Our Trip to Utah

It was time to head to Utah and visit the family along with some appointments that we needed to square away. We packed up the car and headed to my parents home to spend the week. Upon arrival we had to make sure that the trains were set up. No trip to Grandpa's is complete without the train set on the floor for all to play with.Making sure that there were plenty of mishaps with the bridge.
Look mom, the bridge is out again. All this fun began at the crack of dawn and went till bedtime every night. But you gotta love G&G for letting them leave it out.

Next we went to Lagoon. I love this place and this was the year that Sweet-boy was finally able to do all the rides. So what does Grandpa suggest but to go on the old white roller-coaster first. Sweet-boy survived the coaster but he was not so sure he wanted to go again on the ride. But he did try alot more then last year and that is great. Drama Queen on the other hand is a total adrenaline junky - the faster the ride the better and she dragged me along on each and everyone. That is alright cause I like the speed too.
Merry-go-round, tearing up the town.

Grandpa and Sweet-boy on the Odyssey ride. It gets you wet but not as wet as some of them.

We had such a great day and it was over too soon. The best would have been if The Man could have been there, but someone had to work. We will sure be going back for another day of fun.

Another day we went to the Oquirrh Temple Open house. We had to wait in a tent that had big tubes pumping in the air-conditioning.

Sweet-boy loved standing in front of that and being blown away.
It was amazing and so beautiful. The kids loved it and were so glad that G&G were there to enjoy it too.

My wonderful family - I love you guys!!!

Still a handsome couple after all these years.

Lastly it was our annual trip to Ragging Waters. Thank you again Dr. Madsen we love our trips there.
It was a wonderful time to go to Utah, perfect weather, wonderful company and alot of time with my most favorite people in the world.

I have not been to Lagoon for AGES! I keep thinking I should take my kids there some time. Love the temple pics. That temple is right across the street from one of my dear friend's house. Wouldn't that be a great view?!
