We found Jane and Allan, Lance and Courtnee and kids in town and headed to Royal Pizza for dinner. It's a tiny place and very popular so the wait was long, but it was worth it because the food was amazing. After dinner we each made our way back to our seperate lodging for the night.

Our apartment was on Main Street and and besides the bright street lights coming through our windows, there was a group of loud drunks outside on the street until about 1:30 in the morning. Cody and I FINALLY dozed off, when Garrett came into our room crying and scared. After getting him to sleep and me dozing off again, I woke up to him fussing on the floor beside our bed and he was covered in blood. He had a bloody nose, but in the middle of the night is scared me to death because I couldn't tell where the blood was coming from! It was a REEEEEEALLY long night for Cody and me. Garrett woke up two more times with his nose bleeding before the sun came up. That poor kid has my nose and it bleeds easily in the dry air.
The next morning, I got a text from Skylar that Leighann had their baby girl at 5:11 that morning!!! She wasn't due until today (July 4th) so it was a big surprise for everyone. It's almost all I could think about the rest of the day! Her birth story is HERE on my sister's blog.

We had made arrangements for Jane and Allan to take Ethan and Lance's three boys back with them to Filer for a few days. I hate saying goodbye to my kids like that, even if it is only for a three days. But Ethan was very excited to go. We hit the road at 6:00 and barely made it back to town in time for Lauren to get to her end of year soccer movie party at her coach's house. We were sunburned and tired, but it was a fun 24 hours!
