Every year AJ goes off for two weeks with the guys, to the middle of nowhere to run around and play with grown up toys. Ok it really isn’t as fun as I make it sound. He goes for his annual training (AT) with his national guard unit.  This year I wanted to go somewhere as well, especially after having the new baby and not really having a vacation yet this year.

I knew I wanted to go out west to visit my family, especially since my sister and sister-in-law both had new babies too! After much research and debate I determined driving would be cheaper, especially in the Prius.

After three full days on the road, with many stops along the way, we arrived at destination Utah. One of Dawn’s lessons on this trip is to use the camera and take different photos using the various options and features. Here are a few along the way across the midwest.
