We started off our Staycation with a Utah Utes Football game, of course!
The next day we headed to the lake to get some boating in. The weather just did not cooperate, it was pretty windy. So we just did a boat ride and some swimming. We also had a great rock skipping competition.
Then we went out to eat at a restaurant in a small town near us.
The people that ran the restaurant raise Follow Deer, we took some time to go check them out. It was really neat, they would follow us everywhere. That was really fun for the kids.
On the way home we saw a beautiful sunset along the mountain line.
The next day we jumped in the car and drove back to Fantasy Canyon.
We took our Scrubble Cube along to play (review coming soon).
Here we are at Fantasy Canyon.
We saw the Gilsonite Seam. Which is a mineral only found near us.
We did lots of hiking
The next day we took a drive up Nine Mile Canyon.
We saw many Petroglyphs.
We learned so much about the Freemont Indians that used to travel in.
Someone even told us that this rock was an old Indian home. (It is hollow inside.)
We saw so many amazing Petroglyphs!
Check out this balancing rock!
There were parts of the drive that were so scary that Paul’s brother put on a helmet to ride.
We did some boating.
Emily wrecked on the waterskies.
Paul and I showed some L.O.V.E. while double wakeboarding.
We ended the staycation with a BMX State Championship race for Emily.
She was the only one of my kids that qualified to race in the championship.
She got 3rd!
We are all so proud of her! She raced her little heart out.
We ended the day, and the staycation, by celebrating Emily’s birthday!
Happy Birthday Emily!
We will now resume our
busy normal life.
