On the Road...again

We have just returned from a full and fantastic trip to SLC. Although we were only there for 2 full days we managed to visit with everyone that we intended (the Van Wagoner's, the Hays', the Carlson's, the Jibson's, and Ash) plus a fewmore.

Not this guy. He just looked rad.

The girls warmed right up to Gran and Grandpa Lewis. They don't have too much of a choice with Grandma though. She is usually planting kisses before the see her coming.

Blondes stocking up at Discovery Gateway.

We haven't been to the tabernacle since the construction was completed nearly 2 years ago. It's always an amazing sight.

After the weather hit 110 on Phoenix we were grateful to enjoy the cooler temps on Temple Square.

Saturday started out at Hogle Zoo with meeting the Carlson's then checking out the animals with the Jibson's and my family.

Blondie and Jonah hit it off right from the start. They enjoyed sharing their snacks, stroller, and observing the animals together. After spending 3 days together (and bathing), Sunday morning She looked over at Jonah and asked, "What's your name?"

The main purpose of our trip was for the Hyde Family Reunion at Heritage Park. I was so excited to see my extended family and have them meet my little family.

Mae trying to make a good impression on Grandpa.

My grandpa with his blind sister Peggy. She is one of my heroes. She lives her life to the fullest while radiating her joy and love for the Gospel.

My mother and her sister Carol talking about having a Bob Hyde reunion. I think it's going to happen guys.

The girls had had it by the end of the reunion.

We had intended to see Eric's aunt in Sandy, but the girls didn't make it out of the parking lot.

A special shout-out to the Jibson's for allowing us to take over your basement.
Thanks guys!

so many awesome pictures hayley, i love them. is it your camera, you, or both!?! seriously. i know ive asked you about your camera, but have you ever taken classes?

how are the hays-ez? i was hoping to see a picture or two from them since their blog is rarely updated.

i love how ava had no clue who she was bathing with. hilarious!

So cute Hayley! Can't wait to see you guys!

And that's not a good habit for Ava to start. You don't want her making out with boys and then asking them their names. How awkward.

Looks like you guys had a very busy, but fun trip! I really like the picture of the "rad guy" but more importantly, just want to know if he knew you were taking pictures of him? :)
