Catching Up: Utah Vacation

My final grades were due yesterday (insert cheers here!), so now I can enjoy the last 2 weeks of the kids' summer vacation. I have a lot of grand plans, which include reading a good book, taking a nap, and catching up on my blogging (oh, and I should probably clean the bathrooms--to say they aren't looking so great is an understatement). 

So, to catch up on blogging about our Utah vacation . . . We had a great time, of course. We decided kind of last-minute to leave 3 days earlier than planned to get out of the heat and have more time with family, and I'm so glad we did. The trip was already packed with fun, and it was nice to have the extra days. 

We went to North Ogden's pool one day (no pics there). Another day we took the kids to a splash pad while the men golfed, after which they joined us at the park for a picnic dinner and kickball. 
We got to spend a lot of time with Grandma, which I'm so glad about.

 Another day we met everyone at Cowabunga Bay, which was perfect for the kids. After swimming, we went to the Red Iguana, to the Church history museum, and to City Creek.

On the day we'd planned on having Laura take our family pics, it rained. The entire day. We did manage to go to the local park and have her squeeze some pics in, though, in the evening. It sprinkled a bit, but we were glad she was willing to adapt and let us benefit from her talents. That day we took the kids to Brigham's little museum with a kids' pioneer area. They really liked it. 


 On Friday, we headed up to the cabin and enjoyed the mountains and the 4-wheelers, of course.

Thanks for coming up and spending so much time with us, family! And thanks for letting us eat your food and mess up your house, mom and dad!
