Sophie's First Road Trip

This last Friday Davey and I thought it would be fun to surprise my mother in law Patti for her birthday and take Sophie on her first road trip to Cedar City.  We packed our stuff and loaded it in the car and off we went to Cedar. And yep Sophie slept the whole three hours down. We arrived at 11:00 pm and Patti had NO idea that we were coming, so we left Sophie in her car seat  at the front door and rang the doorbell and ran. It was so much fun watching Patti's face as she open the door to find Sophie there.

And Sophie was excited to see Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Danielle.
While we were in Cedar we thought it would be fun to go to Zion and hike around. Well after driving 45 minutes to Zion, we got there and it was crowed and cold.  We took a few pictures and jumped back in the car. Instead of hiking in Zion we drove around Zion. But it was still fun.

After Zion we went out to dinner and did a little shopping in St. George, we headed back home to do some s'mores and go in the hot tub. It was fun sitting around the camp fire talking and laughing. 

On Sunday it was Patti's birthday. Poor Sophie was not feeling good. She had a running nose and was coughing. So we decided to keep her home from church. But I went to to relief society to hear Patti give her lesson. She did such an amazing job.
Snuggling with Sophie,  it was so sad that she was not feeling good :(

Happy Birthday to the best mother in law and grandma! We are so lucky to have you in our lives. Thank you for raising a wonderful son and letting me be part of your family. I can't ask for a better mother in law and a better grandma to Sophie. We love you!

This past weekend Sophie has discovered her hands and her tongue. It was so funny to watch her stick her tongue in and out. AND Sophie rolled over for the first time. My baby girl is getting so big. She needs to slow down. I just love her so much. 

It was a fun weekend with family!
