Let's Get Away

Jeff planned a quick "let's get away" family trip to Salt Lake City (we can't go far with an infant). It was nice to be together as a family...including Heather and Eliot, because they are our only family up here.

Sofia's suitcase is a winner. People stared as they saw a 6'4 good-looking 26 year old man rolling it along. Thanks dad for carrying baby's stuff. Thanks Carmy and Sarah for buying it for her.

On Saturday before the Bliss came up, we strolled around SLC, wandering through stores. It was cold. When we got back, Sofia looked like that scene from Dumb and know, then one with dried buggers all down their face. It was gross. But look at this picture. Can we say Ensign magazine?

We stayed at the Marriott downtown and it had beautiful views of Temple Square. But Sofia's fav thing were the fluffy pillows. We got there and she staked her claim over the king size bed. Who could fight her.

Heather and Eliot joined us for the evening. We tried a new restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised. The Bluelemon is definitely somewhere we will return. It's an organic place with the best butternut squash soup (almost as good as Spark, Laura!)

They also joined us for a dip in the pool that night. Well, it took Jeff an hour to convince me to let our precious almost 4 month old go in to a germ infested public pool. I still get the creeps thinking I let her in. Oh well, she lived. We didn't have a pool diaper, so as ghetto parents, we tied a plastic bag around her diaper. It worked.

This suit is too big for her (6-9 month), but look how adorable she looks! And check out her legs. Loving them.

Heather would only go in if I went in. So, Heather didn't get to go in. Jeff knows that I don't like pools unless there is a hot Sun to tan my body. Why would I want my post baby body to get into a bathing suit if not necessary?

Does she look like me?

She loved the pool.

Don't you love it when babies get crazy eyes? These are Sofia's crazy eyes...

On the ride home, she got a little restless, so I jumped in the back seat with her. And ended up filming her. I love love love this little girl.

Sofia, we hope you loved our first weekend getaway with you.


  1. Sofia has crazy eyes like me! Yes!

  2. Looks like you had a fun weekend! Wish we could have met you in Salt Lake (or Boise)! :)

  3. You are a genius. Wrapping the diaper in plastic. Forget little swimmers! P.S. Although I still favor the 40-year-old comb-over Sofia, she is still super cute in these photos too.
