Summer Utah Trip

A week after Kristina and Reagan came to stay, we drove out to Utah so we could see everyone. We stayed for a week, and were able to spend time with both of our families. We spent the first half of our trip with Craig's parents and family in Payson, then stayed the second half of the trip with Kreg and Anna.
At the Grotto. One of the only pictures we have as a whole family!

Crossing the one of the many bridges to the grotto. This is one of our favorite hikes when we go to Payson. I think we've been up there 5 times? ha, we love it!
I can't ever get a clear picture of these two, but they are so cute and so happy!

Eli and Oli playing "catch" with a car at the splash pad.
Taking a rest at on the hike that we took up the canyon.
My boys. :))
 After every trip to Utah, we inevitably have the same conversation that often starts with, "Why aren't we living in Utah, both of our families are there! When we're here, we love it and have so much fun!" Maybe someday...

Kristina and Reagan came to visit!

This summer had been so much fun, so there is lots to catch up on! In July Kristina and Reagan came to visit and it was so nice to have them here. Usually when we come visit in Utah, she is coming and going to work or running different errands that need to be done.(She's one busy lady!) So it was fun to have her come play with us since it gave up time to catch up and talk(a lot!).
They both look a little wild in this picture, but this is what these two did for the entire trip here...played! and got into things...and drooled...and talked and talked...and smiled. Reagan is one happy, happy little boy! It's a stark contrast to my serious Owen man.
 Of course, last time we went to Evergreen lake we brought bathing suits. Ha, there's just something about a chuck-full diaper full of river water that just does it for me. So stinkin' cute.

My favorite part about having visitors is taking them to some of our favorite places. So of course we took them to the giant slides and downtown!

 Kristina was so sweet to treat us to the Railroad museum, and lucky for us they were doing a dinosaur exhibit/promotional day as well...some of Eli's favorite things! It was fun to go somewhere new with them too! The only bummer was that the whole time Eli just wanted to go back to the gift shop to play with the little train table they had set up there. Oh well. We still saw some really cool trains and road on one too(which Eli loved.)

I can't tell you how many times we tried to get a picture of all of them together, without any success. Oh well. Here is one of some of my favorite guys!
