We decided to take the kids on a family vacation this year. We had a family counsel in March on what we should do for it. Everyone agreed that we would go to Salt Lake City and stay in a hotel. We planned it for June 15-18. We had to wait for Ian to make it home from Scout Camp on the 15th, then we all piled in the car and headed North.
Our train conductor had to stop the train at one point and get feisty with a movie crew that was there filming. They had their vehicles parked in the way. It was kind of funny, actually. After he got off the train and yelled at them, they moved their cars/vans and then he got back on the train and kept on with the tour as if nothing had happened. It made us laugh.
Ian and I took a crazy selfie. :) It makes me smile. We were just having fun!
Eli even was able to make a movie after watching the other kids do it. He didn't need (or want) any help.
I also rode the musical dragon ride. (I don't remember what it is called.) I didn't want to go on it--it makes me sick and wishing it would just end (and then it goes the other direction!), but they boys talked me into it. Look how excited they were--how could I resist?
The boys were in love with the bumper cars. Zander took Lindey for a ride. She wasn't too thrilled to go with him, but warmed up to it after a minute. Eli was excited he got to drive his own car. He was having a blast!
