Isn't this so darn much fun?

 We went to St. George and then later on to Provo to spend time with our family for 4th of July.  Cory and I sat down at the beginning of the week and decided what we would  do each day.  We came up with a great fun list and here's what we did.  We spent time with Wendy (Cory's Aunt) at her pool. 
Another family tradition is to take a pizza to the Church across the street from the St. George Temple, lay out a blanket and have a picnic.  After dinner we walk around the Temple and talk.
 Of course Sara's old "Jefferey" bear had to come along
 Here's Caleb and Cory walking together
 Another day was spent at the REC center in St. George.  Ummm... it was deliciously fun
 Even Afton thought so,
 Until she fell asleep.
 Another day we went to Zion National Park.  We left St. George early to beat the heat and the crowd.  We hiked the Emerald Pool trail. 

 During the wet season, this ledge is pouring over with water, but during July it was just a trickle.
 We saw some tadpoles ...
 Afton put her feet in the cool water.
 We found the Emerald pools!
 Provo 4th of July Parade!
 All the young cousins taking a short break from playing and laughing and hugging (well except for Hannah and Henry) for a picture.
 Just before the fireworks began at Doug and Helen's house.. HI HEATHER!
 We went out to dinner, Afton surprised the lady behind her by selecting her own meal.
 Home Again, Home again. 
It was a quiet ride.
We had a fabulous time. Thank you Gene Orton's!
