Weekend fun

This weekend we were able to meet up with family in Salt Lake City and Park City.
Saturday was my nephew John's baptism on the Smyth side. We got to spend a short time with my parents and some of my siblings.

After the baptism we drove to Park City to spend some time with Jeremy's parents.

It was such beautiful weather and it is a beautiful time of year in the mountains with the leaves changing colors.

We went to the Olympic museum and also watched some skiers using the summer jumps that end in a pool of water.

It was a quick weekend trip, but it was a great time.

Swimming at the Lake

We live ten minute from Dierkes Lake where the kids can go swimming. It is such a pretty setting with a large park area that has large trees and lots of grass. The opposite side of the lake has sage brush and rocks which makes the trees and grass all the more appreciated and welcoming.

There is a diving board that the boys had a good time jumping from. Lydia and Becca played at the shallow part, mostly digging in the sand and building in the sand.

Towards the end of our time there the boys thought it was fun to get out of the water, roll in the sand, lay all crusted on the bank and then jump in the water to wash off only to do it all again.
