Utah trip Summer 2009

The kids and me headed to Utah for our annual summer trip to visit my family on August 15th. Mikael flew in a day early to surprise me and arrived August 19th we all flew home together on the 24th. We had a lot of fun adventures planned and everyone had a great time! Lagoon, Hogal Zoo, Swimming, Disney Days, Shopping, food and tons of FUN!! Here are some highlights...

My neice Bailey and my bestest friend Ciara hanging out poolside at Murray Rec Pool

Little Family pic Mikaila is missing in action swimming in the pool of course!
That girl loves the water!

We went to Disney Days at the Gullivan Center and Mikaila wanted her face painted like a Dinosaur, this is the end result I'm not sure it's a dinosaur but Mikaila LOVED it!

Here is my brother Wade and his baby Ryder who is now 4 months old. There hanging out at Lagoona beach!

I love her expression in this photo. She was so excited to ride the rides at Lagoon!

Evarlie and Mikaila riding the boats. Mikaila was protective of her bell and was NOT letting Evarlie ring it. I don't think Evarlie even noticed she had just woken up from a nap and wasnt very happy but they still look so cute!

Isaak's first time on a Merry Go Round! He liked it but was really just watching everyone else. Don't you like that my head looks like it's sitting on top of Isaaks arm...oops!

I had to include this pic. Mikael played in a softball game two days before he flew out and injured his knee so when we went to Hogal Zoo he rented a motorized wheelchair so he didnt have to hobble around the zoo. What a great idea! He said that's the only way to do the zoo...and the kids loved it too!

Giraff's are my favorite animal at the zoo so I had to include this picture. Besides they had a baby giraff and it was so cute!!

We really did have a great time hanging out with Family and Friends!! We can't wait to do it again next year...but maybe without all the drama!

Washington County Fair

A friend of Mikael's said she wanted to take the kids and me to the fair. Which I thought was a great idea because with Mikael working non stop lately I wouldn't have to take them by myself! So Saturday we headed to the County Fair for rides, animals and lots of fair food!!

Mikaila LOVES to ride the Carousel and it was the first thing she did when we got there

This little man is a people watcher he was totally content just hanging out in the stroller watching everyone else

We also took Mikael's niece Courtney with us so she rode on the roller coaster with Mikaila and it's a good thing she did. It scared her she held on to Courtney for dear life!

Afterwords she rode the Alligator ride this was more her speed!

Then we went over to check out the farm animals this goat got upclose and personal with Isaak. He was so excited to have the goat right at his eye level.

By the end of our 4 1/2 hours at the fair Isaak was tuckered out!! He passed out on the way to the car

Somewhere between all the fun we ate corndogs and elephant ears and snocones and icecream!! We had so much FUN a the fair. It has been years since I have gone to a fair and I can't wait to take them to the State Fair next month!
