A Little Break

Before I talk about our St. George trip, which was soooooo needed, I want to tell you about our new DISNEY WORLD JAR. We had so much fun when Make A Wish sent us to Disney World that we decided we want to take Millie back when she finishes her last round of chemo. Ya I know that's not until 2012, but I love having something WONDERFUL to look forward to. At the end of all this Millie will deserve another dream vacation and we will all want to CELEBRATE!

As a family we went to the craft store, bought the perfect jar, found some sparkly princess stickers, and got to work on our new project. Every time Millie puts a new coin in the jar her whole face lights up!

ST. GEORGE was awesome.

There is just something relaxing about being somewhere different. We went down with some of our cancer friends. It is so nice to have someone to chat with that understand what you're feeling, and what your child is feeling. We also finally got to meet another cancer family that we only know through their blog, the Prince Family. They really were so nice! They let us crash at their house all day Saturday while the guys watched the U game.
Thank you so much. I really don't know how you do everything you do. I can't imagine making the 4+ hour drive from St. George to Primary Children's Hospital, Especially with a new born, a 5 year old, and a 2 year old on chemo. You are amazing Dani!

The Little Guys

Austin, Chase (cancer friend from St. George), Caden

The Little Girls
Cami (cancer friend), Abby (Chase's Big Sis), Millie

They are all 5!

We also got to squeeze some swimming in.

Before we headed home on Sunday we let the kids get some wiggles out at the park.
Love them!

It was a short trip, but I'm so glad we went.

To see more pictures you can check out both Cami and Chase's blogs.

Love the pictures, and Millie reminds me so much of when Brinley's hair started growing back in. I LOVED her little pixie cut, and Millie's hair looks adorable. It changes their whole look when the hair comes back, doesn't it?
