Utah or bust!

After being home from the beach for a week, we left on a cross-country road trip to Utah. In retrospect, a week was perhaps not quite enough time for a family of eight to turn around from a beach vacation to a long-haul roadtrip, but somehow we managed to get things done...most things, anyway. 

We left on Benjamin's birthday, stopping by New Orleans for some birthday beignets, and then driving on to San Antonio, Carlsbad Caverns and the Grand Canyon before settling in at the cabin in Grover, Utah, to enjoy Capitol Reef for a couple of days. Rachel and I then gave Grandpa and Daddy a break from driving—she and I drove from Grover to Goblin Valley (which is about 1.5 hours away, the longest period of time either Rachel or I have ever driven; Andrew even took a car nap and then woke up in a panic because he never gets to take car naps and wondered why the car was moving). We finally made it to Spanish Fork on Friday and have been busy ever since.

Zoë was baptized on Saturday, for example.

Pictures will be coming soon, I'm sure. In the meantime we're still adventuring and visiting and having a grand ol' time!
