UEA trip to Boise

We took a much needed vacation to Boise this last weekend. 
The kids LOVED it and so did we. 
First off was bowling and Laura who happened to be at a conference there was able to stop by and chat for a minute. Sadly this is the most I've seen her in awhile. 
Then that night Kelli took me on a girls night with some of her friends. Lots of fun!!! 
The next day we went to the Temple open house and that night Seth and Nate got to go out to eat and watch the Utah game.
So it went by fast but was so much fun!!
As we were getting ready to leave (still in the driveway) Bre says "I miss Hailee" and 20 minutes later Claire says "I can't wait to go back and have a sleepover with Hailee".
That about sums it up.

Getting though

Tonight I wrote Kenny an e-mail pretty much begging for Bella to be able to come with us for at least one Halloween event. The school carnival, the ward party or trick or treating. They all fall on his nights and I knew it was a long shot but I thought I can't live with myself and look Bella in the eye if I haven't tried everything.
After I sent the e-mail I said a prayer that I could accept the things that come. This is so hard for me.
I hate knowing that Kenny can hurt Bella like this and watch her look at me like "why aren't you stopping it?".
But at the same time I know my Father in Heaven has a plan for me and my family, especially Bella.
I love her so much!
This trail will make me stronger I know it!
