There's No Place Like Home for the Holidays: Our Time in Salt Lake

On Christmas Day we drove back to Salt Lake to spend more time with the Longs and have a nice Christmas dinner.

We were back and forth between Salt Lake and Price several times during our trip. While the last part of the trip in Salt Lake was mostly filled with caring for Evan and his little virus, our time in Salt Lake before that made up for it. Grandma Betty and Papa Stu took Evan sledding.



I haven't ridden a sled for years. I felt like a total rookie out there. I think I looked like one too, but it was fun! After sledding, we tried to go to McDonalds for hot chocolate, but they don't have it. So, we settled for the next best thing--ice cream!

While we were in Salt Lake, Evan helped Grandma Betty make her Chex mix.


He also got to have a visit with Santa Clause.


Grandma Betty and Papa Stu know Evan loves fire trucks, so they got him a fire station for Christmas.

He liked playing with his cars (he wasn't feeling very well in these photos).

We had a group family photo taken--I'm eager to see how it turned out. Evan was a little fussy, but hopefully at least one of them will work.
Evan liked pretending he was the baby in this baby seat his cousin Aidric was using.

I have some cute pictures of Evan with his cousins Zavion, Aidric and Cadence, but I don't want to post pictures of other parents' kids without their permission, so they'll have to come in a later post.
