Our First: Blog Post and Road Trip

So we finally decided to stop tinkering with our blog and actually use it! So we figured to put our first big trip on as our first post. We decided that we needed to go to St. George and Kannab to see all of the Great-Grandmas that Jack had never met, plus we had a family reunion going on in St. George so we figured we should pack up all our stuff and head down. For his first major road trip Jack did really well! He used to hate the car, but now he thinks it is great.

When we got down to St. George, Jack decided that the king size bed in our hotel room was going to be his. I know what you are all saying and yes he is only seven months old, but he is in charge!

So family reuninion has been the same for years and years. This year it was a little strange, but hey whose family is not strange? The main reason we went down was to see all of the Great-Grandmas Jack had never met before. So before we left St. George we stopped by to see Great-Grandma Padovich.

After that we hoped in the car and drove the back roads to Kannab to see Great-Grandma Cloward. We also got to saty at Marens Aunt and Uncle's little hotel called Aikens Lodge down by Zions. For being in the middle of no where it really was nice and Jack had a great time playing on the bed!

On the way home we had to deicide if we were going to take the long way home or the short way. We decided to take the scenic way and drive trough Gunnision where we got to see Great-Grandma J and Grandma Jane.

It is not like they have never seen Jack before, but we figured this was a Grandma trip we might as well go see all the Grandmas. After we left gunnison we decided that we should make the Grandma trip complete and go see Chad's mom who has decided to be called Grammy to avoid confusion.

After that we went and saw Great-Grandma Yaple, she was so excited to see Jack. She has not been feeling well and we have not been over to see her a lot lately even though she lives so much closer than all the other Great-Grnadmas.

All in all it was a great trip, and all the Grandma's enjoyed seeing Jack, but he was glad to be home and wanted to just hang out and snuggle on his own couch!
