UTAH


Chillin' with the Brady and Jonah



Grandma Madeline after watching her at the Mormon Tabernacle Choir broadcast


Finally met my dear Cynthia's hubby Tom, they are adorable.


Samuel's Great Great Grandma Roselle was as vibrant as ever


Loves hangin' with the boys



Matt and Olivia were great dancers


Three of the Four quads with Samuel. Thankfully the other Stephan "Bindy" is home doing well.

Last week we went to Utah for Matt's sister Megan's wedding. We were so happy to be there for Megan, and her new hubby John's I do's. It was a great trip to be with family and friends. I took my first flight with the baby alone to go early to see my quad cousins that were in town. Unfortunately they were their because one of them, sweet Stephan "Bindy", was life-flighted to Salt Lake and was having surgery. Samuel had the time of his life with all his many cousins. Nothing makes him happier than being around other little kids. He gets very vocal and does everything he knows how to try to interact with them.
It is always bitter sweet going to Utah no matter what we never go home with out feelings of regret for not meeting up with someone or not spending enough time with some. It is like trying to put together a huge puzzle with everyones schedules trying to make the peices fit just right. It is a never ending battle.

Wow, you guys are quite the world travelers! You've got to settle down so we can have the next chic night.

Sam makes Henry look like a weenie!

Hey, I would have never gotten my passport had you not given me all that advice. Seriously. I owe you big time. It was my fault not having proper documentation. Like a marriage certificate. Now I do!

Thanks for everything. And sorry I didn't call back last night. We have a stomach bug and between the passport agency and throwing up, I just forgot. Sorry!

That series of photos was like an issue of "Flat Stanley" only Stanley's not all that flat. :)

And that is how it really is...how many places can we get "flat Stanley" (Samuel) in one short visit. We have now become merely the driver making sure he gets in his scheduled appointments:)

I guesss being photogenic is genetic! Samuel is smiley and cuter than ever in every picture. I can't get Luke to smile and look at the camera ever! I am suggesting that you take a little trip to NYC to start your son's lucrative modeling career! Also, I loved the Cynthia and hubby, loved seeing a pic of the quads and loved Grandma Roselle. She pins pics to her curtains...I love that!
