Vacation 2011 -- Utah

After spending a week with Stephanie's family in Washington, we spent this last week with my family in Utah. We had originally planned on starting off the week with a hike up to the Y in Provo, but a mild case of food poisoning struck and I was in no condition to hike the Y alone, much less with a toddler strapped to my back!

Luckily the effects of the food poisoning were gone pretty quickly, and we still had plenty of time to hang out with the family. We ate at the Creamery on 9th with Mom and Dad and Laura, Michele reserved a pool and clubhouse for a family home evening get-together (complete with a game of Nerts at the end!), and we joined Juli's and Michele's families at Temple Square for a visit to the children's portion of the Church History museum. Back at Mom and Dad's house, we did some gardening, watched some movies, played more games, and spent lots of time in front of Dad's laptop paging through his his screensaver with family history pictures.

As always, the fun is better captured in pictures than in words.

We're home safe in Iowa now, and although I am completely sick of driving, we really enjoyed spending some time with family and taking a break from our normal routine.
