Our first stop after landing in Salt Lake City, Utah and renting a car was lunch with Aunty Cyrie and then on to my brother Jordi and his wife Jaylene's apartment. After a nice visit with them, we all squished in their front room that night, totally exhausted. It was so awesome to be surrounded by mountains again.
Matt liked shooting with his brothers and sisters best of all.
We got to stay with my Grandpa Pincock for several nights in Rigby. He is incredible. While we were there we got to visit my Grandpa Jemmett in Mud Lake who is also incredible.
We got to go rock climbing at Paramount with our buddy Steve. We use to rock climb all the time here when we were dating and newly married. We also ate at Da Pineapple Grill with Natalie and Jared. It is sort of becoming a tradition.
We spent a day in the Grand Teton National Park. Man, those mountains are wicked cool. On our way we spotted several of these bright yellow fields (who could miss them) and just had to stop and take some pictures.
We took the fairy across Jenny's Lake, which is a beautifully clear glacial lake.
When we came down from the hike, some really adventuresome folks were taking a dip in the cold water. I really wanted to put my feet in it. Dipping our feet turned in to full on swimming in it, the girls leading the way. They got in that cold water up to their necks. Then Matt and I dared each other to jump in. So we did. Matt went first while I held Peter and then we switched. I just about didn't do it because it was so cold but once I finally did, I was so glad, cloths and all! It felt so refreshing I didn't want to get out, and it was so beautiful. It was good for my soul.
(Why would you choose to live in Texas when you could live near gorgeous mountains with a nice climate and four seasons? I'm just sayin')
We then traveled to Price with a stop along the way to see my best friend growing up, Alyssa. She just had a baby too who is adorable!
Sunday after church and we had a picnic with the neighbors, then we painted our nails and played a game while all the kids slept. After that things got a bit crazy. We pulled out Cyrie's wig collection along with her mustache collection and some costumes and sort of dressed up and had a dance party. We even went to the neighbors to freak them out a little. They have got some cool neighbors.
