Sweet Home Plano, Texas

It's been a nice start to this summer so far with McKay home. He's been interviewing for a ton of internships all over Utah County. This last week was just spent waiting to hear back from a few, and it was a good a time as any to jet down to Texas for a bit! We were missing our southern people. We didn't get many pictures, but we had a really good time. I got to spend a lot of time with all the Hinckley girls, with an A&E Pride and Prejudice night, a trip to downtown Dallas to see Sarah, Plain and Tall with all the girls, and lots of cousin time with Evelyn and Edison. McKay saw the new Star Trek movie with all the guys (plus Michelle, who is a closet Trekkie), and we had several Hinckley dinners. We loved our trip, but it really didn't help improve our patience in waiting for the end of this year. We are for sure ready to be done with school!

Meet Fuzz. Tyler kept this poor feline running from the second we got there to the second we left. This look of resigned endurance says it all.

For some reason, we have a ton more pictures from the drive home than we did from the whole trip. We made a little detour at the base of Utah to go visit...

Four Corners! We'd never been there before, and it was only about twenty minutes off the main highway.

Hi Robin!
Hi Kim!

Tyler REALLY liked the observation deck, and thought he was very funny for having discovered it.

Just a little down the road, Tyler was getting pretty restless again, so we re-visited Wilson's Arch. This time around, though, Tyler was a lot more mobile, so he had a lot of fun climbing around. We made sure to keep our eyes on him, though. Don't worry, grandmas :-)

We miss you already, Texas!

I love the four corners pictures, but that is one unhappy cat :):):)
