Took a quick trip, now home safe.

I decided to take advantage of spring break and take the kids on a quick trip to see their grandparents in St. Johns. We left Monday morning, just me and the kids, and drove through Payson, stopped at my friend's house in Heber for a short visit, then continued on to our destination. We arrived in the late afternoon and immediately took advantage of the perfect weather - we played outside until dinner and then played some more until it got dark. Joe and Sam took right to putting with grandpa's spare golf clubs and balls in the backyard. Sarah played with her favorite cousin, Abby, on the swing set then inside, downstairs and back outside again. Mary spent a good deal of her time in the big swing in the backyard. I got to relax and visit. Except for the lack of sleep (Joe and Mary's fault), I had a great time and so did the kids. We came home on Wednesday and were happy to see Mike and sleep in our own beds. Two more days left of spring break and I am already worn out.
