Utah - October 2013

Mid October we got to go to Utah for a good friend's wedding. It was a quick trip but so much fun. We drove up through Fort Collins to pick up Mark, who tagged along with us, and then went through Wyoming. We left around 6pm, hoping Chloe would sleep almost the entire way there. We didn't get that lucky though. She only slept a little. Once we got into Wyoming we hit a snow storm. Hardly any visibility, which meant driving slow, and some white knuckle driving for Scotty. I was car sick the first half of the way. We stopped at Q'doba for dinner, which probably wasn't the best idea, since an hour or so after I threw up in our to go bag and had to toss it out the window. YUCK! Scott and Mark both informed me that I am the quietest person they know while I am puking. From that point on I felt a million times better though. Thank goodness. We got there around 3:30am and went straight to bed after no sleep the whole way there.

The only time she slept the way there. 

We got to see Tyler, Kenzie, and the "Bay" Eden. She is just the cutest.

We went to their wedding on Saturday at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple. It was beautiful but so windy and cold. The ceremony was beautiful as was the bride, Eden. It was so great to see Adam and Eden and celebrate with them on their big day. 
While we were at the wedding, Scott's wonderful cousin Mamie came over with her family to watch Chloe. Chloe loved being with their kids Belle, Cash, and Paige. It was so nice to see them. I'm sure Chloe wished she could have stayed with them. It was obvious that she had so much fun with them.

Later that night we went to Cornbelly's to celebrate Scott's birthday with the wonderful Mullins family and Tyler, Kenzie, and Eden. 

Watching Paige and Chloe playing in the giant corn kernel pit was the highlight. They LOVED it!

I love the chances we get to spend time with family. Even though we will see them all again soon for Christmas, it was still so hard to say goodbye. 


If you know Scott, then you know that his favorite holiday is Halloween. He loves the costumes, scary movies, haunted houses... the whole deal. He gets so  into it, while I on the other hand would be fine if Halloween didn't exist at all. Don't get me wrong, I still have fun and enjoy the children trick-or-treating and dressing up. I just don't see why it is such a big deal and I HATE anything scary. I can only enjoy haunted houses once I get through them and it is done. If I watch a scary movie I wont sleep that night and I trick myself into seeing and hearing scary things.
Anyways, Scott got very into it this year and picked out costumes for all three of us. He also went over the top coming up with ideas to decorate our car for our Ward's Trunk-or-Treat this year. We were all clowns (pretty fitting right?).

Chloe enjoyed getting dressed up but it was pretty cold outside so she wasn't a fan of that during truck-or-treat (which was the night before Halloween). On Halloween, because it was still so cold, we only went trick-or-treating to see both sets of grandparents. She still got plenty of sweets though. Her favorite is M&M's. 

We had fun, it will be interesting to see what Scott comes up with next year. 
Plus, Chloe will actually be able to go trick or treating next year.
