August Randoms

This baby!  She is growing up so much.  She had her first ear infection in August which was sad.  While she was so stuffy she started sticking out her tongue in the funniest way.  We tried to capture it but weren’t super successful.  She is done with naps at church.  The last time I tried she grabbed the car seat cover and pulled it down to peak out.  She is besties with Cora.  Although Cora is way more mobile than her and loves to come and steal her binkie out of her mouth.  Ha!  She still is not crawling.  She reaches so far from a sitting position and rocks back and forth but still won’t get on her knees.  She’s such a funny girl.

This boy is so excited to be Spiderman for Halloween.  Thank you Costco for putting out your costumes in August.  Also one day he came into my room fully dressed in snow gear.  I am personally not ready for that yet!

My mom was in town for a week in August.  We went to the gardens at Thanksgiving Point and enjoyed a nice stroll.  Cute cousins!

All Sophie has wanted since Annie was born was to match her.  I finally found matching dresses and she was SO excited.  Such cute sisters!

Matching chalk drawings.  Love these little artists.

Another round of soccer is in the books.  Jack’s team was undefeated this season.  They were so fun to watch!  And Sophie scored in nearly every game.

This little buddy had his first cavity filled.  And he was awesome.  He never even flinched and just sat there calmly.  He really is the best kid ever.  I had one filled on the same day so we were numb faces together.

These 4 kids!  I love them so, so much.

First Day of School

Back to school!  Hooray!  We had such a fun summer that this day really came too fast.  Jack and Sophie were both kind of bummed.  But they came around after the first day when they saw their friends again.  Sophie is in second grade with Mrs. Schwanke and Jack is in fourth grade with Mrs. Andes.

Luke started school the first week of September.  He is going to preschool 3 days/week with Miss Barb.  He is in class with 2 of his friends from our neighborhood.  The first day he clinged to my leg and started to cry.  But since then he has been perfect and is loving it!  I cannot believe that he is one year from Kindergarten!

Summer Concerts

I was able to go to 2 concerts this summer.  It was like going back to my college days when I went to concerts all the time.  I sure do love live music.  Kerri and I went to the Soul 2 Soul tour with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.  It was amazing!  Then later in the month Dan and I went up to Park City and saw Gavin DeGraw.  It has been on my concert bucket list for a long time to see him live and it did not disappoint!  He was awesome.  We both had the best time!

Park City week

The first week of August we spent a week in Park City with Dan’s family.  The kids LOVE it.  We spend countless hours in the pool and down in the Kid’s Club.  The kids also love just being together, watching movies and playing games.  We enjoyed a full day on the Alpine Slides and Coaster.  The kids favorite part was the ropes course.  They could have done that over and over again.  We also got to celebrate Alyson’s 60th birthday with a delicious dinner at Baja Cantina.  It was a fun week away.

Megehees Visit

The week after we got back from the East Coast our best Draper friends flew in from Virginia.  We spent all week with them doing fun things…going to Cowabunga Bay, the splash pad, watching movies, shopping at the Outlets and an awesome girls night with all of us moms.  It is so fun to reunite with everyone when Alicia comes to town.  Our kids seem to never skip a beat which is awesome.  Plus we enjoyed a fun date night when Mark was in town.  I just love this family and feel so happy any time we get to be together.

And just a few random shots of the kids.  Annie’s first time in the jumper.  She liked it.  But since has decided it is the worst.  Jack got himself stuck in a baby swing when we were with our friends.  He was really stuck for awhile and I can’t imagine how funny it looked when I was pulling him out!  He is almost as big as I am.  We also had to stop and take a picture by this cool car so that we could send the picture to Tommy.  Jack and Tommy were constantly talking about cars when they were together.
