Heywood is the new awesome

Obviously Utah is great for friending, but I'm extra lucky because for me, Utah is also great for familying. Sometimes it's hard to squeeze it all in but here is proof that I was successful. I present to you, my family. The best family ever.

I'm happy to report that Allie and I are friends now. You might remember a time when Allie was not so sure how she felt about Auntie Betsy. Now she is mostly sure she loves me.

Having said all that, I should point out Allie doesn't love anyone as much as she loves my mom.

My sort of excuse for taking a quick weekend trip to Utah was because it was my sister Jen's birthday. We decided to take her out for a fancy dinner at Winger's. I should point out, Doug is not my husband. And Jake, Emma and Sophie are not our kids.

Doug is Suzy's husband. But Jake does not belong to Suzy.

Jake belongs to Jen and Joseph.

Maybe you've noticed that there are a lot of females in the Heywood family? And some might say when all the females get together we can be a bit...overwhelming. So sometimes the boys find it necessary to stick together. Except, where's my dad?

Oh he's just driving Emma around on the riding lawn mover. No big deal.

Jake was like "when is it MY turn to drive the riding lawn mower?"

Then I was like "Jake'll get your turn...until then, let's take self portraits!"

Then Sophie wanted in on the self-portrait action.

Cake time! What newly turned 37 year old...

...asks for, and then gets so excited when she receives a GameBoy DS Lite for her birthday? Jen.

Adding to the female count are Rosie & Lucy.
You might remember that once I said I don't miss Rosie barely at all. Still true.

I do however miss Lucy. Lucy is my cat that I bought from the pound for $8 when I was in college. Sometimes my dad thinks it's funny to get Lucy shaved like a lion before I come home to visit.

    I'm a serious traitor to the Heywood legacy. Brown hair is a disgrace where I come from.
