Family Dinner

With all 5 siblings in town for Adam's wedding, we had to get together one more time.  We had a lot of fun reminiscing and telling Travis and Sarah some of our family legends.  Pops and Amy recounted the story of when Amy and I got dropped off at the Rydin's house, 5 miles from home, in the middle of winter, and no one was home.  Bobi dropped us off and immediately left, even though she couldn't see the front door from the driveway (she had to get to a rehearsal).

And how, at 5 & 7, we decided to just walk home.  In a snowstorm.

Between us we had 2 coats, 1 hat, 1 hood, 1 scarf, and 1 pair of mittens.  We each wore one mitten and held hands, and put the other hand in our coat pockets.  We walked home on the shoulder of Palatine Road, which is about the same as Bangerter Highway, and crossed a freeway entrance.  We got home and went right in, sat down and watched TV.  No one was home, so we entertained ourselves.

They were all out looking for us, including the police!
Bobi, Kevin's mom, Nana, Pops, Sarah, Jon, Teri, Brian, Amy, Robyn, and Kevin
