After we blessed baby CeCe we left spencer and headed onward to Utah.
But before all that
Our mini van had a minor encounter with a wild boar at 1230am in the middle of nowhere Texas. Spencer was driving and all the kids were finally asleep when we drove upon a small pack of wild boars in the middle of the road. Spencer did a great job of trying to slow down, but the boar darting infront of us at the last minute. Luckily Spencer didn't panic and over correct but we did some damage on the front right side of the car.
As we stopped to access the damage, we were lucky the car was still drivable because we were 40min from cell phone range and still 5hrs from spencers parents in Colorado. The accident could have been much worse, especially with so much previous cargo. Unfortunately when we hit the boar it woke the girls, and they were pretty sad that we killed a pig, but got over it quickly when Spence said we would just eat it later.
The car spent two weeks in the shop but is all fixed. I'm so grateful that nothing more serious happened.
After the blessing spencer flew back to Texas to do a heavy rotation at the VA and to be on call the whole month. We Have really missed him but he has been super busy and doing a lot of surgery which he loves.
When we finally arrived in Utah we were treated like queens! All the cousins were so excited to see us and finally meet CeCe.
So grateful to be around family and so many helping hands.
We were able to grandma and grandpa mortensen again during conference!
