I know there are a million pictures. I have been putting off this post for a while because I had so many it was over whelming. So believe it or not, this is just a few. John's mom planned a family reunion with her, her kids and grandkids at a Zion resort so we made a trip out of it. We started off staying at the ranch. We went four wheeling with Rachel and Richards family, ate popsicles, picked melons, went shopping, and had a good visit. Then we headed to Zion's for the weekend. It was SO beautiful and the resort had so many things to do. We had ranger rides, horse back rides, rode the zip line, roasted marshmallows for s'mores, soaked in the hot tub, played at the park and the list goes on. It was such a blast. The cabin was huge and had two rooms full of bunk beds. Alice loved playing and falling a sleep on the top bunk with all her girl cousins. It was so fun eating every meal together and having late night talks. John even squeezed in a trip to the temple with his mom. On Tuesday we went to the washington rec center with the Schaefermeyer family to swim and had a blast! It was so good to see everyone. We had such a fun trip and cant wait till next time! Love you all.

Puyallup fair

So happy to be at the fair

Ella so happy to have her own

Alice and Ronan loving their ice cream

John's last show was the Puyallup fair. It was 17 long days & our little fam ended up going 4 times. Now about every other day Alice will say "I want to go to the fair". She loved the rides. Her favorite was a pink car that followed a track and coming in a close second was the giant slide you ride down on a gunny sack. They have something at this fair I have never had before. It's called an elephants ear. It's a big thin piece of fried dough covered in butter and then sprinkled with Cinnamon and sugar. Yum. Ella loved the animals. Especially the petting zoo. She would get so excited and squeal, but didn't really want to touch any of them. We had a blast! So thanks to Dan and his family and also Bo and Melanie (who cleaned up Alice's puke the first time..I am forever in your debt! And the second time we came out after the fair to a dead battery. Luckily John was not pitching and came to our rescue.) For hauling me and the kiddo's! Good times.
