You still got it babe!

Dean's birthday was a happy one. We started at the pool and ended with strawberry shortcake with some great friends at our house. So much fun. We love you and hope your birthday was great.

REDD visit

The sprinklers came on and they couldn't resist running through them.
Dean's brother Steve and family came to Salt Lake for a visit. It was so good to see them. We really miss them and are sad they live so far away. We missed you Laurie.

More 4th of July fun..

We spent the 4th of July with our awesome neighborhood friends. I feel so blessed to live in this neighborhood surrounded by all these good people. When we get together there is always good food, laughs and always fun. Thanks James and Jodi for the great party.

Kendyl's homecoming

I don't know who was more excited, us or her but either way, she is finally home. Kendyl had a great time in Idaho at ODP camp. She did a great job, learned a lot and is excited for next year already. Maybe by then we will be ready for her to leave again. Right now it is so good to have her home. We missed her.

4th of July

This year we started celebrating the 4th of July early. Uncle Rob got Real tickets from his work and invited us to come with them. The really awesome part was after the game, we got to go out on the field and watch the fireworks. We all had a great time. I think Real won, and the fireworks were incredible. The only thing that would have made it better was if Kendyl could have been with us. Thanks Rob for inviting us. It was great!


I can't believe summer is almost over and I haven't blogged yet.... That will tell you how much fun we have been having. Our summer has consisted of three S's...sun, swimming and soccer. We have enjoyed the pool so much this year. The kids have turned in to little Indians and fish like always. They are all such great swimmers and have learned some really neat tricks. Jake loves to play football with Dean and the other big boys. Addy loves to do "cannonballs." Kendyl loves to take all the little babies for a swim. Mommy loves to laugh with her friends and catch some rays. I can't think of a better way to spend the summer!
