Last night my mom had her sisters and their husbands over for a Father's Day dinner with their dad. So she
told me to get lost suggested that me and my kids might be happier if we found someway to occupy ourselves during that time. So we went to Chantal's house for dinner. Israel calls her kids "the blonde girls." It's pretty cute. Everyone played together quite nicely and Chantal and I even got to craft a little. That's pretty much what happens every single time any of us get together for any amount of time - we find some project to work on. So enjoy the pictures and here's the link to learn to make headbands yourself! Braided headband found via Rachel @ No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane.

So after we got the new truck and well rested, we took off from Gallup, New Mexico for the last leg of our journey. My mom and brother left with the moving van about an hour earlier than Randal and I did. Just before we drove into Heber, AZ (about 3 hours from my mom and dad's house) we got a call from my mom and brother. The SECOND Budget van had broken down. Yup, that's right, another breakdown and another day spent waiting. Five hours sitting on the side of the road, nearly 2 hours of being on hold, 1 diesel mechanic, 2 cops, and a sunburn later we were finally on our way again. And luckily, we finally made it home - AND without anymore problems!
