Utah trip

We went to Utah this past week and had such a fun time with family! 

We flew from Long Beach and love the airport because it's super small and you actually walk down some stairs outside to get off and on! Jack was loving all of the big planes! I don't think he realized we were actually on one!

The first day we went to the Farmington Station with my mom. They have the cutest little eating area where we sat and ate Zupas while Jack was just enthrawled  with the fountain. He can't ever sit still to eat a meal, so he ate some mango off my salad and then had dessert with Grammy. She spoils him. 

We had a fun little get together with our family for Jacks 2nd birthday! I can't believe he will be 2 in a week! We had all of his grandparents come and even some aunts, uncles and cousins! He calls most of them Grammy and papa but my dad loves to be called Papa Wheeler (pop a wheeler.... Motorcycle nut) and Melissa is called Gigi by her other grandkids so that's what Jack calls her too. He got lots of fun things! Books, a big goofy stuffed animal, a huge floor puzzle, church clothes, swim suits, and a cute little flute that slides to make silly sounds. He had such a fun time at his party! He woke up at 4:30 that morning and didn't sleep until a nap around 10. He skipped his afternoon nap and had 4 cupcakes that day. So he was a bit crazy!

The next day my dad and Connie got sealed in the Draper temple! I got to sit with my dad which was so special for me. Afterward we took picture outside the temple and my little explorer went to town! He kept saying "Mell the flowers!" (Sniff) "mm das good!" Haha he is such a sweet boy! 

On Sunday we were able to take the neighbors golf cart around the neighborhood and had so much fun! Jack loved riding around and kept saying "mommy crazy driver!" We went to my parents stake center down the street and drive all over the grassy field. They had a few bumps and we loved flying lover them! We were all laughing and having such a fun time! Brooklyn said "these are such fun memories!" 

We got shaved ice pretty much every day we were there. Jack is such a moocher when it comes to sugar. He kept saying "mommies!" "Bookies!" Haha he got his fill for sure! 

We went to my Dad's house the night before we left and Jack had so much fun playing in his yard! He has a front yard, then a back fenced in part where some chickens live. Jack played in there the entire time just following the chickens. Then they got out and he followed them into the front yard! There were also some wild ducks that flew in and just let Jack follow them around everywhere! The grossest part is Jack kept climbing the ladder to the dirty chicken coop. Sadly my phone memory was full so I didn't get a picture if all of this. 

On the last day we were there we went to a trampoline gym! I haven't had that much fun in a long time. We did backflips into the foam pit, we jumped on a huge bubble, and even slid down a big blowup slide 500 times. We had so much fun!

Sadly our trip had to come to an end. We had so much fun playing with our family! Jack hardly slept a wink and had a cold while we were there, but he was a party baby! He picked up "das mine!!" Which I was not thrilled about and he also started talking much quicker. He's growing up so fast and I can't believe how incredibly sweet he is. He kisses and loves everyone he sees. Such a sweet boy! We love our family so much and are sad to be back home. Hopefully we will see them again soon!
