Friend

Maddux had a play date with a long lost friend today. Grey has been in Minnesota all summer, but is finally back ! These two boys were hilarious together. They mimicked whatever the other was doing. I caught a few funny things, but there were so many more!

Utah

We have been in Utah this past week and I can't believe someone can take 100 pictures of such a quick trip! But I did!
I ran my 5th half marathon on Saturday and it was 1)-FREEZING cold, 2)- painfully downhill (couldn't walk normal for three days), and 3)-at a much higher altitude than I'm used to! Sweet oxygen has never felt so good when I got back here to AZ.

Here is a horrible picture of Aubry and I freezing our buns off at the starting line. It was taken on my phone and obviously is not good quality. Saturday night it was over to Grandma and Grandpa Ingrams for a big get-together with the whole family. It was so great to see everyone and Maddux had a blast getting to play outside in the amazing weather! Sunday we headed to Temple square with Grandma Tattersall. Again, the weather was beautiful! We rode on the Trax and told Maddux we were on the "train". He was thrilled! Monday we drove up to Park City. We wandered around the outlets and let Maddux get some more time outdoors. Here he is picking out a treat at the Chocolate Factory. Monday night Drew's uncle Mark treated us to dinner at the Pie. Oh, how I love that place! The pizza was awesome and Maddux was a nightmare during all of dinner! He looks so innocent in this picture only because Uncle Mark had brought a Sharpie and let him go to work on the walls!

This Drew's cousins son (does that make them 2nd cousins??) Walker and Maddux riding around on the John Deer tractor. I'm a little nervous that he had so much fun on this thing. He was a CRAZY driver! Watch out! Tuesday we were heading out of town, but first we got to meet up with my very bestest friend Hillary and her cute boy Teague for breakfast. So good to see you Hill! I miss you!!! Then off to Vegas we went. We walked the strip until Maddux was completely exhausted at night. The highlight for all three of us was for sure the Bellagio water show. I've probably seen it 15 times in my life, but watching it with this little guy was the best! We took him on the Monorail the next morning (another "train") and then cruised Caesar's Palace before heading back home.

Pizzeria Bianco

We have been talking for YEARS about going to Pizzeria Bianco. The problem is, it's not one of those places you just pick and up and go grab a pizza. You have to make a reservation a month in advance and you have to call over and over and over and over again exactly one month to the day, precisely at 4:00pm in order to make the reservation. Thanks to Becca's persistence we got a reservation for last night and it was totally worth it. The whole experience was awesome! We got there at about 4:55 where there was a line of people going all the way down the sidewalk with people who had been there in line since 4:00. They opened the doors at 5:00 and shouted, "Is Becca here?" That was us, we got to walk right in and be the first seated. I wish I could have taken a picture of the peoples' faces that were standing in the 110 degree heat for an hour! We were "THE" reservation. There were only a few other tables in the restaurant so most of the line was turned away to come back later!

There are 6 pizzas on the menu and our table managed to order 5 of them, so we each got a taste of them all.

This place has been featured on Oprah, Martha, Food Network, and Travel Channel. It was so awesome to get to eat there and with such a great group of friends! Thank you Theurers for finally making it happen!


check out all those amazing looking pizzas....

Lake

We took our first trip to the lake with Maddux yesterday. At first, he was not a fan of the boat going fast. He clung on to Daddy for dear life saying, "no...no...no". But by the end of the trip he LOVED the boat, he loved the water, and he loved driving. Watch out world!
