Fun in Utah

We just got back from another fun visit to Utah. Unfortunately, we had to leave Darren at home. It was supposed to be a work trip, and then at the last minute, he had to stay for work. But I'm glad the kids and I still went. We had a blast as you can see. Joseph loves to play with his cousin Alexis. Every morning he'd ask when she was coming over. And you should see the way we works his Grandma. He'll try to quietly go to her after I've told him no about something to see if he can get a different answer. Which he always does unless I overhear it and inform Grandma of my verdict. He and Alexis keep her so busy because they want her to star in all their playing and they literally tell my sister and I to leave. Apparently, we just get in the way. Justin was only a momma's boy the first day. After that, he was used to all the new faces and was happy with everyone. My mom was jealous because he seemed to prefer my dad. Thanks for the good time, Andersons and Jensens!

Joseph mastering the big slide at the fun play place we went to.
Justin taking a bath in the sink after one of those super messy biter biscuits. Bathtime is his favorite.
Joseph loved playing in all the snow. Grandpa built a sled slide in the front yard, it was great!

Those are some adorable pictures of my boys and I'm so glad they had a great time in Utah. I'm jealous of that snow! I didn't realize Darren didn't get to go. Wow, how was it with two kids alone on the plane? You are a trooper.
Love you all and miss you!

so fun! I too am sad that we couldn't get together. You wouldn't have wanted to hang out with me any way. I got sick and didn't want to do anything but lay around. I can't believe how much Joseph looks like Darren and Justin looks just like you.

Seriously, how do you do it with 2 kids on a plane?! I go crazy with 1!

Those are such cute pictures! I love the one with Joseph and Alexis...they are such cute cousins.

And Justin in the bath is adorable! BRING THEM TO COME SEE ME!!!! Of course, that involves another plane ride...

We had a blast with you guys! Alexis still asks about you every time we go to Grandma's!

I love the picture of Joseph and Alexis, so adorable! They look like great buds! I can't believe how much you look like your dad Jill! Definitely see the resemblance. I'm glad you had a good time, we missed you at the party we had over here for John. Another time though! We're actually going to Utah in just a few weeks, I'm hoping Caleb will be like Justin and only be a momma's boy for a day! Really cute pictures Jill!
