They sang some of my favorites including "Ghost Riders in the Sky," "Big John," and "Master's Call." It was amazing to spend time with the family. We loved the show, the food and the time waiting in the line playing Speed Uno. It was great.
The next morning was even better. We floated down the Snake River on a scenic river trip. Scott, our guide, had to give us the safety spill. He told us that if we saw a bear- Do not scream, do not run because when you do you become food. It was hilarious and lets just say that we didn't see any bears to not scream at or run away from. He told us about the history of Jackson Hole from agriculture to tourism and it was so awesome. For a history junkie, it was great. We saw lots of ducks, bald eagles, Canadian geese, and pelicans. It was so much fun!!! We were the first run of the morning so we pretty much had the river to ourselves.
|Gorgeous scenery, huh?|

|Dad was asking Scott about farming or hunting.... I think.|
After the river run and Bullwinkle, we drove through Star Valley and stopped in Afton. That drive was so impressive. It was beautiful cattle country. We noticed some crazy things. Horses in Wyoming are huge. I'm not sure why, but every horse we saw was at least 16 hands tall which surprised both my dad and I. In Afton, we spent some time shopping. I wasn't in a shopping mood, but found a gorgeous quilt that we bought the pattern for. From Afton we drove to Fish Haven where we stopped for Raspberry shakes. Best shakes ever! They were so good. My parents weren't ready to be done with the vacation yet, so we spent the night in Bear Lake. And boy, did we have fun in Bear Lake. We stayed at Snow Meadows Inn. It was super cute and it gave me and Meagan the chance to work on our pool game.
I suggested that we go to the Pickleville Playhouse. We went to "The Hanging of El Bandito." It was so funny!!! I was rolling, I was laughing so hard. You could tell that the cast was ad libbing all over the place. Even they were cracking up. What made it even better was that one of my good friends from IWA, Megan Bagley, was in the cast. I loved this girl in IWA and I loved her even more as "Billy Jean." And that is how we ended our vacation. We packed up the next morning and drove to Logan.
Good things in Logan. I finished my internship at the Family Life Center and had my exit interviews on the day that I got back from vacation. There are a lot of mixed feelings. Relief that it is done, sadness because I will miss the people that I worked with, grateful that I was able to do it and learn so much from it, but mostly I'm glad that I had the opportunity to be there. I learned a lot about people and about myself while I was there. And I am nearing the end of my other internship. I have just over a week left and I'm done. What a summer?It has been super crazy with lots of things happening, but it has been good.
