Poor Lilly waiting at the airport! She got bored on the airplane!

We went to Arizona during the 1st week of January for Uncle Mikes wedding  (Tyler's youngest bro.) I said and I quote," I Will never do that drive again, unless its to move down there." Needless to say, we flew and were safely back in Utah. But we had a great trip visiting with our families. We flew down early  Thursday morning.Flying is always an adventure, especially when you have three young children. So with three kids that means 3 extra suitcases, 3 car seats, a diaper bag packed full, and 2 adult suitcases and lets not forget the double stroller. Like I said its an adventure trying to get through security. but we did.
 Az was a beautiful 70 degrees and sunny the whole time we were there. We went to the park everyday, played outside, had ALL of our cousins there (almost all of them) had a wedding, and reception and I had to do some shopping while I was there.The kids played non stop with their cousins and grandparents. Its allot of fun to get together. Crazy but fun! I think when everyone gets together at the Atkin house it totals almost 30 people! Like I said, crazy, but fun!
 The wedding was held at their church . Tyler's dad married them. and the reception followed afterward. We're looking forward to a temple sealing this summer! The wedding and reception was beautiful. The bride and groom seemed very happy! It was just great to be with all of the family.We stayed at my parents house, where my children are always entertained 100% of the time. They LOVE  Skyler and Hunter. So all in all we had a great trip. It was hard to have to come home to 2 feet of snow in my drive way 600 miles away from our families..I hope someday we'll live close to family. I love them so much. Hopefully well see everyone soon.

How fun! Family, weddings and warmth! What more could a girl ask for? So awesome that you could go down there. I am dying to get back to Michigan. I miss home! But I guess that is Tylers home, but hey it beats freezing cold slush and snow and dirty cars!
