We spent a day at Lagoon in Early August, it was a fun day. Landon won a huge dog and snake playing a water gun game and Jackson and Ayden won Jazz bears shooting hoops!! I think the games were the highlight of the day *LOL* Landon had fun riding all the kiddie rides over and over while Ryan took Jackson and Ayden on all the big rides! It was a fun summer day :)

a boy and his bike

Landon got a new bike and has been practicing riding it without training wheels! He is a little timid about tipping over but I think he'll be riding it on his own before summers over :) Way to go Landon!!

Our new lawn boy!!

Jackson started mowing the lawn a couple of weeks ago to earn some extra money. He does a really good job and says he'll mow twice a week til the snow flies!!

King of the World!!
Priceless SMILE!!
Head over Heels!!

The end of July we spent the day up at Snowbird. We rode the tram up to Kings Peak and hiked down, it was awesome. At the top you could see the valley and it was so high up that it made me sick. I was constantly nervous telling the boys to stay away from the edge, I hate being afraid of heights :( We also went on the alpine slide, did the bungee trampoline (which everyone loved), the mechanical bull and the ropes course. Ryan and Jackson did the zip line, it was so much fun. Ryan and Jackson want to go back and ride the digger dirt scooters down the mountain but I think they'll have to wait until Jackson's a little older ;) It was a perfect day and we are so lucky to live so close to the beautiful Wasatch Mountains.

Skate Park

The boys have had so much fun taking their bikes and scooters to the skate park this summer! They have gotten really comfortable with the jumps and skating the bowl :) It quickly became one of their favorite things to do!! Way to go boys!!


We have had so much fun watching our beautiful sunflowers grow from tiny seeds this summer! Some of them are over 9 feet tall and there are so many different colors!! We love watching all the butterflies, bumblebees and humming birds visit them each day. It's always brings a smile to your face when you see them :) we love sunflowers!!

Gaffigan, Sonic & Swimmy

Meet the newest members of our family.... Gaffigan, Sonic and Swimmy. Bet you can tell who's who *lol* Jackson named his fish Gaffigan because he LOVES Jim Gaffigan and his fish is a white pale albino goldfish, we all laughed when he named him :) Ayden's black fin tipped gold fish is named Swimmy and Landon's is Sonic. The night we got the fish I made salmon for dinner and guess what.... none of the boys would eat. They said that now that they have fish for pet's they didn't want to eat fish *LOL* I guess going fishing's out now too!

before & after

Ayden has been growing out his hair this summer but yesterday he said "it was just to sweaty" so he went and got a haircut! I especially like the blue gel but is it just me or does he look older now?? What a handsome boy!!
