Stress release

After all the crud we went through with the flood and being sick and then the craziness of birthday parties and baby blessings we needed a break. Saying we needed a break is an understatement. We weren't functioning very well physically or mentally. So we took off for a couple days. We headed to park city the first night and stayed in an awesome hotel. We did some shopping at the outlets and just chilled at the hotel. The next day we headed to the zoo and met up with my sister Amber and her kids. The Zoo was insanely crowded but we just took our time and enjoyed.

 We spent the rest of the day playing in the pool and relaxing. The next morning we got up and headed to temple square. I love temple square. It's so peaceful and quiet. Just totally relaxing. We went to the church headquarters building and went up to the observation deck and saw Salt Lake from above.
Remember how I said AnDee cant take a pic without posing anymore...

We have to catch her off guard to get one were she isnt squinching up her face or squatting with her hands on her knees. Silly girl 

We then walked down to the gateway mall (can I tell you I love walking places? I enjoy a walk much more than a car ride) and let buggy play in the fountains and kinda just wandered around.

We didn't do anything we haven't done before. Nothing crazy or exciting, but it was probably the best trip we have ever taken as a family. So relaxing and fun and we got to just enjoy each other. I'm so glad we went.


  1. Okay, I love her hat!! And I'm extremely jealous of your relaxing trip. I think our trip will be relaxing after we drive for two days :/. But did you read that my mom will watch my kids while we hang out? Awesome! I should move away more often. (haha, just kidding mom) But Yes, we most definitely need to hang out. We can hang out when my mom watches the kids, and when she doesn't, 'cause I want to meet this Pep character :) and see AnDee again. I think she and I will get along famously... :)

  2. One of my most favorite laid back trips was a trip to SLC. Close to home, so the ride was quick, and lots to see.
