Dylan's bday and the zoo

So we had a fun trip to the zoo this summer. I can't even really remember when it was, I just know it was hot! Sydney was so excited about the giraffes and was sorely disappointed about the Hogle Zoo's lack of zebras. The baby elephant was very cute too.



Then we also celebrated Dylan's birthday. I spent a few hours at the temple which gave me a lot of peace for the day. Then we went to his grave and let Sydney and cousin Carly let go of helium balloons to "send them to heaven" for him. We also had an angel food cake. I included a picture of his headstone because I know many have not been able to come see it yet. Thank you again Seth for the amazing picture. I tried to get a picture of the girls letting go of the balloons, but Carly let go too quickly, and we had to really encourage Sydney several times to let go of hers.

Hey, where is Dylan? It would be nice, if I am ever close, to go and visit.
Thanks for hanging out with us when we were camping. We should go for a girls ride again!
Love you guys!

The zoo looks so fun!

I'm glad you were able to go to the temple on Dylan's birthday to feel some peace.

Sydney is looking so grown up. WOW! Thanks for posting about Dylan. We often wonder how you guys are doing. We miss you!

I really wish we could have been there for his bady. I'm glad we could come a few months later and the girls could roll down the hill and pick flowers. :) Miss yoU!
