End of Summer!

The end of summer was more swimming, playing, Pioneer Day, reading, ice cream and chores!

 How could you NOT swim with this stud?

 Pioneer Day Activities at the Mesa Temple!

Somebody realized she likes to read!

Road Trip

We said good-bye to grandma and grandpa and headed to Colorado

The car always puts him right out--even in the middle of lunch.

We hit some big rain/wind storms in Wyoming

We got to stay at the Higginbothams in Thornton (near Denver)
and had so much fun catching up and playing!

Mine and Jessica's!

We have been friends for so long, love these lasting friendships!

Jessica and I will always be friends!

We then stopped in Colorado Springs to visit with my favorite cousin Tracy (Sargeant) Phillips.

Sleeping in a hotel in New Mexico was an adventure.....

SO happy to be home!

Oh MAN this was such a blast!  This was our kids first experience at an amusement park (roller coasters!) and we had so much fun!!

One of my all time favorite pictures.  Love Anna's face so much!

We got soaked on the log ride (especially mom)!!

Evan and I went and got a snack while the bigger kids did other rides

Soooo tired.  Love these kids so much, it was awesome to see them enjoy themselves so much!

Utah Summer Trip

After Elise was here, she drove back up with us to Utah.  A few spilled drinks, Anna using the restroom on the side of the road and name that movie tune were the highlights of the road trip

It's not summer unless Elise does Natalie's nails.

Great food--popcorn bar!!

We swam in grandma and grandpa's neighbors pool, it was beautiful!

Great action shots by grandpa!

My gorgeous boy

Another popcorn bar at Scott's house for the 4th of July!  He put on QUITE a show and we were all showered with firework shrapnel

We went out to Deer Creek with Debbie and Lynn.  Love them so much, especially with how they love my kids. 

Target trip of course!!

Evan loves his uncle Lynn!

We love to visit Grandmother Gerstner and feel of her unconditional love

Life as we know it is full of laughter, fun, stress, love, faith and surprises. What more could we ask for?
