Summer Time!

This summer has been so busy I can't believe that school will be starting in just a few weeks. We had a really great family reunion with Darins Family in Heber at the Homestead. Everything was perfect the company the boating and the food was devine. Last week we enjoyed a 6 day "Staycation" We started out at Thanksgiving Point with our good friends the Rothwells, we did everything from the dinosaur museum to the Petting Farm, we then stayed the evening at the cabin in American Fork and roasted smores. We then ventured over to Salt Lake we went to the Zoo and swam at the hotel, relaxed on Temple Square and highly recomend the Joseph Smith movie at the Joseph Smith Memorial. It was very well done and really impressed us with the spirit and strength of the pioneers and particularly Joseph Smith. After 2 days of excitement in Salt Lake we traveled on to Farmington where we met up with the Pauni's and had a really great time at the Lagoon. And finally we ended the fabulous staycation in Ogden, with Darins sister Danette and her fun, cute family.
Grandma and Grandpa Bacciocco came with us as well to the Dinosaur Park and the original Farrs ice cream parlor there in the fine city of Ogden. We slept up at Wolfcreek that night so we could do some more swimming and enjoyed being in such a beautiful canyon. It was an ideal vacation for our kids they enjoyed being with family and friends and the fact we didn't have to drive to far to have this much fun was perfect.
