Cute little swimmy girls
They LOVED the motor boat!
We got them swimming barbies for being such good travelers
Oh for this to be the view from my dinner table always...
My favorite dessert of all time:

Never make them... you'll crave them.

Lagoon- Part Two

Aren't they too young to be driving!?!?
Bubble gum ice cream!
Carousel with Grandma
Bumper cars!!!

Best Tilt A Whirl Ride. Ever.
Brook & Grandpa on the Ferris Wheel
Poor Ellie's smashed face! She was such a trooper!
By far the favorite ride- the girls rode it about 12 times (8 consecutively)!!
A shout out to Uncle Sam!! 
Thanks Grandpa & Grandma! We had so much fun!!!
The Drive Home :)

Lagoon- Part One

Sunday afternoon we parted ways with the Smith cousins and headed to Ogden. We had an AMAZING (as always) BBQ at Larry and Kris' house with the Anderson's. 

Great food, great company. 

The girls had a blast playing tag and hide and seek with Grandpa, Grandma, and Aunt Emma. Then we hit the hay to rest up for Lagoon!!!

Monday was Dad and Mom's 30th anniversary!! They celebrated by taking me and the girls and Emma to Lagoon. Saints. That's all I have to say. Anyways it was awesome!! I'll let the pictures explain.
I found this to be a VERY appropriate ride for the girls...

Poor Ellie got confused at the restroom and ran outside and smashed her little nose & forehead and got really bad skinned knees- she was so brave though!!
