Salt Lake

I've gotten a little behind in blog posts, so here are a few pictures from when we were staying with the Hardys.  They're not really organized, but I thought they are worth posting :)

Genola Fun

Chase had been promised he'd get to ride the tractor the next time we went to visit Oma and Opa.  He was so excited and asked about it all the time.  Finally the day came to spend some time down in Genola.  Chase could hardly wait.

We met their neighbor's tiny, new foal.  So cute.


He was nervous at first but then touched the horse


Ty goes along for anything :)


Resting like Dogger

Checking out his great grandpa

And the event Chase had been waiting for...








We had such a fun day.  Can't wait to be closer soon!

Utah Symphony

Saturday night, we went to the Utah Symphony concert with Marcus' parents, his brother Derek, and Derek's finacee Lindsey.  The program was titled "Let's Dance!" and featured a lot of great singers and dancers.

Gram & Pops' House

We enjoyed spending a few days with Gram and Pops.  Chase remembered where everything was, including all the toys and stuffed animals.  His memory really is amazing.  I have a couple pictures of the boys playing around the house and neighborhood.

Chase loved pushing Ty around in the jumper - Ty loved it too!

Hogel Zoo

Friday, we went to Hogel Zoo in Salt Lake City.  Chase had been really looking forward to the animals, but once he saw the train, that's all he wanted to do.  There were lots of baby animals around, and the weather was really nice... which explains the sunburn on my neck.

Checking out the giraffe

Comparing his size to the monkeys, and then he couldn't stand anymore (???)

A happy Zoo go-er


Lunchtime



Finally on the train - I told Chase to smile, and this is what I got ;)

Enjoying the train

He was super focused

And this was another day resulting in two exhausted little boys.
