Trip to Provo

Last month, the five younger kids and I went to Provo for a couple of weeks to spend time with Rachel and Summer to keep them company while their husbands were gone, to send Gwen and Kelly to EFY, and for Summer and me to take a knife making class.

It was great to be together with all seven kids. We all missed having Stan with us, who stayed home to hold down the fort.

Naomi visited Mars, well, the Mars diorama at the Clark Planetarium.

 
Summer, also at the planetarium, tested the plasma ball with her nose.

We hiked up to Stewart's Falls, seeing pretty flowers on the way.


 
Can you find Rachel, Heather, Michael, Gwen and Naomi?

I have never done woodworking before, but...

Summer and I had SO MUCH FUN making knives and other tools.

Here are the three knives, two lifers, spatula and folder I made.

Here is Summer camouflaged by her dress on the big sleeping bag Rachel let the kids use while we were there.

It was a wonderful trip!
