A great vacation to Utah part one!

Whew! coming home from a trip is more work than going and you don't have the fun trip to look forward too anymore! But my house is relatively picked up, the washing machine and dryer are doing their best to get caught up and we now have food in the house. I have so many pictures of our fun trip you are probably going to be hearing about it in three parts. Now if you don't want a little tour of our adventures come back tomorrow and I will show you one of my gorgeous swaps I received while I was gone. However, I have to stick some of these pictures in here because the idea that this is something of a journal for my family and someday I might actually have it put in a book is one of my justifications for blogging. So bear with me please! Or like I said, come back tomorrow!
Well the day after we got to my Mom and Dad's house it was Joshua's birthday. This is the great cake my mom made him. James is taking a tour through Candyland. Cute huh? He loved it!

One of the things my kids had to do was visit the Treehouse Children's Museum in Ogden. This is what my kids would look like if they formed their own firestation, something they may have to do if this state doesn't stop igniting itself! Course if Joshy is driving we are all probably in big trouble.

Brittany loves this room full of dolls and always has to pick the best case to have her picture taken in front of. Joshy snuck in there right before the click!

We had some great play dates with old friends. This is Matthew with his buddy Dallen. I loved that they never skipped a beat, just picked up where they left off playing last summer.
Brittany and her friend Baylee had a dress-up tea party in Grandma's fabulous dress-ups. I was playing with the color settings to make it look vintagey. I think I will send this one to her friend.



This was the goodbye hug when Baylee had to leave. It had me so choked up I was almost ready to call the moving company!



**Before I forget I was supposed to choose a winner for my giveaway during Vanessa's tea party. The lucky winner according to the random generator is Jenny from the Polka Dot Pixie! I am a bit intimidated to send her off, Jenny makes amazing paper mache and clay dolls, I love her work!

Looks like a great time! Oh goodbyes always make me tear up. How sweet the two of them are.

Looks like fun, I have yet to take my kids to "The Treehouse Musuem" even though recently, I have had about 5 people tell me I MUST. Maybe next week . . .

What an awesome cake! Love Brittany's hair, too. I'm so glad we have the blog to keep us connected while you're way over there!
