We love library story time! Today they got little "dragon" (aka alligator) finger puppets. And there was a RS meeting last night about taking better pictures. Is this better? How's my story telling with a picture? They told us about the app snapseed that is a fun photo editing app. I tried it out on this picture. What do you think?

Another fun thing about having the school in our back yard... Spying on Aspen while she runs the mile in PE!

Is there anything cuter than sleeping babies?

The real reason for our trip was to celebrate Gpa Loveridge's 90th birthday. He had all 4 of his children, 13 of his 16 grandchildren and 29 of his 38 great grandchildren there! (I think that math is correct.) Grandpa has accomplished many many things in his 90 years. I think though if you asked him he is most proud of the legacy that he has in his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and in securing the love of his life over 60 years ago.

Our super quick trip to SLC this weekend brought us through one of the worst rain storms I've ever driven through. I don't know what it's called, but the canyon north of Price on US 6 was wet! As in watch out for the ark wet! We slowly made it up and when we got into the valley near Provo we were rewarded with a beautiful rainbow! It started off as a faint double but as we drove the top one faded and the bottom one brightened. It was beautiful!

After we broke camp we headed to monument valley. It really is an amazing place to see!

Saturday was Cedars first game with the Moab travel team. He played 2 games in Ridgeway Colorado. He played well and had a blast with his new friends.

Gooseneck state park turned out to be a nice place to camp. The stars were amazing! We took the rain tarp off the big tent and it was just like sleeping in a planetarium.

Sunday afternoon we headed out to camp at Goodnecks state park. It's really just a big overlook if the San Juan river, but with a bathroom and it was ok to camp. (No actual developed camp sites, but plenty if flat spots to put up a tent it two. (We now need 2 tents to fit our family!) we drove there via the Moki dugway. Have you heard of it? It's 3 miles of UNPAVED gravel switch backs carved into the side of a cliff. There is a 10% grade and 15 MPH with 5 MPH on the curves. I made Jonathon drive. I wasn't even sure if it was wise to go down it in the van. We made it though the first view off the cliff gave us all vertigo.

After getting some work done around the house we headed to Cortez to visit their rec center then pick up Aspens new bike. The rec center was REALLY nice. It was small but every inch is packed with all the things a good center should. They had great family bathrooms. (4 of them!) the pool was fun. It has a 0 entry play area, water fountains, a little duck slide that Linden loved! A lazy river, a big slide, and a separate lap pool with a diving board. After we swam and got ready we went and climbed the climbing wall. The kids can scramble right up. Jonathon and Cedar made it to the top of the hard side, Aspen was working on climbing under a ledge, Olive loved climbing up then jumping off, linden geared up and we hooked him to a rope but he had no clue what to do. It didn't help that the carabiner was in his face. I even tried. Aspen took a very UNflattering video, so I do have proof.
You'll just have to believe me though, I'm NOT showing it to anyone! We had a great time!
