Every year the 4th grade goes to Antelope Island. BUT the best part of the trip is the bike ride! We start the trip with a 7 mile ride across the causeway. This year was really fun. Mike and I both got to go with Matt! I was a little (ok a lot) worried about the ride because of the rain. It's been raining non stop! The morning was wet, but the rain stopped in time for us to ride the causeway! Matt, who is a very determined child, was the first person to finish the ride. We were done about 45 minutes before the end of the line actually :). It was so fun! It gave Matt a lot of time to skip rocks! After the ride we played at the beach and had lunch (Matt's favorite part of the beach was the seagull skull that the girls found !) and then went on a fun hike.....in the pouring rain! The good thing about the rain is that it kept the bugs away. Once the rain stopped the bugs swarmed us and ....we were eaten alive! It was just so much fun to spend the day with Mike and Matt. I LOVED it! Thanks Mary for keeping the little ones!
