Our big trip this summer was to Utah. Zach, with his friend Jude, participated in his first soccer camp away from home at BYU so we thought we should tag along, in case something should come up. Plus we have so many friends and family in Utah that we decided it would be fun to visit them all.
My birthday fell at the beginning of our trip and our best friends from dental school, the Broadbents, had us over for dinner and cake. It's always fun to see them and spend time with them. We just wish that we didn't live so far away from each other.
We also got to visit with Great Grandpa Van and see Grandma, Grandpa, and Ashlee and Paul and their kids. We spent the day together at Cowabunga Bay Water Park. The kids had an absolute blast! I was really impressed with how brave Ryan was. There was not a slide he did not go down.
We stayed with Jeff and Britt but failed to get a picture with them. After Zach's camp was over me, Preston and Zach headed down to San Diego to attend the Surf Cup. Justin stayed in Utah for a couple more days with Ryan and Kate. Justin has been reading a lot of books about Prophets past and wanted to go visit the SLC cemetary. He took the kids with them and then went to Temple Sqaure. Ryan has a new obsession with all things Temple, especially Moroni!
