Fun With Friends

While we were up in Utah for the fourth of July I was able to meet up with my besties for some swimming and a BBQ. Me, Britania, and Krista were all pregnant with boys at the same time and had them within a month of each other. It's always so busy but we made it a priority to get together. The boys are now two and it's the first time we have gotten them all together at the same time. It's so funny to see all of their different personalities. We had a great time and I can't wait to do it again.

My Nieces and Nephew were able to meet us at the swimming pool in Manti as well. Trey had a lot of fun with his cousins.

Aiden could not get enough of the water slide...I wish I had a waterproof video camera with me when I was going down the slide with him. He laughed so hard all the way down. It was so cute.

 This is a little blurry but I had to post it...We had just gotten off the water slide with them and they wanted to go on it again and again. They were a little upset that we were walking away from it..LOL

 Here's a pic of me and my boys later that night.  We were all tired and a little sunburnt

Braces are off!

This summer has been flying by...I can't believe it's the end of July already...We have all been so busy and I feel like we have already done quite a bit this summer...One cool thing for Trey this summer is that he got his braces off..Yay! Phase one anyway...He now wears a retainer and then more than likely he will get a second phase of braces...His teeth are looking pretty awesome already...This first phase was basically to make space for permanent teeth to come in the back and he also had a gap between his front teeth that has completely disappeared thanks to braces:) A big thanks to my hubby for paying for the new car in Trey's mouth...haha...ok...maybe it didn't cost that much but close!

Doesn't he look so handsome!

Fun in St. George

Daddy had to work up in St. George in June so me and the boys decided to go with.  We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot near Target. My sister and my parents were able to come down and go out to dinner with us one night and my sis also came back down with her kids to go swimming with us.  We had a great time.  The Hotel had an indoor pool and an outdoor pool and the kids couldn't get enough of it.

Aiden was laughing so hard at his big brother

He decided he would try it too

Taking a little break....He was sooooo tired

4th Of July

We had a lot of fun on the 4th of July this year...We went up to Utah for ten days and had a blast spending time with family and friends...The morning of the fourth we took the kids and went to the parade over in Richfield...Afterwards we headed to the park for the festivities...After walking through the crowded park for 20 minutes we decided to head back to Salina...But not before we won some little frogs at the frog booth:)Once we got back to Salina we headed up to my Grandpas for a BBQ with all my mom's side of the family. We visited and had lunch and then off we went to the Salina parade...The weather was perfect this year...There were a few raindrops throughout the day which made it nice...

My niece trying to make a heart for me
More sparkler fun

After the parade me and my brother and sister decided to take our kids to the Rodeo this year...I am super bummed I din't take my camera there:( Those of you that are not from a small town in Utah would have loved seeing what it's all about...We got our kids, some blankets, drinks and treats and headed up the rocky hillside to get a place on the side of the mountain...Oh I so wish Jason would have been able to come with us this year...My friends and their kids joined us on the hillside as well and we visited until the rodeo was over with...Once the rodeo was over with it was time for the firemen to let off the fireworks right above us all...It was a lot of fun taking the kids to experience that...Aiden didn't know what to think of the fireworks...They were loud and he still managed to fall asleep through half of them..We had a long fun day:)
