Catching Up

I feel so behind on this blog!  So here are a collection of pictures from July.

My parents got the kids this water table for their birthdays.  We opened it early so we could enjoy it this summer.  This is the first time they played with it.  It didn’t take long for them to start pouring in dirt, grass and rocks which is now the norm despite my requests to keep the water clean.  They like to make “soup” and stir it with the baseball bat.  Oh well…they still love it.

Sophie and her friends, Aubrey and Maya.  These little girls are so cute together.  Me and the other moms have taken turns watching the little girls while their older siblings were all in the same swimming class together.  They loved having free reign of the toys without their older siblings to boss them around!  They are so chatty together.  It is pretty cute.  Now Sophs asks almost daily “Where Au-bee and Maya?”

We have enjoyed some fun outings lately.  Dan finally got to meet us at the soon and see the new Rocky Shores area.  The polar bear was super active that night and it was so fun.  He came right up the glass and looked at the kids right before pushing off the wall and diving back into the water.

We also went to Draper Days on the last night mostly just to watch the fireworks.  But the fire department was there letting kids spray their hose.  Jack was in pure heaven.  The fireworks did not start until 10:30 pm which is super late for our kids.  Sophie was on the verge of being terrified.  And by the end Jack was getting pretty restless.  But he wasn’t scared which made me glad cause I love firework shows.

And lastly, my college roommate JooLin came into town for a short weekend visit.  We went down to Provo one afternoon and went to Bridal Veil Falls.  It was super lovely and Jack loved playing the freezing water.  We went to the Bookstore and Sophs was obsessed with these bracelets.  She loves a chance to be girlie!  It was so fun to spend time with Joo even though we didn’t do much.
