Meet Me In Denver . . .

We had a wild and CRAZY weekend. So Casey was gone all week to Virginia for work. I flew out Friday afternoon to go to a WONDERFUL dance conference in Denver. Well, he had a layover in Denver at 7:30 pm and guess what time my flight got in to Denver?? 7:30 pm! So we planned to meet and have dinner since we hadn't seen each other ALL week. Then he would be on his way home to take care of the kids for the weekend. Of course just when you think you have things all worked out, nope, not gonna' happen! I felt so bad for Casey. His plane boarded and then SAT on the tarmac for 3 hours, yes THREE hours and he happened to be in between two very large people. I think he almost had a nervous breakdown.

Things went a little crazy. I was in Denver worried sick and so frustrated because I had a babysitter at home and Casey was suppose to relieve her when he got home. Well, guess what - he missed his flight to SLC and now there were NO MORE flights to SLC that night. Luckily I had a college age sitter (SAVED US! - THANKS HILARY!). So I was in my hotel in Denver and Casey stayed the night at a hotel by the airport IN DENVER. We still didn't get to see each other. He was home FINALLY by 10 am and got to take Zach straight to his football game. His first football game. What a great little football player our Zach is! Can't wait to cheer him on next Saturday!!!

Poor Casey. He worked so hard all week and didn't get much sleep and was just DONE!! He was so happy to be home. He is such a wonderful husband and Dad! He needed to just come home and put his feet up. But he came home to a broken kitchen faucet, four kids that were soooo glad to see him and ended up staying over to the stake center Saturday night until 3 am helping get the temple dedication ready to be broadcast. HONESTLY! LEAVE MY POOR HUSBAND ALONE! I flew in last night and was home around 9:45 pm and he was sound asleep on the couch.

Hopefully, this week will be a little calmer! Thanks for all you do Casey. You are the best!

Did I mention how WONDERFUL my conference was? It was just what I needed. Very profound stuff . . . Not much actual dancing, just a lot of child psychology and classroom management. AMAZING! If you want to learn more

The psychologist they had there . . .Love her! I want her to be MY therapist. She was amazing. Actually I want her to move in to help me figure out how to raise these kids!

Have a wonderful Monday!


  1. That is seriously the craziest series of unfortunate events. I can't believe he sat on a plane for 3 hours not moving. Wow, major test of patience.

  2. Wow Paula. I'm sorry I couldn't come help. I'm glad everything worked out though
