Summer 2011--Trip to Utah, part 2

The 4th of July in Utah County is amazing. They just passed a law that you can have aerial fireworks that shoot 150 feet. So we did fireworks in Nancy and David's neighborhood, and then we stood and watched all the amazing fireworks that were taking place all over the valley. It was beautiful!
The kids had fun setting off the fireworks in the front yard.

We were all tired but we took a nap and then everyone was ready to dress up for the evening activities. Beth and Mallory were matching.
Rich with Anna and her painted red hair.We spent the rest of the week having fun together. We went to see a movie one day. Another day we went to the American Fork public pool. The kids had a great time together!

The last day was Adam's 1oth birthday and all week we had been watching for good weather to go to Seven Peaks, which is a local Provo waterpark. We finally went on Friday, despite gathering clouds. The day turned out to be great. Although there were some summer showers, it was warm. Later in the day, the sun came out. We had a great time. Jacob was having so much fun he didn't even slow down to eat! Here are Adam, the birthday boy, and Jeffrey. Jeffrey told Rich and I over and over that this was the best day of his life!Jacob was so fun to have along. (He attended EFY later in the summer, so he just hung out with us all week.) He would take a couple of kids and a tube up to one of the runs and then come down with them. He did this over and over, all day long. His energy never gave out. Even at the end of the day, he was still grabbing a tube and kids to go with him to go down the slides! This time, it was Beth and Mallory.

Here they come!Getting out
The next morning, we picked David and Daniel up at 7 am and headed home. It was a great trip! David and Nancy are so fun to be with. Utah is beautiful! We were glad to get home to Katie, though.

Looks like it was a fun week. I love it when the cousins get to spend time together and become closer friends.
