Preface- I should have added this on the first post about my vacation but I will have to add it later, anyway, to all of my family and friends that I got to visit, sorry if I didn’t put up a picture of you, I love you all very much but wanted to minimize on personal photos here. And also sorry if I was anything less than personable during out visits, going on a trip sans the hubs is super difficult for me, I lack the patients for single parenting. But seriously I was so happy see to every single one of you, I love you all and I am grateful for your love on me and my kids, they needed it cuz I probably wasn’t the nicest mom all of the time (insert super crazy face). Ok back to the excitement.
Day 15-Drive to Utah
I left my beloved Idaho and my family to drive to Cherry Hill Water Park in Utah. We met up with Ky’s family for a two day reunion. I love the Storey clan, like so much. I am so grateful for the family I married into, they are all so wonderful and have completely opened their hearts to me and our children. Kace closed down the entire park because he wanted to go on a solo ride in the lazy river with his little floaty.
Day 16- Drive to Bear Lake UT
Spend the day at the lake wave running, sand castle building, swimming, eating, playing water frisbee football, changing nasty poopy waterlogged baby diapers, you know the regular.
Day 17- Morgan Utah
We spent the night with Ky’s wonderful grandparents, I love them both so much! We went to Church and hung out with our friend Kendall and the family. Andie Bear got super sick. Stop reading if you don’t want the details but she had major vomit and diahrea.
(haha total awkward family photo moments)
Day 18- Ogden Utah, Logan Utah
Oh man I got to go to visit the Flowrider in Ogden. I used to work there and loved every minute of it, and pretty much go hooked. I did a 7-20 on my last go and I was pumped. We also went to the Burger Bar in Clearfield and went to visit Ky’s great aunt Bonnie. Got Farrs Ice cream then drove to Logan UT. The family went out to play while I stayed in the hotel with Andie and that little cutie pooped all over bathroom while I was getting a tub ready for her, yeah it was cool.
Day 19- Logan Utah
Weeellll gorey detail, I woke up sick like Andie was. But that day we were scheduled to go to Ky’s unlce’s to use his mega swing and rock climb. I totally had to try this swing because I was there and it was there, but it was sort of a bad idea because once I was like 20 feet in the air with 2 G’s of force pulling on my intestines, well I nearly pooped my pants, it was seriously so funny. And even though I felt soooo sick I did manage to do one climbing route. Later we drove to Morgan to say goodbye to grandma and grandpa and then drive to South Jordan UT
(right before I let out a huge fart and yelled “I’m gonna poop my pants!” Then I was laughing and trying to hold it all in, it was a close call I tell ya.
Day 20- South Jordan Utah
Sick sick sick, no fluids in and just lots of fluids out. It was the 24th of July and I did no celebrating.
Day 21- Drive to Iowa
Sick, thought I was going to die. I wrote the following text to my sister, seriously thought this was going to be last thing I ever wrote to anyone,
“Sorry I can’t call back, can’t talk soooo sick, throw up, diarrhea, three days. Need doc or hospital but on drive home sooo sick. You can tell everyone. I need prayers.”
I obviously didn’t have time to spell out “doctor” or “family” or add in other words but I sure could make sooooo take up a whole line.
Day 22- drive home
I was finally about myself enough to write back to my sister, “Sorry for the ominous text earlier I’m feeling well for now.” On the way home my brother-in-law stopped at some sketchy gas station in the ghetto of Cleavland, in our haste to get away he forgot to remove the gas pump and pulled it off the magnetic hold, then when he went to fix it he got hit up by a lady for some money. It was super intense.
(random rest stop where my bro-in-law did skate tricks at like 3 in the morning)
Day 23- Arrive home early morning, and my husband took over the kids while I slept for a bit!
