A trip to Utah is never a bad idea and we realized that with the Labor Day holiday, we had enough vacation to take a vacation. I was dreading the drive the whole time this trip was planned though. I don't like it myself, and I was pretty worried about how Harvey would do, as he isn't much of a fan of two hour drives to Minot. We ended up giving a girl I met through church a ride to Rigby, and she actually was helpful to have in the back seat. And Harvey did miraculously good on the way down. He was seriously amazing and didn't cry at all really until we got about 3 hours from home. We all felt his pain. But we made it.
He also got pretty excited about all the baby toys.

Harvey was surprisingly uninterested in swimming. It was actually pretty funny because that little high chair thing was just sitting around and he walked himself over to it and sat down and got himself pretty much hooked in/situated all by himself. It was facing away from the pool and everyone and he sat there for a few minutes. Guess he was hungry :) So I got him some food and then turned him around and he ate and was happy but never ended up getting back in the water. Just running around like a crazy kid and chasing and being chased by cousin Payne. So fun to see him actually PLAY with other kids!
Sunday Carson and Nat blessed little Millie at their house. There was great food and fun to hang out again with family. I didn't take hardly any pictures, unfortunately, but I think this one is great!

Tanner had a family reunion on Labor Day (Burningham Golf Classic). I ended up staying home while they golfed so we'd get a couple extra hours with my parents. Laura and Dallin and Ben and Julie and Kathryn and my parents and Harvey and I drove up to Silver Lake and wandered around there. Gorgeous. And such perfect weather. The whole time we were there the weather was phenomenal actually. There were a MILLION people up there enjoying the holiday along with us. That's ok - the kids loved being outside and it was just nice to be up in the mountains. One thing I wish we would have done more but we all quickly got sick of driving so much!

Harvey was pretty excited sitting on the animal. Once it started going he decided it wasn't so cool. Tanner climbed on while it was moving and then he liked it again :)

|So serious all the time, but he really was having fun!|
|Are you kidding me? Can't beat this.|
It was nice to make it to our home here and be done with driving and sleep in our own beds - although as a side note, Harvey has had a HORRIBLE week with sleeping since being home. Don't know what's up with that. But anyway, it's always hard to leave our home home. Always more things we wish we could have done or people we wish we could have seen, but it was a really great vacation!
