Our Trip to Utah

We had such a fun trip to Utah to see all of my family, a few friends, and a brother of Daves. We did SO... much in a week. It's been over a year since we've been back to Utah so it was fun seeing everyone. We spent time going up to my familys cabin, hiked up to stewart falls, went to Wingers (such good sticky fingers), went to the dinosaur park and farm area at Thanksgiving Point, went swimming all at the pool, Chuck E Cheese, and lots more. It's always so fun going home to see family and friends and just spend time together. Thanks fam! We had a blast with all of you.

Hiking up to Stewart Falls

My sister-in-law, Kaitlyn, made such a yummy apricot pie. We were all impresses with her cooking skills. Since they've been only married a year and she made it just right. What a great cook her mom must have taught her to be.

Jackson had so much fun being with his cousins Alexa and Nathan. They all got along and played so well together. They just loved running around chasing each other. This was so funny because when we went down to the ponds. All of a sudden Nathan tackled Alexa. It took us all by surprise.

It was fun also seeing Daves brother, Kevin and his family. We got to ride on a hayride, Jackson rode on a horse, they saw all kinds of animals, and the kids went to jail.

It was fun seeing Jackson and Megans new cousin Rusty who they hadn't seen yet and neither had we. Its hard being far from family, but we do what we have to in the situation we're in. Someday we'd of course like to move closer to the west. But, for now we really enjoy the people, ward, and fun things we get to do out here in Indiana.

Cincinnati Reds Baseball Game

Here are a few pictures of us going to the REDS game in Cincinnati, Ohio. It's so nice to have so many things close by to go to like this. It only takes a hour and a half to go to a few big cities in different states like Ohio and Kentucky. That's what is so different here than in the west. Megan and Jackson just loved it! Jackson still is talking about how he wants to go to another baseball game.

It was fun seeing the fireworks they did after the game, even though they lost. It was the loudest and longest show we've ever been to. We seriously could feel our seats shake it was so loud. We really liked it, but I think Jackson got a little scared of it.
