On July 23rd I did something that I haven't done for about 15 years. I went to Lagoon. We stopped going when Kristine was old enough to go with friends. I went with Randy and Sasha and it was a blast. We had decided to be there at 11:00 and then we figured that she would only be able to handle two or three hours so that would be just fine. She went on every kiddie ride. Randy and I would ride with her on the kiddie rides that adults could go on. Randy also went with her on the Tidal Wave, Tilt a Whirl, and we all rode on the ferris wheel, train, etc. She was still having so much fun we decided to stay and eat the meal Novell furnished at 5:00. After that Randy took Sasha to Lagoona Beach. She had so much fun on the slides and doing everything she possibly could until someone threw up in the water and they had to close it down. At least Randy and Sasha had been in there for about an hour. After I helped her get dressed she was ready to go on more rides. I couldn't believe it. She just went from one ride to another. I finally decided I'd better go home at 8:00. She kept going until 10:00 then fell asleep in the stroller on the way to the car. What a little sport she was. It was a day I won't forget.

Weekend in Salina

July 3rd Dad and I headed for Salina. We haven't been there since Thanksgiving so it was good to go down there. We ran a few errands in Salt Lake, went to Sweet Tomato and had lunch, then went to Provo and visited with Patrice, Sasha, and Sampson. We were there a couple of hours. It was so much fun playing with Sasha and seeing just how much Sampson had grown.

We got to Salina around 7:00 and visited with Grandpa and Grandma Taylor. They are doing pretty good considering they are 83 and 82. On July 4th we went to Acord Lake at 9:30 a.m. We visited some more, walked around, then had lunch. We came back to Salina about 1:00. A couple of hours later Randy, Patrice, Sasha, and Sampson came. We went to the parade and Sasha got her bag full of candy.

July 5th we did more visiting then at 12:30 we headed for the Redmond Park where my 40 year class reunion was. It was a blast. There has only been 3 reunions. The five year, fifteen, and twenty. I had only gone to the five year so it had been a long time since I had seen my classmates. There were 47 in our graduating class so we knew each other pretty well. There were a couple I didn't recognize and had to be told who they were but most of the others hadn't changed much. It was great getting caught up with them. We visited for about 3 hours. It sure brought back a lot of memories.

We stopped at Provo again for a Sasha and Sampson break.

It was nice to get away for a few days. The last time we went anywhere was in November.
