Ellie’s First Road Trip

Our little E is quite the traveler! We headed down for a quick trip to St. George last weekend. She only woke up once on the ride down, right as we were stopping for dinner. The way back – she slept the entire way (and so did I)! I don’t think that Ellie was put down once the entire weekend except to maybe get her diaper changed. She was totally and completely spoiled. Zac helped Gramma give Ellie a bath, he jumped right in the tub with his swimsuit! We got to show her off at church on Sunday, she helped Gramma and Erin cheer at a soccer game on Saturday, and B and I got lots of extra sleep!

Which baby is Ellie!?

(When all my siblings were babies we would line them up with all our dolls for a picture. We had to continue the tradition with Ellie! Some of the dolls were bigger than she was!)

  2. I love love love all of these pictures of my loved ones. What a wonderful gift that you made the trip to St. George to share baby Ellie with the family. The baby picture is funny and reminded me of how your mom would do that with you all. *love that you used the pink quilt* (is that yours or Erins?) I can't remember who I made it for? Nice to see it with a new baby on top!! Much love to you and Brian and E.
