Utah Trip - Part 1

One week ago, we returned to Missouri after a whirlwind trip visiting family in Utah.  We spent the first half of our vacation with the Call family, and there was not one minute of down time!! We were so happy to introduce our sweet little Cole to his great-grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.  Here are photos documenting our crazy, non-stop trip!

Chris ran his first, full marathon and he did GREAT!  This first photo is around Mile 22 . . . and he's still looking strong :)

Looking pretty happy with himself at the finish line ;)

Jess ran the half-marathon with her sister, Brittany, and a couple of her friends, Stephanie and Melanie.  Will, our brother-in-law, also did the half-marathon with us.  We sure missed those who intended to run the race and weren't able to join us - Love you Dad and Nate!

Connor holding Grandpa's hand and a balloon - and he couldn't be happier!

This was the day of the marathon (which is my excuse for the sweats and make-up less face - eek!), but I had to put in this adorable picture of all the cousins snuggling together and reading "Toy Story"

Such a beautiful little expression on Cole's face while he enjoys the outdoors with Aunt Britt :)

Connor riding daddy's shoulders at the Hogle Zoo

Pure delight on Connor's face while he does one of his favorite things - RUN!!!
All of the cousins just loved running around and chasing each other :)

Cole was wiped out after a long day at the zoo - but Grandma is in heaven :)

Britt is everyone's favorite playmate in the backyard!

We went to the farm at Thanksgiving Point - the kids got to see and pet all sorts of animals, as well as ride a wagon and a pony (I'm afraid the carousel at the mall will never hold the same fascination again!)

These last two photos were taken on our final night with the Call family, which was spent at South Fork Park in Provo Canyon.  We had so much fun with everyone, and we can't wait to come back and do it all over again . . . hopefully very soon!

Part 2 of the Utah trip will follow SOON :)
