My Sister is Visiting!






I'm taking a break from posting the pics of Maine... We're back from Maine and my little sister, Laura, is out here visiting. She's going to EFY for a week too! On her first day here, we went to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house.. and then we went to tour the Bingham Copper Mine. The temple open house was really neat. Plus, living in Maine, you don't see many temple open houses. We had a wonderful time. The copper mine was really cool. The hole is HUGE and the dump trucks were the biggest things I've ever seen. They even had a set of stairs to get up to the driver's seat. Crazy!!

Maine!!


This is our first day in Maine. We went on the ferry out to Peaks Island with my mom. We rented bikes and rode around the island!!! Probably one of my favorite things to do!! and then we got blueberry ice cream after the bike ride. The funniest thing was mom riding the tandem bike- all I have to say is- she made lots of funny screams while riding. More pics to come!

ok... the last of the arizona pics..


Alright, there are a few more pics to post of Arizona, but these are pretty much the last of them. We went to downtown flagstaff one of the last nights in Arizona. We also went canoe-ing on the 4th. John forgot his sweatshirt in the car and had to borrow his mom's jacket instead. Pretty funny! Ahh.. it was a great trip. Up next is the pics of our Maine trip!

Flagstaff: Slide Rock

we went to a place in Sedona called Slide Rock. It was awesome. It's natural waterslides made in the rock. We spent a few hours there.. swimming and sliding. We also had some fun on a rope swing! This place was probably my favorite part of the whole trip.

It was an awesome view at the top.. you could see everything!.. and there was some cactus up there.. and some lizards. Very cool!

While in Flagstaff, we also went on a mountain bike ride. It ended up being really really long.. but it was fun. There were some really awesome views. John did some crazy parts of the trail where everyone else walked their bikes down. (as seen in video). More pics to come!
