i'm sure that's what everyone was thinking when they saw us sit down to
wait in the terminal, and then get on the flight to st. george, but our little
stud muffin shocked and amazed them all. and they didn't hesitate to tell us.
yep, we flew to st. george. richard earned a big delta voucher about a year ago
when he volunteered to be bumped from a flight, and it was just about to expire
so we decided to use it to take marty cakes to meet the other half of our famdamily.
his first vacation was a big success, but also a big disappointment for us because
now we know what we're missing out on every time we drive to st. george: little
bags of peanuts and an hour-long trip.
we made a quick stop to visit sarah at work. i'm sure we were far less exciting than
the celebrities she met during sundance (hello, ron freaking swanson), but it was a fun
way to start our adventure.
the plane was small, but it did the trick.
even before take-off, marty was out like a light...
defying expectations of all our fellow travelers.
ty-mo picked us up, and we headed to get liz from work.
it was love at first sight, and they spent lots of quality time
getting to know each other that weekend.
the weather was soooo nice, so we took marty on his first trip to the park.
the actual sunlight was a little bright for his eyes that were used to being mostly
inside up to that point, but he was happy as a clam.
he had fun getting to know the smith boys, too.
scott says that marty inherited dale's earlobes.
eli is going to be a great cousin. our favorite thing from the whole
weekend was him saying, "hi marny!"
it was also fun watching marty and mary size each other up.
i'm sure they'll be great friends in no time.
it was a great weekend, and i think that we definitely made the most of it.
marty got lots of snuggles, and richard got to play lots of ping pong and
smash brothers. what more could my boys ask for?
before we knew it, we were on a plane headed back up north.
but we'll be seeing everyone again soon when they come up for our little
guy's blessing on easter weekend.
