Trip to SLC

Christmas day we decided to get out of town and head to SLC to visit family and friends. Although I only have pictures of the time we spent with Mike and Natalie and family, we saw other people too.

Here we are exploring the new Natural History Museum of Utah. It was pretty awesome - I highly recommend it.







We did a fair amount of this.


Hike up Mill Creek Canyon.


The kids decided all the snow off this rock had to go.


Look Dad, we're using our shnazy-snow-trax-things. Worked like a charm!


Nick and the kids walked around temple square while Briana and I had a moms only morning.


Nick drives (safely?) and documents our exciting trip home.

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve festivities included. . . .

A visit from the big man in the flesh,


(Keyton had a long list of reasons why this was the real Santa: his beard was greyish white, you could see through it, etc. He also slipped in a brand new last minute request for a Wii. Sorry bud, Santa needs a little more notice than that.)



3 generation pictures,


dress-ups,


Minute-to-Win-It games,



right-left story,


new jammies,


and finally sleep.



So this could happen.

Winter Garden Aglow

We thought seeing the lights at the botanical garden was a fine winter solstice activity. And it was.



At the last minute Lola changed her mind and decided to give Santa her Christmas list: a princess and a flower-blow (pinwheel). Keyton requested Lego Starwars.
