Fun times in Utah!

For our vacation this summer, we went to Utah to visit with family. First, we went to Salt Lake and stayed with my nephew, Alma, his wife, Matti, and their 2 children, Bella and Oliver. We had a great time visiting with them.

Matti, Bella, Sam, Oliver and Amanda at the Gateway Mall. They had a good time playing in the water at the splash park.

Next we went to Cedar City, Utah and stayed with my niece, Marie, her husband, Joe, and their 5 children, Veronica, Tyler, Samantha, Brenna and Braelynn.
We love going to the Shakespearean Festival at the college. Every night they have a "Green Show", where they put on a 45 minute skit/play/musical, program. Everyone either brings a chair or a blanket to sit on in the grass.

My nephew, Loren, works at the Boy Scout camp there, so we stayed with him, his wife, Carolyn and their 4 children, Bradley, Jocelyn, Caleb and Seth. My sister, Karen, my Dad, my neice, Joanna, her husband, Shayler and my nephew, Jimmy, met up with us at Bear Lake, too.
The girls had a ton of fun playing with all the water toys. Carolyns brother had a jet ski there, so everyone had fun riding on it. Loren gave everyone lessons before "setting them loose" on the lake.

Above: Sam and Hannah "trying" to stand up on the body board. I had to take the picture quick, before they fell off again!

After we left Bear Lake to head home, I had to stop and take pictures as we were going through Logan Canyon. It is so beautiful!

I SO wish I could have been there! I like seeing the pictures though, even if I couldn't be there having fun with everyone.
