Summer Fun!!!

It's been forever since I have posted so stand back here it all comes!!!!

To start off we have been doing a ton of stuff this summer with our fun cousin Ruby and Aunt Brittany and our good friends Andria and her daughter Wrigley. Andrew is a lady's man running around with all of these girls. Non the less we have a great time.

We started off the summer by heading to Thanksgiving Point Farm Country. We love that place because it's cheap and fun and a good 1/2 day activity to get some naps in. Our favorite parts were the pony rides and the wagon ride. We'll hit it again come August when they do their $2 Tuesdays!!

We also celebrated Birthday's this month for both Brooklyn and Andrew! My babies aren't babies anymore. Grandma Wachter made Andrew the COOLEST blanket. He is in love with Captain America and the Avengars. So she crocheted a Captain America Shield blanket. Sorry the picture isn't great and doesn't do it justice. Andrew turned 5 and will start kindergarten this fall. And, Brooklyn turned 3 and will soon be starting pre-school. It's been so fun watching them grow up and become "big" kids. And Grandma always throws a great party for every family member.

Then over Father's Day Weekend, we headed to Moab for the annual softball trip. This is the first time I have been in 4 years. It was a ton of fun even if it was a sweltering sea of heat. Us cool working mom's took crafts for the kids to do while we sat at the ball park all day. I would have to say we were a huge hit! We made foam pictures and visors. Painted treasure boxes. Made binoculars out of toilet paper rolls. And, face painted. I don't know who was having more fun the kids or the mom's!

More Birthday Celebrations continued on the Friday in between the kids birthday's. I got them each a bicycle thinking it would be a huge hit and they would be jumping up and down with excitement. Boy was I wrong. They both looked at them like "hmm, what do we do with these." So disappointing for me but oh well. We are still working on our pedaling skills and building the strength in our legs to actually go somewhere.
To finish out the month of June, we celebrated at Strawberry Day's. The Pleasant Grove City celebration. The kids go to Aunt Cathy's to watch the parade, this year with Grandma and cousin Jake while I ride in the parade with the Vikettes. Afterwards, they walked over to the carnival to have the staple meal of Strawberries and Cream and a few carni rides. They had a great time.

All in all, June has been a great month! Here's to July!!
