Summer that never got mentioned

This summer was full of so many fun and hard things. Since I am not the best at keeping up with this, it is happening at Christmas. We spent Pioneer Day in Nevada, at one of my most favorite places in the world. There is always a spirit of gladness, tons to do (if you like adventure and dirt), and family. A great memory for my kids is that we were able to follow some wild mustangs! Truly! My uncle knew just where to find them. My kids still talk about it. We also went to Antelope Island for the first time (that I can remember). It was really fun, we saw a bunch of Bison and got to talk to an artist who put one of his works on the island for people to enjoy. It was really cool. My kids called it a "gypsy boat". There were solar panels on it so it could power a freezer. If you were tenacious enough to go out in the field and look at the art, you would be rewarded because there were fudge pops in the freezer. It was really fun. Also, boating at Jordanelle, picnics at Silver Lake Flat (where we were too close to a mama moose), sisters day out, Lehi Round-up, and so much more. It was a great summer.
