UtAh BlEsSiNgS

We headed to Utah over the weekend for blessings...baby blessings that is. We stayed with our good friends Josh and April again. Amazing family. Friday was spent shopping around and that night was a surprise from them to us...DESERT STAR! Anyone who's anyone in Utah NEEDS to go - an absolute must. They do spoofs on popular movies: twi-lite, My Big Fat Utah Wedding, Welcome Back Potter, and much more. We saw Pirates of the Car-rib-eee-an - so funny! The show of course was about Captain Jack Spratt, Will Doolittle, and Governess Swine battling Captain Barmitzvah. Here are Josh and April at the show:

Stopped for a bathroom break in an outhouse. Do you smell something funny?

Saturday was spent being tourists in SLC. We went to the Museum of Church History and Art. Companions taking a snooze...
Outside
We had to take some pictures of the beautiful temple
Nic's mad photo skills
The Allisons
Inside the Conference Center - Nic had never been
We went on the roof of the Conference Center and it was oober bright - we felt like pirates
Beautiful mountains
This picture was sandblasted on the wall on the rooftop - it is to represent that all nations, kindreds and tongues are all children of God. Nic got all 4 of us on the wall.

Sunday of course was spent with blessing the babies (Jameson and Remi). Sam and Josh did an amazing job on the blessings. The babes were wonderful the whole time. My entire family got to be there, so it was fun to see EVERYONE. Here is baby Jay puckering up.
Sweet Remi
The morning we left (Monday), there was this beautiful sunrise - it was quite difficult to take a decent picture as we were driving 75 mph...
Out in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road driving home from a great trip to UT...
