Good Times in Utah

Sophie, Jake, & I spent last weekend in Salt Lake City to celebrate Jake's grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. Sophie & I were fortunate enough to be able to fly there with Grandma Kim while Jake, his dad, & his brother Sam drove.

Sophie fell asleep as we rose into the air, and woke up as we lowered back to the ground. Cutie, huh? Once we got to our hotel, we changed our clothes and headed right to Raging Waters water park.

Sophie was an absolute angel there. She loved hanging out on her quilt, playing in the kiddie pool, trying to eat the grass, and just spending time with everyone. She even managed to fall asleep for a little bit in the afternoon.

(don't worry-this slide looks a lot steeper than it really is)

The next day we headed up Big Cottonwood Canyon, and had a picnic with almost the entire family on Jake's mom's side.

Sophie had a great time there too. She was quite popular among the little girls.

We tried to convince her to take a nap in her Pack-n-Play by blocking off some outside stimulation with towels, but as you can see, she didn't fall for our trick.

The next day was our last full day there. We decided to just hang out all day. We went to Gateway and watched the kids play in the water, drove around some cool neighborhoods in Salt Lake, ate dinner with Jake's brother Adam & sister-in-law Michelle, and then headed over to visit our friends Mike & Makell.

Mike & Makell have a kitten and the kitten and Sophie loved each other, even though it isn't really apparent in this picture.

We had a great time, and traveling with Sophie was quite uneventful, so we may just do it again sometime.

How lucky to have a good baby for the flight. All Gracie ever wanted to do was run all over the place. and also, sophie is so cute.

I think that cat slipped Sophie some liquor, as she appears to be drunk. It looks like a fabulous weekend with below 100 degree temps. What more could you ask for.

I've heard great things about the Raging Waters there! I love taking the kids to the Gateway to play in the fountains. How fun for you to spend this time with your family.
