We went to Utah for a Wetzel family reunion over the 4th of July weekend. Matt has 7 siblings. All 8 of them hadn't been together since 2001. Everyone was there. It was great. His brother living in Japan even flew in for the occasion, and his Aunt drove his Grandma down from Montana to see everyone. We had lots of fun.

We went rafting on the Sevier River in Southern Utah.

We watched the Richfield city parade and fireworks on the 4th.

Matt, his brothers, and his dad hiked in Fish Lake National Forest and spotted at least 50 elk.

The guys went hunting for jack rabbits one morning.

We spent a day swimming at Palisade Lake. Willa and Matt went swimming together for the first time. She seemed to love the water even though it was chilly.

Willa learned to tripod while we were there. We're so proud!
Willa met 7 of her cousins and lots of aunties and uncles.
We went to Cove Fort and Ikea. And we spent lots of time visiting with family and taking family photos.

1. Thanks! I feel like this is one of the worst haircuts of my life. I literally went and got a $10 haircut at one of those walk in places. It's finally growing out.

2. - I love the Gap. But I bought it over 5 years ago. I bought it back in my bikini days because I loved it and knew one day I would be happy to have a cute one piece. I spent more money on it than I've ever spent on a bathing suit. But I am learning with bathing suits - you get what you pay for.

3. Willa and her cousin, Azzie, had such a special little connection. Azzie could get her to laugh better than anyone else can.

We really do need to visit each other. It has been way to long.
