Wowie! What a vacation...brace yourselves, there are A LOT of pictures!!
We just got back from our 2 week road trip to Utah. We had such a busy time there full of lots of different stuff. We started out obviously in the car...
Isn't he just the sweetest baby? Jordan had his 6 month b-day on our trip, whoa. that when by so fast!
On this trip Justin experienced a lot of FIRSTS!! Here he is at his FIRST water park 7 Peaks in Provo LOVING it!
We spent LOTS of evenings in the pool. I think I went through a whole bottle of sunscreen in a week!
Other things that we did while up at Snowbird that I didn't get shots of, or that I'm waiting to get from family memebers are: the traditional baby shower...this year it was for me and two of Jeff's cousins who had babies in the past year!! It was AWESOME and Jordan now has some clothes that actually haven't been worn by some one else. Jeff took Justin and hiked up to the top of the Snowbird tram with his dad and brother Darren. They all took turns hauling Justin in the backpack and I guess it was a fun trip (I WOULD NEVER DO THAT WITH A TODDLER!) I HAVE hiked it in the past though, for the record. We played BINGO and I won the blackout round...oh yeah! I won a candy bar AND a soda!! Justin thought that was pretty cool. Jeff and I went hot tubbing while Grandpa slept in the room with the boys (thanks grandpa). Every night was full of food and games with cousins and aunts and uncles. This year was a great Snowbird, we're so lucky we got to go. THANKS SO MUCH to Grandma and Grandpa Capell for feeding and housing us in our very own room, it made it so easy for us.
This was also a FIRST for Justin. On our way up to Arimo, ID we stopped to hang out with Jeff's Uncle Kendall and Aunt Bliss. They took us skiing and Justin rode in his FIRST boat! He got to watch mommy and daddy wakeboard and daddy ski. Too bad I left the camera in the car...whoops.
Great Grandma & Grandpa Capell's House
Grandpa Capell is such a fun Great Grandpa. He's 87 this year and is still just truckin along. He took Justin on his FIRST real tractor ride and as you can see Justin was smiling ear to ear.
We spent a day with our friends Annie and Caleb Osmond and Angela, Kayla and Shawn Salazar. We went to Thanksgiving Point for $2 Tuesdays and visited the petting farm...SO WORTH IT! Justin rode his FIRST horse and instantly overcame his immense fear for moving animals. It was crazy how quickly that occurred and he was begging Jeff to ride the BIG horsey! Also while we were here, he rode on his FIRST horse drawn wagon ride.
We were searching and searching for the leopard and just as we were about to give up, he starting pacing the window. Justin got such a rush out of it, he loved being so close to it. One time the leopard just stopped right in front of Justin and stared at him for like a minute! I got this shot during the stare down.
