One Last Summer Vaca

We hit the road for one last big vacation before the kids have to go back to school! We took over my sister's house for almost a week while they were in Idaho, my kids were in heaven in the cooler weather and spent a lot of time outside playing! they also loved tormenting Tristan & Tristan's hamsters and Austin's dog Teeko! Dustin liked the doggy door and refused to use the real door!
The main reason for our road trip was to take Papa Jones up for his surgery on the 8th. The surgery went well and he was always up beat and happy when we stopped by to see him! but when it was time to head for home the Dr. decide he wanted him to stay close by for another week so we had to leave them behind in the comforts of a hotel room and the Andrew's brought them their car the next day cause you know Granny can't go a whole week without a trip to Wal-Mart!!
Of course if we're making a trip to Utah we HAVE to go to the boy's favorite place......The Nickle Arcades! Granny gave them all $5 to spend! The older boys played all the games that would spit out the most tickets and Dustin just wanted to ride all the little grocery store rides! and hour and a half later we left with two fake stabbing knives, a wormy, a bunch of laffy taffy's and three very happy boys!
Finally what we'd all been waiting for, our day at Lagoon with the Overson's!! LeAnn was the official roller coaster adult seeings how she was the only one who could go on them with the kids! Me being with child and Cord & Darin's motion sickness and of course Darin's bad neck, LeAnn was the go to girl!! Both Dillon & Degan surprised me and went on all the big coasters they were allowed on and just when I thought they'd chicken out they'd follow LeAnn and get on and come off with the biggest smiles and begging her to take them again! In fact we had so much fun we were there until closing and the kids decided it's their new favorite place besides the KOA of course! It's funny how an amusement park is so much more fun when you have a buddy to ride the rides with!!
