We had a lot of fun this summer, one day a bunch of us took the kids up to Bridal Veil Falls. We had a picnic and then let the kids play at the bottom of the falls. They had so much fun, at one point Landon came up to me and said "this is awesome, it's just like a splash park." It really was fun, sometimes I forget to utilize all of the natural resources we have here.

We got to spend the 4th of July weekend at the Zoll cabin which is always a good time. Stacia was like a little monkey. She kept climbing higher and higher on the rope swing.

Everyone had fun playing with this big tube, even the "big" boys :)

On the 4th the kiddos all looked super festive, Kamree and Makayla didn't care to be photographed.

We went to a parade in Mt. Pleasant.

Then we went fishing.

There was also a fair in town (not a very good one) so we took the kids and they found this dog who they fell in love with.

One of the men who was in the rodeo let the kids sit on his horse which was really fun for them.

And of course you have to have fireworks. The mt pleasant Firework show was really awesome, I highly recommend it if you happen to be there on the 4th.

We ended the summer the same way we started it. With a fabulous camping trip. We went to Flaming Gorge where we floated the green river. The boys did a lot of fishing, the kids did a lot of exploring and I did a lot of eating, but I don't feel guilty because that's what camping is for right?

We had a great summer and now it's already time to start thinking about the holiday's. Time goes by so quickly, I need to remember to stop and notice all the wonderful things and people who surround me.

Happy Birthday!!

So, I am ridiculously far behind on my blogging duties. I have excuses, but what it really comes down to is, the farther I get behind the less I want to attempt to catch up. I've decided that it's now or never because there are going to be a lot of blog-worthy events happening in the next little while so here goes...

Milena, Landon and Lauren have all had birthdays!!! Milena turned 3 on June 18th and her birthday was extra special this year because she got to share it with her Grandma Ginn who's birthday is the same day.
Grandma took us to McDonald's to celebrate and of course the kids had a wonderful time.
There was this crazy dude there dressed as an alien, so we told Milli he was there for her birthday which she thought was awesome, she wouldn't go anywhere near him, but she told everyone all about it afterwards.

Milli also got to have a party with the Lemke family.

She had been asking for a Mickey Mouse cake for months so, since I am such an awesome mom, I made one for her :)

Landon turned 6 on July 13th. He was so excited to have all his friends over. I was a little worried about Sage because she was going to be the only girl. So I made sure to get some "girl" prizes for BINGO, but when she won, she asked me if she had to have a girl prize and when I said no, she picked out one of the race cars which is awesome, I guess I didn't need to worry at all.

Landon loves Transformers so I drew Optimus Prime on his cake which he thought was the greatest thing ever. Hopefully it will be this easy to make him happy when he's 16.

Lauren turned 2 on Oct. 16th and I am having a hard time with her growing up so fast. She is supposed to stay a baby forever! We had a little family party and she had a blast. What could be better than eating lots of cake and getting lots of presents?

So, this is the first installment of my catch-up attempt. Hopefully there will be more coming soon, but I know myself too well so we'll just have to wait and see :)
