a month in UT

After Sam's 4 week Pediatric rotation, we flew up to Vegas, rented a car and drove to St George for his Urology rotation. On our way out of Vegas we met up with a bunch of Sam's cousins over at Grandpa Bandley's house.  It was so nice to see everyone again! Landon and Crew got to finally meet their Great Grandpa. We stayed with Sam's parents in St George and got to do lots of playing!

We had tons of fun playing with cousins and just hanging out! Thanks to everyone who made our two months out West so fun!


a month in AZ

Sam got to do 2 elective rotations during his clinical year.  We got lucky and got to do one in AZ and one in UT.  With his busy school/test schedule we had 2 days to get to AZ before his rotation started. We flew out of Boston on New Years Eve and landed in Phoenix after the New Year.

Crew slept the entire flight... on the floor
Sam was so lucky to get to work with Dr Guthrie in Gilbert.  Dr Guthrie was my pediatrician when I was a kid, and then Landon's when we lived in AZ.  He is an amazing Dr, and such a great person.  Sam loved working with him and was able to learn a lot.    While Sam was at work the kids and I kept busy playin around.

These nerds would not leave the trampoline.
