This Is The Place Monument

Thursday July 15, 2010

We went to This Is The Place to meet Nichole, Tyler, & Kate. They live in AZ and are in Utah visiting. I had never been there other then just to look at the big statue, which I didn't get a picture of, but inside the park is really fun. Nichole's cousin's and their kids came as well.
They have all of these old buildings that you can tour and then old fashion activities in most of them for the kids to do. It was like walking back in time it was really neat.
This is all of the kids

Steph, Braydon, Kate, Kelsey, Kenzie, Tyler, Colton, Kate, Keilei and baby Rush.

Tyler holding Rush. It was the first time they had met & Tyler was so cute with him!

Cousins-Kate, Tyler, Rush, & Keilei

washing clothes on a wash board, then ironing them with Kate

On the "train" that takes you to the next part of the park. Keilei would have just rode this all day she loved it.

Getting a tour of one of Brigham Young's houses. We didn't last too long before we had to take the kids outside. They found some horses to feed.

Keilei & Kate

random pics of my kids

We had lunch out front of The general store and got ice cream in the old hotel

The kids learned what it was like to go to school back then,

Keilei and her silky she takes it every where with her, Tyler helping Keilei stamp a design into leather.

Keilei riding a horse. She cried the whole time.

Nichole helping Kate & Keilei to get into the bunks in a mock ship

They had a little mini train you could take the kids on. This is the view, it was awesome, all the old houses are park of the park

goose on the train tracks, it kept following Keilei.

We had dinner at a place up the canyon it was really good.
Then we said goodbye to Nichole & the kids. It was really good to see them. We hadn't seen them since before Rush was born so it was great. We miss them a lot.
