Road Trip to Manti

This last weekend my sister Shelly blessed her new baby Ella in Manti. A bunch of us thought it would be fun for the girls to go down the night before, and get a room, and the boys would meet us down there on Sunday morning. So we reserved a family suite at one of the 3 MOTELS in Manti. Needless to say, we were not sure what to expect. Melissa and Ally were suppose to come with us too but had an unexpected emergency. We missed you guys...and boy did you guys miss out. Abby, Luke, and I got to Manti checked in and went to Shelly's house to play, and shop for hair bows while we waited for Mom, and Pam to get there. We finally got to the room at about 10:30, and were all pooped...I am laughing to myself at the pooped pun, and you will understand as I get further into the story. Mom had gone to use the restroom, and we heared some kind of shreak....

This is what we found...Mom said that Luke was crawling along trying to Mr. Miagi this poor roach, and Gramma smashed it. That set the tone for the next set of fun. Upon trying to flush the roach down the potty, it started to over-flow. And something not of any of our making came back up...hense the pooped pun. YUCK!!!

Luke was totally oblivious to the grossness of the situation...he is a boy, and only wanted to watch t.v. We then called maint. ie the motel manager to come fix the clog. We should have had him leave the plunger.

Pam checked her bed for bugs.....we then all got ready for bed, and had probably one of the most memorable, fun, blackmale worthy 20 minutes of our lives.

This self portrait was right before we turned in. During the night after we thought that our plumbing problems were over, I had to potty so bad that my hands were hurting. I had waited because I didn't want to wake up Mom, and Pam. By the way...what family "suite" can you imagine would only have one bathroom? Anyway..I walked into their room, and mom said Kris watch out the toilet over flowed AGAIN. I went into the bathroom, and their were towels every where, and my sockies were soaked. YUCKIER. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. ;D Anyhoo...we called the maint. guy again in the morning. I am sure that he just loved us. Everyone kept asking me if I complained. What would they do? Give me a free night? Ha Ha

The blessing was beautiful, and Ella even more so. She is a beautiful baby. The weather was wonderful, and the kids were able to play outside.

Ella Deborah Anderson. The newest member of our family.

It was a very memorable weekend. We had so much fun...Thanks girls for the memories!

That was so fun having you guys come down the night before! I'm sorry I forgot to tell you to being your own complimentary plunger!! Hopefully next time we will have our basement done so that you guys can stay here instead of the Manti Roach Motel!! Love you guys!
