Travel Nursing

4th in the Salt Lake Valley

So the wife and I took off to the Salt Lake Valley to meet our newest grandchild July 4th. The boys could not get off work so they babysat Monty and Mahana and we took Morgana with us. The trip over was uneventful for the most part. But what a view coming into the Salt Lake Valley. We hit the valley about 9PM. And there was fireworks everywhere. Between multiple neighborhoods and various cities in the valley, there were hundreds of clusters going off. It was a site.

The fireworks still did not compare to meeting our second grandson Jack Dee Widener. He is perfect in every way. This picture was taken just minutes after our arrival. Grandma was smitten!

We got to meet up with some old friends from Georgia, The Mabry’s. Rick and Alannah were both soldiers at Ft. Gordon when we lived in Augusta. We were in the Jeep clubs together. Rick is now a police officer near Ogden and Alannah is going to school for nursing. We got to meet their newest edition, who incidentally was born on the same day as Jack. We also met up with Beverly Foulger, Dianne’s friend. When we did the 6 month travel assignment in Ogden, Utah Beverly worked at the same hospital as Dianne. Beverly loves Basset Hounds and misses hers. So she spoiled ours!!! Side note, we met at Farrs Ice Cream. If you are ever in Utah either go by their ice cream parlor in Ogden or pick some up in the grocery store, you will not be disappointed.

The trip home was awesome. Sad to leave, but we were excited to get back to Monty and Mahana
