Wow...looks like you were busy. I'm glad you had a great time, but also glad that you made it back safely. I need to come over sometime and see what you got at rodworks...i'm excited to see (or you could post pictures online...)

Denise said...

looks like a great trip. Fun to see so many family pictures that include you! What a darling family.

Adam and Lisa said...

Sounds busy and fun! We are going to Utah this Saturday - to bad we weren't there the same time!

Becky said...

so fun to have you out here!

and props on finishing this post...i know what a pain they can be with all the pix.

First off.. your hair is so cute. I really love that style on you. Looks fun but still easy to do. Great for kids.

I love all of your pictures of your trip. Looks like such a fun time and glad you were able to do a lot of fun activities. I bet the kids enjoyed it. That is a smart plan, to do a 1 week without Andy and then have him join up with you guys so you can have an extended vacation.

We are headed to Utah/Idaho in 4 weeks, so looking at your pics makes me anxious, although we will only be there 6 days and have to visit 3 families in that time frame.

p.s. Glad you got some time with andy w/o kids!
