A quick trip turns into a long visit!

So I am back into the blogging loop. I am just now finally having the chance to sit down and take some time to write an update.

It all started Jan 25th. We were home in Michigan (from Toronto) for the weekend. Justin got the call from his mom that her dad, Justin's Grandpa passed away. The next morning Justin and Kamden boarded a plane to fly home, with the plans of me, Austin (my brother who is living with us) and Karson to fly out later that night. To make a long story short we ended up staying the night in Minneapolis. Our first plane was late taking off so we missed our connecting flight to Idaho Falls. Seeing as though it was the last flight of the night they sent us away with nothing but our carry on luggage, the clothes on our backs, and a new flight plan that now would take us from Minneapolis to Salt Lake to Salt Lake to Idaho Falls. The most annoying part about it all is that when you are trying to get things all figured out there seems to be way more people who say "I can't help you" then those who will tell you "I can help you".

Justins Grandpas funeral was held Friday the 29th. It was a nice service. It is a very nice feeling knowing that his beloved wife Faye was waiting to greet him with open arms. Now once again they are together. It was really great being able to see everyone again and visit.

So of course seeing as though I was already out here, we decided to stay an extra three weeks. We will be in Idaho till the 25th of March, when we will be flying back to Michigan with my brother and sister. Justin flew back a week ago with Austin. It looks like our time in Toronto has come to an end, so today Justin is packing the house there up and driving back to Michigan. In a lot of ways I wish I had more time there. It was fun being there and experiencing something new. But it will also be nice to be back in Michigan in our house with all our own stuff.

I will take lots of pictures of our visit here in Idaho and I will be sure to post them.

Hey Chels I hope you are having fun in Idaho Falls! I didn't know the Toronto fun was wrapping up so soon. Sounds like a good experience all in all. Enjoy being back home!

Wow, that was sudden. The last I heard you were going to be in Toronto until the end of April. I'm excited though. We will probably be seeing you in May. YEAH!
