so i'll just show you the pictures i obviously thought were important enough to take in the first place.
*this might be a long one*
october 3 we jetted off to salt lake city, stayed with some of dennis' mission companions, did way too much shopping, took in general conference, went to his mission reunion, and just enjoyed being together.
next, we flew to a much warmer climate, pheonix az! it was both of our first time therem and we loved it! definitely going back in the future. we stayed at an awesome hotel, with an amazing pool, and that is where we parked our butts for three days.
i was super nervous for what flying with a baby in tow would be like, but honestly it was a breeze. we did our best to plan our flights around times that our little willy would naturally be sleeping, which was a life saver! he slept for the most part of all three flights, and even when he was awake he loved looking back at all the new faces. we definitely learned a lot for future reference, but i think it was a pretty successful first go at it.
we loved having our first getaway as a family, but we really are happy to be home and back into the routine of life again.
