Utah Fall "TRIP"

We visited Utah again... but this time is was a total surprise to Travis' family! It was awesome surprising his mom (she almost dropped her newest, adorable grandbaby out of shock) and the rest of the family was so excited! We love surprises, so ya never know when we'll show up;)

Utah in the fall is so nice. The weather is crisp and cool, perfect for a hike! We spent one morning at the "elk's house" (a.k.a mountains) enjoying the beautiful scenery. Annabelle kept saying the elk were "taking a nap or hiding." Then she'd laugh and say, "Annabelle find 'em!"

Visiting Utah was a "TRIP" instead of a "VACATION." A funny family friend classified a "vacation" as when you come away feeling rested & rejuvenated because you left your children safely as home. Then there's a "trip," one with children, a.k.a. you leave having had fun & enjoyed it, but you're more tired than when you left. Haha! Utah was absolutely wonderful and since Annabelle struggled to sleep because she was so excited we came home utterly exhausted, hence our trip!!

Enjoy some pictures of our amazing visit to Utah!

Playing with Aunt Danners at the Park- Annabelle's first piggy-back ride!

We met Danielle's "Prince Johnny"
We finally met "Prince Johnny!" Travis thinks he has some resemblance to Prince Harry, so the name has stuck.  When we asked Annabelle if she liked Johnny she said, "Annabelle touched him!" haha
We made gumbo (yummy!) then went ice skating... a first for Annabelle!
It was adorable and fun to watch her try out her new tiny skates.

 The ice-skate trio (aren't hers adorable!?)

Visiting the old roomies & their families!
Sara & Chad (Cute Lucy was asleep)
P.S. I'm jealous of their new house! Ahh, One day...

Uncle Keith & the famous "BOYS"

Hiking Squaw Peak

Luckily we were hiking on the sunny, but windy, mountain because right behind us there was a huge storm on Mt. Timpanogos!
We met Lyndsey, Coco, & Rowen for lunch at Kneaders our last day. We miss them sooo much!

This picture will be a reality in for us in just 5 1/2 months! Here comes baby number two!

That's all the pictures I took, but we saw all of Travis' family at the Tolman Fall Party, Taylor & Eva, Alyssa (Danielle's roommate)... fun fun trip!
