We have had a busy and fun summer so far! It's hard to believe the summer is half way over...(yay!!) It will be nice to go back to 7:30pm bedtimes and scheduled days again but till then....
Our babysitter Meg, got married in June. She had an ice cream bar at her reception and the boys were in HEAVEN! Although Thomas did tell her that "getting married was the worst thing that she could ever do and now she can't babysit him anymore, good job!" That kid kills me sometimes, but we are so happy for her and miss her already!
We've gotten to spend lots of time swimming at Grandma & Papa's house in the new pool & water slide with our cousins
David's baseball team went to Phoenix for the "All Night Woody" Tournament. I didn't go with him to this tournament, I didn't think the little boys would make it...they started the tournament at 6pm and played their last game of the tournament at 3am!! The boys had a great time!
After David got home from his tournament he headed up to baseball camp at BYU. He loved it again this year and made a lot of new friends. We stopped at the candy store in St. George on the way home and Thomas picked out these mustaches that he shared with Nathan on the way back.
I didn't stay the week in Utah like I did last year with the little boys, but we did manage to go to Bridal Veil Falls while we were up there and fed the fish in the pond.
and sadly....my car hit 100,000 miles on the way home from baseball camp!
We spent 4th of July with Lidia's family and had a GREAT time! They made a huge slippery soapy slip and slide in the back yard that the kids had a great time playing on.
The kids had fun watching the neighbors light off the good/illegal fireworks
We've also spent a lot of time this summer so far at the lake with cousins.
Thomas & Nathan have both discovered how fun the tube is and love to "toilet bowl" and tell Papa to "hit it"
David has mastered wakeboarding this summer and earned his wakeboard merit badge.
Thomas and Nathan both tried the horse shoe water ski. Nathan is not quite ready for it but Thomas did pretty good, and is willing to try it again!
I love this picture of Nathan...he was playing with the girl cousins and the girls were playing dress up. Nathan came downstairs in a princess dress and a raccoon skin hat! Such a good cousin!! He was SO happy when Jake got to Grandma's and he had a boy cousin to play with!
And finally....Nathan earned his orange stripe belt at karate!
Whew....I won't wait another 6 weeks to post! David is at scout camp this week and Thomas is in California at the beach and Disneyland with cousins and grandparents and Nathan is LOVING being an only child getting, doing and watching whatever he wants!
