Trip to Provo

Last week Mark, Neal and I drove to Provo to drop off Michelle's things for school. Michelle had flown out to DC a week prior to drive back to Provo with Brad while stopping at church sites along the way. They stopped for a night in Ohio and stayed with the Mitchells who used to be in our ward in California. (thank you Terry and Cheryl for letting them stay with you, they had a GREAT time and said you guys are SO fun!)Michelle and Brad had a great time driving together with stories to tell which makes for fun memories. Road trips are fun. Laurel also just returned from a road trip as well, with her roomates to the west coast from Seattle to Oregon to the Redwood forest and San Fransisco where they were able to get super great seats to Wicked for 25 bucks! Lucky ducks!

We love to hear Laurel sing so before she took off for the fall we had her do a mini concert for us at Grandma Cahoon's house. Pam, Mark's sister is always to willing to play the piano for us. It is nice to have a piano player in the family to call on.

While in Provo we stayed at Jamie and Rob's home (Pam's daughter) which was nice. They live right off of 9th east so it was close to everything. One morning Jamie put on her second annual "cousins breakfast" which was fun. She made crepes with all the fixings. The gathering was small this year as there could be close to 30 or so or more or less. Lots of them anyway.

Move in day for Michelle.

Her apartment is on 300 North, away from the hustle and bustle of BYU which is a little farther than we intended,but she has nice roomates(who are a bit older)and the apartment is not too shabby. She has her own room and shares with one other girl.

I think Michelle is going to miss me and I'll miss her too. Little Michelle in college? I still can hardly believe it.

Kind of a bittersweet feeling -- I know. So good to see them growing up and flying away - -and so hard, too.

And fun to see the pics of Provo. We've been away too long - time for a trip back there!

I so cannot believe that Michelle is at BYU this year! What??!?!?!? It can't be!

Such an exciting time. Cute photos, thanks for including them.

Lee Lee, what a neat thing to see your kids go to the "Y". Michelle's apartment looks nice....much better than the Regency Apartments we stayed in. Seeing you at that apartment reminds me of the fun times we had there. You and Marilou were great roomates! There are just some fun times you never forget. Isn't that nice?
