i wanted to share some photos from last week in utah! it’s so funny, because i didn’t bring the camera out with me very much in utah, and so i didn’t think i really took very many photos, if any at all, but of course as i downloaded and went through them i had to laugh, because sure, most are random (what happens when you don’t have the camera handy during most picture worthy moments), but there were still a ton of photos. lol. i get snappy happy. that’s a thing, right?!
we loved getting to spend some time with both my parents and josh’s parents. while we would have loved to see friends, we deliberately didn’t this trip just so we could really maximize the time with our family for the kiddos, which was so good for all of us. a few photos below…
when we left the kids with josh’s parents for literally twenty minutes or so and took josh’s dad’s car out for a spin around snow canyon! that car is a dream!!!! i am completely totally obsessed. sometimes i miss getting to drive since we don’t in the city although i am apparently very rusty behind the wheel, because i totally damaged the car we rented while in utah by scraping the entire side of it against a metal barrier when making a turn in a gas station. i haven’t ever done anything like that before, not even a speeding ticket! fortunately no one was hurt, just the car which is fixable. but man! not on my car game!
eleanor LOVED watering the plants and diligently went about it sometimes twice or three times a day (sorry plants.)
the sleeping mask isn’t there for sleep sake, it’s often an accessory in eleanor’s case. one of the reasons i adore her so!
because we were traveling and because i’ve never seen ice cream made this way, it was worth taking a break from my no added sugar goal to try the new roll with it creamery in provo. such an interesting concept (have been wanting to try 10 below in chinatown for a while now but haven’t managed to get down there on a treat day yet!), so was excited to give this place a try while traveling.
at the new provo city center temple with my little brother isaac who is graduating from high school next week, after we went together with josh!!!!!!!!!
nana is a genius for discovering kinetic sand! the kids had so much fun playing with this stuff. not as messy as regular sand (kind of sticks together, like play-doh a bit, so a little easier to clean up, too!)
my dad pulled out these fun engineering kits for the kids and conrad was obsessed with making this little wheel fly in the air by pressing a button making it spin! they spent so much time in the kitchen doing this over and over again. it was absolutely adorable.
they are twins, seriously. look at their expressions! i am dying. haha!
i will have to share a few more photos from utah soon, because this post was getting too long!
