Fun in Utah!

As usual, we had a blast in Utah! We did so much fun stuff during our week there. We went for a business recruiting event, but spent a whole week hanging out. It was a much needed break from work and life after Darren finished his oh so "busy season." Check out these pics from the trip:
Isn't my new niece adorable? Her name is Elle and we got to attend her blessing while we were there! Thanks for waiting for us, Michelle and Jon.Joseph played played played with Elle's big sister AlexisWe visited the fire station where a friend of my sister's gave us the best tour ever! Joseph was in heaven! They used the hoseRode in the fire truckAnd tried on the real firefighter equipment!We also got to drive down to Southern Utah for the day to visit Darren's Grandma Williams. She'll be 91 this month and she's still sharp as a tack. She tells such fun stories. We had a great visit.We went to an awesome bouncy house place
And went to an adorable pumpkin patch farm with a mini corn mazeA petting zoo where Joseph fed the ponyAnd Justin loved the goats!It's been such an incredible blessing to go back to Utah so often for our little business trips. Thanks so much Mom, Dad, Jordan, Michelle, Jon and girls for showing us such a good time. We love you so much and we'll be missing you until our next trip out!
