Vacation Overload

Darth Maul - Eli got his face painted at a fundraiser. 

Josh chose to be a Green Ninaj

Noelle didn't want her face painted, but she did get a balloon flower. 

Playing with some of her birthday presents. 

A LONG Drive, thank heavens we can stop to play at Rest Stops.

Jet is happy to be out of his seat!

 Our first stop in Utah was to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

We stayed with my brother Benjamin and his family. It was great to have a big place to play and boy cousins for my boys to play with.

Noelle loved all the attention she got. 

Palmer Cousins - 2 were missing from South Carolina, and 2 were watching from heaven. 

We had to go see the Payson Temple. It is getting close!

When we got out of the car to walk and see the Temple Noelle asked us if she was now old enough to get married. She was upset when we told her that no, she was not old enough yet.

We had a lot of fun at the Museum of Natural Curiosity at Thanksgiving Point.

Eli is hanging like a sloth. 

Noelle did a great job climbing all over the place. 

Josh is not afraid to stick his hand into dark holes. 


GOING Fishing!

We had to keep Noelle's fish because it would not go back in the water. She was fine holding and touching it until she saw that it had dirt on it. She did not want to hold a dirty fish.


Cousins getting ready for a tug-of-war

Dunking in FREEZING water. 


El Flamo lights the fire with magic. 

Benjamin and Melinda held Jet for us, which made it easy to take lots of pictures and videos. 

The Swammie Brothers!

What's in the Box?

Dirty, dirty, dirty.
