A little over 3 weeks ago we drove out to Utah. Ettie did great on her first road trip! and it only took us 3 extra hours! Holy cow! Traveling with a baby is no walk in the park. We would stop to feed her... and then an hour later we would be hungry... and then we needed gas... and then we stopped to say hi to devin's grandpa... and then we were hungry again. It took FOREVER! But we learned from our rookie mistake and will try to make less stops during future road trips.

We finally made it to Utah and Ettie was immediately fought over! She is one loved girl!
She got lots of attention during the 3 weeks with family!
Then next morning Ettie and I met up with my dad and Ashley and Olivia for a princess 5k! It was to raise money for childhood cancer research so it was a great cause and so much fun! I loved seeing the cousins in their tutus and sunglasses and pink. They're the best!
We walked the whole thing and were very close to coming in last. But it was AWESOME!
Me and princess ettie!
Afterwards we met up with my mom at the Original Pancake house!
These grandparents love their babies!
Then we wanted some more physical activity, so we went up to hike around Silver Lake.
Ettie tried out her ergo for the first time and LOVED it!
That night we went with our grandparents to Texas Roadhouse to celebrate my grandma and grandpa's birthdays!
Here is ettie and her great grandpa doug!
And needless to say we were exhausted after our first day on vacation!
Ettie is such a good sport and traveler and an amazing sleeper!
I love it when she is swaddled!
