Remember When...

We spent a week in Utah.
In May.
It's (almost) July.
But that's just the way my summer is going (more on that later).

I didn't even take my camera (terrible I know) so thank you to the rest of the family for documenting our trip for us.

Noah and Paul did a lot of hiking (Grandma too).

We all did a lot of biking, or bike trail walking, or falling asleep in strollers depending...

We spent some time at the Children's Museum, always a favorite with my kids.

Especially this one, who loves the "dramatic" play.

We went to Boondocks for the first time, it was a huge hit.

The only thing that could top that is Uncle Jeff's boat : )
Here's the captain, himself.

The water was freezing and Alex was the only kid to get in that day - it lasted a whole 15 seconds.

Uncle Jeff is really cool.

Your cool too, Paul.

And Avery is just cute.
(Not sure my in-laws would agree, after a few evenings alone with this clingy girl...)

The best part of the trip was, of course, all the cousin and family time!

6 Gunn grandkids (and one on the way!)
Not an easy picture to get.

Speaking of which...
We got family pictures taken while we were there.
It was a marathon event and we all...couldn't wait for it to be over.
But it was worth it for these:

Thanks for setting it up Lezli.
And for paying Noah to cooperate : )
It (sorta) worked.

Paul and I also got to see a few of our closest friends while we were in town,
Andrew and Amanda (she took the family pics!)
Mike and Anna (whom we hadn't seen in years!).

We ate great all week long.

I got to spend a day with my sister and her cute kids
even a couple of hours with my parents, who were leaving town just as we were arriving.
it just so happened to be my birthday that morning.

It was a great week that went by all too quickly and we miss everyone already.
Thank you Gunn Family, we love you!

Great pic's Summ. Noah seems like he is cool with the camera now, or did you have to bribe him? or threaten him by almost tossing his scooter in the street? Looking forward to seeing you soon.

I love all the pictures. How fun that Avery has so many cousins her age - 2009 was a big baby year. I also love the father/son shots and Alex being dramatic - (that's all the time isn't it?) I miss you all!

I think I'm going to cry - we miss you! XOOX

Mike said...

It was great to see you guys! Maybe one day we'll live at least in the same country. Lets make sure it's not a couple of years before we see each other again.

Wow, those family pictures are gorgeous, your kids are so adorable. I love that Avery has reddish hair, she looks like she is such a happy, happy baby.
