I rushed from a meeting at Cedars in Beverly Hills to get to the airport, leaving the hospital only an hour and a half before my flight was scheduled to leave. I was able to get my bag checked and through security arriving at the gate as they were boarding the flight...not a minute to spare. As I got seated, I realized that Danny Glover from "Lethal Weapon" fame was sitting right in front of me. As the doors were closely, the flight attendant asked him to take his bluetooth out of his ear as he was sitting in an exit row and needed to be instructed of what to do in case of emergency. Well, he was angered by the request and quickly started arguing with the flight attendant. She then proceeded to walk to the front of the plane and notify the captain, which scared him into submission. Thankfully, the remainder of the flight was uneventful.
Mom, Emily and Crew picked me up at the airport and we then met Dad, Laurel and Brady, Jocelyn and Cameron, Colton and Cannon for dinner at Cafe Rio. No visit to Utah is complete without pork burritos. We then went to Babies R Us to all express our opinion on which crib Laurel should get. As Crew got restless with shopping, Brady took him to the car to play. As we walked out, Crew is rocking back and forth standing at the wheel as he had quickly discovered that banging the steering wheel with his belly would employ the horn.
Saturday morning I was able to attend the Hooper Tomato Days Rodeo Queen Contest in which MaKenzie was competing. She is absolutely beautiful and so poised. It was fun to cheer her on and I am excited to report that she not only won queen, but also scored the highest in every category.
Alissa and Amber, my other BFF from medical school. They are absolutely the best and I can't wait to be back in Utah and living closer to both of them...they are definitely my soul-sisters and I can't imagine having survived medical school without either of them!
