Manti Pagent

I wish I would have taken some pictures, I had my camera but it just never made it out of the car. 

While my parents and brother's kids were at our house we decided to go see the Manti Pagent in Manti of course.  It was so much fun!  The last time we went Emily was a little over a year.  I am glad I noticed it was the same time that my parents were here. 

I saw that the Lehi Rodeo was when they would be at the house, I thought that would be fun.  I asked my mom if I should get tickets... and then somehow I noticed that the Manti Pagent was going on too.  I talked to my mom and she thought that would be fun too.  We skipped the rodeo and did the pagent instead. 

I called around and finally found a motel in Ephrium.  Robert's parents and his niece came with us too.  We went Thursday and came home Friday. 

When we were driving through Ephrium, I was realizing I forgot to get the address (or even the name of the motel).  I told Robert and he kind of joked, "how hard can it be to find it?"  We drove through the town and had to turn around to go back again.  We saw one place and I figured it was it but it didn't look like the picture completely.  It was it though... they had our reservations.

At the pagent, Amber couldn't be quiet...  "are those bats?"  I told her yes, they are looking for food.  "What do they eat?"  I told her stuff like bugs that fly in the air that the bats catch.  I also reminded her of the bats at the zoo we have seen that eat fruit.  Amber looks and me really funny and says, "What kind of fruit is flying fruit?"  Aww, she was cracking me up! 

Later there is a part that fire comes out of the rocks in the program.  Amber says, "are they going to explode on us?"  I told her no, it was just pretend and it was more like a match.  When the fire went out she asked, "Who blew out the match?" 

Another part of the program Jesus appears, Amber asks in her really loud voice, "Is that the REAL Jesus?" 

She was cracking me up!  Although after it was all over, she was so upset and wanted to go back to our house and sleep in MY bed... she wasn't interested in going to the motel.  She did however fall asleep right away when she got in her sleeping bag on the floor in our room. 

All the girls really liked it and they asked if we could go back again next time they had it.  It was also fun to do something fun before Lindsey and Lauren's baptism.
