Our trip to Utah was tons of fun and we took so many pictures--we may have to do installments or this could be the longest post ever! So here we go.
We planned this trip because Jim's brother Tim and wife Ashley are the new proud parents of baby Ian. In this case however, "proud" also translates to "sleep deprived". Ian is a beautiful healthy baby boy, and he is so cute! We all really enjoyed holding and rocking him during our stay with Tim and Ashley. We look forward to watching Ian grow - he seems to get cuter every day! Congratulations Tim and Ashley!
Jim's Mom and Dad drove cross country to visit their new Grandson - now I hear you asking, "That's a long way? Why didn't they just fly?" Well, the reason is because they are really nice parents. We recently bought a car from Jim's grandma, and Jim's parents were kind enough to drive it all the way from New York to Utah for us!! It's not actually a brand new car, but for all the world it looks like one!! We are so thankful to Grandma Muz for selling it to us and we've really enjoyed it!!
While we were in Logan, Mom, Dad, Jim, and Amy took a nice hike up in Logan canyon. The trail was supposedly only 1.3 miles long, although we all severely doubted that measurement by the end. What they don't tell you is that there is a fair portion of the trial (not, that's NOT a typo) that seems to go straight up. However, the view was absolutely beautiful and the wind caves (which were actually made by water) were very cool. It's definitely worth the uphill slog!!
The next stop on our weird, wild vacation was a trip down to Nephi, UT where we met up with Amy's side of the family. It was really great because all of Amy's immediate family managed to be there, as well as a few aunts and uncles, and Amy's Grandma. It was great to see everybody, and we had so much fun!! It's always amazing to see how fast the grandkids (ok, nieces and nephews to us) grow up, and this trip was no exception. We also got to see Baby Bailey for the first time - she was only 2 months old, and very cute!!
So that was the majority of our trip - we also have a few more pictures to show from the journey home, but those will have to wait for another time!! Phew!! If you made it this far, give yourself a pat on the back. And an ice-cold beverage! You've earned it!
