Back in the car we were able to endure traffic and construction to finally arrive at the Burton's house. We were glad to be there and loved having so much family around. Besides Grandma and Grandpa and Josh (also serving his mission) , everyone of the Wood family was there. Each day we were together we had a big activity in the morning that we did together then we spent the afternoons doing whatever we wanted. For us the afternoons were spent swimming at the pool, playing games or sleeping off the busy morning. The first day was an all day thing though. We went back up to Denver to play at Elich Gardens, a six flags amusement park. It was hard to move that many people at once so we often times split up. Thanks to cell phones and texting though we all met up at different times, swapped stories, ate lunch, and then went off again. I am somewhat of a ride wimp but it was fun to see all the kids having so much fun on the rides that made me sick to even look at! Sam also was not a fan of the rides. She was terrified of anything that left the ground so she spent most of her time at the bumper cars and loved it.
