Trip to Utah

Wow, I am really behind on the blogging. It's been an exciting month for us, so in my effort to catch up, I'm going to do 2 different posts.

So for this post -- we flew home to spend the 24th of July weekend with family and we had such a good time seeing everybody and eating good food (which feels like all we did was eat...)

We 2 bbq's with Cory's family and they made him a spine cake to celebrate his graduation.
They also got him some 'bling' (it says #1 Grad)

His brother Nathan got him a pass to do the I-Fly at the new Salamon Center in Ogden. It looked like so much fun! Shawn Bradley happened to be in Cory's same group. Shawn is 7'6". Cory is 5'6". Too funny!
In the wind tunnel

Watch this video -- like I said, it looked so fun!!

And what trip home in July is complete without swimming in his parents' pool? The boys decided they should have a cannon-ball contest...


We also spent a morning at Willard Bay, with my family, playing on the water. This is Cory wakeboarding.

And of course, we had to go to Lagoon! My dad got some good pictures of us on the Rattlesnake Rapids Ride. I love the shuffle that goes on to get out of the way of the big waterfall...

Or, in Carly's case, get to the waterfall... it was soooo hot!

And we also went with my extended family to see the Oquirrh Mountain temple open house. It was gorgeous inside, I loved the color scheme and all the marble. So pretty!
So there you have it -- the highlights of our trip home. We had a great time and we are grateful for such wonderful family members. Stay tuned for pictures of Cory's graduation... that will be the next post...

Yay! A new post! I've been wondering when it would make it up. I'm glad the trip to Utah was a good time- we loved seeing you guys even though Doug and Emmy's was hot. The leftovers weren't too bad... And I don't have a Davis County Library card yet so I didn't get the Zookeeper's daughter and I might just skip it. I'm excited for you to read the Hunger Games! So much to discuss.

Looks like you had plenty to do on your trip!

Looks like so much fun! That last picture of you and your family at the temple is beautiful! It really is a georgous temple! When we went through the open house and we walked into the Cel. room Sam noticed the shandaler and said it looked like a shooting star, I thought that was so sweet. I am so glad you got to come and see your families. Fun memories!

I'm glad you had such a great trip! Looks so fun! I love the picture in front of the temple!
Cory looked like he had the time of his life 'flying.' :) We can't wait to see you!!!
