Summertime!!!! 8/21/2010

My dad came to visit for a few days and we had a great time while he was here. I didn't pull out the camera as much as I wanted to but I got a few shots. We went swimming, fishing, and had a marshmallow roast.

The weekend after he left, Matt and I took the kids for a drive to Mesa Falls and Big Springs trout pond in Idaho. It was a full day drive but it was fun. We had lunch at a wonderful restaurant at Mac's Inn in Island Park. The kids were a little cranky when we got home, but after all is said and done...we would do it again.

Aunt Billie, Jin, & the kids... August 2010

We had a visit from my Aunt Billie, cousin Jinnefer, and her 3 kids. We had so much fun while they were here. Wendy and Russ brought the boys back from St. George for us after our trip to Texas, so they were able to be here for the visit as well. Parker and Robert are 5 months apart and Alicia and Cooper are 5 weeks apart. They played so good together. We decided to celebrate Brandon's bday (7/22) and Scotlyn's bday (8/27) together since we don't get to see each other that often. We had many campfires and roasted marshmallows both inside the house and outside the house, we spent Saturday at Reed's Dairy, rode a horse, milked a fake cow, ran a milk man obstacle race (Scotlyn won 1st place and a $20 gift card), had some yummy ice cream, and went roller skating. We had a great 3 days and were sad to have them leave.

We have had a great couple of weeks. First, we had my mom and some great friends from St. George come visit us: Deann, Jeff, Kitura, & Kambria Stratton. They were able to spend a fun filled week with us. We went to an air show, drove to Jackson, Wyoming, took a carriage ride and had lunch, went to the zoo, swam with the Staples family who also happened to stop by on their way to Ashton, and just had tons of fun.

The following weekend Matt had a trip to Wichita Falls, Texas come up with a stop over in St. George so the grandparents were happy to take the boys for a few days. We were also able to make a short stop in for Jen's Bday party to celebrate her 39th birthday (mostly for the ice cream cake). While in Texas we drove to Oklahoma so Scotlyn could add that to her states she's traveled this summer; which now totals 11. We went bowling, went to a water park, shopped, and ate a lot of frozen yogurt & sushi.
