Utah Part 3. Uintahs

The second week that we were in Utah we took our two boys and went camping in the Uintah's. Mike and I LOVE it up there. It was fun to be there with our two kids, even if Brixton woke up in the middle of the night, and refused to go back to sleep for 4, yes 4 hours. It really was fun. I promise. :)

Utah Part 2. Family Family Family

In the 6 1/2 years that we spent in the DC area, our trips back to Utah were 2 weeks long, max. This summer because of our unique situation, of Mike quitting his job, and us moving to New Hampshire for grad school...we were able to spend a fantastic 5 weeks in Utah. That meant LOTS of time to spend with family. Lucky for me, my sister Tara and her kids were in town with their boys at the same time. My sister Rachel also came over a few extra times so that our boys could hang out together.
My mom and Brixton. haha, love it!

This was one of the best summers that I can remember. It was so fun to spend so much time with family. We also spent a week with Mike's family in Park City....(I just have to go through LOTS of pictures to do a blog about that week).

Utah...Part 1. Southern Utah I keep delaying blogging because the thought of blogging about 5 weeks in Utah is overwhelming I'm going to do my best to keep it somewhat organized.
We landed in Utah on the 4th of July, and a couple of days later Mike and Damon headed to Southern Utah for a little Father / Son bonding / camping / biking time.
