Utah ski trip

Our flight home from Denver was delayed, so we had to entertain ourselves for a while. Eli was in love with moving sidewalk, not sure what the technical term is :) Joel and I must have gone up and down the corridor 25-30 times.

Kailey had a great time using her chopsticks to eat her hibachi shrimp at Uncle Jonathan's restaurant.
Yay for skiing! Park City was nice; this was the first time that any of us had skiied there and we had a great time. Thier ski lift was awesome. I used to have bad issues with getting off of ski lifts, I think I have over come these problems with experience (I'll save that one for another post), but I didnn't have to test it out the Park City lift was truly wonderful.

Tubing was super fun. (Eli didn't think so, but the rest of us did. Eli at least had a good time playing in the warming hut.)
Jared (Joel's brother) and Ashlyn (his super cute daughter)
Keri (sister-in-law, Jared's wife) and Amilyn (sister-in-law, Joel's sister)Some of the other guys in the warming hut (back l to r: Zachary, Josh, Brandon; front l to r: Jamie, Allison, Sarah, and Joe)
Despite his intense hatred for his snow gear, I thought that he looked super cute.

Temple Square is so beautiful. In this picture we are in one of the vistor's centers at the Christus.
Kailey and Allison outside of the Salt Lake temple
Joel's brother Jared is a chiropractor. He brought his travel table over to the house and adjusted all of us even the babies. It was heaven after packing Eli on my hip through a few airports. If you didn't notice the needle in Joel's head, that was acupuncture courtesy of Jared. Thanks Jared, you're the best!

Some other pictures, like our snowman, and the babies riding on the baby tubing ride can be checked out on Jamie and Keri's blogs


  1. It is almost hard to tell which one of you is which in the pic of you and Jamie together. I'm glad you guys had such a good time. I can't imagine taking a trip like that with small children. The pics make it look easy, but I'm sure it was anything but. You're a pro by now though right?

  2. You could've left that acupuncture picture out!!!! Uuuuuuuuugh.

  3. Snow: great for vacations, bad for living:)

  4. I'm glad you had such a great time. I love the pics. Especially the one of you and Jamie together. I had to save that one. :)

    Maybe I need to pay Jared a visit. :) I've been meaning to go to a chiropractor for a while now. My back is sucky since I slipped on the stairs when I was prego. Bleh.

    I love Eli's cute skully beanie. (at least, that's what it looks like in the pic)

    I can't wait to see you again. We're trying to get a visit together for the end of June - July 4th. I'll let you know on that.

  5. I love the picture of Joel and Kailey at the restaurant!!! Soooo cute! Kailey definitely looks like she belongs at a Japanese restaurant! haha

  6. It looks like ya'll had fun out here. I wish I'd known ya'll were here!!! I would have loved to have seen ya'll and the kiddos. Guess it will have to wait for my trip down there in a few weeks.
