Utah Wrap Up

We just returned from our week-long trip to Utah. Since we're still of the "freaky new parents" variety, we didn't dare try anything too crazy. Mostly we hung out in Midway and relaxed. Since there's not much I love more than a summer's evening in Utah, this was easy.

Rhett was able to meet his cousins (on my side) for the first time. He's still a bit young to enjoy them, but I think they enjoyed him.

Some of the other highlights include: a trip to Cabela's in an answer to my nephew's prayer. Visiting old friends and even older family. Trip to the Park City and its outlets. Trip to SLC's farmers' market. Getting a hair cut and color (pics later). Swimming and hot tubbing. A baby who seemed to be a natural at flying.

The lowlight was: running what-was-supposed-to-be-8K-but-ended-up-being-an-8-miler. Sigh. Next time we'll find an easier-to-find race to run. I was just happy Chuck didn't puke in my dad's car.

A note about Rhett's headband. Since giving birth to a boy, I've been slightly jealous about all the headband-ery that I'm missing. All it takes is one look at the very top picture to see how cute Emmy's headband is. So I set out to find one that would be suitable for a boy, and what you see above is what I found. I'm in love with it.

Gretchen said...

Yeah, for real e, that headband is WAY cool. And i'm not a fan of head-squisher baby headbands. But that one is stellar.

Sandra said...

Sounds like you guys had a fun trip. I have to agree with everyone; that headband is pretty darn cute.

Melissa said...

I love the picture with your dad and Rhett!

And man, what I wouldn't give for a summer evening in Utah. It's about 12:30 a.m. here and still about 95 degrees.

Wow, Rhett is getting so big and cuter every day! Love the sweatband...I would totally have to do the same thing. Although it might be kinda nice not always have to try to make everything so cutesy!
