We are trying to fit in as many trips as possible to see family before baby boy is born. We had a great time with Jeff, Jenny, and kiddos in Portland. We went to a pumpkin farm and corn maze.

We also went to the Children's Museum where Sam learned the importance of dental hygiene.
And then off to the Portland Zoo!

Sam loved getting to know his cousins. At one point they were all around him chanting "Sammy". He was flexing his muscles and given them all knuckles. He was in heaven.

Super Quick September Utah Trip

(Written by Ryan) The last week in September we made a super quick Utah Trip. We flew in on Wednesday Night and out on a Sunday Morning. On Wednesday and Thursday we spent time with Bick and Poppy and stayed at their house. The first night we had Sam sleep in a closet:
Visit with Deenie
Fun with Bicky

The next day we were able to get a great tour of the Conference Center by one of it's newest volunteer tour guides, my Dad. Dad gave a great tour and knew a lot of details.

On Friday we went down to BYU to see them win in the the last few seconds against Utah State. We had a great group: The Andruses, The Hills, and the Whitakers.

Lots of people rushed the field. We walked down a few minutes later and took this picture :

We spent the night and part of the next day with Craig and McKay and Eddie.
Sam spent most of the night before chasing the dog around the house and shrieking. This picture wasn't representative, but I love the look on both of these dudes faces.

We spend some more time with the Hills and Grandpa and Grandma Lindgren. They showered Sam with Elmo gifts and even dressed him up as Elmo. Sam is 100% obsessed with watching Elmo. Here is Elizabeth and ElmoSam playing the Piano:

And here is Sam and Grandma playing a tune:
On Sunday we spent some time with Gunnell's and then we were off to the airport.
