Last weekend when we took my mom home, we stopped in SLC to drop Jeff off to hang out with his brothers and help with a bike race for his brother Steven, hang out with my brother, Doug, pick up Jeff's sister, Lori, to ride down to Hurricane with us, got to finally meet our newest niece and nephew, Falon and Corban (I don't have a picture of Falon), and we also had breakfast with my Grandma. It was the fastest trip to Utah we have ever made and Ethan did awesome. We have made that trek many times with Ethan and it is an awfully long (18 hours) ride but he made the best out of it and only got a little restless just before we were getting ready to get out of the car for the day. It was fun to see our family, even if it was for only the day. We made the most of our time and took Ethan and cousin Avery up to Zion National Park to ride my dad's shuttle bus as I only got to see him for a few hours. We also played at Hurricane's new splash pad and then Ethan and I had to run through the Las Vegas airport to make it to our plane (new experience, haven't ever had to run before).

We dropped Jeff off in SLC and he, along with his brothers, George and Brian, and their wives, Brittney and Lexie, surprised his brother Steven, coming to be his race support for his 5th LATOJA bike race, Logan, Utah to Jackson Hole, Wyoming. They were the Angry Birds crew handing him food and drink supplies while he rode his race with a personal best time of 9 hrs 24 mins.
And finally...Our lifesaver friends, Kit, Melinda and Thomas, have helped us out once again with Ethan getting a new bike. He now has a 16" lightening McQueen bike, which he tells me is the "fastest bike ever."
