Hey everyone! Eric and I just got back from an awesome trip to Utah. It was a crazy busy week, we hardly even slept, but it was totally worth it. Here is a detailed day to day report! Hope you enjoy our pics!


The first day we got there, we went over to Amy's and played Annie-Innie-over! Anyone heard of it? My fam loves it. You through a ball over the roof, and the first team to catch it three times, runs to the other side, and tries to tag someone with the ball, if you get tagged, you have to go on the other team! Eric was all alone for a sec, so Carson...aka Spiderman... went to go help him out!


HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FOOD FAMILY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My mom makes about 300-400 of these popsicles
every year! I love them!

I took some red, white, and blue gel to spike the boys' hair!
then we busted out the face paint!

They brought a big bubble machine thingy!

My Uncle Shane is an army recruiter, and he was in charge of the games for the reunion this year, so he had all the little kids go through a little boot camp training!
they had to put on the army equipment, run through the tubes, army crawl under a little obstacle course, throw granades into a box, and hit down a can with a BB gun!

After the party, a bunch of us went to play V-Ball!



Oh my gosh, it was so hot on Thursday! We all went to the zoo, and it was crazy hot, but still fun. We had to take lots of breaks in the shade, and everyone decided to cool off in the pond.

Utah's Hogle Zoo!

The zoo was lots of fun! It was so dang hot, so lots of the animals were sleeping, but it was still lots of fun.

we were in the reptile house, and Adi and Logan were sick of their strollers, so we let them run around a little. Adi rushed around the corner, so excited to be free, and there was a huge snake cage, like two inches from her face! She looked up and gasped, and came running back! Poor little girl!!!

Eric got tired of pulling the boys, so he took a turn in the wagon!

After the zoo, Stace came and picked us up, and we went to Salt Lake
These are my old room mates from good old Raintree Apts in Provo! We met up at the Gateway for dinner. Jana, Kathryn, and I, all met our husbands in the BYU 134th ward! Sweet raintree romance man. From Left to Right it's Jana and Jordan (Jordan was our home teacher) Eric and I, Nicole, Stacey, and Kathryn and Austin.

Friday at Flaming Gorge

Our friends Dan and Janelle invited us to Flaming Gorge for the day. Janelle's family was there with their boat and wave runners, so it was so much fun. The water was clean and blue, and the scenery was beautiful. We had such a good day, thanks to the Vanderdoes's!!! Seriously guys, thanks so much!


Carson thought this was the best day ever, because we got to go swimming at
The Roy Aquatic Center! We couldn't get the kids out of the water long enough to
take their picture, so we just got one of us.

After the pool, the Boam's,came over to play some games!


Ya, I know it's blurry, but isn't it a pretty view?

This is the spot at my house where we would always take pictures of my dates for
dances and stuff, so I just had to get one last one with my hubby!
