More Fun In Utah

Our plan was to go to the water park but the weather did not couperate so we headed to an indoor play place.  We rode go carts, played lazer tag, mini bowled, and mini golf.  Everyone had fun!

Go Carts!

Mini Golf

While we were in Utah my mom turned 60.  So we had a little surprise party.  All of the kids lined up with flowers in the hall and gave them to her on her way to the party.  It was pretty cute.  She go a temple canvas of the Chicago Temple (where they were sealed), cute framed pics of the kids, and homemade cards from the grand kids.

Makenna's 1st Birthday Party

Makenna's Birthday was on Orin's wedding day so we had her party a few days latter.  Dustin's parents have a pool in their community we had it there and rented the party room.  It was great!  The kids swam we had a yummy lunch and Makenna got to have her cake.

Me and the Birthday girl!

I forgot a lighter so we pretended to blow out the candle:)

It took her a little while but she eventually got some fist fulls of cake.

She got messy!

Having fun in the pool.

Makenna opened up presents back at Grandma Conks house.  She took a short nap so she was in a better mood.

Grandma and Grandpa Ryan got her this little scooter that she just loves.

Park Fun

Dustin's parents have a cool park near their house that has this crazy climbing pyramid that is 30 feet tall.  My boys love it!  It makes me a little nervous but it does have two places to catch the kids if they fall.

Climbing rocks.

The big kids got in on the fun too.

Getting dizzy!

Watermelon Yum!

Orin's Wedding Day

The happy couple!
My little brother is married.  It was a beautiful day in the beautiful Salt Lake City Temple.  It was amazing experience to have my whole family together in the temple.  My Uncle two Aunts and a cousin were left in charge of all ten kids and apparently everything went smoothly (thanks to electronics).  We are so happy for Orin and Becca, they make a cute couple!  Good Luck on your next adventure.

My beautiful family

I love this picture!  I have cute kids:)

Temple grounds was a beautiful place to take pictures.

It was a great day and all of the kids did amazing!

After we checked into the hotel the Dads went golfing so the moms took the kids swimming.  Luckily we had Uncle Mike around to help with the kids in the pool.  They all had fun getting rides from Uncle Mike and squirting each other with squirt guns.

Thanks Uncle Mike for the help the kids had a blast!

We flew to Utah for my brother Orin's wedding.  While we were there we were able to stay and play with Dustin's family for a few days.  We stopped and played at Trafalga for an afternoon.  We all had fun ridding rides, playing laser tag, racing go carts, and playing mini golf.  It was a great afternoon!

Camdin climbed all the way to the top of the wall twice.

Colton loved climbing the wall and made it to the top on his second attempt.

Mini Golf fun

Everyone had fun playing with Grandma and Paka.

We stopped by and saw Granddad Jensen.  He just turned 97 and switched to a better health care facility.
