A Tale of Two Cities

I'm so proud of myself.

It's Week 4 of my Sunday photos project and I am still going strong.  AND MY CHILDREN ARE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME STATE.

Chloe and I flew out to Utah on Tuesday to visit family.  This is my birthday gift from my parents this year.  You might remember that two years ago, Bria and I flew out to Utah for my birthday.  Except for the fact that I never actually blogged about that trip.  Sigh--just another thing to catch up on.

Anyway, Chloe and I are out here in Utah partying it up for another few days, and Joel is back in Michigan with the other two girls making sure they practice their violins and do their summer reading and make their beds.  He's also doing things like taking them to see the new Percy Jackson movie, so it isn't all bad.

He is also so on the ball, that he took a Sunday photo for me and texted it to me.

And I totally died from the cuteness.  And because I really miss my girlies, even though I'm having a wonderful time out here bonding with Chloe.  I mean, my mom is keeping us BUSY!  We've gone to City Creek twice and accomplished a lot of back to school shopping (have you heard about the abysmal shopping choices where I live?), we've played with lots of cousins, seen a dermatologist for Chloe's skin (we also have somewhat abysmal doctor choices--no dermatologist anyway)(she has vitiligo)(hopefully we can start fixing it now), seen some of Joel's family, gone horseback riding, gone Harley riding, seen Guys and Dolls, hiked to the "Y," gone to ComedySportz, and eaten out 8.3 times at places called Blue Lemon and Red Mango (Chloe and I are going to open a restaurant called the Purple Raspberry).

But, yeah, I still miss my other two girls.  And Joel, too!

Chloe and I decided to copy the Michiganders and take our own Sunday photo out here in Utah.

I bought her dress while we were at City Creek.  Isn't it so adorable?  And her perfect little rosebud lips match the lips on the dress perfectly. It's totally perfect for her.

Joel also managed to get Puccini in today's photo--he has the magic touch.

But I managed to get Mamah in the photo.

And then we were translated.

Happy Sunday!!!
