Utah

Two weeks after Washington, the kids and I were on our way to Utah. My nephew's baptism was this month and the day after was the Christensen family reunion. The kids and I wanted to go early to spend more time with cousins.
We went to Tooele to spend a few days with Sean and Sam in their new house. It was my first time in Tooele...such a cute little town with some really pretty views!


 All the kids before church
Sean and Sam have bunnies and my kids LOVED holding them.
One night we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows. It was fun. Eli cracks me up with his Martinelli's and hot dog. 
This was at Parker's Park.


 Devin's Dugout
All three of my kids are in love with Ruby. But I think Devin loves her the most. He couldn't get enough of her. Lyla, for some reason, can't remember her name is Ruby and calls her Rosie all the time. 


Sam and I took picture of Ruby. Here are a few that I liked. She has the prettiest eyes!

We had a party for all the cousins with summer birthdays. 
Wednesday we left Tooele and drove to Salt Lake to stay with Michelle and Justin. Devin had been asking me all week for a cone at Macy's. He got the ultimate which was SO much ice cream! 
Friday was Parker's baptism. We hung out in the morning...that night we had a dinner and Parker opened presents. I copied my Mom and made him a CTR towel.


That night was the baptism It was such a special day! Michelle and Justin gave the talks and did a great job. It was very personal, which I loved. So happy for Parker and love him so much!









The next day was the Christensen family reunion. I really only took a few pictures. They always have it at this park and I just think it is beautiful!

Thanks for the pictures Val! When I see your pictures I realize how pathetic my phone is at taking pictures. I need an upgrade. It was a fun weekend!
