"Fall Break"

Many of you may know that BYU does not have a Fall Break for their students. That doesn't really matter though, because it didn't stop us from taking one! In September we were able to go to Seattle to spend time with Trevor's family.

Out to lunch:
Trevor and Rachel (our niece) in the parking lot

To the fair aka "Do the Puyallup":
On the Marry-Go-Round
Ready to Ride

Laura and Rachel watchin' us soar

Upset because mom didn't come on the ride with us
Rachel finally calmed down and enjoyed the ride 
Out for a hike:
Grandpa and Rachel
Most of the Fitzgerald fam 
Taken Captive 
Barb, Rachel, Laura, & me
Watched the BYU v Utah game with friends:

It was a fun trip and I am so blessed to have such great in-laws! As you can see, we did lots of fun things and had a great time. I'll have to admit though, it was a little hard to be there. It was hard to be visiting "grandma and grandpa" but have no grandchild. Being there empty handed made me wish even more that I had my little Luke. I think that's normal though. I think there will just be certain times in life that I'll want Luke to be a part of our experience, and having a good time with family is definitely one of those times ...but it just isn't meant to be.

Thanks Barb and Jim for a great trip! I always love coming to visit. 


  1. Um. I know your post is about family time, but I have to tell you that I love your hair in all of these pictures.

    Also I'm glad you had a fun vacation with your in-laws.

  2. Thanks "Rich Girl"! You're sweet.

  3. When family members aren't around, it's just natural to miss them. Eventually, he'll get to hang out with all your extended family. Hang in there. =)
