VA to CO to UT to NE to VA. Old school style (notice no electronic devices?!). I like this picture of the kids because it accurately captures their travel personalities. Grace is occupied with her toes for hours on end, Gwen must be eating or drinking at ALL times and of course, Noah is harassing Ryan in the back seat.
Is there a better way to stretch your legs during a long travel day than 4 wheeler rides with Uncle Alan? It was so fun to pit stop in Rangely, CO to visit Jared’s sister, Alison. I just love the big smile on Alan’s face after scaring Gwen to death during her turn.
Beautiful Colorado! The weather and the mountains were absolutely gorgeous while we were there. Took a great hike with cousins in the mountains and ate lots of cherries (thanks to my awesome sister Cori for the pics of Grace). My kids are incredibly lucky to have great grandparents, not to mention great grandmas who will swim and play in the pool with them! We spent a gorgeous Colorado day with Grandma Dodie at her pool during our stop-over in CO.
And while we spent the bulk of our trip having a great time in Utah – we have one single picture to prove it. Fire me! My only excuse is that we were just having too much fun to stop and pose for pictures. This is Grace and Eliza, Jared’s best friend’s daughter:
I really can’t believe I don’t have pictures of the family reunion – the slide contest at Scera pool (of course we are talking about the grown men), the minute-to-win-it games at FHE, the too-short reunions with old friends, BYU bookstore shopping trip, tubing and wake boarding (attempts) at the lake. Our week in Utah was so fun.
On the road again with a prank for the sleeping passenger.
