Madeline's cute haircut

Madeline and her friend Katy went to get haircuts before school starts. They both turned out so cute! Can you believe these girls are only 12?! They look so grown up and pretty. Look out 7th grade, here they come!

Mother and Daughters

These are just pretty pictures we took of each of us at Temple Square next to the pretty flowers.

Park City & Olympic Park

On our last day of Utah sightseeing, my sisters and I drove to Park City. First we did the chair lift. Erin did really well at not freaking out when we got really high. It starts pretty innocently right in town and goes up the first hill. THEN it keeps going up and up and gets pretty high! We were on it for about 30 minutes altogether. We didn't dare get off at the top to look around because we knew we'd never get Erin back on! She was scouting out loggers that we could see and making comments that she was pretty sure she could walk to them and make them drive her back down the mountain! This picture is of us coming back down into the town.

Then we stopped at Olympic Park and were lucky enough to catch a kids freestyle ski jumping camp practice. It was neat to see these kids going down the ramps and flipping into the pool. Since we used up Erin's 'fear factor' allotment for the day, we didn't do the bobsled ride. Instead I took my picture in one at the gift shop! Still cool.

Sisters Salt Lake Sightseeing

After my stamp convention Laurel & Erin met me in SLC and we went sightseeing and had lots of fun! We took a tour of Welfare Square and sampled the delicous bread, butter, jam, and cheese and got to help our Sister missionary tour guides teach the 4 other people on our tour (who were snowbirds from Florida) about fast offerings and taking care of people. It was really neat. The missionary couple who drove the tour van were so cute too, they took our picture for us.

Next, we went to the Bingham Copper Mine. It is HUGE and very cool to see. So that was interesting and fun too. Mostly we just had fun talking and laughing along the way!

Madeline's first Girl's Camp

Madeline went to her first year of Girl's Camp last month. She had a lot of fun! Her favorite things were archery, crafts, and campfires. Good times!
