So my beautiful wife got me the most amazing Christmas present she ever has...VIP tickets to SLC Comic Con and this was our trip to Utah for said event. It was a blast, and I will cover it in the next entry, but this will be the added bonuses of a trip to Utah.
getting to see Great Grandma
helping their uncle with exercise
barefoot in Utah grass
like nowhere else
all of the blossoms in bloom
at her parents
This peach tree in the back looked like the Japanese cherry blossoms.
Grandpa A made a gift of boots and spurs (not to be used on the child's father)
still barefoot in the back
until it got cold. And all who know my packing will laugh that my kids didn't have coats with them (why would we need them? Its the rockies in Spring...) so we had to borrow. Oh, by the way, I think this is modified Quidditch.
Don't fall off your broom, Harry!
Then my gracious cousin had us over so my kids could play with their second cousins.
watching the Pirate Fairy for family night
great friends on their trampoline
We got to meet up with more great grandparents to go to the airplane museum. This is in front of Popper's plane.
our youngest was the most excited
It was cool for the kids to see all of their relatives' planes in the same place.
a great experience
pointing out Popper's name on the wall
getting their photo in front of Grandpa E's plane
our human totem-pole up to Grandpa's cockpit
Both grandpa's planes were in line for this great shot. The muscle cars of fighter aircraft!
Uncle Bob-wa was up at the base for a physical and finished in time to meet up with us.
in front of Popper's other plane...the one with his name on it
such a blessing to have him tell the kids what it was like to fly on these before GPS
Then photos in front of their dad's plane; mine looks older and worse than most of the others in the museum...I've flown a couple recently that look like this...
Then it was off to the dinosaur park.
Don't eat me!
It's ok, Kid, it's a veggie-saurus.
Easter morning egg and jellybean hunt
grandma in the background
And I leave you with the blossoms. It was such a pleasure to see the colors in Utah in Spring.
