Utah Trip

The kids and I were able to spend about four weeks in Utah this summer. Matt joined us after his trip to the Dominican Republic and finals. It was great to be able to spend time with our extended family and not feel so rushed with things. We had plenty of time to do all we wanted to do. The kids seem to love the simple and easy things the best. Riding in the buggy with McKay and Grandpa Mel,
mowing the lawn with the riding lawn mover, playing with the baby foxes,

visiting Maggie,

and spraying the weeds

and playing around at Grandpa Brent's barn.

I always try to plan elaborate outings, and then I realize that the kids just want to be kids who can run the neighborhood with out a care. I realized that my kids need a backyard in the worst way!

It's true about the kids, they like just hanging around and playing at the barn and stuff. Although I am a lot closer than you are, I sometimes wish I lived right on our parent's street!

It looks like you had a great time! I'm so glad you were able to spend 4 weeks back with your family; that's neat!
