Here is some of the fun stuff we were able to do:
Willie got a "Splash Into Summer" pass from work with some discounted and free passes to attractions. We went and rode the NY NY rollercoaster with it. I kind of expected it to be like a kiddie rollercoaster...not so. It was so scary, and I kept thinking "I am too old for this!" as we were riding it. Which is kind of sad haha. But in the past few years I just can not handle rides like I used to be able to!
We went to the Shark Reef Aquarium with our friends from the ward who have a little boy who just loves sharks. It was pretty cute to see how excited he was. There is a part where you go in this tunnel and the sharks are swimming all around you. It was fun!

Willie's mom treated us all to some delicious dessert at Serendipity
The desserts were SO good!
My mom was in town (at her house in Mesquite) for a couple of weeks. It was so fun to have her nearby! While she was here, she took us to see Aladdin at the Tuachan in St. George. We love the Tuachan, and had a great time. The play was different than the movie, but so good!
Willie gave blood at work and got us free tickets to Recycled Percussion! It was so much fun, and far exceeded my expectations (especially considering I originally thought he was getting us tickets to a recycling plant...I was super confused about why he wanted to donate blood to get them haha). Recycled Percussion was on America's Got Talent. They use all different materials and tools to make music.
We also used Willie's splash into summer pass to get into the Adventuredome at the Circus Circus. We went with our new friends the Longhurts, and had a great time!
We rode some rides and did laser tag. My first time ever! Before we went in, I was saying I hoped I wouldn't end up in last place. It was fun playing, then when I looked at my final score I got...ZERO!!! How is that even possible? Willie tells me it must have been a computer error. I know I heard the machine say I got hits when I was playing, so I am hoping he is right!
Willie's sister Marcie and her family came into town, but no pictures :( It was so good to see them, and we had so much fun with them!! We also had our friends Charlotte and Chayse and Josh and Megan each in town for a night. We had a great time with all of them! It was so fun to catch up with them both. We have loved having so many family members and friends here this month, and will miss them all!
