Our friend Sarah comes for a visit

After having lived here for just shy of a year, we finally had our first houseguest!  Sarah was driving through SLC on her way back to Sacramento, and she kindly changed her plans to wait until we were back from the rally so we could hang out!  I think we had been home ten minutes or less when she drove up!  The awesome thing about Sarah is that no matter how much time has passed, we just pick right up where we left off! much time had passed since we last saw each other since she's been off gallivanting around Egypt & Vermont, that she thought we had five children and one on the way!!  Crazy girl!! ;)  Seriously, I think I was pregnant with number three the last time we saw each other!

Anyway, we're sooo glad she rearranged her plans to spend a few days with us!  It was great catching up! It was a treat to see how much our kids enjoyed her company, and she joined right in with our craziness without skipping a beat!  She joined us for Steve's company picnic/party day at Lagoon amusement/water park, and she came along for a hike to Cecret Lake which included beautiful wildflowers, moose, rain, and a little preschool poop-drama!  Hey, we never said life was boring! :)

Miss you Sarah!!

Jake and Genna had an absolute blast at Lagoon.
Sarah, Steve, Shanan, Alyssa, and Genna got very wet on the Rattlesnake Rapids
The girls on the train, the only 'ride' that Linda was able to go on.
Jake loved Sarah. He still talks about her.
We spent one evening playing Uno and Apples to Apples
We always stop for a photo at this spot. 
Despite the rain, we made it to Cecret lake.  Notice the patches of snow in July.
A cow moose we saw on the drive up. We saw two more after our hike.
