Utah Trip 2011, Part One (LAGOON!)

Oh, it's been so fun to look through pictures of our trip in July to Utah. We did so many fun things. One of my favorites was our trip all together to Lagoon! We started with burgers at Inn N Out. Yum.I had warned the boys that I was going to force them to go on a couple of rides even if they didn't want to. (I found my love for roller coasters by being coerced onto the Colossus by my mother when I was young and wanted to provide the same opportunity.) The first ride we chose was one of those opportunities. It was the one where you sit in a car and go around on a circular track really fast. Here's the before picture:And the after picture. Justin recovered well, Joseph was still not happy.He was much happier playing the carnival games. He and Justin and Darren even won stuffed animals.Then it was time for snacks and dogpiles on GrandpaAnd a nap for Erica.I got to ditch my kids to ride the big rollercoasters with my sibs. The new coaster "Wicked" is super fun!The train is always a crowd pleaser.And my Dad took so many great pictures of the kids riding the cars!Cute cousinsErica finished out the night on the merry go round with Taylor.

Cute! We have GOT to get Joseph to like rides because I REALLY want you guys to come to disneyland.

That looks like a blast! I have only been to Lagoon once and I have a feeling it's a lot different now. They are all such cute cousins. I love the car pics.

Miss you guys!

Those pictures are so beautiful! I love the cousin pictures. And I'm so glad you captured the boys terror of the roller coasters, those will be very funny to them someday :) I understand their pain. Waiting in line is the worst! You just fear for your life! Then when it's over, it's so worth it!!

Looks like tons of fun and I'm glad you guys had a blast!

Miss you all!

Those are so adorable! Cute cousins is right, those girls are so cute. Joseph is looking so much older it just kills me. What a fun trip, can't wait to see more photos. Miss you all and looking forward to a visit. Wish I could share your love for the rides but no way:)
