So, those three extra kids in the above picture are my nieces and nephew that live (with their parents) in Pennsylvania. They want to come back to the motherland for a visit sometime this year. With the price of fuel and airline tickets so ridiculous, we have been brainstorming cost-effective way to get them all here.
*Lightning flash* *thunder crash*
Here comes the brainstorm!
My mom mentioned to Hillary that she needs to get on a reality show that would pay for her travels.
Hillary and I were talking yesterday and planned the perfect show. "Sisters to Zion." It would be on BYUTV. They would fly me and my kids back to Pennsylvania to start our adventure. Hill & I would drive cross-country to Utah with our seven kids between us. Zany hilarity would insue. we would highlight Church history sites (since we're on BYUTV) and possibly be sponsered by a company with very nice motorhomes. Then we thought, why not add the rest of the crew:
Kat, Court- we're taking you and your kids too. "Four Sister to Zion."
John & Kate, the Duggars- they've got nothing on this crowd. An eight year old, two six year olds, a five year old, three four year olds, a two-and a half yr old, 18 monther, and two infants.
Maybe Huggies, Pampers, Enfamil and Gerber could help out too.
So, who thinks this is a good idea?
As sisters to Zion we'll all drive together. The noises of kids in the background we'll hear. We'll tour all the church sites from Harmony to Parley's, then get our free travel for the Arveseths!
