This year (and last year) my girls sold tons of cookies! More than we have ever sold, in fact. As we were looking at our financial reports, we realized we had almost $1200 in our account. Normally, if I have $300 to start the new scout year I am ecstatic, so this was an amazing amount of money for the troop.
When I asked the girls what they would like to do, Princess spoke up that she would love to go to Tuacahn. For those of you who live outside the state of Utah, Tuacahn is an outdoor amphitheater in St. George where they put on Broadway-caliber shows. I'd never been before, but I heard their shows were awesome!
|No pics allowed in the amphitheater, so we took this outside.|
We left promptly at 2:30 last Friday afternoon. We had three vehicles traveling in our group and we wanted to arrive before 7:00. The show started at 8:45 but we needed to feed the girls and check into the hotel before we took the 20-minute drive to Tuacahn.

The show was even better than I was hoping! They had live camels and the part about the Cave of Wonders? It was all done in 3D. They even climbed on a "magic carpet" and sailed out over the audience! The girls loved it!

We woke them for free breakfast around 8:00 and I told them if they hurried there would be time to swim before we checked out. They opted for the outdoor pool with the fun waterfall. Teach and I donned our suits to play lifeguards and my sweetie snapped the pics.

After an hour we gathered up our rooms and checked out of the hotel. I thought the girls would sleep the entire ride home but they didn't. We stopped about halfway and picked up some fried chicken and corn dogs for lunch. We dropped off the girls just after 3:00 at their houses and then my sweetie and I went home and took a nap.
Now that's my kind of camping!
