Williams 50th Anniversary in Rexburg, Idaho & our few days in SLC

See more pictures on Facebook or ask me to send you the Kodak Gallery for more Williams Family photos.

We had an amazing time visiting Idaho and Utah for our short trip.
Hanna has had way too much fun at this point and is getting very tired.Most of the Williams' Family.
Hayden almost always is smiling. He even was about to drop from all the fun with family.Hanna thought this was the best part of the trip aside from winning $240 from guessing the correct amount of change in the family coin jar.
We visited 3 temples in just a few days. Rexburg, Idaho temple trip.
Salt Lake Temple where Hanna burst out singing "I am a Child of God" in the visitor center.
Hayden and Hanna were the best lil travelers I could have prayed for. Even when I braved the 5 & 1/2 hr flight back alone while Scott flew off to San Fran for work, they did wonderful.

Seattle surprise birthday get away

No doubt I am spoiled. I had the best birthday surprise of my life. My sweet mother, together with my sweet Scott, arranged a surprise birthday getaway. I had no idea when my mom rang the doorbell that she was flying in for a visit. I thought that was the last of it when Scott told me to pack my bags, we were leaving for a 4 day trip without the kids and that my mom flew in to take care of them.

Seattle is one of my all time favorite cities. Here we are on our way to Bainbridge Island. Ironically, I saw a longtime Montana friend Tiffany Hancock, who I hadn't seen in 15 years, visiting that same island for a weekday lunch. It was awesome!
View from Bainbridge Island.On my birthday, I got to eat lunch with another longtime friend, Heidi Stumpff, and catch up on all our lives since we both had babies. Good luck Heidi on your half marathon in Chicago! It was a great day.

Deadliest catch.Flower market is always my favorite.
The best birthday dinner at Elliots.
Japanese Gardens.
View from Seattle Market where you could see Mt. Rainier perfectly. Perfect weather the whole time. Whoever said it always rains in Seattle just doesn't want you to know how beautiful it is there.

The trip was wonderful with fresh flowers, delicious food and an amazing husband.
Best of all, the kids were safe and happy at home thanks to my wonderfully thoughtful momma.
