      Preflop: I'm not too fond of limping in general. However, this is a FR game, and you are in early position, and players at this limit are generally very passive and loose. Raising is bad if we end up getting 2-3 callers behind us.

      In this exact situation, I think it's acceptable. If you were in the CO/BU, and it was folded to you after UTG+1 limps, then you should always raise here to isolate him from the other players.

      Flop: We probably have the nuts here, assuming they almost always raise preflop with AA/QQ. UTG+1 makes a weird bet and since this is a limped pot we need to start building the pot now. I think your raise is fine, though you can make it slightly larger to 15cents.

      Turn: I will just ignore UTG+1's bet, and bet 50 like you did here.

      River: Well we do lose to two pairs now which is now a stronger full house. But I think this is still a good card for us. If they have AX, they are never folding once they make trips. Easy shove on the River as I think they have more worse AX than AQ/A2/A3 type of hands.
