The Acquarium was cool, but way over priced in my opinion. My kids enjoyed seeing all the sea creatures, but we were through in a little over an hour. We weren't ready to call our wacky Wednesday over so we went to the new splash pad in Highland and played in the water and had Little Caesar's 5 buck pizzas. So we ended up having a great Wednesday! Thanks to all the friends who joined us, you make the Wednesday activities so much more fun!

We keep saying what wonderful neighbors we have! A few families in the neighborhood came with us to Palisade Campground near Manti over the 11th of July. I loved loved loved this campground. Can I say loved one more time, cause I loved it! Here are some of the highlights.
Friday: Drove to camp and set up, then went to the Manti house with the Burninghams for dinner. Stayed up late visiting with our fun friends, the Dowdles, Coles, Gibsons, and Burninghams
Saturday: Guys went golfing (yes, I said golfing! There is a golf course at this State park). The gals and kids went and set up our area at the beach. There is a playground for kids, paddleboats to rent, and a dock to swim out to. We could have spent a week just hanging out at the lake. That afternoon, Casey was challenged to a race, nobody thought that he could beat the "so totally in shape and looking awesome" Josh. So we laughed hard as the races began, and lo and behold, that Casey has some serious speed! Good times! That night we made a
dinner with 40 mile stew prepared Casey style. SO DELICIOUS! And Darci made us some delicious peach and raspberry cobbler. We always eat so well when we camp. After dinner, 3 of the families headed home, but the Burninghams (Josh and Susie, we call them our die hard friends) stayed one more night with us. We can always count on them to be up for anything. We always have fun with them, and they are always willing to do whatever, whenever. We decided to go to the drive-in movie theatre in Mt. Pleasant. It is totally old school and we love it!

After the parade, we went home and had kids take naps while we got the house clean and food prepared for a BBQ with the Smughes! This BBQ was so much fun that I think we ought to make it tradition!
Here are some of the highlights of the night...
Probably forgot a few activities, but you get the point. Thanks to my awesome family for such a fun night!
The Whitakers and Crysta's kids were also at the parade, so that made for a great time for the kids.
