Gwenfest 2009 pt.2 / seven peaks

On this fun day we took the trip down south to Seven Peaks. Again, we had more fun that we deserved. The kids look forward to this all year and it's become the tradition to wait until Paige and Seth get here. Lauren's very brave and will go on pretty much anything, Taylor.. well he's a little brave and Josh, not so much. He has a good time on the lazy river, as you can see :) The sun's brutal and we all came home with some pink somewhere but it's so worth it!

Gwenfest 2009 pt.1

My sister Gwen has been in town from So. Cal this past week. That pretty much means we spend every waking hour doing something with all the cousins. It's fun and exhausting!

On this day we went to Jump on It. I couldn't really get any good pictures of moving targets, but it's pretty much a big warehouse with trampolines everywhere. It's so good to wear them out.

After that we went down to the park and floated in the little creek (or crick if your from Utah County). The kids had a great time and it reminded me of the times we used to float in the irrigation water when we were kids - the things you do for fun while living out in the country :)

4th of July

We had a fun 4th of July weekend. Well, most of us did. Lauren spent the day home feeling crummy, poor thing. We've kind of had a 4th of July week. Last weekend we went to my parents house to watch the Cedar Hills fireworks. They were great and it was fun to just sit on the lawn and watch.
Friday we did fireworks in our front yard and then went to the neighborhood extravaganza. There's nothing like lots of boys (dad's included) running around with lighters and fireworks.
On the 4th we were invited to walk with Mayor Dolan in the Sandy City Parade. Lauren was so bummed to miss it, but the boys had a great time throwing candy and the day was capped off with more neighborhood fireworks.
We hope you all had a wonderful 4th and thanks to all those who make it possible for us to even have a day to celebrate our freedom!

Family Fun Day

I'm a little behind on my blog. Last month we had our neighborhood family fun day. The kids REALLY look forward to it. Eveything is free. It starts with a 5k run (which I did) and then a kids parade. Parley paraded with the kids while I took pictures. Then the fun really begins. They have multiple bounce houses, face painting, dodge ball, dunking booths, snow cones and water slides. What more could a kid ask for. The weather was a little iffy, but it waited to rain until we were packing up. We can hardly wait for next year.
