Utah or bust

I've been lucky to have quiet a few orders for custom blogs lately. My waiting list is 3 months now! So every available second I have, I'm making blogs. (That's why I haven't posted on here in forever.) So I had a little extra mullah and desperately wanted to go see everyone in UT.

The day after we got back from Portland, Nicole and I loaded up the kiddos and braved the trip alone. The kids were pretty good on the way there. Brynlie was car sick for the first 4 hours, but it was pretty smooth sailing after that. Jeremy's parents were the only ones who knew we were coming. It was so fun to surprise them all. I hadn't been down there for a year and a half!

The day after we got there I got horribly sick. And then the next day Kelson got it. He wouldn't stop throwing up for 2 days. We ended up taking this poor kid to the hospital cause he was so dehydrated. He lost about 5 lbs. So it wasn't the greatest start to our trip, but we still had fun. Bryn LOVED playing with her cousins.

Towards the end of the week we went down to Niki's house to meet little Maddyn. Lauren came down and we got to meet her boyfriend Straton too. And we got to see Jena and her cute little baby bump. We were so busy we didn't get to do half the things we wanted to. I only took a few pictures the whole time! So I need Marilyn and Mindi to send me theirs!

We found thus huge hill in Payson and I tried to teach Brynlie to roll down it. She totally didn't get it unless I held her and rolled with her.

I love and miss Utah! If gas wasn't so dang much I'd go all the time. There are so many fun things to do there. Thank you Marimom, Poppy and Niki for letting us crash at your homes and for feeding us.


  1. The fact that you said,"I miss Utah so DANG Much," shows that Utah is alive and well in your heart still. You are brave Julie, I don't think that I would be brave enough to do that trip without Chris. I traveled alone a lot with Sofia, but I have lost the desire with 2.

  4. Looks like you had a great time! Wish we could have made our schedules mesh to meet up. Brynlie is getting so big - man time flies.
