Our Trip

We left Wednesday the 30th and headed for Mesquite, Nevada. An easy uneventful trip, we arrived in enough time to swim, have dinner and rest.

The kids with their pillow pets, a special surprise(no, they aren't really sleeping, but they did sleep a lot)

The lobby of Falcon Ridge Hotel - Highly recommend it. The rooms weren't anything fancy, but it was so quiet and no smoke, plus a hot breakfast
We went swimming in the 112 degree weather. It felt so nice - plus no sun, since it was 5:30 and the pool was in the shadow of the building

Thursday morning we were off to Kenan's house in Hooper, UT. We had a Delicious dinner and a great visit. We met his sweetheart, Stacy, everyone thought she was awesome. Friday morning they made us more delicious food.

The dog is doing tricks - - - - - - Kenan, Stacy and Nathan are relaxing

The boys couldn't keep away from the equipment, so Kenan helped them try it out

Friday we headed to Provo, UT for a family reunion. We had a great time. I posted pictures on that blog and also on Facebook here and here. There are way to many to post them here.
Sunday was a day left for the 4 of us. After going and going and going, we needed to rest. We had familiar food and watched a movie. Then off to Boondocks in Draper for a little fun.
They have this really cool 4D theater/roller coaster experience

Playing some arcade games

And Miniature golf. It was the coolest mini golf place I've seen. Bakersfield needs something like this.

Monday we slept in - way too late. But it was needed after all the late nights and early mornings. We packed up and headed to John's house. They had a very delicious brunch for us. Rick and the boys were able to come and we hung out for awhile. Dylan wasn't feeling well, so Amanda stayed with him. It was so nice to visit and the kids played.
Theo and Nathan ---Braden and Rick

Emily, Theo and Nathan -----They loved Aidan and Williams Harry Potter room. It's pretty Amazing

Everyone hanging out. John made homemade root beer AND homemade ice cream. Both were so, so good!

It was a great trip, very quick, but nice. And now we're glad to be home and ready to celebrate a 4th birthday!
Thanks to everyone for being so hospitable. We weren't able to see nearly as many people as we had hoped. We stayed at my aunt Nedra's house and didn't get to see her, we crossed paths. Luckily, we have a Sproul Reunion in November, so we're hoping to see everyone else then.
