Cousin ADventure Day #10 Liberty Park and the "Canyons"

I LOVE Liberty Park. I have great childhood memories of that park, and I love to take my boys there. We usually go at least once a summer! This week we decided to go three for cousin adventure day! Zach has been dying to go. Each week he asks if that is where we are going, so we finally found a day that would work! It was a little nutty trying to meet up (I was texting Mary's cell which was apparently dead, and she was calling my house leaving messages for me, but I was already at the park! I finally found Mike's cell phone number and texted him and we found each other!) but once we did it was a FABULOUS time! The Canyons at Liberty Park are so much fun. There is a splash pad there too and the boys like it, but nothing holds a candle to the canyons. It's set up like the Salt Lake Valley with all of it's rivers, canyons and lakes. The water flows down the canyons and fills the lakes. There are cool water falls and everything! And it's not deep so I don't worry too much! The Canyons + Cousins= Heaven!

This is what you get when you say "Tyler!!! Just LOOK at me!!"

Ty is forever helping me. What a life saver!

Nick LOVED the swing, and the fact that Lucas was pushing him!

He's Got His WeBLoS!!!

Tyler has his WeBLoS!!! I can't believe he's that big! And now after Day camp he has finished his Arrow of Light! Yippie! BB Gun here we come!!!

Matt Got awards too!! He's so cute!

Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo!! (And cousin adventure #9)

We LOVE the Rodeo! We look forward to it every year! This year Mary and Mike (and kids) and Michelle, Amanda and Chelsea Voigt went with us. The kids all love watching the animals, but it was hilarious to watch Nick and Kyle! They loved the horses. They would cheer and laugh! Kyle especially loved the CowGIRLS!! I am amazed but the kids lasted all the way through the fireworks! Shoulda been a cowboy!

It was HOT!!
Nick was amazed by the horses!

Tyler was tired when we started! Who knows how he made it to the fireworks!
we sat on the front row for a reason! Little boys need room to squirm!

The boys were waiting all night for the motorcycles! These aren't the greatest pic's but, they give the idea!!Zach caught a shirt!! And then Isaac and Lucas had to try it on too!
