the pictures that followed or, our trip in pictures with subtitles


on our way up, we stopped in las vegas, where our job was clearly cut out for us by pollo, who found an empty liquor bottle and did the first thing that came to his mind: act drunk. with glee.
the boys, in the bellagio. from left to right: azeem, kevin, pollo (arul) and christian
outside the temple
little mouse at my aunt's house. my aunt is about to become a grandmother for the first time and has collected the most wonderful toys for a little granddaughter over the years. ava was in heaven.
grandma and grandpa's house. ava was surprisingly kind to her eager great-grandparents. she climbed right up into their laps and told them all about herself. as i was putting her to bed she told me, "mom, i really love grandma and grandpa."
proof that seth was there, eyeing heavily the bowl of m&ms that grandma left on the coffee table. what i want to know is this, how does he even know what m&ms are anyway? why do these children come with built-in sugar sensors?
on the way home. utah is one of the most beautiful places i've ever seen. and autumn is one of its best seasons. i'm so glad we were there. two of these were taken as the sun rose on our ride home. do you see the moon? gorgeous.
my favorite picture of the trip:

I LOVE that first Rocky Mountain shot! It's breathtaking! Sort of looks like it should be a scene shot out of Lord of the Rings or something. So dramatic. Also, those pictures of Ava at your Aunt's house are beautiful. I especially love the black and white.

that first picture is GORGEOUS! you are so right about utah having a beautiful fall season. i miss it desperately now that we live in a place that doesn't have fall.

Looks like you had a lot of fun...good thing that you have fair children or you would never know them in the picture...Ryan blends in with everyone else and looks like he is where he belongs:
