UTAH 2009

We had such a good time this summer in Utah. We are having family withdrawals already:( We are so lucky to have such great family on both sides. Thank you all for a wonderful trip!!!

Here are the highlights:

Liberty Jail, Liberty MO
Brett's brother and his family: Jason, Katrina, Gavin and Wyatt


Oquirrh Mountain Temple Open House
My brother Josh and his wife Megan

Grandpa and Roe's Wedding

St. George
with Joshie and Megan

Gardner Village Pony Ride
Tobe didn't want to ride--he was just fine to watch

Silver Lake at Brighton

I love the picture of Joshie and Tobe on the Egg Ride. Joshie is soon to be a father of twins so he is living up his childhood while he can:) We love Uncle Joshie!!!

Boating at Utah Lake

Lunch with the Tyler Family
photos taken by Kami Bigler
we have been friends with the Tyler's forever. Our Mom's are best friends so we always love to get together and remember the good ol' days:)

Water Party at Dawnie's House
the kids loved playing with the face painting markers and as you can see I just let them go to town. Woah!!

Visiting Grandma

We didn't get much of this during the month:)

Slip and Slide at Erica's house

The Road Trip Home (not sure I'd call this a highlight:)

Aly kept unbuckling so we had to tape her buckle together. She was mad and kept telling us to "go away:{"

Ashley drove home with us so we took her around Indy

It's good to be home but always hard to leave our cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, sisters, and brothers:(

We love and miss you all...until next summer!!!!!!

Wow, this was a busy busy trip for you guys! I'm so glad I got to see you while you where here. That last picture is beautiful! I want to visit you in Indianapolis too.

Dawn said...

We stayed busy...
I think your life is just as busy in Indiana...

Miss You ALL!!

Indiana Smith Family said...

Wow, you guys stayed busy!! I'm glad you had a good time, and I am glad you are home!! Let's get together.

Jane is looking so grown up. Her hair is very, very long and beautiful. Tobe is like a little man. Full of sweetness and silliness. Alyson looks like a little teddy bear. So cuddly and cute. You have adorable kids. Thanks for the post and pictures. Your trip was certainly eventful. I am glad you were able to go back to Utah and spend time with your family. I had to laugh at the road trip photos. You looked as though you were packed to the ceiling with stuff. And the tape on the buckle was funny (I have been there before). Glad you all made it home in one piece.

I am glad to hear you are already planning to come back next summer. I am sure a little less eventful next year and your kids will be one year older. They get easier every year. It was so fun to have you here so I could get my fix. I miss "my babies". Also, the family just feels complete when you are home. Wish we could get mom to come visit soon too. Miss you.

You must need a vacation from your vaction! Just kidding, but it looks like an action packed adventure. It sure looks like you guys had a blast!

Steve and Mona said...

That was quite the trip! I know you always have a ton of people to see but if you ever stop by St. George again give us a call we'd love to see you guys! Congrats on surviving the trip home, so hard to get back into reality.

WOW!!!! You guys have been all over the place. I bet you've had a blast. Love the pics!

I so need to talk to you sometime about adjusting to this whole moving away from the family thing since I know you can definitely relate!!!
