Utah Trip!

Friday July 10th we headed up to Riverton Utah where my family lives. Scotlyn was great the car ride up.

When we got there Scotlyn showed off her dancing moves. It was just as funny watching everyone else dancing. Crista got a great video of Scotlyn dancing. I will have to post it later.
Saturday morning we got up and headed to Marks Family in Holladay. We ate at a yummy neighborhood breakfast. Sara took Scotlyn out back to the play set, Scotlyn loved the slide. Of course we had to have a Mario cart tournament, a Bradley family Tradition. That evening we had a Neighborhood BBQ. It was so good to visit with the Bradleys.

Sunday was a busy day. We headed down to Orem for Mark's Aunt Tammy and uncle Matt's Homecoming at 9:00. Matt was missionary President in Paraguay. Afterwards we went to Matt and Katies, it was good to visit with all the cousins. Meanwhile my Parents went to my brother Lance's Mission Presidents homeecoming at 11:00 in Pleasant Grove. After that they got us and we headed to Wyoming for my cousin Chad's Homecoming. Luckily they do Sacrament last so we were able to barely make it. Sunday was long , but good.
Monday we went to a Lake in Daybreak where my grandparents live and went Kayaking. Lots of fun. Scotlyn loved playing in the sand. Afterwards we went to Grandpa and Grandma's house for a BBQ and homemade icecream, mmmm. And of course games, we played mexican train.

Tuesday we went to the open house for the Oquirrh Temple. It was very beautiful. I loved all the paintings. It was such a great experience. I love Temples!
Wednesday we ran errands. We went to Young living for some good oils. After Young Living we went shopping for Lance, he was overdue for a package. It is amazing what you can shove into those envelopes. We are so proud of Lance. He is such a great Missionary. He is serving in the Mexico City Mission and has had all native companions.
Thursday we went to IKEA. I love that store. Then we were on a mission to find Lynzie a tennis racket. We looked at DI and a pawn shop. We were successful! We found a nice one at the pawn shop for 15 bucks and we found a really old wooden one at DI for 3 bucks. After our mission was completed we headed to my grandparents for a grueling game of Dominoes. Grandpa bought a 15 dot game. It was a 5 1/2 hour game. We didn't finish till 1: 30 in the morning.
Friday my dad put a swing up he got at DI in the front room. Scotlyn loved it she got mad when you tried to take her out. I didn't get a very good picture. She looks scared!

Friday we headed to Santaquin where Mark's sister and mom live. We had another BBQ and played canasta.

We got home Saturday night. It was a great trip! It is great to be home!
I can't forget about Baby Coopers Baby Blessing in Cedar on Sunday. It was great to go up with my brother and seee cousins we haven't seen in a while. Sorry for the long post.
