Salt Lake

We enjoyed a very full weekend in Salt Lake this past weekend. We went down to celebrate Payson's baptism and did many fun things. Sorry to all our UT friends (Angela, Julie, Batemans, etc) we would have LOVED to visit, but this trip just didn't allow time. But we thought about you!

No need to bring a pack-n-play to the hotel, just use the bottom drawer for a bed. Clean up is a lot more easy this way too. (Seriously, she slept here and LOVED it. Crazy kid.)

The three other bugs in a rug squished together in one bed. (These kids certainly have Manwaring blood in them.)

We enjoyed a picnic at the park after Payson's baptism. The kids played for 6 hours straight while the adults lounged on the grass. It was WONDERFUL!

This tree provided HOURS of entertainment.

Kate LOVES to pick dandelions. She'll pick EVERYONE she sees. Maybe I won't need to spray my yard this year, she'll take care of it for me.

Micah is out of the hospital. He still gets tired very easily and is still experiencing some joint pain. He will undergo another echo this week which will tell us more, but he is much better than last week. Thank goodness!


We also enjoyed a full day at Hogle Zoo.

We enjoyed watching and eating old fashion Salt Water Taffy with salt straight from the great Salt Lake itself.

We even got to see Aunt Natalie who was in UT for Women's Conference.

The flowers on Temple Square were beautiful.

So THAT'S where you went to! Looks like such fun! I love all the pictures! Kate looks like she may be taking after Carter with the sleeping :)!

Poor little Micah. I know just how he feels! Hope he makes a complete recovery soon.

Did you by chance save me some saltwater taffy? Banana chocolate is my fave :)!

Your pictures are awesome! You'll have to teach me someday how to take such wonderful pics. Kate cracks me up! Did you guys put her in the drawer or did she just discover it on her own. Hogle Zoo! How fun! I miss going to that place.

Amber- We missed you guys, but I guess 9 months pregnant is an okay excuse.

Jennifer- Sorry, didn't save you any, but I'll know better next time!

Jewelle- We put her in it the first time as sort of a joke, but then she was insistant on sleeping there, so we let her. Thanks on the pics, I don't have a clue what I'm doing, so I'm afraid I won't be able to teach you much. :)

What a fun trip! And the flowers are beautiful. I'm getting anxious to see more of mine. We've had a few pop up, but the majority of them are taking their time.

Looks like you had tons of fun! I love Kate's bed in the Hotel. That is so funny I never would have thought of that.

Emily Loria said...

I wouldn't mind sleeping in that drawer bed, it looks cozy! Glad you had an awesome time!

Love the pictures! How fun!!! I remember going to the Golden Spike monument once when I was about 10 - right before the trains were supposed to go, something went wrong and the trains didn't even move...I remember my dad being so ticked off!!! I probably was too, being a daddy's girl!:)
