August is busy

My Mom and sister came to visit in the beginning of August, it was a lot of fun to have them here, but I didn't take as many pictures as I should have so here's what I got.

Here we are on the Bountiful Temple grounds on Sunday.

The boys sporting their newly saved heads

Here we are again cute

After the temple we went to Mueller park which is a little trail by our house

Pretty scenery, but don't like the way I'm standing

We also made it to Temple Square but this was the only picture I got

Hunter was trying to escape

Every second Sunday we have dinner with Dave's family, we also celebrate the birthdays for the month, here are some of Hunter and Logan's favorites

Optimus Prime

Bumble bee jammies

Along with having Hunter and Logan's birthdays 8 days apart Logan also started Kindergarten on the 22nd. He was so excited and was definitely ready to go.

Here he is transformer backpack and all. He had a transformer birthday party as well, but that will have to be a post all of it's own.

Hunty turns One!

For Hunter's birthday we hiked up to Lake Mary which is up by Brighton ski resort. Dave's dad, brother and his two daughter's joined us. We got to the top of the trail at 11 am and I think it's 1-1 12 miles to the top.

Here we are just starting out

Makay, Logan, and Olivia
It didn't take long before the kiddos needed to stop and have some treats

Logan and Olivia had a good time hiking together, when getting ready for this picture Olivia said "Logan come sit by me like were married", ha ha

Olivia, Steve, and Jacey

Logan and Grandpa taking a break

We finally got to the top and Hunter was excited to get into the dirt.

Grandpa in front of Lake Mary, it was really pretty and a bit cooler up there then in the Valley.

Makay took his shoes off and dipped his feet in the water

Getting ready to head back down and Logan climbed up on this rock and yelled "I'm the king of the world".

Heading down, Makay made it half way up, he had no interest in walking down.

Logan and Olivia leading the way

Logan was still in good spirits toward the end

Makay had enough and was down for the count

Hunter was out as well, and I was also happy to see the bottom, my traps were killing me.

St. George

On the weekend on July 30th we went down to St. George for our friend Joe's wedding, we were excited to get out of town and spend some much needed QTT (quality time together).

Here's Makay counting while him and Logan played hide-n-seek

Being able to stand up and look at himself in the mirror was Hunter's favorite part.

Logan feel asleep keeping Hunter company, ahh brotherly love

We had to be to the temple by 9:00 am, the ceremony was lovely.
By the time we got out and were waiting for them it was already 95 degrees!

My cute family

Trying to get all the boys to look, yeah good luck.

The cute couple...Mr. & Mrs. Smith

After the temple we went back to the hotel to cool off and rest, then headed off to the luncheon

Here's how Makay spent the luncheon, we tried and tried to wake him up, but no luck.

Hunter spent his luncheon enjoying anything we would give him

After the luncheon it was pool time! We love the water and spent a good amount of time there.

Dave and the boys

Hunty and I

This is what you get when you tell Makay to smile

Best belly-flop picture ever!

I'm doing a cannonball, but Dave didn't quite get the tuck

Logan showing off his cannonball skills

Finally a picture where they are all looking, but not smiling

I really enjoyed the live mariachi band

Not too much cake smearing

The night ended with dancing, the brothers are enjoying the money dance.

When we left on Sunday we decided to take the scenic route home, we went through Cedar City to Panguitch

Here are my cute kids huddled in the car, they did really well on both drives and handling the heat.

I was a lot of fun to get out of town and to be there to enjoy Joe and Moni's day.

Summer Fun

We have been very busy this summer, but have also had a chance to have some fun. The boys have enjoyed playing on their slip-n-slide.

Hunty and Makay had some fun of their own while Logan was at a friends

They just opened a splash pad (which is basically just lots of fountains shooting from the ground) right by our house, it also has a park connected to it so you can go back and forth from park to water.


Makay and his cousin Austin

Hunter doesn't seem afraid of anything yet, he went straight for the fountains and sat right next to it while it sprayed him.

Hunty love the water, he couldn't get enough

Hunter's bleeding feet after all that crawling on the cement

Not quite walking yet, but already being mischievous

This summer Logan and Makay got to do two sessions of summer camp, they went three days a week for an hour. It was nice to break up the day and good for them to get out and do something different every time. I forgot my camera for the first session, but they both did sports of all sorts which was a lot of fun. They were introduced to mainstream sports, and also played different games. They weren't in the same class which was really good for Makay to do something on his own.

Here's Makay in his second session class which was art. I wasn't sure if he would like it, but his teacher's were so cute and he really had a great time!

Getting ready to start

The finished product, nice glasses

Logan was supposed to do the art class, but didn't want to on the first day so they let him switch to the sports one again.

Relay Races

Playing dodge ball

As much fun as summer camp has been I'm glad it over with, it sometimes made it hard to schedule around, but the kids love I'm sure we will do it every year.

I look forward to August being a little more low key and getting ready for school to start, Logan off to kindergarten and Makay to preschool. It's going to be a little weird to only have Hunty to run my errands with, but I'm sure I'll manage.
