By best friends put together a girls night before I left. It was perfect, we had pedicures, shopped at Gateway, went to dinner at Spaghetti Factory, and talked forever in the car. I love my friend so much. I am so thankful to have them in my life, and I am going to miss them. Thanks again girls.
Josh has his fini flight at Hill a few days before we left. It was on a Saturday so not many guys were there. He was just happy to have one. The bad thing about the flight was his landing gear was stuck so he had to fly around in circles and burn off some gas before he could land. Doesn't sound like too much fun, for a last flight in Utah. After he landed, it's tradition to squirt the pilot down with champagne, but since we don't drink we used water and sparkling cider. A bit stickier than champagne, but it was still fun. Olivia was a little nervous when she saw what we were doing to Daddy. We are so proud of you Josh and all your accomplishments!
We decided to move in with my Dad and Evelyn for our last week in Utah, since our house was on its way to South Carolina. It was so nice for Olivia to be with Grandpa everyday. I'm sure my Dad was happy to finally have some peace and quiet, but we really enjoyed staying there with them. Chester and Olivia became good friends. Everyday Olivia signs dog, asking for Chester. It's so sad to be so far away from our families. We know this is where we are supposed to be, it just takes a while to feel like its home.
We took a trip to Disneyland with my family. We rented a house 2 blocks away from Disneyland. We would just walk there because it was so close. This house was perfect, it had a swimming pool, hotub, playhouse, pool table, swingset and so much more. We went to Disneyland 3 days, and Sea World for 1. Olivia loved both places. Her favorite ride at Disneyland by far was "It's a Small World." At Sea World she loved the Orca whales (Shamu). It was so nice to be together as a family before we left to South Carolina. I will treasure our memories, especially now that we are so far away.
