Sweet Sixteen ~ Sweet Lily
Lagoon Birthday Trip
That went mostly to plan, with one big bummer. Lily started feeling sick the day we got there, plus a hurt wrist and sore back. The first day at Lagoon, she started out feeling ok but had a sore throat. By Monday, Lily felt awful and stayed in the rental with Steve just resting while Amara and I spent half a day at Lagoon.Since Amara and I don't ride roller coasters, we pretty much spent our time in the several museums around the park.
Though it wasn't our ideal trip, we did enjoy the time we did spend out there.
|Lily love Kneaders cheese soup with sourdough bread!|
|There was one couch in the little apartment we rented. We folded it out into a bed and piled on to watch shows.|
|Our views of the sunset were AMAZING!|
|Steve and Lily were buddies at Lagoon since the two of them wanted to ride the roller coasters.|
|Amara and I were buddies keeping our feet on the ground ;)|
|Amara and I rode the kiddie rides, too because that's about the maximum G-forces we could take without getting ill.|
|Amara and I loved touring the historic homes and picturing life from years ago.|
|There were a few rides we met up for like the carousel, tram ride, and the Ferris wheel.|
|We decided to stand in a giant line to get $5 ice cream cones because it was so hot outside and that building had awesome air conditioning! It also had some old apothecarial-type things on display that we enjoyed looking at.|
|I love seeing the old medicines.|
|From the top of the Ferris wheel you can see that Lagoon is building another new roller coaster.|
|This ride has been around since I was a child. It used to be one of my favorites. Now, it's just too fast, but it's fun to watch Steve and Lily have fun on it.|
|Here's me with Amara in the FRONT SEAT of another kiddie ride!|
|Yet another gorgeous sunset from our apartment rental.|
|I loved sitting on the little front patio in the mornings to enjoy my breakfast in the summer shade.|
I really enjoyed going to a nearby cemetery to visit the graves of my Fackrell ancestors. They were pioneers that settled and helped build up the area of Bountiful, Utah.

The following few pictures are some of the cool things we viewed at the museums in Lagoon. There was a museum of old toys which was fun!
|such intricate details of these toys!|
|Amara loved this horse statue.|
|Some doll house furniture and other toys.|
|These mini dolls were made of peanuts. They actually look pretty creepy to me, but I thought it was a great use of peanuts.|
|Another gorgeous sunset.|
