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.

I am so glad that you all had fun here in Utah. I just wish that we could have stoped by to say hello at Grandma Ingrams. We where out of town and then I had to do my babysitting job and could not leave. Hopefully next time.
