We have never been to Lake Powell or Grand Canyon as a family, and I have never been myself. It's something Chad and I really wanted to take the kids to. On our way down we passed Fillmore, Utah's first state capitol. We made an unplanned stop to the statehouse, which I highly recommend. It was worth our time. Mira, Ella, and Micah are standing in front of what I believe was a replica of an old cabin:
I'm so glad we went. Recently, Chad said to me, "You know, I've decided something. I've been working long enough and have put in plenty of time at work. I think we need to do more family trips. And so I'm going to make time to do it. If I need to take a few days off here and there so we can, I'm going to." That was music to my ears! It's fun to make these memories. I love looking back at our pictures and knowing we are doing neat things together as a family.
