It was decided very spontaneously to have a Lynn Pettingill reunion and with me having the baby so close to the reunion dates I wasn't sure if I was going to make it. Grandpa's health has really declined this year with multiple surgeries and hospital stays for various reasons so I really wanted to go. BUT I was only four weeks postpartum from a c-section and really wouldn't be able to physically handle the kids by myself. I was in a dilemma and knew I couldn't make it without Lance.
The sunday of that week after church was over the idea hit me to make the drive to Twin Falls in two days while Lance flew in to meet us later in the week. After a quick nap I loaded up our bags and the kids and was on the road by 5pm. We stopped in Pendleton, OR for the night, unbeknownst to me at a really shady hotel (I feared for our lives that night and slept with one eye open when I did sleep). The kids did really great although Kimball wasn't happy about sharing a bed with Cora. The next day we finished the drive and somehow we made it Mom's house.

ALL SEVEN SIBLINGS!!!
After the reunion we were supposed to leave to go home the very next morning but Lance just slept and slept. So I decided I was going to make the most of that extra time. Christine and I went shopping for Father's Day and then went to Daisy's to treat the kids to a Volcano drink and a gumball. We didn't leave go to back home to Spokane until 5pm (we would have stayed longer if Lance didn't have to work in the morning).
