Bentley playing football with the big boys, ready to catch!
Everyone up on the cliff waiting their turn to jump...some were more nervous than others!
Ty, Josh, and Zach were able to get all the little kids to try something new(or force them to try!) they all did surfing (even Bentley and Zakrie) and some did skiing. We were all wondering how Ty was getting the boys to do so much until we learned that he was bribing them with expensive gifts like Nintendo DS's or an Xbox 360 if they could stay up for so long...miles is still waiting for his Xbox 360 Ty!
the kids and I with Grandma Crook at a family reunion
It was so perfect that we got to Utah in time for Mclaren's blessing, Josh gave her a beautiful blessing and I am so glad we were able to be there for her special day.
24th of July at This is the Place Monumentwe had a memorable 24th of July this year, since my kids don't really have many chances to visit places like this living in Florida, I really wanted them to go learn more about the pioneers and their heritage, lucky for us my parents were happy to come, even though they have probably seen it a hundred times!
bailee and miles stamping leather
Bailee standing in front of the Pack home, which is pretty cool since we are descendants of him(Sean's mother's maiden name is Pack and John Pack is her great, great grandfather( i think thats right?)
trying out the handcarts...our kids have it so easy!
I think it was one of the hottest days in Utah, but my parents were so nice to brave the heat and come do all the activities with the kids.
We were also able to go to Temple Square this summer and then we watched a movie at the visitor's center.
the kids and Nana playing baseball in the backyard
One day we took the kids up to Snowbird, hoping to ride the tram, but it was closed due to weather, so we did other stuff up in the mountains. The kids were shocked to feel the freezing cold water in the river!
We rode the lift up the mountain and took the small version of the alpine slide back down, it was fun!
Bailee waiting to go down the slide, Miles and I were on another sled together, which was a big mistake because we were way to heavy and we went soo slow!
