Fun-filled weekend!

Step Out Walk for Diabetes

So we made a quick trip to Northern Utah this weekend to participate in the Step Out walk with Staci. The walk started at This is the Place Heritage Park and ended at Hogle Zoo. It was only 2.5 miles and we walked it pretty slowly so it was pretty easy. It was all the waiting around that wasn't as much fun! Waiting to breakfast...cross the lunch!!! The lines were ridiculous, but all-in-all it was a fun time. Just wish we could have seen Staci for a little bit longer!!! We ended at the zoo and were able to stick around for a little while to see a few animals. So here are some walking and zoo pictures.
All the kids wanted to walk with Staci...they were fighting over who got to walk next to her! She ended up finishing before us with Caleb and Eli...we got stuck in the huge line to cross the road!:)
Here's most of the gang truckin' down the road!
Rhett enjoyed the ride!
Here's Makenna, Caleb, & Makyla with the BEE. He kept riding up and down the street in a van while we were walking...too lazy to walk himself I guess!:)
Picture with the Gorilla.
Rhett was so excited about the Giraffe's! He ran up to a complete stranger and with his hands outstretched looking at him he yelled "GIRAFFE'S!" and then moved on! It was pretty cute!
This is the cute little baby elephant. It was quite the attraction!

BYU Game

After the zoo we headed to Provo to watch the BYU/Colorado State game! I think we were mistaken for CSU fans since we were traveling in a vehicle with a Colorado license plate, so we rectified that by stopping at Walmart and buying everyone BYU hats...well, everyone but Tony! It was a lot of fun and I think Caleb had the best time! I think we need to make this a yearly tradition! Although, we might have to switch venues every other year. Don't think Tony would continue going to the BYU games every year. We might need to hit a Utah game every once in a while!:)

Tony doesn't know I took this picture!! It would be gone and erased if he did! It was SOOOOO hot and the sun was right in our eyes and Tony forgot his hat and his sunglasses. I told him he could borrow Eli's hat becuase Eli wasn't really wearing it but he just looked at me like I was crazy and said NO WAY, but I think it was in the 3rd quarter and he just couldn't take the heat and sun in his eyes anymore and he finally took Eli's hat! Of course I had to take a picture to capture the moment!:)
Through at least the 1st quarter Rhett kept yelling "GO UTES" and I'd try to correct him and tell him it was the cougars and by the 2nd quarter he looked at me and said "no utes?" And by the end of the game he was standing up and doing the BYU song and yelling "GO COUGARS"! Brought tears to my eyes!:)

And then after the game we got to end the day with some dinner from Cafe Rio!! Boy did that hit the spot. I think I'm going to petition that they bring one to Delta...or at least Grand Junction!:) The kids had fun playing with their cousins and didn't want to leave. Makyla actually hid under Makenna's bed and then when we finally got her in the van and took off she had tears in her eyes! And Caleb misses Landen...they sure liked playing together! So here's to a fun and excited and exhausting weekend!!

I'll count this as a Mission Blessing since it gives me warm fuzzies just thinking about the support for Staci and the family togetherness. Thanks for enjoying each other and helping to make FAMILIES FOREVER.
