Mack Goes to Utah

as most of you know, we took mack out west to meet B's family at the beginning of the month. it was so much fun and, of course, mack was a huge hit!

it was so great to see family, especially since it had been 2 years since i'd been out to utah to see them and it being mack's first time. we had lots of fun activities planned, including a 4th of july parade, a baby shower for mack, and a birthday party for me. :)

i won't bore you with all the details, so here are the highlights:

mack was very popular with all his cousins.


i loved spending time with them, too!

he loved watching his first parade with daddy.

we took him for his very first picnic.


he tried his first popsicle. the verdict: delicious!

he got lots of great swag at his shower.

i did several photo shoots while i was there. (this was super exciting, because i've built up a pretty good business locally, but this was my first time to ever work out of state. awesome!)






we were sad to leave, but vacations can be exhausting.

Looks like you had a great time!! You're so right, vacations are fun, but sometimes I feel like I need a vacation after my vacation just to recover.


Love the pictures....as always!

He is so adorable!! Also, that Muchkin snack cup you got at the shower... amazing and invaluable. You'll love it when he tries to dump his snacks all over the carpet and can't. :)
