The Rest of the Utah trip...

It was great for us to be able to escape to Utah for a while to get out of the 110+ temperatures that plague AZ in the summer. Although Chris wasn't able to be with us the whole time we kept busy and enjoyed our time with family and friends. To give a quick recap Caleb was able to meet some his great-grandparents for the first time, help with wedding details, visit friends, go swimming with Grandpa, and went 4-wheeling. We took many pictures during our 6 week jaunt to Utah this summer, so I'll just share a few of my favs...



Caleb learned to climb on EVERYTHING while we were staying with my parents, the bed, the table, chairs, ect. Apparently he was thirsty and decided he needed my drink.

Our family is Italian and enjoys a traditional cookie called a Pizzelle. My sister decided she wanted them served at her wedding reception so we spent a day making them and Caleb enjoyed the taste testing.

C Bugs' First Camping Trip

After a busy spring/summer we finally made our outdoor adventure! I had been debating when would be the best time to take Caleb, before he started to walk or after, those of you who have experience with this will have to let me know what your thoughts are. In the end I decided walking would be better, however Caleb is now in the climbing phase so we spent our time keeping him from falling off of the picnic table. He only had 3 falls in 2 days with minor scrapes and bruises, no broken bones or stitches which I was very relieved for!! I had a skunk encounter, it scurried right by me, but thankfully we didn't have the spray!We all enjoyed being outside enjoying nature and a good campfire.
