Utah in November

The week before Thanksgiving Chloe and I flew out to Utah, with Riley following a few days later, to visit with family and take a much needed break. Before Riley showed up, I was able to spend some time with my mom, step-dad, sisters, and crazy little nephews. Chloe warmed up to everyone pretty fast, for Chloe. It was so nice to visit with everyone and just relax.
Once Riley got there we spent time with his family. His sister and new husband came down from Boise and his brother and his family came form Colorado. It was so much fun getting to spend time with so many people that we love. One of the highlights of our trip, aside from Riley whipping all of our booties at Hearts, was going to a BYU basketball game. And, because we're crazy BYU fans we couldn't help but dress our baby as the cutest little cougarette cheerleader ever! Eventhough it was well past her bedtime, Chloe loved the game. She was smiling, laughing, and dancing the whole time.
All good things must come to an end, and sadly, ours ended in the stomach flu. First Riley got it the night before he left to go home, then his little sister Chelsea, and then me. It was NO fun.
Luckily for me, I had my amazing in-laws there to watch Chloe, even taking her to church with them, while I tried to sleep and get better. Then, I went back to my mom's house and the pampering continue. By Monday morning I was feeling pretty good, which worked out perfectly because I still hadn't seen my dad and step-mom. After a fun lunch with them and my sisters, we headed back to mom's to back up for the long plane ride home. We loved getting to visit with so much of our family and share our little monkey with them. We love you all like crazy and already miss you lots and lots. Sorry I don't have more pictures, I was too busy enjoying myself to remember to pull out the camera.

I'm sad we didn't get to see you guys while you were here! I'm glad it was a fun visit (except for being sick), though!
