Last weekend CJ and his dad took a boys' trip to Utah. As with every trip back home, CJ's itinerary is booked solid (dressing in cowboy clothes to help his cousin with a school project, eating school lunch in the cafeteria, sleeping over at his cousins', sleeping over at Nana's, eating breakfast for dinner at a cafe, looking for Sasquatch in the mountains with Papa, playing Prom with other cousins, Easter egg hunt at Grammy's, sleeping over at Grammy's) etc. And without fail, he always ends a trip to Utah with a hoarse voice and total exhaustion. And we all know it takes a lot for CJ to get exhausted.
I was happy that Chad was able to get his work meeting out of the way, go golfing with his dad, check out Utah's spring practices and, most importantly, eat at The Greek Souvlaki.
I love that CJ has so many people who love him and that he absolutely LOVES going to Utah. But three days without them is about 2-1/2 days too long. I had so much fun spending such quality time alone with Trey but the kid is so easy going and low maintenance!
It's just proof that as my family changes, my identity changes and I am only entirely myself with we are all together. There's nowhere I'd rather be than home with my little boys and their dad. Nowhere. So you could say that the next 14 years until CJ is old enough to go on a mission are more than welcome to drag along as sloooooow as they'd like.
