In my attempt to revive this little blog here is our summer in pictures.
We did some Scouting this summer. Fishing, Rain Gutter Regatta and 2 days at Camp Tracy.
Here we are on one of our many walks. Ian would ride his bike, Miles would ride the scooter and Mommy would push around the empty baby jogger after Wesley hopped out and decided to hoof it. So glad our days with the stroller and jogger are numbered…we are moving on to bigger and better things. I see bikes for all the boys in our future.
We went to the park…lots. The Train Park, the Rainbow Slide Park, Skye Park and my favorite Copperton Park. I read two books while watching the kids swing, climb, slide and build sand castles.
We used our zoo pass…many times. Miles likes the rhinos, Wessy is still all about the elephants, Ian likes the monkeys, I’m thinking the new polar bear is quite the charmer, Grandpa likes the tigers and Grandma just loves all the time to play with the grandkids.
On this day we went to the bird show. It was most impressive.
Inspired by the Summer Olympics the Noel Syncronized Swim Team was formed this summer. We spent the 4th of July inspired and amazed by their incredible talent and precision.
We all got our Slurpees on 7-11 day. Nothing like a good brain freeze to cool you off in July.
We had a blast at the Lee family reunion: Eating Fatboys (thank you Uncle Shawn), stuffing our bellies full of Cache Valley specialties (thank you Mom), playing kickball, laughing at everyone over the age of 30 playing kickball, watching the Mike Lee Family whoop us all in “Minute To Win It” games, and watching all the kids spin and spin on the merry go round thinking we were home free until Claire upchucked all over Mindy.
Love this litte guy. I started unwrapping this ice cream for him and he just about passed out from excitment…I do think I am now his favorite Aunt.
Syd and Olivia talking strategy in the outfield. I should post some of us “older” kids playing…with the Lee big feet and gracefulness we all looked AWESOME!
Went to Uncle Jake’s and rode the motorcycle. Jake seriously has the status of a superhero at our house because he owns a motorcycle and use to build rockets.
Participated in this little thing called Trek this summer. Dressed like a pioneer and took photos to document the journey for 4 days. It was an great experience both spiritually and creatively.
So this is how I spent most of my summer. Training for this little bike ride called LoToJa with my relay partner Nora. Lots of miles, a few centurys and the “big” race to round out the summer of riding.
We spent some time with our favorite people…the Mairs. Lots of running through the sprinklers, riding bikes, chasing chickens, building with legos, and learning to boondoggle.
Made myself some gluten free chocolate chip cookies…yes this was exciting enough to make it to the blog. And yes they were super yummy even James Mair gave them his stamp of approval. So of course I ate too many and still felt sick but not gluten fire gut sick; just sugar overdose sick which is much better.
Me and this little guy celebrated our birthday’s. While I turned 26… again he decided to move on from the adorable, charming two year old to the terrible, tantrum throwing three year old. Happy Birthday happy boy!
Wrapped the summer up with a night at Ruth’s. The best company (Mairs & the Thurbers), live entertainment (the bike riders going up and down Emmigration Canyon), great food, twinkle lights, and live music. The perfect end to a fabulous summer.
