We just got back a few days ago from a family visit to Utah. This was Gracey's 8th flight and by far the best! She has figured out that we are actually flying and had so much fun looking out the window and eating all of jet blue's yummy snacks! I think if you would have told me 5 years ago that many of my vacations would include Provo, Utah I would have said "Heck No" but apparently, I have matured... and can now appreciate the beauty of Utah! We had so much fun hanging out with all of our family and had an exciting day with everyone at the zoo. We appreciate everyone stopping their lives for our visit!

"Come on Grandma let's get that peacock!"

At the end of our trip we stayed with our friends "The Kennedy's"!
It was wonderful catching up and so much fun watching the girls play together. They are about a month apart. We were glad to see that Amelia isn't reading novels yet or playing chess...maybe next visit:) Thanks for your great hospitality Kennedy's!

Before we left for Utah we had a beach day with my dad. The pictures were so cute I couldn't pass up the opportunity to post them.All the kids are back to school making the beach practically empty...just how we like it!

I decided to spice up "the evening wait" for daddy tonight by turning on a little water...Gracey happily stripped off the clothes but couldn't bare to lose the crown.

Our "baby brother" Cam and his girlfriend came to visit for labor day weekend. On Saturday we drove up to Irvine Spectrum to have dinner with Andrew and Erinn. Cam fell asleep on the way there snuggling with Gracey's blanket. I think Cam needs a soft pink blankie!

Dinner at PF Changs. Gracey has 6 teeth all coming in at once so she stayed perched on my lap all night until....



We loved having Cam and Liz and always look forward to our next visitors!

And who doesn't love presents? Andrew and Erinn bought Gracey the cute little outfit she has on, some adorable clips and her favorite books! It is not so bad being the only baby in the family!
