It has been 10 years since we have gone to visit Dave's family in Illinois, and at least 3 since Dave's parents have been able to come out here and visit us. In fact, we haven't seen Dave's youngest sister for 6 years.
Until this past weekend Dave's parents hadn't met Lea or Landon, and the last time they saw Elli she was a tiny baby.
That's really sad to me.
Hopefully Big Mama can change that a bit.........though it's still hard to drive across the country with such a large family!
Dave's mom was able to get time off of work to drive out here with Matt (coming back to school at BYU-I), and then she planned to fly back home after a week.

We had lots of fun making blankets, playing games, eating all the fondue leftovers, reading books, and just letting her see how we do things around here.
She's a really great woman and we all love her!
Everyone cried when she had to leave, and the kids moped around a bit for the rest of the day.
We've already started planning our trip out to Illinois this summer and we're so excited!!
