Vacation Recap

I'm trying to remember everything that we did on vacation, it definitely went by too quickly, but it was amazing to just be home. Here is a run-down of what we did:

*Kyle and I flew out to Vegas on July 7th for a week to spend time with our families. It was amazing to see everyone! We spent the first few days with Kyle's family, which is always fun!! We hung out by the pool and just relaxed it was great. His mom made some great meals and we played boggle (which is always interesting when Kyle and his brother, Justin are involved).

*My sister, Lisa and I finally saw "Eclipse", I had promised her that I would wait until I got there to see it. We had a great time of eating junk food and enjoying a great movie. We had our cousin Jordan come along with us, it was a blast!! Lisa was nice enough to pay for me to get my hair cut and colored by a friend of hers, I desperately needed it!

*Kyle was able to go out with his brother and spend some quality time together, I know he really enjoyed it and I am glad he went!

*Sunday, we had a barbeque at Kyle's parents house. My dad, sister and niece came, but my mom wasn't feeling up to it (she made my dad go). We had a great time hanging out together and enjoying good food. That night we headed over to stay at my sisters. She lives right next door to my parents so it made seeing them easy. My mom had just gotten home from Arizona from her treatment and she wasn't feeling that great. We spent a lot of time with our niece Kylie, she is 3 going on 30 and is such a fun little girl.

*Spending time with my mom was such a blessing. Kyle and I pretty much kept her company all day, even if we just sat in silence it was amazing to just be with her. She is such a strong woman and it is so hard to me to watch her be so helpless. We of course encouraged her to take her pills and I believe at some point she told Kyle she would throw the vicks container and her cell phone at him haha.

* I never thought it was going to be so hard to leave. We said goodbye to everyone and of course shed some tears. I had the toughest time saying goodbye to Mom. I laid with her on the couch and just cried. I know she is in pain and it kills me. I promised my Dad that I would come back for Thanksgiving and that is a promise I won't break.

* Although we were sad to leave it is awesome to be back in our house. We got back this morning and took a long nap. We headed to Kyle's work to sign him back in after leave, boo!  It will be nice to get back into a routine.

Sorry for the long update, once I get my pics downloaded I will post a few from vacation!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful day!!
