A Quick Getaway

I am so glad that Tom's back in school!  Why?  Because we actually see him for a little bit now.  The summer was rough, really, really rough.  Tom was working 2 jobs and was home less than ever.  It was hard on all of us.  Tom created and started an internship, hoping to get some real-world experience in an auto shop while still getting class credit.  It didn't take long for us to realize this was not an option for us.  He was NEVER home.  Never.  Gratefully, he quit the internship so he would have time for homework and family.  Whew. 
We took a quick trip to Ogden and Elko.  Here are a few pics from our trip.
We started our trip with a drive thru the Alpine Loop.  It was really bright.

Relaxing in the hotel in Ogden

Happy to be out of the car seat

Playing at the Treehouse Museum.  Aileah loved it!

Aileah asked me to take this pic at the Dinosaur Park.

Visiting with Tom's family

  It was nice to just be together and to get away... even if it wasn't a "real" vacation.  I love the times when we are all together.  I wish we had it more.  We are all a lot happier :)

I am glad you and your kids get to see Tom more often. Hopefully it stays that way for the whole semester. How fun to go on a little getaway!

Fun that you got to have time together, making memories. Sorry the internship didn't work out. I'm not looking forwrard to doing classes and internship next semester, but I have no choice if I wanna graduate, and I gotta so I can get a job. Sure is easier to do this stuff when you don't have a family yet. :) Glad he gets more home time now.
