what a weekend...

I flew home this weekend and it was so nice to see my family. The weekend was filled with adventure. First of all I love to fly in airplanes. I get this ridiculous grin on my face when the plane is taking off. I just love it. Especially at night with all of the lights. I got in late Thursday night, hung out with Riley Friday night and then my brothers and I drove to San Diego for my cousin's lovely wedding on Saturday (my parents left on Friday). On the way there, we maxed out the truck and hit 110 mph. Woohoo! We are very safe drivers. Think about it... three teenagers and an open road... good one mom and dad. Needless to say, we got there in record time. The wedding was wonderful and then we all turned around to head back the same day. We knew the drive back would be a bit longer since the parentals would be with us. There was the girl car (me and my mom) and then the boy car (my dad and brothers). Sam drove the boy car and at about midnight he got pulled over going 91 mph, 21 mph over the speed limit! My mom and I saw the action and immediately said a quick, simple prayer that the policeman would have compassion and not give Sam a ticket. Well it turns out that the policeman and his partner were both Mormon and Sam subtly mentioned that we were trying to get home so we could go to church tomorrow. He amazingly enough did not get a ticket...MIRACLE and direct answer to our prayer! So we continued on home even slower than before. We got there around 1ish and got up early this morning for church which started at nine. Different than the usual 1 o'clock church I have learned to enjoy at school. Well, today was the Primary Program. Do I need to say more? It was so funny! Little kids are my favorite. They scream into the microphone, laugh, cry, sway to the music, refuse to stand, and they wave to their proud parents. I think the only thing my mom said to me throughout sacrament meeting was, "Katie, we are a lot quieter in church when you are not here." ouch.... I'm glad you enjoy having me around, mom. Feeling the love. Me, Sam, and Rye....we just had to catch up on things. Now I am back at school, after a nice plane ride back. I love how airports are the best places to people watch... so entertaining. Try it out some time.. just for fun.

That story about the (non-)ticket is crazy!

Thanks so much for making the short trip out here. It was so great to have everyone together. I wish I could have spent more time with you guys. My kids were going bonkers.
