Lagoon, The 24th of July, and family pictures

Hey everyone. The next couple of days are going to be hectic. Today we are going to get our family pictures taken, just Blake Grace and I.

We are going to Photogenix. My grandma has free photo sessions there. They are great photographers. It should turn out great!
Then, tomorrow is the 24th of July. If some of you don't know, the 24th of July is an official Utah state holiday (and some of the surrounding states as well) celebrating the settling of the pioneers. It commemorates the entry of Brigham Young and the Mormon Pioneers into the Salt Lake valley. There are fireworks and parades and BBQ's. Grace and I are probably going to go to the parade in the morning. Blake has to work, so I haven't decided exactly what we are going to do.
Anyway, on Thursday night my family is going to be driving down from Idaho, to go to Lagoon on Friday. I am super excited for that too! Lagoon is a theme park here in Utah that we try to make it to each year. The problem with Lagoon this year is that it is going to cost us an arm and a leg. We have discount passes and it is going to cost us $27.50 per person. That includes Grace!! Oh well. I am excited to hang out with my family. They have several new rides this year, so we are excited to try them out. My favorite ride is Rattlesnake Rapids. Everyone can go on this ride, including Grace! Its a river raft ride that you ride down 'rapids' and under waterfalls, Its so fun!Last time we went, I was pregnant so I couldn't go on any of the fun rides! I am so excited that I am so excited that I am going to get to go on all the big roller coasters!! I will be sure to have tons of pictures to post!!
