Surprise Trip to Utah

Sabra came over two weeks ago and told me she wanted to have us surprise Bonnie with a trip up to Utah to visit her. So with a little rearranging of schedules we made a quick trip up to Utah. It was a lot of fun.

We were shocked at how cold it was up there.

Shhhhh! Don't tell, the 2 year olds have bottles. If the nursery leaders saw this we would be in big trouble. I got grief because of a pacifier, I can't imagine what they'd say to chocolate milk in a bottle.
He was in heaven not only did he get to play with his cousins, but there were two huge dogs for him to play with.

The kids got to put on their swim suits and hang out in the jacuzzi tub.

Here are the two huge dogs.

Bellie loved playing with her cousins but was terrified by the dogs.

Syd is getting so big and beautiful.

The boys had so much fun together.
Biz was mostly excited to be around so many dogs. The whole trip I heard "mom, you got to look at that dog"
These two played and played non stop.

Ryan says she gets this face from me, I don't know what he's talking about.

The kids had a bunch of late nights of video games and movies. There was even a bit of black jack going on but we won't go into that.
It was such a fun trip, we really loved hanging out with Bonnie and Wyatt. They are a great couple and have a wonderful family. We love you guys and wish we could get together more often.

Thanksgiving Point

Not being from Utah, but having friends and family there I've always heard of Thanksgiving Point. I'd been told it had gardens and animals. So I've always pictured, a giant pumpkin patch with turkeys running around hence the name - Thanksgiving Point.
Apparently I was wrong. So here are pictures from our afternoon.

These two were little peas in a pod. They are so much a like it was fun to watch them.

Sisters make life so much better! And I'm lucky to have 2 awesome sisters.

Our little family enjoying the gardens, and not a pumpkin in sight.

Bonnie's super cute family. As you can tell by the expressions on their faces, they are so much fun to be with.

Sabra looking beautiful as always

Bonnie with her baby!

My baby, getting bigger and bigger everyday.

And we ended at a waterfall, how romantic.

Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house

The Oquirrh Mountain Temple was really beautiful. Biz was the most excited to see the temple, the minute the angle Moroni came into view he started yelling "there it is, there's the temple".
The kids had so much fun seeing inside a temple. It was a neat experience.
After the open house we took a bunch of pictures.

Sabra got the girls matching dresses.
