When Metta and Charlotte get a little older- they will be best cousin friends for sure. For now there was a lot of jealousy and and stealing :)
We totally lucked out and got to be in Utah for cousin Hanna's family birthday celebration! it was great.
and the sunset was beautiful. I love this picture of my mom getting apicture with her Ipad :)
The oswald sisters' kiddos. I can't believe we are producing children!!
And the last of the pictures :) Our day in Logan with the Howells.
Logan is where our great great grandparents settled when they came to America from Switzerland. It's why Kent and I got married in Logan.
We visited the land where the first home was built. All that is left is the welcome walkway- and an outdoor stove. Great Grandpa Ulrich Zbinden was a rock collector and made this cool entryway.
Here's the outdoor stove.
We even visited the grave sites of our great great grandparents. Here is our Zbinden- sitting on the original Zbindens.
Nannie Annie and metta.
I love this picture of Grandpa Howell. He's telling a 'story' that actually ends up being a joke about a coffin and a drugstore. He thought he was pretty funny.
After our day in Logan- we had the annual family Bingo game.
This shirt was a hot ticket prize. I mean- who doesn't want a 'poohfect' CHristmas?!
Aunt Rosemary cleared out her ridiculous stuffed animal collection and sent all of the kiddos home with toys :)
cousin kate leaves on her mission TUESDAY!! I love all of these sister missionaries!
I think we did something fun and crazy every day we were in Utah. It made me so homesick. and coming home was so hard! I just have to remind myself that real life in utah isn't that much fun- only weddings and family reunions are :)
Thanks for the great time family!
