Boise Vacation The End

On Monday we headed back home. The girls and I rode home with Grandma Clayton (she was one brave soul traveling 2 long days with Lydia in the car). Although Lydia was much better than I had expected. She had some pretty goofy moments...


And many moments of trying to escape her car seat. We stopped in Brigham City and checked out the new Temple that is almost done...


And the Tabernacle across the street...


Once we hit Phoenix we got really excited because we were almost home! Then we got stuck in traffic. Then we got close to Picacho Peak and off to the side it looked like large smoke clouds. I called Chad and asked if there were fires but he said he hadn't heard of any. Then a few minutes later we found out that it was a giant dust storm and were caught in the middle of it! Sadly I had only taken pictures on my cell but this is basically what it was like...



I guess they call these dust storms "Haboobs" and several people die in accidents in them every year. We pulled over and watched crazy people walking around outside around an accident and called 911 to report it. I don't know how long it lasted but it was kind of scary. Then we realized all of our stuff was going to be full of dust in the back of the truck. Once we finally got out of the haboob....it rained. Awesome. But we made it home in one piece!

It was such a fun vacation! But it was nice to get home! The girls were beyond excited to be home and sleep in their own beds. Sophie jumped onto her bed and said "I missed you!!"
