SLC continued...

When I found out we were taking Keaton with us to SLC I was super excited to take him to Temple Square. We had a great time walking around, looking at all the pretty flowers, the Temple, the ponds and statues of Jesus. It was fun teaching Keaton about all the different building and watching him play with Simon and Cody.

Keaton didn't want to have his picture taken

I'm sure they were thinking about how much trouble they would be in if they got in the water

The room with the a large statue of Jesus Christ has a dome ceiling. The solar system is painted all around it creates a heavenly experience. To Keaton it was a lot of stars and moons, kept pointing moon, stars, Jesus.

Road trip...SLC

This was the first trip we went on as a family, a complete family...meaning Keaton came.  Thanks to "Moo, Baa, Lalala", Goldfish-cheddar and extreme chocolate and 
apple juice traveling was great.

Keaton enjoyed meeting everyone. He met his cousin Simon and they became friends instantly. They gave each other hugs, played in the water with grandpa and enjoyed lollipops.

 Every time he saw Penelope he would say baby. He even took a baby doll and tried to put it nigh-night. We will  practice before he has a sister or brother. I don't think he understood that it was important not to cover the baby's head.  It was so cute though. I love that little guy.


What a beautiful city and beautiful family. Cody's grandma is a beautiful person. The first moment I met her I knew she was a special lady. I don't know if I will have many more opportunities to meet her in this life but I plan on getting to know her very well in the next.

Along with meeting new family Cody and I took the opportunity to explore Chicago. We went to the Shedd Aquarium, rode a water taxi, a Ferris wheel, the "L" and went to Lego land. I even bought 2 Christmas ornaments.

The last picture is at the top of the Ferris Wheel. Not going to lie...it was so romantic.

Travel Happy

Since my last post we have gone on 2 trips. First to Chicago to visit Cody's 97 year old great grandma. Then on labor day weekend we traveled south to SLC to visit the my sister and her family. She just had her 2nd child, Penelope and her blessing was that weekend. This trip was exciting because we were able to take Keaton.
