Visiting family and friends

We've been spending quite a bit of time lately trying to visit with our family and friends- near and far. Last week we went to Utah so Charlotte could meet everyone there.
Plane tickets have been SOOO expensive lately, so we ended up flying out of Reagan instead of BWI. It was a really long trip with a layover in Denver each way. Charlotte was a good traveler- for a toddler. She pointed out every plane she saw... in this picture she set up her pony to show him the planes too. We flew on Frontier- they have animals on the tails and wings of their planes- our first plane had a cougar on it and every time Charlotte looked out the window she'd point and say "meow." That got pretty old after 4 hours. ;)

Charlotte has so many people who love her! Here she is with her great great aunt Elizabeth. That's part of where Charlotte got her middle name. (It is also my mom's middle name.)


Charlotte worked on this puzzle with Daddy while visiting great grandma Nichols. Charlotte loved all of the socializing- but she did not like all of the riding in the car!

This is a view from the Alpine Loop. It's a scenic drive between Provo and Alpine that goes behind Mt. Timpanogos. Rob and I had both kinda forgotten how gorgeous Utah's mountains are. Charlotte would point out the window and describe the features for us, "rock. tree. rock. water." Oh yeah, she's an observant one!

Rob took this picture near the top of Big Cottonwood Canyon north of Salt Lake City. It had been snowing and the clouds were still really low, although this was in the afternoon.

Well, I will post more pictures from our trip when I get them from friends. Our camera batteries died after the first day or so and we kept forgetting to pick up some new ones!

Also, I had a check-up today and our baby boy is doing very well. :) He loves to kick the microphone when they listen to his heartbeat. According to our baby widget to the right of this post we have 99 days to go! Woo-hoo!!
