Visitors and Moses Lake Water Park

Darren, Nathan, and Dax
Last week my brother and his family stopped by to stay the night on there way to Camp Zion.  It was so fun to see them and have 6 hyper boys in our home.  We wish they could have stayed longer but glad they stopped by.
Kristy (sister-in-law), me, and Shaun (brother)

Sorry I look so crazy I have pancake batter all over my tummy. 
The thing is just in the way these days.

Nathan at the water park I think he had just as much fun chasing the seagulls as playing in the water.
Running through the splash area, he was having so much fun.
Trying to step on the water and stop it from shooting at him. 
We had such a good time and definitely want to go back again.

Hogle Zoo

At the beginning of July we went to Salt Lake City for a doctor appointment. We normally leave our parents house in the morning and go down and back in one day. This time we decided to go down stay the night and then go to Hogle Zoo. I am so glad that we did, we had so much fun and can't wait to go again. Here are some pictures of our fun trip.

Ultrasound Pictures

So I went in for another ultrasound today and this time we got some really good 3D pictures.  Baby is still small so again in 4 weeks we go in and see the fetal weight.  I will be at 36 weeks so hopefully it continues to grow.  Moved from the 17% to the 3% for femur length so we will see.
What a precious little baby!!!!
This one is a little harder to see but the baby is sucking its thumb. 
You can see the little finger to the side of the nose.

Hope you enjoy!!!!!

Memorial Day & 4th of July

Since we were down in Idaho during Memorial Day we were lucky to spend it with some of Rich's family camping.  Thanks to his parents for letting us stay in there camper with them.  The pictures from Memorial Day are at the bottom of the post.  I really don't want to drag them to the top.
Then on the 4th of July weekend we went up for the day with my family camping in Bear Gulch. Then on the 5th of July we spent time with Rich's family at his sisters house in Grant.  It is so fun being around family and we wish that we were closer to spend the time with them.
Joni helping Amber with the watermelon, it looks a little heavy for her.
Nathan, Livy, and Josey waving at the camera.  They all love their Aunt Josey.
Nathan playing catch with Daddy and Connor.  I love this picture because he was so happy he started jumping up and down.  I caught it perfect with him off the ground.
Nathan's throwing arm, yes that is his left arm.  I think he is going to be ambidextrous like his dad.
Nathan riding the roping dummy.  He thought it was his cow, not a bull but a cow.
Beautiful pictures of Kilgore, I love this place I wish I could live there.
Sun set coming home from Bear Gulch.  I am pretty impressed this was taken outside the wide going 60 mph.
The guys playing ultimate Frisbee at Rich's sister's house. 
Lets just say that the younger kids beat the old men.  I think they all realized they aren't young bucks anymore.
This is of Nathan dancing.  This is his new little jive and I love it.

Camping up at Stoddard with Rich's family during Memorial Weekend.
I love these pictures of Nathan and his "Brainy".
Nathan and Bo during the weekend Nathan was attached to Bodie.  This is Nathan's new cheese smile as well.  For some reason he thinks he needs to cover his eyes.
Rich and Kylie.  Oh if you all new how much these to are like each other.  Let's just say we laughed all weekend long.
Nathan and Bo eating marshmallow's.

And again Nathan and Bo.

April's Girls Trip

So every year I get the great pleasure to spend 4 days with Rich's sisters and mom.  We go shopping all weekend long with no kids or husbands.  Let's just say I look forward to this every year, and since we lived in Hawaii I missed out on it for 3 years.  This year we went to Ogden and staid in a condo which is so much better than the hotels we have been staying in, more room and more bathrooms.

This was just after the first day.
All of us wish our loot, Jenny is taking the picture. 
In order to get us all we had to stand on the counter. 
Jenny and mom's corn dog.

Carrie and Megan I have way cute sister-in-laws.

Thanks to all our husbands who take the kids every year and let us have our time to shop, shop, shop.  But most of all to just laugh and be girls.
