We were the first of the bunch to arrive in Salt Lake City, so we ate breakfast at a local coffee roasting company and then toured downtown SLC before heading into the mountains. Gray insisted daddy put gel in his hair and I think it makes him look a lot older.
We found a short trail while we were driving through the mountains, but after a few minutes of hiking we decided we were not properly dressed for the cold, howling winds and headed back to the car.
There was also a local artist and farmers' market a few blocks from our hotel. Gray made a few crafts, including a "pot holder" which he sewed on a hand-crank Singer.
Finally it was time to pick up Aunt Amy and Holten from the airport. Reunited at last!
We made a beeline for the hotel where the boys swam for hours before bathing and watching a movie.
We celebrated Father's Day at In and Out Burger on the way from SLC to Park City. It doesn't get much better than burgers and shakes for this crowd!
We took the scenic drive to Park City (much to Susu's dismay) and stopped at this awesome overlook called Guardsman Pass.
We also happened across this guy on the drive to Park City. He was right at the entrance to a neighborhood and seemed to be posing for us to take a picture.

Normally, these fellas love the hotel swimming pool, but they were more obsessed with the jacuzzi tub in Pappa and Susu's bathroom. They asked for a bath every day!
Learning the art of shuffleboard
We drove over to check out Sundance one afternoon and it was my favorite part of the trip. The boys didn't seem to notice the gorgeous setting, they were more interested in climbing and jumping off this boulder.

I could have stayed at Sundance forever. Pictures just don't do it justice.
Back in Park City, we also checked out Olympic Park where they held several events for the 2002 Olympics. These were the ski jump venues and there were also luge and bobsled tracks nearby (see below).
We went hiking one day while Pappa and Susu took the boys swimming. This was at the top of a 10,000 foot peak near Guardsman Pass. So beautiful!
This was the view from the top. We made it!
As we were checking out the shops on Main Street in Park City one day, it started snowing! We ended up getting about two inches. Then the next day it was 70 degrees. Bizarre!
Michael took the boys on a road trip to Dinosaur National Monument which was three hours away. They came back extremely excited and I think it was one of the highlights of their trip.
They couldn't believe they got to touch the "old bones."
Checking out the petroglyphs
The boys also earned their junior ranger badges and got stamps in their national parks passports. So much fun!
