AMF Bowling

When I was checking online for fun cheap things to do this summer with the kiddos I found AMF.

Kids bowl free all summer (excluding shoe rental). They can play 2 games every single day. A summer pass for up to 4 adults (excluding shoe rental) is only $30. Woo hoo!

We went this last Saturday and kidnapped Isaac too!

We all had fun!

This was Eva's very 1st time bowling and she kept getting her groove on.

Eva even beat her brothers!! Woo hoo girlie!

Grandma's (Chapman) House

When we were last at grandma's Eva decided enough was enough and that it was high time that the Sesame Street toy was no longer possessed.  Unfortunately, toy tools are not as effective as real ones!

Ethan was very proud of his work here with these blocks.  I must say that he did a cool job with it!

Welcome to Booger King!

James decided that it was high time to teach his boys about Booger King.  Ethan got the giggles and kept saying, "Welcome to Booger King come on in!".

Snow Canyon State Park

This park is so beautiful!

We went hiking and a few of the brave ones did a bit of free hand climbing.

Here are Bob and Jeff.

Jake made it about 4 feet barefoot. Go Jake!!

We had a lot of fun.

The soil was a bright orange soft silt.

This hike was easy since we had the kiddos with us.

Bob scaled part of the mountain that had this angled part. The mountain is straight up and someone had left a rope from climbing. He went to investigate.

It is a sheer drop. Very pretty but intimidating from my point of view.

Ethan resting in the shade.

Up where it is shady some pioneers wrote their names/dates with axle grease. It was pretty cool to see that.

James and Bob went for a closer look. It was pretty amazing. The guys decided to go on a more complicated hike so the kids and I headed back. We all had a great time.

Plus, and more importantly, we got to have a wonderful time visiting Bob, Amanda, and cutie pie baby Daniel. He is so adorable!! Thank you so much for letting us come visit you. We miss you already!

St George Temple

We stopped by the St George temple on Saturday. It is soooo beautiful! There is a rose garden that is wrapped around the entire temple grounds.

It was my first time here and I have to say that I was captivated by it's beauty.

Of course we took some family pic.s along the way.

The kids each had their chance to take a picture. This was Ethan's.

Jakes (Eva was obviously excited about it).

And Eva's.

We had to do some silly ones too!

Breakfast at the Golden Corral

We needed a big hearty breakfast this morning.

So, the kids (James included) had chocolate covered marshmallows from the fondue fountain.

James had a Sunday and gummy bears.

They had to have them some cotton candy too.
