4th of July

Christian and I drove to Salt Lake City for the 4th of July weekend.

The drive through Wyoming was actually really pretty. I couldn't believe how green it was in July. All that rain is paying off!

We met some friends (my roommate from BYU-I) at the Hogle Zoo on the 4th.

We saw ducks.

And we went to the elephant show.

Christian loved these tiger statues.

Matthew and Christian at the zoo. Neither one was interested in getting this picture taken.

The boys checking out the giraffes on the 2nd level. This was Christian's favorite part of the zoo. He really loves giraffes right now.

I took Christian to Temple Square before church on Sunday.

I just loved to watch Christian gaze at the temple.

He loves to smell flowers.

Some other highlights of our trip:
  • Kenzie invited us to their ward carnival on the 3rd. What a fun event to go to. They had a big slide and a bouncy house. We had to drag Christian out of the bouncy house. They had a lot of other activities too. Somehow I have no pictures of this night. Thanks for inviting us!!
  • We got to ride the train and carousel at the zoo. The highlight of our trip, for sure.
  • We had a good time playing the Wii on the 4th too! It was fun to see everyone's true age.
  • We got to meet Tommie, Geoff's girlfriend. I, sadly, have no pictures of her. What a great girl. Thanks for letting us get to know you.
  • I finally received our family pictures from my last trip to UT. They turned out GREAT! I will scan them in soon.
  • We enjoyed a great BBQ and fireworks with my family on the 4th. I really failed in the pictures department this trip. I guess I was having too much fun!
  • Church was excellent and Christian went to nursery with no problems. What a relief!
  • I got to spend time with my niece and nephew.
