Utah Trip!

We went to Utah!  The trip didn't go as originally planned, but it turned out great anyway!
Originally we were planning on going to a cabin with my family for four days, going to Aaron's brother's wedding, and relaxing.
First hiccup, my grandpa passed away a week before.  Which was really a tender mercy because we were able to be there for the funeral.  Next hiccup- my dad got really sick and was contagious so we cancelled the cabin and went to Logan and stayed with my brother for a few days.  The trip went so fast with everything right after each other, but it was SO wonderful to go!
In Logan, we hung out at parks and swam!  It was our first time swimming as a family and Eliza was really into it and Camille was TERRIFIED!  It was funny because we thought it would be exactly the opposite!
 We went to Ryan & Hilary's wedding and reception.

The girls got pretty sick of the waiting and the pictures...  :)

And then the funeral of my grandpa.  It went perfect and was a wonderful tribute to such a happy guy.
