Our Trip to see Addie in Pleasant Groves

At the urging of some of my favorite blog posse members, I’m finally getting around to posting some pictures of Suzy and my trip to Utah to visit our son’s family including little 2 month old Addie, our third grandchild. We took a flight on Delta by the way that was less than satisfactory. The gate change 30 minutes before the scheduled departure. Then the flight was canceled for three hours. The staff never told us what was happening until we got on the plane. And then they made a lame excuse about needing to fly a replacement from Salt Lake City to Seattle. I suspect that they had such a small passenger list that they merged two flights to save money.

Once in Utah there was rush hour traffic which we had tried to avoid by scheduling an early flight. Then there was an accident so that the going got even slower. Fortunately our experience at the Marriott in Provo was excellent complete with employees who took the service with a smile to heart. So firstly some picture of Addie and family. (You might want to click on the title of this post to see just the post and then the pictures will be laid out as I formatted them.

Now some obligatory picture of the Pleasant Grove and surrounding area. Since we went to Salt Lake City the last time we visited there are no pictures of those highlights here.

All in all it was a great trip. We can’t wait until our son finishes college and returns to the great Northwest. Wendy and Aaron were such nice hosts. We really miss them now.

    Nice photos! I’m glad you enjoyed your trip despite getting shunted/shuttled…whatever…around during your travel. My husband I experienced rush hour traffic in Atlanta several years ago, so we’ve taken great pains to try and find some way AROUND the city when we travel in that area. My now-deceased mom, who was a native of Georgia once told me that Atlanta has always been hectic even when she lived there in the 1920s, relocating in her school years to Alabama. It’s my understanding the two airports which are definitions of Hell are Atlanta and Dallas. Never flown in those regions. I’m guessing Delta is now on your "no fly" list if you can avoid it???

    THIS posse member is tickled to see the pictures.  Hi, Addie.  :-)
     Additionally I am not in the least surprised at the less than good trip via any airline.  My last trip was last year.  It took me to Philadelphia International.  That trip to was decent enough…but coming back has a horror tale.

    Addie has such kissable cheeks!  She’s a doll!  I’m glad you enjoyed your visit… when you finally made it there.  😉

    Addie looks to be in good spirits and will bring much joy to the family.Flying like that does make it a challenge to keep a positive attitude but I suspect that Addie made you forget about some of your troubles with the airlines.

    Addie is indeed adorable, and that smile on her face, as her daddy holds her, is so precious.   Enjoyed seeing the pictures of your trip, and of you and Suzy, and the scenery.  So glad you had a great trip.
