June 21 – We started our drive home and stopped in Moab to visit Arches National Park.
Our hotel was right on the Colorado River.
Of course Carter had to try out the hotel pool!
Tuesday, June 18 – More swimming
Anderson Family Square Dancing
Kids’ Dance Party
We went back to Grandma Dewey’s house that night but met up with the Hicks family in Bountiful on their way out of town the next day.
June 16 – We drove up to Heber City for the Anderson Family Reunion at Timber Moose Lodge.
This was the first family reunion for the Jay and Nelda Anderson family in a whole lot of years. Dad was the only one of their children who was not there, because he’s on a mission in Germany. All of my siblings were there at some point, but not all at the same time. Ryan was there Sunday night but Jake’s family hadn’t arrived yet and John’s family was only there during the day on Monday.
June 17 – After breakfast, we hit the giant indoor pool.
Hiking around the grounds we saw a deer.
Pastels with Aunt Barbara
I helped Connie make a whole bunch of batches of a variation of these goodies; we used Rice Chex instead of corn flakes and left off the chocolate on top. In a couple batches we used nutella instead of peanut butter. These things disappeared fast!
That evening we all rode the Heber Creeper.
First, the wild-west shootout.
There was a lot of entertainment along the journey.
Some didn’t get into it as much as others.
