Utah Trip!

The girls were so excited to go to Utah and see baby Tanno and all the other aunties and uncles!  They packed their own bags, and let me tell you...there was absolutely nothing of use in those bags, but thats okay!

Stopping for a break at the dam at Lake Powell, we walked across the bridge and it gave me the heebie geebies.

Another pit stop, some random river, I can't recall where because we were in the middle of no where!

We spent some time with Cami's inlaws in mount pleasant, Ut.  Josh was kind enough to give Madilyn some lessons in shooting!

The main purpose of this trip was to see my grandma.  My grandpa passed away last November and since my grandma has had to move into a rest home.  She is extremely lonely, so we tried to visit and spend as much time with her as possible.

One thing I didn't get any pictures of was our adventures at Cherry Hill water park.  It was SO fun, tons of extended family was able to come and it was so good to catch up with lots of my cousins that I love and miss so much!

We also went to castle park, this picture does not do it justice.  It was HUGE, you can kind of see how far back it goes if you look closely.  But the girls LOVED it.

But the real hit of the park was this awesome swing!

Maren loved it especially!

We also went to a park in Mt. Pleasant, and they had this great tire swing, you better believe we all took turns on it!

A sad attempt at re enacting our "quad" ride.  a few days before we took the girls out, and it was a hit!

On our way home to Arizona, we stopped in St. George for the night, and went to pizza factory, the red rocks, and of course we did some swimming!

St. George Temple

Eliza just kept stopping to play, it was hard getting her back into the car.

Now a few instagrams, sorry if you have already seen these pictures!

I so wish we could have spent more time in Utah, it was so so fun to see family again.  It is nice knowing I am a tad closer now so I can visit more often.  Coming from Canada and Hawaii was definitely more difficult!  So here is to hopefully another trip in the future!
