We went to Zions for a family reunion (Richie's Mom's side) a while ago. It was so much fun! Claire loved playing with her aunts, uncles and cousins.
One morning was spent playing games. Richie was a "judge" for some of the competitions so he wore honorary pirate gear.
Everyone was given a kazoo to cheer their families on. Claire still has hers (although it might get "lost" soon. ;) ).
Some of the games...
Claire wanted to spend every minute of every day swimming. This little girl is a fishy!
Connor just tagged along, happily, where ever we went. He's such a sweet baby.
Claire wanted a "ride" in Connor's Ergo.
We did the Riverwalk, which is a really easy hike.
Claire wanted to play in the water the rest of the day. It was FREEZING, but she didn't care!
Connor hung out on Daddy's lap. Anyone else seeing a pattern?
On the hike back, both kids were exhausted and only wanted mom. So I hiked half a mile with two sleeping children. Together they weigh almost 40 pounds. Moms are so tough. :)
That night we took Claire for a horseback ride. She was in heaven! She talked about it for weeks afterward. I was so proud of how brave she was. She hopped right on and never looked the least bit scared!
Connor got snuggled by lots and lots of family! I love his face in this picture haha.
Claire is allergic to certain sunscreens. I accidentally put Richie's sunscreen on her, and this was the outcome. Mothering fail. :(
This was the last night, with both kiddos snuggling in bed. :)
It was a great trip!
