Back to our old stomping grounds:)

Last weekend we had a family reunion in Provo.  I thought it would be fun to head up a few days early and spend some time with our friends.

The first night we got there, we headed to Daybreak to see Sam (sorry no pix)...  The boys played with Sam at a few of their favorite parks in Daybreak.

The next morning we met the Headricks at Classic Fun Center... it's one of our favorite places to go in the summer.  We picked up Sam on the way and took her with us... man I've missed that girl:)
 I'm so glad Rachel has moved back from Denver even though I don't live up north any more... at least I can visit more often.
 We headed straight from Classic to Hogle zoo to spend the afternoon with the Stringhams and the Brittons.  The new polar bear exhibit was the best part of the zoo... you could sit in an air conditioned building and watch the polar bear swim back and forth and do a summersault off the glass... he was cool;)  The kids had fun seeing their friends, but I think I enjoyed seeing mine more... so much more that I never remember to take pix of me with my girlfriends:(
 We always stay at Chad and Melissa's house... they are so nice to let us stay there.  Brenner and Cierrah used their toys to build their own zoo... rather creative:)
 The reunion was at lunch time... (no pix) and after the reunion, Ryan took the boys swimming and the girls headed back to Melissa's to get ready for a baby shower for Sara...  You can see more details of the shower on my craft blog, Larcie Bird.
 The next day we spent the whole day at Lagoon!!!  Our nephew Alexx works there so he got us in for only $11 each!!!  We went with Kelli, Cali, Kiersten and Alexx for the first half of the day... they left us and we were on our own.  We went on almost every ride and went to Lagoona Beach.  There were a few rides that Joren and Terek couldn't go on.... more Terek couldn't go on, but we still had tons of fun!!!
It was a super fun mini vacation and now we're back to reality... school starts in just over a week...eek!!!

Yeah...why don't we ever do that?

Probably has to do with trying to herd eight children along on a hot day.

What a fun trip to SLC. I haven't been to the zoo in ages! Same with Lagoon. Glad you had a good time...yes now it's back to reality. That's never fun!
