Lagoon Day!

We took Kaden to Lagoon last week. There were a few rides he could go which made it really fun. He tried cotton candy for the first time. He reached in his mouth to see what it was that he was eating, and was gone. He was so confused??

I was a little nervous with him on the rides because he is quite the Great Houdini when it comes to escaping. No matter how hard I tighten the shopping cart seat belts, he always finds a way to escape. Luckily he had older cousins who could hold him on all the kiddie rides. We had a great time.

While I was at Lagoon I got to thinking about some fond memories I have of Lagoon.
1. Before the freeway was re-done there were green posts on the side of the road that started about 5 minutes before the Lagoon exit. My tummy would always get really excited when I would see those posts.
2. I always felt bad for the sad looking sheep that lived underneath the white roller coaster...couldn't they have found a better home for them?
3. I loved the flying carpet ride. I was sad when they got rid of that.
4. I loved getting the old fashioned pictures with my friends in Pioneer village.
5. Stake Lagoon day was the best. I remember that being the highlight of my summer as a kid.
6. My favorite childhood memory was feeling like I was still riding rides when I was in my bed after a long day at Lagoon.
We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on August 8th. We started off the day with a morning hike to Stewart falls up Provo canyon. It was about 2 miles with only a slight incline which is the perfect difficulty level for me.

Kaden fell asleep on the hike down. It was so cute to see him sleeping the the backpack.
Here is another one of Kaden sleeping and holding onto Rob's shirt for dear life. He had a death grip to Rob the whole time he was sleeping. It was funny.

Our anniversary celebration pretty much ended there because I got sick and threw up when we got to the waterfall. I spent the rest of the day/night in bed. It was a pretty bad deal..not only for me, but for all the people who hiked to the waterfall that day were greeted by a large pile of vomit!
