Yea! We are one step closer to summer vacation! But do you think we have topazenough information to convince my dad to change his mind to Utah? What makes Juab County so special?  Why did we choose Topaz Mountain?

Today I overheard my mom and dad talking about our summer vacation. They are still arguing about where we are going to go.  Dad still wants to go to Arkansas and mom still wants to go to Utah.  I really want to go to Utah, too.  We must be missing something, but what?

I really need your help to find something that will persuade my dad to change his mind. Will you PLEASE help me?  I'm sure I can count on you.
