The kids and I got to go on vacation this last week. I haven't been on a vacation in years. We just went to Salt Lake, but we saw family and stayed with some friends for the week. The first thing we did was go tot he zoo. I LOVE the ZOO! I don't know about the kids but I had a great time.
Day 2 was all about the WATER. What a fun day. We all went home a little redder then we then when we showed up but it was well worth it.
The third day was great. Marty had been working all week but ended up in Salt Lake in time to go to the Oquirrah Mountain Temple with us. It was beautiful, but I left my camera in the car so I have no pics of it. Then after that we headed down to Manti, UT to the Mormon Miracle Pageant. I had never been before so I was really excited. It was really awesome to watch, but about 20 minutes in it started to rain, and it rained on us the rest of the night :( I still don't know how those performers didn't slide down that hill!?!?! They had booths there to look at and they had one with my favorite thing......Twisted Tators! If you haven't ever tryed these I highly recommend them. They are sooooo good.
Ok, so last but not least, the next day on our way home Marty suggested we stop at this place that he sees on the side of the road all the time but has never stopped. I know I thaught the same thing....weird! But it was the Fremont Indian state park. It was very cool. Ity had trails to hike that takes you through the mountains were the Fremonts lived. So you get to see all the petroglyphs and pictographs that they left behind. It was really cool.
A little bit down the road they had a camp ground that had a huge teepee at it. The kids had a lot
of fun in that thing.
We had a super fun week. Thanks to everyone we shared it with. We love you and are soooo glad we got to spend time with you this year.
