A place for all things I love...

Flaming Gorge Cabin

We took a quick two day trip up to Flaiming Gorge with the Browns. It was so much fun! Kingsley especially loved the trip, being outdoors and most of all fishing. We stayed in quaint cabins overlooking a beautiful lake. 
In the afternoon we went out on the lake on paddle boats, and went fishing.
Kingsley was so excited when we caught a fish!

After we went back to the cabin and failed to get any of the kids down for naps, King had a blast sitting on the dock with his dad fishing and throwing rocks ;) 
I just love all these photos of this daddy son bonding

 I thought I could get some photos of our family in such a scenic place, but only Hudson was on board.
At night we ate some delicious chili and then roasted marshmallows. The kids loved hanging out by the fire with their sticks 
It was so nice to be out in the fresh air where the kids could just run around and play while we relaxed. For some reason that night my boys slept so horribly :( Hudson woke up almost every hour crying, I think he was sick or teething but it was exhausting. Kingsley fell off the bed in the middle of the night and woke up with a bloody nose a couple hours later so we obviously didn't get much sleep between the two of them. Hopefully next year they will have an easier time sleeping.
How cute are these two buddies? Can't wait to go back next year!

Potter's in St George 2014

Every year we take a trip to St George courtesy of my Grandparents. It's always so fun to take a little vacation, hang out with family and visit with my sweet Grandma & Grandpa Ballam. We were sad that Nick, Erin, Atlas & Cosby couldn't make it this year. We stayed in a new house this time that was awesome! It had a billion rooms, lots of space, and a pool in the back. 
First off we headed to the splash pad where the kids had a blast. They basically had the whole thing to themselves.
Love this sweet face!
Love all these cousins, but it's so hard to get them to all look in a picture!
They also loved riding on the carousal. Kingsley and Tanner named his horse Bobby :)

The kids and adults absolutely loved the children's museum. It honesty is pretty cool, and super cheap. The kids probably loved the grocery store section the best.

The kids always seemed to get extra loud and hyper whenever my grandparents came over which wasn't ideal. One night we took them outside so my grandparents could watch them race around on their scooters and bikes. The kids could have stayed out their all night if we let them :) Hawkes and Kingsley loved racing!
One of the days we stayed at the house to hang out and swim.
It was so nice to be able to go out and swim whenever we wanted.
Most of the nights the boys all stayed up late playing basketball.

One of the nights we went to Tuachan's Little Mermaid and it was amazing!! We left Hudson to be babysat, because the show was pretty late. Kingsley really loved the show since he has watched the movie a bunch. It really was one of the best play/musicals I have ever seen, so I was so grateful my grandparents paid for us to go. Kingsley talked about it for weeks after.
We brought a blow up toddler bed for Kingsley & he was super excited about it! He did surprisingly well sleeping in it too! 
Another great trip, especially thanks to my grandparents! They sure spoil us and it's def a trip I won't forget!
