Our Utah Trip

We have had a great two weeks with family in Utah. We stayed the first week with Minda's parents in the North Ogden area. The boys had fun with Papa and Moma doing all sorts of things.
Riding the big bikes with Papa
Papa's new tractor- the boys thought the ride was too bumpy but I think they thought the hydrolic arm was cool.

Nathan hung out with Moma while the bigger boys were playing with Papa.

We took the new Frontrunner train from Ogden to Salt Lake and hung out in Temple Square.

Jacob and Papa on the train
Samuel, Nathan and Moma on the train.
We visited a lot of family. Here we are with Grandma Montierth, Papa and Moma.
Here we are with Grandma and Grandpa Fisher.
We took a hike near Moma and Papa's house. The boys got tired way too soon but we all had fun anyway.

I love all of your pictures. It was so good to visit with you, even if it was for such a short time. We will have to visit longer next time, our boys had so much fun together.

Glad you had a fun break and that you got home safely.

Love you!
