Utah Trip

Janel was going through the temple for her first time, so Shaun and I headed to Utah for the weekend. We decided to bring Miley with us for a couple of reasons. 1)She still flies free. 2)She never gets one on one attention from us. That's just what happens when you are the third kid! 3)It would make Grammy's weekend at our house a whole lot easier!

She was a crack up at the airport. She did not want to be carried, and she HAD to drag her backpack everywhere. If we even touched it or looked like we were going to pick it up a fit would ensue! 

She LOVED the moving walk ways. Our flight was delayed a bit so we burned about an hour of time walking on them. She would get about half way down one and then turn around and start walking the opposite way on it. Everyone who passed us commented on how cute she was and we even had people getting out of their seats at the gate to come and tell us! She was being so funny!

Her first steps on a plane!

Daddy caught up on his Juan Pablo gossip! I'm not kidding, this is his man crush!

Once we got to Utah and got settled in, we put Miley to bed and played games with family! We stayed up sooo late and then Miley woke up coughing and didn't really get back to sleep which means I was up almost all night. That made doing a session at the temple the next morning, uh, interesting!!! Oh well, it was nice to be there to support Janel.

Mt. Timpanogus temple!

 After the temple, we headed to a luncheon at Hannah's parent's house and played some more games.

Then we headed back to the hotel to swim. She loved having her Daddy all to her self!

On Sunday, we headed to church with Hannah and Norah and then hung out at Ryan and Hannah's apartment since we had to check out of the hotel. We played some more games while the girls napped! 
(Can you tell we like to play games when we get together?)

Miley and Norah are saying goodbye to each other. They didn't really love each other, but give it another two years and they will be BFF's!

Shaun got to eat at Cafe Rio one more time, (for his second time in 2 days)

And then we boarded our plane to head home! I was excited to see the big kids!
When we walked through security, Gage came running up to me and gave me a big hug and said, "Oh, Mommy! I thought you were never coming home!" Talk about making a mom feel guilty for leaving her kids. Ouch!

And on the home front, these were the only 3 pictures that I got from Grammy all weekend!
Gage has been pretending to be a baby for a couple of weeks now and has been begging me to let him sleep in Miley's crib. This was the perfect opportunity for him since Miley was gone. He slept in there both nights! What a goof!

Maisey had her first basketball game!

Learning to dribble!

I reallllllly should watch Pablo and his yumminess. I just cant seem to justify watching that show! I think I just hate it when women embarrass themselves like that.(heaven knows I embarrass myself enough!) Maybe I should start liking crazy train wrecked shows and just have a good laugh. I've watched the bachelorette here and there maybe I should give this one a try. Glad you had a great trip!
