Our Family Trip to UTAH....

We had so much fun going on our family trip out to Utah to see my family. We first went to my Great Grandpa Stewarts cabin up at Sundance. We went bike riding, hiked the Stewart Falls, played croquet, had birthdays, and just had a blast hanging with the fam!

Happy 2nd Birthday Jackson!!!

I made Jackson a baseball cake with cupcakes decorated as baseballs on top. He just loves all kinds of balls. So, I figured this would be great for him.

My sister-in-law, Kristi, and Jackson share the same birthday now, so we celebrated it together. It was so much fun being able to have Kristi come up since she did just have their baby, Karli, two days earlier and had to be at the hospital all the time. It was great to have her be able to come up at least some. Hope everything is going good Kristi.

I don't know if you can tell here, but Jackson had a blast playing with his two cousins Alexa and Nathan with the bubbles he got for his birthday from Alexa.

My nephew, Nathan, sure loves to eat grapes. As you can tell, he has a full mouth.

Jackson just loved being able to spend time with his Grandma and Grandpa Shelley!

Since we were staying at my parents while we were there. One of the nights I was able to go to my sister, Ashleys, softball game. Which I totally loved, since that use to be me out there. Man, thats been such a long time since I've played. To actually think back to the days of pitching fast pitch softball. Wow, It's CRAZY!

My new sister-in-law, Kaitlyn, and my brother Kyle also came to the game with me and my mom.

One of the days we went with my sister, Ashley, my mom, my niece, Alexa, and of course Jackson, me and Dave to Salem pond and had fun feeding the ducks and playing on the playground.

Jackson and Alexa were so funny playing together. Alexa was chasing Jackson here.

Jackson loves to be like his daddy and wear his Star Wars hat that dad "use" to wear.

It was great that while we were there visiting my family, we were able to also be there for my brother, Kyle's wedding. Crazy but true, my new sister-in-law, Kaitlyn Issac is one of my best friends sister. They got married in one of my favorite temples, the Manti Temple, such a gorgeous temple.

Such an adorable couple!

Their reception was at the Issacs residence. It went so well, they had it on the front lawn. They had these snowcones that had fresh fruit and ice cream. So yummy!

This is a picture of me, Jackson and my wonderful Grandma Shelley.

I was so excited to see both of my Amber friends, this is a picture of Jackson with Amber Dahle(Wilsons) son Connor.
