|University of Virginia football stadium|
After the rain, the weather was perfect. Lucy was snuggled in the Baby Bjourn and was very content. After seven hours of BYU football (due to the delay) the Cougars ended up losing a game which should have been easily won.
In September I had the opportunity to go home for about 2 1/2 weeks to visit my family in Utah. Johnny had to stay in West Virginia and keep doing rotations at the hospital. It was Lucy's first time flying and she did wonderfully. She mostly slept, but cried a little with the air pressure change. We had a three hour lay-over in Chicago, which made our travel time almost 7 hours. Upon arriving to Salt Lake, Lizzy, my sis, picked us up. Traveling is really hard on children. There is a two hour time difference between West Virginia so Lucy fell asleep about 6pm and woke up the next morning with a terrible cold.
Besides her little cold, everyone was excited to meet Ms. Lucy. My mom was the only one in my family to have met her, so needless to say everyone wanted to hold her.
We were able to attend my cousins wedding dinner and ceremony the following day. It was wonderful seeing all my extended family. Lucy had the chance to meet several of my friends with quite a few lunch dates.
I had made a list of the delicious restaurants I wanted to visit while in Utah. Zupas was on the list, so I ate there with my Murray girlfriends. I also had to get Nielson's Frozen yogurt with Aubri. And of course Cafe Rio was a stop that I needed to make. Sarah, my sister was recently spin certified, so I had a private spin class with her and Lizzy.
Lucy and Esther are 10 weeks apart. It was the first time they met and I think are going to be best friends. Luckily, for me, I have a sister I adore so our girls with hopefully be just as close.
Lucy got to meet her great-grandparents in Ogden. It was a delightful afternoon of just talking and watching our little girls play.
The last weekend in Utah was spend down in St. George. Lucy and I were so excited to see John because it had been two whole weeks without him. He rode down with Taylor and Lizzie. My sister Sarah drove me down. The following morning at 4am, we caught the buses up Snow Canyon. The wind at the top of the canyon was biting. We stood around bonfires waiting for the beginning of the race to happen. John and Ben took off running about 7 minute miles. I just wanted to finish the race (since my training was not the best due to just having had a baby).
