We went to Utah last week. We spent the first few days with my sisters and their families. No Internet, no stores, no driving, no distractions. The kids played outside with their cousins. They had a blast! No whining, no asking for toys, no boredom. Just pure, simple fun.
In my opinion, it was way better than Disneyland. Disneyland costs a lot of money and scares the crap out of our kids. Our kids = Sam and Elise. The other cousins LOVE Disneyland. Our kids, not so much. Everything scares them there. I am still getting over it. But I am totally off point here - why I am bashing Disneyland? The point of this post is to share some of the pictures from the trip to Utah. The point is my dad got married this past week to Rachelle. Rachelle and my dad have been dating for several years now. They got married in Zion National Park last Tuesday.
A small group of family and friends stayed at a couple of vacation homes just outside the park.
This is Rachelle's daughter (Chenelle) and son (Jordan) on the right, along with his girlfriend Erica. Jordan and Erica are smarty pants graduate students. He studies physics and she studies geo-physics (earthquakes!). Chenelle is a smarty pants too. She is studying to be an Actuary. I didn't even know what that was. It involves building mathematical models and statistics and smart stuff like that...in case you were wondering...
