Summertime Happenings

Here are some of the things that we have been doing for the past few weeks. And yes, I said SOME of...we had a very busy month of July.

Rockband with Aunt Sis and TJ

Riggles "BIG" project this summer is painting the front steps. 4 Weeks later and it's still not done...Hmmmm does this surprise me ????

Then my mom flew up and we went to the beach. The tide was in so we didn't get to walk out along the sand bar at Penrose Point but we still took a lot of pics and played in the sun.

Me, my mom and the kids headed to Utah. Of course we stopped to eat and even let the kids eat ice cream. My moms idea. I'm a mean mom and would've said NO to ice cream. That's just how I roll.

Sam got her hair cut.

After we reached Logan, Utah, we took a trip a bit more south and visited Temple Square in Salt Lake City. It was my first time in the old Tabernacle and the spirit there was AMAZING!!! I'm glad I took the chance to let my kids visit. Next time I think we will do it again and visit the sites we didn't get a chance to see.

We also spent time with my sisters. ( I have 5) The kids swam in the pool at Aunt La La's house and Ben E loved playing in the sandbox.

We stayed the night at Aunt Jay's beautiful, new house. (which is a block away from Aunt La La's house) and the next morning we went to Weston for the Pioneer day festivities. Normally they kick butt. That is why I wanted to do it again this year..but was very very sad this year..The parade was short, the chicken/pig/rabbit chase was nada and the airplane candy drop was pathetic. Very disappointed in Weston city and their planning.

Most of our nights were spent and Aunt Loris new house. We got to spend a ton of time with my stinkin' cute nephews who are now teenagers and my adorable niece Sha Lynn. Thanks for letting us chill at your pad Lo Lo!

My mom is moving out of her place. So us girls helped her go through boxes and things. We reminisced over many things. This is me with an old ballet/tap costume of mine. Hot stuff huh?

We all put our names in a hat to draw for this puzzle. A very fond childhood memory for all. Congrats to my lil' sis Jobee Kanobee who won!! I will try and find my own on Ebay. :(

Me and my sis Les also went and had are feet soaked and zoned. It was amazingly awesome. I recommend it to anyone. Even if you hate people touching, looking or even coming near your feet, as I do, it was easy to get over once it started.

Riggles flew in later and after we picked him up from the airport we took him to get his feet zoned too.

Then we went to Clifton, Idaho's Twin Lakes and went camping and played in the water.

I have quite the little camper here helping his dad with fire pits.

Ben found part of a fire pit hole and made him self comfortable.

Our little family is done traveling for the summer. Probably cause we are out of money now hehe. But hopefully we can save up and head south again for Thanksgiving.
Now to think about school starting and the supplies that need to be bought....ugh!
