We are family...

My family came out for a week. We had a lot of fun together. Below are some recaps for you to enjoy!

We went to the Mormon Miracle Pageant in Manti. It is a beautiful drive and it was a really nice night. We got there around 6pm and had our picnic dinner and then we played card games and hung out until the pageant started at 9:30pm. It was a great evening, but we didn't end up getting home until 2am because the traffic getting out was so bad and it was an hour and a half from home. (We definitely slept in the next day).

After lunch we went to the Orem Summerfest, which was a blast! The girls were able to ride the carnival rides, we had snow cones and and lots of yummy treats. We stayed for the parade and then watched the fireworks afterward. It was nice to spend the day outside.

After a few hours, it DID get tiring.

All in all, it was a great trip! My parents also took my sisters to the Hogle Zoo, Antelope Island, and Bryce Canyon. My mom even helped me with a sewing project for Girl's Camp (I actually sewed)!!! It's always great to have my family here! :) I miss them already! If only we lived closer...
