Utah - a week with the Reynolds & a week with the Ingrams

I was able to stay in Utah for a couple weeks after Park City and spend more time in Salt Lake with the fam.  Makenzie loves her Grandma's house, but she REALLY loves the playhouse!  What kid wouldn't!??? It's a two-story, life-size playhouse with a play kitchen downstairs and a play school room upstairs!  She had a great week playing with the cousins!! 

 The timing couldn't have worked out better because just a week later, my cousin was getting married in Utah and my parents, sister, and niece were coming out and I would get to stay and play with them too!! It was so fun seeing lots of cousins and aunts and uncles at the wedding and have a week with my family in Utah!  We jammed in all Utah has to offer in that week and had a great time!  Snowbird ski resort was beautiful and so fun with lots to do!  We also went to Park City, Provo, Temple Square, and downtown Salt Lake.  

Park City Reynolds Reunion

Over July 4th we had our annual Reynolds reunion!  Instead of Newport Beach, we stayed in Park City for the week.  We had an amazing 5 bedroom house with beautiful views!  We had are annual Talent show that did not disappoint!  On the 4th we went to the Main Street parade, had a bbq feast, and then went to a Rodeo!  It was such a fun day!  The rest of the week was spent swimming, shopping, playing games, eating, and catching up with everyone!  The guys went mountain biking and go-cart racing. The kids all play so well together and had a blast "rock sledding", snake hunting (ha!), riding their scooters, playing games, and swimming in our own hot tub!  Can't wait for next year!! 

The fellas come to visit!

In June we were lucky enough to have some awesome visitors!  We flew Jake's nephews, Josh and Jer, out for a fun visit before they both headed off to college.  We always have the best time with these boys and were so excited for them to come play!  We saw all the monuments and had a fun day just walking around DC.  We also did the Madame Tussaud's wax museum, where they had way too much fun posing with every.single.statue.   But Kenz had fun getting in on the action too!  
They were here for Jer's 18th bday so we spent the day in Baltimore at an Oriole's game!  It was a first for all of us and so much fun!  
We also drove up to Connecticut for one of the weekends they were here and had a blast with the O'Neils!   They are such cute cousins to Kenz and always wanted to hold her hand and play with her!
