4th of July 2016.....Utah Lake Style.......

Fourth of July antics. The kids enjoying the pool


Our fire the first night. Dave and Terry almost went to jail because of an argument with DA 5 OH about where a fire could be started. We thought in the middle, toward the back, in between the rigs that was FARTHER away from them....guess not.....

Went for a walk and saw some ducks....



More pool fun!

Topher drinking out of his toilet cozy...Merica!!!

Goblin Valley - Memorial Day Weekend 2016

On our way to Goblin Valley for the first time. Dusty is excited, Gizmo...not so much.


Terry bought me a new chair!

We stayed at a place called Temple Mountain. This is why....


The kids would hike up this mountain that had a ton of mines in it.

Brynley is the ONLY one that can defile my new chair!!!



Afternoon storms came in with a VENGEANCE!





Alex and Eden took Dave's side by side.

I must have tired of taking picures, because I don't have anymore after that. Tim brough Ashley too. It was fun, but the drive back was horrible. I would go back, but NOT during the holiday weekend!
