Benson's visit


My Brother Craig and his family came to visit the last week of August.  Keely and Kennedy were sooo excited to play with Ally.  They were sad she didn't get to come to Lake Powell.  I didn't take many pictures unfortunately,  But we got to go to the pool and the beach two times with them.

Last of Disney

 Tea cups. Always a favorite
 Watching the parade.  Kennedy wanted to follow the princess so bad.
 One last ride on Thunder Mountain.  Keely is so much fun on all the "Big" rides
 We got to go one hour early before the park opened to check out the new Car's Land.  It is awesome.


 Tower of Terror!  Keely and Me are in the bottom left
 She loved talking to Minnie!

Our passes expired on August 24th, and most of the summer was blocked out, So we had four days to make the most of it! It was hot! But fun! Lots of great memories.  We already miss it.

We got to go to the Circus again this year.  We got a great deal from a lady in the ward who has box seats at the Honda Center.  The circus theme this year was Dragons!  ( p.s. I think we are good on going to the circus for at least a couple of years)

 I swore the cat trainer was gonna get attacked.  Those were some angry kitties!

 The Elephants were the girls favorite again.  Keely really wants to ride on one.
The motorcycle guys were probably Kevin's favorite.  It was crazy how many men on bikes could ride in that globe.

St. George, Utah

We made plans to meet up with Kevin's family in St. George, Ut.  It worked out perfect that we were able to meet up right after our lake powell trip. So we drove from Page AZ to St. George. UT for a couple of days. My Mother-in-law Sandy found a great rental house that had an awesome park down the street.  This park had everything!  Splash Pads, Tennis, Volleyball, and tons of play equipment.  I wish there was a park like this where we live.

Oh yeah!  We took Summer home with us for a week and a half :)
My Sister in law Julie suggested this really fun pool to take the kids to in Washington.  It had 3 different size slides, baby, medium and BIG, a lazy river, splash pads, whirlpools and even baby swings in the pool. It was indoor with great big garage door like openings so it was nice to not have to worry about sun screen. It was really cool.

Kevin, Uncle Nate and Grandpa took the kids to a red rock park while Grandma, Julie, Emily, Summer and me went shopping at the outlets.  The girls kept asking where the park was :)  Kevin had to tell them it was a different kind of park.

Even though it takes my girls a little bit of time to get over their shyness they sure do love seeing their Utah Cousins.

On July 24th we went back to Washington to see the fireworks.  Quite the experience.  We set up on the grass and the sprinklers came on!!  Twice!!  We managed not to get too wet but other people got soaked.  Poor Adam was playing on the playground and split his chin :(  After a long wait in the ER I think he ended up getting six stitches ;(  But on a side note,  the fireworks were really good!  Kennedy thought they were way too loud so I had to cover her ears the entire time.  I didn't take any pictures that night.  oops.
