We had a fantastic time in Vernal. I hadn't been home in over 6 years and I was so anxious and excited to go home. Everything has changed so much! Thank you mom and dad for letting us crash at your house! We had such a great time and the kids loved every second of it!
Here is our trip in a nut shell.
Pretty clouds outside the plane window.
My Mom, Me, and My grandpa "Papa".

The kids enjoyed picking yummy vegetables in grandma's garden! It was so plentiful with corn, squash, zucchini, tomatoes, and much more!
Mom and me, in the kitchen where we spent lots of time! ;)

Lily was an all-star! She did great!
My honey smacked that ball into the neighbors yard! ;)
Ethan was a pro!
I love Ashton's face in this picture! I guess I hit the ball pretty far!
Bath time in Grandma's jet tub! The kids had a blast! They made a huge mess of bubbles everywhere, but it was fun for them!

I have such great memories here! I'm so glad I could take my kids here with my mom for a picnic. We had so much fun!

What me and Erin do best..... Laugh. Every time we're together we laugh until our guts hurt! We have done that since we were little girls! It was so fun to get together with her and her family and it was so awesome spending time with her again!
Trying to be normal!
Darren and Steely always goof off too!
Erin and her family!
Riding the Harley! Grandpa took everyone who wanted to go, on a motorcycle ride! It was so fun! Here is Ethan with Grandpa.
This is how I feel after my ride!

Ashton and Lily didn't dare go for an actual ride, but they did get on so I could take a picture!
Happy 9th Birthday Ethan! Ethan turned 9 while in Utah. Grandpa and Grandma took us all out to dinner, and then we came back for presents and cake!
Cool school shirts from Grandma!
Make a wish!
Waterslide! The kids kept seeing the big yellow waterslide as we would drive by it, so I promised them we'd go. Well, the day we went it was FREEZING!! But they still had fun!
Daddy and Jacob coming down the slide!
Dinner at the Winn's! Another family I'm very close to are the Winns. They lived across the street from me my entire life growing up. I played with Ann and Cameron at a very young age. I love them so much! They have been so great to our family. They invited us over for dinner. It was so fun to see them again!
Terry at the grill cooking yummy chicken and pork chops!
All the kids jumping on the tramp. My boys mixed with Ann's boys equalled 4 very energetic boys! ;)
Me and Ann! I love that girl!
Terry and Kathy! Such great people!
Saying goodbye! Thank you again for a great night!
