UTAH VACATION!! Zion National Park and Park City!

While attending a charity auction for Maggie's Place we purchased a 6 night vacation package to Park City UT that included passes to the Olympic Park to do zip-lines, slides, ski jump show, and a bobsled ride. We stayed in a 4 bedroom townhouse with our good friends Carrie and Paul, the ideal travel partners. We were walking distance to Main St. and the townhouse is a ski-in-ski-out house on the mountain. It was a beautiful 75 degrees in Park City. We decided to drive the Prius to Park City (12 hours!) so we tacked on a 2 night stay in Springdale, UT at the entrance of Zion National Park. One of my favorite things to do is pre-plan trips and I must say all my research really served us well in Zion. The hotel was PERFECT, we had the best meals, and the 2 hikes we took were ideal for us. The usually hot 95 degree weather in Zion cooled down to a beautiful 75* for us! We spent a night with Cameron's parents in Flagstaff (2.5 hour drive), celebrated Father's day a little early, drove 5 hours to Zion, then drove 5.5 hours to Park City. On the way home we drove the entire 12 hour drive straight, making it 14 hours with stops. Liberty was happy as a clam the whole time (except 1 particular 15 min cry). My secret new toy/book bag came in handy, and I also credit our success to pringle chips, camelback water bottle, matchbox cars and daddy's watch. Truthfully, Liberty had a blast and we had the time of our life sharing this vacation with her.

Liberty just started doing this funny face whenever we ask her to SMILE! for the camera - She squints and scrunches her whole face.

Splash Pad

Here are some pictures and small, poor quality videos of Liberty and our friends at a nearby Splash Pad. We got together with friends for a dinner at Liberty Market, and then walked to the splashpad next door so Liberty, Adalyn and Sienna could play in the water. Liberty had a great time winning the fearless wild child award.
