This summer we took a vacation down to Utah to visit our friends and family and have as much fun as possible. We drove 12 hours straight to catch Ben's brother Adam and his family before they left to go back to California.
We went with Ben's family to a 4th of July street fair, and this is the first thing we saw.
A giant turtle!
Sticking with the giant theme we ate giant turkey legs.
That night we went to dinner with more Sorensen's

It was Zoe's birthday so of course we had to sing and eat cake.
Day 5 we hiked the Y
Greysen was my hiking buddy. He was awesome. He just kept going even when he was certain we were never going to get there. He was so excited when we finally arrived.

Later we went to campus and Bekett pushed Tate around the BYU art museum
Day 6 we went to the splash park
I caught Zoe off guard.
Day 7 we met the Dame's for lunch. They moved to Utah. They joked that they expect us to move within 6 months since we seem to follow them wherever they go.
We met up with Melanie Helm at temple square and then made the long drive to Idaho to have dinner with Barbara, Roberta and Paul.
Then we went to DJ's house to play with goats and ride horses.
Day 8 we made our way to Amy's house to play with the cousins and try out the new boat.
Bekett drove the boat.
Amy and Brent have this duck that likes to chase and bite. We caught him on video going after Zoe.
They were having a dance festival in Rexburg so we got to go out and enjoy some music.
