Utah/Washington Trip

The last couple of weeks have been so much fun! Taya and I flew to Utah on the 23rd and stayed for a few days then went back home to Washington on the 30th for a week. It was SUCH a nice break, but of course I was sick for more than half the time :( So for those of you I told I'd come see, I'm so sorry! In spite of that though, the trip was seriously so much fun, thanks everyone for entertaining us! Taya was a completely different little girl there with so much freedom to run around! It's making me so excited to be back in our house! She is turning into such the entertainer these days with so many new tricks :) I guess she's always been a little show off, but her personality keeps developing more and more. I'll have to post a video soon of all the funny things she does now.

Anyway, I wish I could say here's a few pictures from the trip, but let's be honest, here's a TON of pictures :) . . .


My mom, Jenna and Taya

This was the morning after the 24th of July so the kids all had leftover fireworks that Taya got to enjoy :)

Who knows what Taya's doing in this picture, but I thought it was cute :)

This is Taya trying to steal Jenna's sunglasses at a family reunion we went to.

Jace, Taya, and Cole making funny faces.

I looked outside one day and saw Cole and Taya drinking the water off the sidewalk from the hose. Sorry my daughter is a bad influence on your son, Kym :)

Me and Taya swinging

Taya can now roll her eyes, it's pretty cute :)

Cam flew in for a few days for a family party. This was actually our 4 year anniversary, exciting huh!?

Good ol' fashioned slip'n'slide!

Taya didn't really like being thrown down, just liked playing in the puddles of bubbles.


We got out the slip'n'slide at my parents house too with my brother and his family...

Taya LOVED playing with Pheobe, my parents dog, while we were there. It was so funny, she loved giving her loves and Pheobe would just come right up to her and lay on her back for Taya to scratch her. Taya still asks me every day to see pictures of Pheobe on the computer.

This, by far, is my favorite picture from the trip. Taya and my dad are seriously best buds! I was so happy to get such a good picture of the both of them :) Thanks, Dad, for watching Taya so much on the trip and taking her to get goodies at the store! She still asks me all day everyday for "nummies". Thanks for that too :) haha

Those pictures are so fun!! I didn't know you guys broke out the slip-n-slide. Poor Kate looks absolutely terrified. Did all you grownups remember that slip-n-slides equal grass in your bum?

Krista said...

What a treat this slide show is!!!! Thanks Ashley. That was so much fun. I really treasure pictures and these are so special. Kate does look terrified, but it was so funny, and yes grass gets in places you wouldn't dream of. Ha. Funny Jami, we wish you could have been there, cause we know you would have been right there with them.
