The next morning we all headed down to our spot for the Fiesta Days parade and then after had a picnic at the pavillion and canoe rides for the kids.
Wade was the guide . Look at that strength!!!
The canoe was really fun for the kids to ride in at the reservoir.
Friday evening we went to the Fiesta Days Rodeo with the whole family. It was so funny to see how the kids reacted to the excitement especially Kaden, Aaron and Boston. Boston is so animated it still makes me laugh to think of it and when they are together it is so funny. They all love animals and it was hilarious to see their reactions as the events took place. After the rodeo we went home to watch the fireworks and light up our sparklers. It was a full day.
Boston kept Aaron totally occupied
There were a few scary moments.
They animated every move the animals made.
It was a little chilly for the girls. Cute still.
Beginning to clean up Grandpa's yard
The kids did a great job of pulling all of the weeds in Grandma and Grandpa's flowerbed.
This is the after picture, but it just doesn't do it justice. However, you can tell how much walking and carrying we did as you look how smooshed down the grass is.
Annette brough all of the equipment for making bracelets and necklaces. Creativity!!!
Brynn, Delaney, McKenzie, Jenn (our creator) and Arden making placemats.
Chad and Billy giving Sunday lesson to the adults
Riding the gondola, over and over again!
FUN taking in the beauties of the outdoors!
Searching for our prophets!
After leaving Park City we traveled to SLC for some lunch and to have a fun little
We had a map of the cemetary that included the addresses for all of the prophets including Gordon B. Hinckley, David O. McKay, Spencer W. Kimball and many more. It also included many of the apostles who have served in the church. It was so fun when we would say '"Okay, over on that block in the left corner look for the name "Lee"' (Harold B.)
The kids would run as fast as they could and the first one to find the marker would be the winner. Then the adults would share stories they remembered about their personal lives to bring them back to life for the kids. It was really interesting even for the adults. When Wade went back to work in St. George he was telling his boss what we did and his boss replied "You did what? Most grandparents take their grandchildren to Lagoon or Disneyland and you went to the Salt Lake Cemetary?" Believe it or not it was a highlight of our trip.
The grandkids at Howard W. Hunters grave. Annette told us a great personal story about how President Hunter took care of his ailing wife and when she passed away he remarried "Inez" and she took care of him until he passed away. She was known to be a cute little lade that wore cute little hats to match her clothing. One was buried on one side and one on the other.
