Holy Cow, my Breaking Dawn ticker says ONLY ONE DAY LEFT. I’m so excited/nervous that I can barely breathe. Last night (already) I couldn’t sleep because I kept thinking about it and worrying about what would happen! Oh my heck, I love vampires.

Lake Mead

This past week we packed up the car and headed out for one of our FAVORITE places…THE LAKE! My aunt has a house boat down on Lake Mead in Nevada so we went down and stayed for 4 days. We had most of my family plus my cousins so we packed all 14 of us on there and just had sooo much fun! (Kaitlyn stayed with Grandma and Grandpa, we didn’t want her falling in the lake!) We got out the wakeboard a few times but for the most part we surfed behind the boat, it’s our new favorite activity. When we weren’t on the water us girls spent quality time reading our Twilight books and the boys played the Wii. It was a relaxing and super fun trip!

Summer Days at the Pool

We have a fish on our hands! This girl LOVES the pool! She loves to play on the steps and jump off the side into dad's arms. She even likes to be dunked!

Kaitlyn's sunscreen mohawk!

I also took Kaitlyn up to a Splash Park, she loved it! If you take out all the big kids who were almost running her over the whole time, this is a great activity for these HOT desert days.

Last night we got to attend the wedding dinner of our good friend Curtis Newman. The dinner was at the Millcreek Inn and it was BEAUTIFUL!!! We just love Curt’s new wife Natalie and are so excited for the two of them!

The Great Outdoors

So we had another fun camping trip this weekend. This one was a little more rustic than our last campout…we had no running water and our bathroom was the woods. Brian and I both love camping though so we didn’t mind. We headed up with our friends, the Edward’s, up near Strawberry Reservoir. It was so beautiful. Kaitlyn got VERY dirty playing in the dirt the whole time but she had so much fun being outside. I didn’t get nearly as many pictures as I hoped because our camera broke half way through, but here is a glimpse at our outdoor weekend.

A Very FUN 4th of July!

We had a GREAT 4th of July weekend. We stared the night before by attending the Riverton Parade. It was so fun because Kaitlyn had so much fun (probably due mostly to all the candy!) Our friend Preston’s parents live right on the parade route so we had primo seats. We had a little bbq to top off the night. It was a blast.

Kaitlyn and her friend Anna
Abbey was making sure all the kids picked up enough candy.....and beleive me it was more than enough!
I love bagpipes

On the 4th we went to Brian’s grandma’s house and had another little bbq. Then we met up with my fam and headed over to the Riverton fireworks. Can I just say that I was MIGHTY impressed with the firework show Riverton City put on, it was amazing. Kaitlyn enjoyed watching it on kept covering her eyes instead of her ears! To end the night we headed back to our place and did some fireworks of our own in the circle. It was such a fun 4th of July!

Cute Cousins!

Allyx spent a good portion of the evening making her wand

Kaitlyn LOVES cotton candy

What 4th of July is complete without sparklers!
