4th Festivities

For the 4th, we invited ourselves along with Lucas and Shellie and Legacy to go camping. I like to have Lucas plan the trips and we just tag along.

We went camping in the mountains above Vernal. On Saturday, we headed up to Flaming Gorge for some fun activities. We went to the resort for a Car Show and carnival games.

The boys love stuff like this. They got to squirt down a tower of plastic cups... we should set something up like this on our back yard!
Terek LOVES cotton candy!!!
They loved the cute pet goats!
This was HILARIOUS!!! At the Dam Visitor Center someone had glued quarters to the ground and the bench. It was fun to watch everyone try to pick them up. Terek got sooooo mad that he couldn't pick it up. It cracked me up!
We saw the Flaming Gorge Dam.
That night we watched the fireworks in Dutch John, UT by Flaming Gorge.
Sunday, Ryan and Lucas went golfing in Vernal. Shellie and I took the kids on a hike to see the Dinosaur tracks. It was nice overcast weather for a 3 mile hike up and down a mountain. If you click on the picture you may see the dinosaur track under Brenner's right foot.
When we got back to camp, it was only 35 degrees!!! I decided I didn't want to sleep in a tent when it was that cold. So I convinced Ryan and Lucas to break camp and head to Lucas and Shellie's for the night.
We got to see their cute place and the boys got to set off their fireworks in the cul-de-sac. Brenner and Joren had been packing around their fireworks for a week. They kept taking them out of the package to trade them and such.
Just so you know, Lucas, we had a super fun weekend... no complaints. And I know that we jinx you with the rain and bad weather camping, so I guess you'll have to go without us in the future!!!

That's so cool you went to Flaming Gorge - I've never been there and have always wanted to see it! The quarters is hilarious - you should've video taped Terek.
