Utah trip part one

Our trip to Utah was so much fun! I really miss home, and there are a lot of good and bad things about moving, so I have to concentrate on the good. Like in Utah, Arina would have gotten a measly 4 hours a week of preschool. Here she gets 3 1/2 hours, 5 days a week. No comparison on where she will do better! Jax health and doctors was another huge reason, probably the most important reason we moved. Not to mention that every weekend we are trying to decide what to do because there are so many choices! Going back to Utah only to visit made me see there is actually a lot to do there. The first day we went with my parents and sister (who actually also lives here in California too) to the zoo.

Arina donating a dollar to the cockatoo.

Arina and her cousin Hailey.

That tiger is intimidating even through the fence!

The next day we hit Park City to do the outlet stores and alpine slide. It was a little nerve wracking taking Arina up on the lift. Mondo was super stressed and flipped out every time she moved!

A round of applause for the alpine slide!

She had her hands up the entire time on the alpine coaster! So funny.
Literally a second after I snapped this pic the rides emergency brake hit because apparently Ray was going a tad too fast. It stopped sharp and Arina hit her face on the foam pad in front of her.

Poor baby. It would be really nice to know that brake system was there. It didn't happen to me and Carter! She was fine, didn't even leave a mark. I think it scared her more than anything.

Later that night with Hailey. Arina played really well with her. Its the first time she has really been with another child her age for a long period of time.

For the most part!
"Umm, excuse me, I believe this is a one person seat!"

What a fun trip. Glad you were able to go back and enjoy!

Oh Alayna is 3 (she will be 4 in October) so about a year older than Arina.

The roller coaster and slide look like so much fun!
