We had such a fun little family vacation! A few months ago, we decided we wanted to do our family vacation this year in Southern Utah. We wanted to take the boys to the Grand Canyon! After our trip to Phoenix in February, we drove home past the Grand Canyon and had been wanting to go back ever since. So we made some reservations and then got an even better idea to invite both of our parents along for the fun. The boys are so lucky to have both sets of Grandparents nearby and we thought we had better take advantage of that while we can. So road trippin' we went!

The grandparents enjoying the view... and me freaking out behind the camera about Eli leaning over the edge! Hahahaha!
Gotta have a silly picture! It's more "authentic" :)
So many amazing views!!
By this point, we had been to several look outs, it was hot, and the kids were so sick of my taking their picture. They were great travelers and such good sports though!
All of us!
The next morning we left to come home. We stopped at the cheese factory of course, and then headed to Cove Fort. I had never been there, so I was excited about it. The boys were restless from riding in the car, so it was a good stopping point. It was so pretty and so interesting. I had never visited that church site and didn't know much about it. It was super interesting and fun to see all the things they did in Cove Fort.
We had a great trip and enjoyed being together for several days. We are lucky that Scott has a flexible work schedule where he can take time off to be with us. The boys love when he's around and we loved having their grandparents there with us as well. Until next year! Now.... where should we go?
