Fun at the Pool

We played at the Nephi pool twice this week. It was the perfect solution to a hot day. One day Jeff joined us and the kids had a blast.

Fun at the Movies

Big Man asked if we could go see Despicable Me 2. Little Princess was the only other one who wanted to go, so it was just the three of us. It's fun to mix it up sometimes. They were really good and we LOVED the movie. The theater had lots of fun photo ops.

Ute Stampede and Mini Drill Camp

Little Princess needed something fun 'just for her' this summer so I signed her up for a mini drill camp that the high school drill team puts on. It was 3 days of instruction and then they got to be on the float in the Ute Stampede Parade. She absolutely loved it.
On the last day of instruction they performed what they learned for the parents.

I couldn't get her to look at me while I was taking pictures.

Before the rodeo we went to the carnival.  It was pouring rain, but the kids still had fun.

Our official hat holder

This little girl was pretty excited to go on the rides this year.  She had a blast.

I will have to add pictures of the rodeo in another post.  They are on Jeff's phone.  Finally, this is getting ready for the parade.  Little Princess looked adorable with her hair all curled.

We ordered a small shirt but somehow got a medium. We made it work though.

Last year it rained during the parade so it was cut kind of short.  This year it didn't rain but it was HOT.  Little Princess looked a little bored on the 'float', but she had a good time.

The Mover didn't love the parade as much as the boys, but she did enjoy eating all the candy.

Summer is flying by...

My camera is accumulating a lot of photos.  We've been busy the last few weeks.  The kid had swim lessons.  I signed up The Mover.  She did great the first day but then she got sick and wouldn't go for the rest of the session.  We'll try again next time.

I bribed the kids that they could play at the splash pad by Costco if we could go shopping.  I only got the girls to cooperate.  When we got there, I realized I'd forgotten The Mover's swimsuit.  Oh well, she still had fun.

Oh the many uses of a laundry basket. 

Grandma Susie's work hosted a night at the Owlz baseball game.  It was HOT, but we had a fun time.

All Big Man wanted at the game was a bag of popcorn. 

Our Ice cream helmets didn't quite hit the spot on a hot night at the park.  The kids still enjoyed them though.

Nap time has been hard this summer.  It's right in the middle of our day and usually disrupts whatever we're doing.  On this particular day, I couldn't get everyone out of her room so she could take a nap.

We spent the 4th of July at the Nephi Park.  Our stake puts on a big carnival at the park with lots of games, bounce houses, food, and fun.  We hung out there in the morning until it got too hot. 

Lots of fun prizes and toys to play with.

That night we watched the fireworks up above Nephi.  We got a good spot up on the hill and had a great time.
