We had a very fun-filled 2 weeks in Utah this summer.
Holly taught Jacob how delicious dirt is.
He does this scrunchy face almost every time a camera is around. I love it.
Delaney showed us her lady-like eating techniques.
James worked on his aerobics in the backyard.
Tim, Julianne and Taylor did the Sky Coaster at Lagoon.
We waited around for a long time until it was finally their turn.
Tim said the scariest part was being pulled 150 feet up in the air.
I'm not sure if you can blow this up or not, but their faces are priceless in this shot.
They survived!
We celebrated Matthew's birthday. The big 6!
That night Jacob pulled a table down on his face and we got to visit the ER. 7 stitches later and he was as good as new.
We drove out to Tremonton and watched the fireworks from the Zundels' backyard. Holly was so excited about it, she danced the night away. She loves pioneers.
Lindsey got Matthew a snuggy for his birthday. He loves it and wore it home on our 13 hour drive. He's going through a camo stage. Funny for such a self-proclaimed "indoorsy' kid.
The fireworks were a perfect end to a perfect trip.
I left one of my cameras in UT and as soon as I get it, I'll post more pics.

I love those pictures of Holly and Jacob!! They sure did love that dirt.

How are Jacob's stitches doing?

You know? Matthew needs to revaluate his life. He thought he was "indoorsie" but he spent almost his entire vacation outside...and he loved it. I never heard him talk once about his Wii games.

An indoorsie kid wouldn't like to boat as much as he did, or go on the tube.

True. But if you remember, he would wake up at like 6 or 7 and get all his Wii playing in before we would head out for the day. But he's not as indoorsy as he thinks.

So fun to see the personalities of each of the kids. Summer in Utah is great -- especially if wakeboarding's on the list of activities!
