Over the weekend, we went on a mini-Vacation to Midway - with our neighbors Troy, Andrea and their two boys Braxton and Tanner.

On Friday we went to the Homestead to swim in the Crater - it was a blast! The water was 90 degrees, and 65 feet deep. The Crater circulates its water every 3 days - It was very relaxing - Nick keeps trying to tell me that it was my spa treatment for the month - forget it Nick! Our video camera is currently holding our pictures hostage - so here are some views off line -

We also rode on the Heber Creeper! Braxton is obsessed with trains! The ride was beautiful! We were able to sit in an open-air car! The weather was perfect! It was so fun to see all of the changing colors!

On Saturday we drove to Park City to ride the Alpine Slide - unfortunately for us - they closed the slide down because of rain and lightning. We were a little upset - because there had been a slight drizzle, and no lightning - Despite our multiple phone calls, from different cell phones and callers - imploring them to open the slide - they would not. Braxton even suggested they make a cover for the slide to keep it from getting wet!

We headed down the canyon, and decided to settle for bowling. It was Braxton's first time bowling - however, he is quite the expert on the Wii - and he currently holds the record on our Wii at 192!

We stopped for some Cheesecake Factory - our all time favorite!! Paige's brother Mike and his wife Summer came to join us!
As usual - the food was DIVINE!

Mmmm, cheesecake factory. I'm totally jealous.
That crater is cool! That sucks about the Alpine slide. It's lame they wouldn't open it back up.

I'm so so jealous of you guys. You are always having so much fun. I will just have to live vicariously through you guys so keep vacationing.
