We're Home!!


13 airplane flights
3 temples
2 bladder infections
1 hospital visit
8 hotels
3 countries
1 continent
a few sleepless nights
and SO many new memories...

It has been an adventurous few weeks. After visiting Argentina, Brasil, and a quick stop in Paraguay we are finally home. We had so much fun and crammed so much stuff into our 2 1/2 week vacation. We started our trip off in Argentina, went to the temple there, and visited some people from Drew's (trae's younger brother) mission. It's official that Argentina has the worlds best Ice Cream ever. We didnt stay there very long but had a great time, met some amazing people and saw so many cool things. Then we headed to Brasil where we spent the rest of the trip. We went to Sao Paulo, Brasilia, Cuiaba, Recife, Olinda, Porto De Galinhas, Iguacu Falls, Rio de Janeiro, and the Pantanal. I still can not believe all of the things we saw and did in that amount of time. My favorite place was definatley Iguacu Falls. It was absolutely amazing!!!! I got sick with a killer bladder infection that turned into a kidney infection so i had a few miserable days and had to miss out on a couple of things but i went to the doctor, got an antibiotic and started feeling much better. We went out to dinner with Trae's mission president, met some people he baptized, went to dinner with Dee's (Trae's dad) mission presidents family from 25 years ago, met some people he baptized, went to a few beaches, swam in a coral reef in the Atlantic Ocean, almost got attacked by an alligator, saw the Christus Statue, did alot of shopping, and went to two temples there. We really did have an amazing time, but it sure feels good to be HOME!

see you in 3 weeks!

well.. i'm checking out of the blogging world for a few weeks and going on vacation baby!!! We're heading for South America bright and early tomorrow morning. It will be so nice to get away from Provo for a few weeks and get a much needed vacation before school starts again. Too bad we just found out it was 32` F in Argentina today... i got my jacket packed. Hopefully Brasil will greet us with warm, sun tanning weather. Trae says some of the worlds greatest beaches are in Brasil..sure hope he's right. Well... see you in a few weeks!!
