The whole time we were in Sandy, Utah we told Tralee we would take her to the Alpine Slides in Park City on Saturday night. Saturday was the chosen day, since Jim got off work earlier. All week long the weather was sunny, hot, and not a raindrop to be seen. Saturday came around and a big thunderstorm blew in. I was worried that it wouldn't pass soon enough, and the slides would be closed. I told Tralee that maybe we should say a prayer and see if that would help the Alpine Slides to be open. Tralee said a sweet little prayer, and afterwards she said, "Don't worry Mom. I said a prayer, Heavenly Father will answer it." Sweet girl.
The rain stopped when we got to Park City, but there was still some iffy looking clouds in the distance. I was holding my breath when Jim and Tralee went to check at the ticket counter. They informed us to check back in about an hour, and if there was no lightening seen, they would open the slides back up. I kept my breath held for Tralee's sake, while she kept informing me that her prayer would work. Oh to have the simple faith of a four-year-old! We killed time by picking out some treats at a candy shop, window shopping, and watching the kids run around. Exactly an hour later, we checked in at the ticket gate and. . . THE SLIDES WERE OPEN! Hooray! Tralee's sweet little prayer was answered, and good thing it was, because we had SO MUCH FUN!

And lastly, here is a picture of my cute kids and me. I'm SO glad Tralee's prayer was answered!
