SUMMER: 4 mini vacations in 3 weeks!

Once again, Daron planned a fabulous family trip! 3 fun-filled weeks of driving in the car together... we finished a 5-novel "The Children of the Promise" books on tape set. A yummy meal at the Big Texan in Amarillo kicked off our adventure!

Part 1: Colorado

Part 2: Las Vegas!

Rode the monorail/roller coaster, walked thru fancy shops and saw 3 awesome shows: pet comedy, variety, and cirque! Once in a lifetime (because that's all anyone needs to do) 24hr buffets & fancy hotels.

Part 3: Yellowstone & Hairs join us at Uncle Henrik's Cabin!

Saw Steve & Marla, Elder Sterling Boyd, Aunt Margaret & Bob, Temple square, kids had an awesome week at EFY, backstage Studio C tour, then home thru Arches National Pk in Moab. So sad to leave the beautiful mountains and crisp fresh air behind!
