Road Trip! Wooooooo!

I know I have taken a long time posting pictures of our trip last week, but Jared and I came home and promptly got sick.  We are finally coming out of our fuzzy headed haze, so no more excuses.
We left on Friday, July 23 to take Jared's first road trip.  We left at 4:00 p.m. because we wanted to learn about Friday rush hour in the bay area the hard way.  No, silly, we just weren't smart enough to think that one through.  We left at 4:00 because that was when Jared got up from his nap and Todd finished his work day.  This choice added at least an hour and a half to our drive to Utah.  We were planning to camp between Reno and Winnemucca, but we ended up staying in a hotel.  This means that we will still need one more night of camping to achieve Todd's new year's resolution.
We got to Jared's great-grandparents' house in Murray on Saturday afternoon.  Aren't my Gs cute?
We didn't stay there long, though, because we had told my mom that we would be in Logan in time for dinner.  We only stayed in Logan for two days, but we packed a lot into it.
Jared got to spend lots of time with his Grandma Jill.
He had his first taste of watermelon, then spent the rest of the trip asking for "wah-tow," which his grandmas were delighted to slip him behind my back in copious quantities.
Jared and Uncle Seth played together in the park, but swinging loses some of its appeal when it is over 100 degrees outside.
To beat the heat, we went up Logan Canyon for a cookout with Uncle Ryan, Auntie Jordanne, honorary Uncle Chris, Grandma, and Uncle Seth.  We all got very dirty, especially a certain little dirt eater, but it was nice and cool under the trees.

While we were in Logan I got my biannual haircut.  I can't believe how much cheaper it is to get a haircut in Utah than in California.  I don't think I need to post haircut pictures, since there will be plenty of pictures posted.  We also went to see a $3 movie.  That means that, for all four of us who went, it was still cheaper than an evening movie in San Mateo.  I'm so depressed to be Californian right now.
We left Logan for Idaho on Tuesday morning.  It was so fun to see everyone that Jared and I decided to go back with Faith next week, when she returns en route to school.  We missed Annika, who was studying in Germany while we were there, but we will see her, and all of you beloved Logan friends and family, soon.
