It's always great to see you guys. Next time you come, though, I vote we just eat at Chuck-A-Rama. No way we're waiting 4 hours at the Chuck.

Yea, I have missed your posts. What, four hours? Not worth the wait? I love the cheesecake fact. I am jealous, Cafe Rio. We are really hoping to make it out to Utah some time this year. Loved the pictures. Hope to see you guys this summer. Have a great day.

With the schedule you had in UT, there is no way we would have fit in your schedule! :-) It always gets busy with family. I'm glad you had a fun time and sorry you had a sinus infection!!!

WOW how fun! I can't believe all the varieties of places to go out to eat! Thanks for the Christmas card your little family looks so cute and I can't believe how big Angela is getting. She is all grown up I guess it has been too long since I have seen your family. Well it sounds like you guys are doing good and loving life! Now that we have your blog maybe we can keep in better touch...yay!!!
