We were so excited to head to Utah as a family before Preston deploys to Afghanistan that we jumped at the chance, even if we were only given a weeks notice (gotta love the Army). What this really meant was my parents were in the process of moving into their new house and were making temporary residence at my Grandpa's. This made for a crazy few days but, we were so excited to see all of our family and introduce them all to Hayden that we didn't mind. We enjoyed large family dinners, 4 wheeling, playing cards, outdoor barbecuing, Swiss days and just visiting with everyone.
Hayden had a few first on this trip, including his first overnight trip away from home. His first airplane ride, which he did awesome on, in fact the flight attendant even commented that she had forgotten they had a baby on board he was so quite. He also got to meet his great grandparents for the first time, including Great Grandpa Alden Shurtz, which he is named after. Preston and I were also lucky enough to get our first outing out together since Hayden was born. We want to say thank you to all of our family for making our trip fun and exciting.
