It was great to be able to go to Salt Lake City for the week. We were able to catch up with friends and family. On Monday night, we went with my sister Catye and her husband Mike, Jamie and Leah, and Melanie, Halle, and Caleb to Seven Peaks water park for a fun night of swimming and sliding.
We got a sweet deal. It was free! Catye is working there right now. It was a lot of fun to go with kids and a lot of adults. There were plenty of grown-ups to help with all the little ones. Melanie, Jamie, and Zach made a good trio because they are all very daring. Me...not so much, thank you. After the water park, I went with my family to The Pie for some delicious pizza.
Tuesday night was a blast as well. We headed to American Fork to catch up with Lindsay, Justin, and their crew. They just moved into a complex where there is a community pool. The kids were in heaven, catching up on old times, and swimming like crazy. I love all of these kids so much.
Melanie put Taryn in the pool with a regular diaper. Then the poor girl walked around, looking like she was going to give birth to an exceptionally large soggy-bottom nappy. It was quite funny.

|Jump in kids! Weeeeeeee!|
|These two are buddies. They have always been the best of friends. We miss them so much.|
I was also able to babysit for Melanie so that she could go to the temple. It was a nice morning. We took a walk to the playground and the whole time we were walking, Caleb read to me from his Time Warp Trio book. So stinkin' cute.
By the end of the week, Caleb told me that Zach and him used to be worst enemies, but now they are best friends. Aaah. Zach also seemed to make amends with Breken and they are now on better terms. They are no longer worst enemies as well. Zach can now officially mark two more names off of his Worst-Enemy List. Whew. Thank goodness.

Friday night was great also because we were able to see Catye, Mike, Jamie and Leah one more time. We did dinner at Cafe Rio and then went back to Jamie's apartment for some Wii action and football pointers.
Catye and Mike stayed over so that they could catch the Saturday finale concert at the school. It was a fun week and I am glad I was able to do it.
