In mid-February, Eric and I decided to take a road trip with our little family. We decided we'd take a long weekend and head over into Colorado - Craig, Steamboat Springs, Vail, Leadville - then head South to Santa Fe, New Mexico, and back to Salt Lake via the Moab route. As with all of our road trips, we spent a lot of time driving (surprising for a road trip right? ;)), sightseeing, stopping at anything that interested us, and trying out little Ma & Pa restaurants. On our road trips I always read a book out loud for Eric to listen to. This time it was "Chasing Lincoln's Killer", a good and very interesting book. The kids liked that every night we had a hotel booked with a pool so they got to go swimming each night - smart move and good bribing tool ;)!

Our friend Brianne got married and we went to their reception up the canyon. It was cold out but the kids wanted to play in the snow anyway....crazies!On Halloween we went to a trick-or-treating party at the Capitol. Mrs. Clause led the kids around to all of the offices to collect their loot. Reese and Ivan both loved saying "trick-or-treat", and got lots of candy. Only Ivan would pose for a picture :)
Eric gets to be a part of a lot of cool events because of his job. This is a picture of him with Governor and Mrs. Herbert, Lieutenant Governor and Mrs. Bell, and Chris Christie (the Governor of New Jersey) at the Governor's Gala.
