Fun times in Utah

Ella samples her first RedVine. Many of you may now be thinking, "What is Jennifer thinking? What kind of a crazy-headed mother gives her not quite year old baby licorice?" I was asking myself the same thing when I pried it from her red, licorice-caked, sticky hand. One of those treats that will probably not be repeated until she has the ability to actually keep said treat in her mouth. It was fun while it lasted.


My dad is working on putting in his yard and brought home the tractor. Foster nearly wet himself in glee and Maya wished it had been a horse. They both had a great time taking turns "driving" it, reguardless.

Hey, you're on vacation! Besides slimy faces kids make the BEST photo ops. Looks like you're having a blast.

Yum, love the licorice! How long are you in Utah? Do you miss the south? :) Looks like fun!

I'm all for the messy treats as they do make for the best photo ops (I agree with Amy : ) Ella is sooo beautiful.

I really can't believe all these babies are ONE now!!!Did you figure out what to get Ella for her birthday?

Chase loves licorice too - ssshhhh!
I thought those mountains in the background looked familiar.
Good-ol-Utah.

Cute neclace Jennifer :) My eye is always drawn to the funniest stuff :)

Kevin's G-Pa always wanted to give Syd black licorice when she was about, oh, 3 months old... yeah, do you think that was happening with a first time mom? :)

We're having a great time in Utah and will be here until July 23. I know, long time...long story, airline miles blocked out,etc.
We got Ella a new carseat for her birthday. One of those unexciting, practical gifts that you can get away with giving to a baby.
I actually heard that black licorice will help with constipation so maybe Kevin's grandpa had the right idea... j/k!
