One Crazy Weekend

Last weekend my family and I went on a trip to Boise. I forgot my camera so no picture sorry. We left on Friday and got there about 3 or 4 in the afternoon. It was great not to see snow on the ground since it had snowed the day before we left. We then went and saw our new niece Ella and she was so cute. It is just amazing how little babies are. Then we went and ate and I met up with my friend that I have know since we were in diapers and went to the mall while Darin went swimming with the kids. They loved the swimming so much and I loved shopping. Then Saturday I went to the outlets with my sister in law Val which was tons of fun as all shopping is. Darin went to Cabala's and then he took the kids swimming again, the kids just loved the swimming pool so much Baylee was always asking if she could go swimming. I went and hung out with Suzi again it was so awesome to see her, and her chunky baby Cody. He is so cute and funny. I had a lot of fun playing with Cody. I would tickle him and he would laugh so hard he was squealing like a little pig. Sunday we went to the baby blessing for Ella and then went and got changed after sacrament and started on the road home. The visiting part was a lot of fun, but the drive home wasn't so much. The kids hated to be in the car and were kinda fussy about that but that still wasn't the worst. We were almost home about 45 min. away and we were on hwy 95 and the car in the opposite lane hit us. So the car accident was the worst part just in case you were wondering. The car was going into our lane and it seemed as if she was aiming for us even though she wasn't, and Darin swerved off the road and she side swiped us on the driver side. The air bags deployed and our car turned into a ditch. Darin was driving and my brother in law was in the passenger side and Bryson was on the back driver side, Baylee on the back passenger side, and I was in the middle of the kids. The driver of the other car fell asleep at the wheel and hit us and then hit a power line which then fell over. She was taken away in the ambulance but was alright that we knew. We came out of the car with only a jammed finger for my brother in law that was on the passenger side and some soar muscles. Everyone is alright for the most part just really shook up. We think that our car is totaled. I will post some pictures of it soon. I am just so grateful that my family is alright. I'm grateful for the power of prayer and I really and truly felt that God had his eye on my family Sunday evening. That we are really and truly blessed to have walked away from this accident.

AHHH, I hate car accidents! I wasn't sure what had happened because the picture message was blurry, but I am so glad you are all ok. On the bright side if your car is totaled, car shopping is always fun :)
