2011 Week 29

Final week of vacation in Utah and it looks like we squeezed a lot into it.
Camille was able to do haircuts (and color for me) - yay! Not only are we now looking our best, but it was a lot of fun to catch up with her. I also worked in a couple more visit with friends as well.

The Summit County Art Show was going on and we had some down time so we took the kids. They had some fun activities there for them to do - make their own boats, turn sticks into colorful snakes, and bottlecap pins.
The kids and I spent more than one morning over at Karen's arena with Wyatt and the horses.

Dixie is a very patient, wonderful horse isn't she?

Kaitlyn LOVES to go fast - look at that big grin when she got Dixie to trot.

And I got some pretty nice shots of Wyatt jumping on Bear.

We made sure to have a quick, early birthday party for Dad. As you can see, the kids were so excited to get to the cake that they rushed their grandpa through his dinner. Tyler also can't keep a secret and in the 2 minutes it took Kaitlyn to bring out the gift, he tried to tell Grandpa what it was at least 5 times.

It's a new camera - Dad's first one of his own I think. He's pretty excited about it and I made sure to show him how to use it and upload photos before I left.

Quick Granparent photo session with the kids out in the field.

And a final day absolutely PACKED with fun stuff. Grandpa wanted to see Kaitlyn jump off the high diving board (and also used his new camera for the first time) and we already had plans with Dari and the kids so we talked them into going to the pool with us.

(Dad got her going up the ladder and the final splash but nothing in between. Oh well, he's new to this photo thing)

Grandma Jackson made sure to stop by too. She took photos of the kids with her phone and Tyler thought that was a great idea so he took my phone and snapped a ton of photos, most of which are exactly the same :)

On Wednesday we were up at 4AM to make it to the airport. The flights went pretty smoothly and the kids were fantastic on the plane. We were all so so happy to see Sam and go home to sleep in our own beds. But we're still working on the transition to the NC timezone and our regular schedule at home.
