Such a fun trip to Lake Tahoe! We stayed with the Connors' in their private timeshare right on the Keys in South Lake Tahoe. We hiked, went on bike rides, paddleboated, fished off the dock, rented a boat for half day, took lots of pictures and had a blast! There are even some underwater shots!

We got to attend the Leishman's 4th of July BBQ although I literally was there for 20 minutes and then it was time to head to the stadium. Diane took Deb & I and dropped off my car in a good area to boogie out afterwards as to not be in horrible traffic. Then she dropped us off near the stadium and we met the Connors' who had gotten there early and reserved us seat backs as we were in the bleachers. (Thanks Marleen!) Wendy and Sandie dropped off an hour later Madison, Jason, Abby, Brenna, Janna & Jason. It worked out great to not have the kids there so long before. Sandie then went and checked Megan out of EFY (early) which saved us coming back and getting her at 6:30 a.m. Megan then got to enjoy being with the family at the Leishman's. Thanks to all the drivers who made it all work out!
The 6 parachuters and Fighter Jets added great dramatics to the show. Hey -- what's up with this? Since we were in the end-zone that automatically makes us part of the patriotic presentation. We kept saying . . . "I bet this looks cool . . . too bad we are missing it." Can you say claustrophobic??
Loved the field show more than anything else! We are so proud to be Americans!! and blessed. (Note the Red, White & Blue tarps are now being passed below us). Having so many performers on the field made it hard to fight back the tears. Awesome!!
Madison & Courtney show off their light displays.
They had special glasses that made everything look like a prism. Something fun to do while Miley sang her newest "unknown" songs.
We avoided the crowds by leaving when the fireworks started. I know we would have enjoyed them more from our seats but driving away in our car as they ended felt really good! We did stop to catch a few Kodak Moments as we passed the thousands of on-lookers outside the stadium. We now know what a Stadium of Fire experience is all about!! Too Fun!

When you come from a large family it is easy to get a reputation. The Moore girl reputation was one to be proud of as our parents taught us many things and among them was to be hard working, dependable, and service oriented. My older sisters helped pave the way as they exercise these characteristics and so many more. Being the youngest I feel it has been easy for me to be blended into both generations of our family. Ruth Ann, Diane and Della have been so great to come to my aid whenever needed and stepped into "Mother" roles. They have given my children their first baths since Mom was needed taking care of Dad. I've watched my neices play with and care for my children when they were teenagers, and now they are all amazing young women and mothers. Although we all now have different last names I still take pride in knowing I'm a "Moore Girl" and that is something that will forever pull us all together. I wish this picture had all of us Moore Girls but we know how difficult it is to get us all in the same place. We hope knowing that you were missed helps if just a little.

Megan reconnecting with her cousins' children; Abby, Claire, and Brenna!
On Tuesday, we went to Veteran's Pool and met Amy, Seth, Janna, Claire, Jodi, Talmage, McKay, Debra, Abby & Brenna. The kids loved cooling off in hot summer temps. (Note the white tubes in background -- Jason and Talmage loved the water slides!)
Jason got to hang out with the Leishmans and wants to move into their neighborhood!
Amy & Seth -- one of the few moments Amy got to rest from chasing him around the waterpark.

Ruth Ann & Della at the Provo Temple.
We went to Lehi to see Amy and she and Seth joined us for a drive to see the new Draper Temple and then we went for a yummy lunch!
They are hoping this temple with it's amazing views will attract more brides and help elleviate Salt Lake Temple.
This tiny, conservative, home sits above the Draper Temple. Gee, I hope they can afford a housekeeper!

This is an exact replica in size and weight of the brass plates. Joseph Smith was an amazingly strong man to be able to carry let alone run with these plates.
Gee, this gives a whole different meaning to "Time Out!"
