Beginning of June

The last few days in May my sister in law and I drove out to Utah with the kids to hang out in Utah with family. Our drive to Utah was pretty fun. Lots of talking and getting to know each other and lots of laughing. I drove all the way through and got in around 2 in the morning. My plan was to stay in Utah for over 15 days. I stayed at my other sister in laws house for about 5 days and of course Bentley was over the moon cause he got to hang out with his all time favorite cousin for 5 days straight. We got to take the kids to an aviary, the zoo and temple square along with the kids playing all day long. By day 5 however Bentley came down with a fever and not wanting to get up or do anything which always makes me worry since this boy always have energy even when sick so that's how I know he isn't feeling well. Thank goodness we had already had tons of fun with his cousins.

Since Bentley wasn't feeling well I figured it was time to head up to my moms house so I could get some help with Bentley as he normally gets super needy when he is sick. My mom was more than happy to have us there earlier than expected. At my moms house we just laid low and got some much needed rest. By the next day Bentley was back to himself so I figured maybe he had been dehydrated or something funky. My brothers played with him tons, took him on bike ride and walks. Then he got to play with his friend that lives in my moms neighborhood. We got to go to a splashpad which was nice since they don't have those out here. We also got to hang out at my cousins house and had a sleepover there. Bentley got spoiled and even got a massage by tia Lissetti. Bentley also got to help my mom is the garden which always turns into him soaking my mom and my mom soaking him back, probably one of his favorite things to do with my mom. One night after my father came home from work we went out fishing all as a family and that was really fun and peaceful. Getting to see those beautiful mountains and getting the summer breeze was heavenly. I do love Utah! Another day Bentley got to go on a date with my parents, they took him to his favorite kid museum, which he had asked for and then took him to their favorite ice cream shop where both my parents were forced to give us their ice creams and share with Bentley because he didn't like the one he chose, the beauty of being the only grandbaby they do what he says.

We got to hang out with our friend Tanya and Chewy one day at a pool date which was so much needed. Bentley had so much fun and I did too with Tanya she sure knows how to have a crowd laughing nonstop. Shortly after that Bentley came down with pink eye which was no fun, he became super needy and wanted to badly to play with other kids but knowing he had pink eye I didn't want him giving it to someone else so I made the decision to leave Utah 6 days earlier than expected. I was pretty bummed since I didn't get to see most of our friends that I was planning on seeing.
