Salt Lake

My Grandma moved to Salt Lake last summer. This was our first visit. We went with my sister Emily, her boys, and my mom. We stopped in Vegas for a night at Circus Circus. I love this pic cuz it's kinda funky.
They rode this train ride because it was 1 of 2 that Kaitlyn didn't cry at. This picture is awesome because it looks like Kaitlyn just slapped Carter. Love it.
This is what happens when it's snowing outside and you have 3 kids that haven't really played outside for a few days. They get a little bit crazy.
Love this one too. That's the Salt Lake Temple in the back. It's such a beautiful building.

We got to go up the observation deck of the church office building. The view was amazing and it was a little warmer up there. The kids loved the elevator ride too.
The temple from the observation deck.
We went bowling with my cousin Geoff and his wife Jess and their daughter Katelyn. The kids loved it.
The mountains were covered in snow. It was beautiful.
Love this picture of Kaitlyn. What a beautiful girl.

Birthday #33

The weekend before my birthday Em and Buzz were here to bless Austin. This is Emma(6 months old) and Austin(1.5 months old). Pretty funny.
This year Jessica planned this fun little dinner for me and a few of my close friends. We went to El Cholo in Pasadena. It was so fun. So nice not to have kids and to just be out with the girls. I had spent that day at the spa too which was fantastic. It was a great day!
They got the "band" to come and sing me Happy Birthday. It was pretty sweet.

A visit with the Chin's

This is in 9th grade. At a football game. Wendy and I met in 5th grade at Monte Vista. A lot of time between 5th grade and 11th grade we spent together. We lost touch and then reconnected and then lost touch again. Now Wendy lives in Alaska with her husband who is in the Air Force. We got to see each other last Christmas when she was here visiting her Dad. It was so fun to see her. It had been about 13 years since we had seen each other. It's always nice to remember why you were friends with certain people. There are some people that you can just pick up where you left off 13 years later. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to see Wendy again and to have our kids play together.
These are the kiddos. Kaitlyn, Abey, and Ellie. They had so much fun. Luckily we were sitting outside by ourselves most of the time so other people didn't have to hear how much fun they were having.
This is Abey. Kaitlyn took this one. Pretty cute.
This is Ellie. Sitting so quietly. Her kids were so cute. We had such a good time.

Phoenix Children's Museum

I love this one because Colin was so mad that Kaitlyn got in the car with him. It was hilarious.
This is the only pic we got of Devin. Kaitlyn loved this part of the store. You could measure and weigh the lentils.
They had bags and carts and the kids could go shopping and then checkout and pay for everything. It was so funny to watch the kids pretend.
Kaitlyn loved riding this bike with Colin. Luckily, Colin can go super fast on the bikes, so Kaitlyn got to enjoy the ride.
Colin loved it too. They had so much fun. Thanks Amy for taking us. It was a blast.

Our stop in Phoenix AKA visiting my friend Amy

This is my friend Amy and her son Colin. I met Amy when she lived in La Crescenta before she married Brian and moved to San Diego. They moved to Phoenix last year right before they had their baby Devin. So, it worked out perfect for Kaitlyn and I to stop there for a few days on the way home from my brother's house. Thanks for having us guys. We had a blast.
This is Kaitlyn and Colin back in November when they came out to visit. So Silly!
We had so much fun. We went to Amy's mom's house. She was super nice for letting us hang out and ride bikes. Kaitlyn was in heaven. She practiced riding bikes with pedals.
We went to this super fun park in Phoenix that has. It has a train that goes all around the park and a carousel too. It also had a fun playground.
This carousel was a little bit crazy. I don't usually get motion sickness but this one made me a little light headed.
