We drove down to Manti for the Pageant in June. We had such a wonderful time! We can't wait to go back. We have never been to Manti it was a really unique experience for us. Just the sight of the Temple as you drive into town was beautiful! We camped at a local park that they open up for campers during the Pageant. It was $5 per family. I was very grateful that Brittyn who was not walking at the time had lush green grass to play in during our stay. I have taken babies her age camping in regular camp grounds. Let me tell ya, it is very hard to keep them clean. You basically hold them the entire 48 hours.

Not this camping trip! Daryl and Cameron took Max, Ruby & Ike fishing. Bayley and Breanna took a nap in one of the tents. Leah and I set up the baby pool and relaxed and watched Brittyn and Tyler play. One of the most relaxing camping trips I have been on!

Ruby! So cute!

Brittyn's first S'more! She loved it!

Bayley and Breanna getting comfy at the Pageant. All the kids were really good during the Pageant except Brittyn and Tyler. Leah and I had to tend them a bit. It was like 11pm before the play was over. So the babies were very tired. Josh and Sharsti joined us that evening. I wished I would have snapped a few pictures of them. Thanks to Leah and Cameron for the invite and going down a day earlier to set things up for us!

Way to go Max!

We are so happy for Max! He earned his Wolf badge last month. He worked hard all year. Max is becoming a very responsible young man! We love the Cub Scout program! Maxwell's favorite requirements were the ones were he had to plan a healthy menu and help Mom cook in the Kitchen. Thanks to all his den leaders who helped him reach his goals.
