Do you ever make great, big plans that you are way too excited for just to have every little thing go wrong? It totally happened to us. A couple weeks ago Austin found out he would have two weeks free while his friend that he is starting a company with was finishing up his MBA. They were anticipating a meeting in Salt Lake & after that, Austin would have time off. We decided to take his time off & set out on a two week roadtrip, we were pretty excited & had come up with a great route: Salt Lake City, Utah >> Bozeman, Montana >> Portland, Oregon >> Trinidad, California >> San Francisco, California >> Home. We we're going to make pitstops along the way, but this was our general idea & it was going to be great, until everything went awry.

The day we had decided to leave I ended up taking Milo to the doctor for a bad cough & cold which we found out was a case of RSV which is pretty scary for little babies to have, so we decided to stay home a couple more days to make sure he was getting better. Fast forward 5 days & we set out on the road with the approval of our doctors & no joke half way to Utah Cedar started coughing so badly. Luckily he did not have RSV, just a cold which was such a bummer because we had been on the mend! A day after getting to Utah I got the same cold Cedar had & then Austin got a cold, so we were all sick. After spending a couple days in Utah we we're trying to decide what to do for our trip since we had lost so much time from Milo's sickness. We thought to just cut out Montana, then we cut out Oregon, then we decided to just go San Francisco & down, which changed to an entirely new road trip schedule to go somewhere we had never gone, which also didn't work out & then we thought we had the perfect route planned through central Utah, but there ended up being flash floods! So we decided it was not meant for us to go on a road trip & we ended up just coming home! Major fail but still worth it.

Since we were all a bit sick for the majority of our trip, we didn't get together with as many friends as we wanted because we didn't want to get everyone else's kids sick, but we managed to hangout with a few friends which is always a good time. We ventured up the canyons as much as possible so I could get a good dose of fall & I absolutely loved it. The leaves were beautiful with so many vibrant greens, yellows, oranges & reds, it made me feel like I was in Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls anyone?). We drove through the Alpine Loop to Sundance & got breakfast & rode the lift up to see all of the colors & let Cedar run around. Utah in the fall is unlike anywhere else, I miss living there when the seasons change, it is always the best time.
