarded and treated like the cook and housekeeper so I was unsure how this trip would go but I was happily surprised. I think my post on FB thanking my family for how amazingly they accepted Ashley and the way they love her opened her eyes.
The next weekend was Pride!!! We had so much fun. You would think Utah wouldn't have such a great Pride but we do. The Pride parade is the 2nd largest parade in Utah! On Sunday after the parade I read that there were 30,000 people at the festival. I made Emma's shirt for Pride, the front says I love my Ma & Momma and the back says All Families Matter with a cute rainbow. We got many many compliments on it.
