June

How do the months pass so fast?  I am going to have a newborn before I know it.  Especially with how infrequently I’ve been blogging!  We had a pretty busy June.  Dan and Jack went to Father and Sons camp out.  Ryan, Kara and family were in town for a short weekend.  Then we celebrated Dan’s birthday, Father’s Day, Brooke’s birthday, Dan’s birthday again and then Avery’s birthday.  We got to meet our baby on ultrasound and the babe looks perfect and remains a mystery to us which is fun!  Plus we were knee deep in swim lessons and potty training so that made the days go quickly too.  And that carried us to the end of the month pretty much!  Good times over here.

Sophs had some girl only play dates while Jack was at swimming.  We love these friends.

Jack thought he was hysterical when he put on Daddy’s shirt one day.  And I thought it was hysterical because Arrested Development is beyond funny.

We had a week straight of over 100 degree temperatures and recorded the hottest ever June day.  We had to beat the heat somehow and a $5 slip and slide was the answer.  Although Sophs continues her timid streak and wouldn’t go down the slide without Daddy.  I opted to be photographer since I can’t really run and land on my belly at this point.

We went hiking with a group from our ward to Donut Falls last Monday.  Look at all those cute kids that were such troopers!  I really need to invest in some shoes for Sophs in this size since my kids seem to love hiking and I am always up for a little exercise.  It was a beautiful and easy hike and my kids loved dipping their toes in the water.

As previously mentioned, this lady is potty trained.  It was our second attempt and she embraced it fully.  She occasionally will still have an accident (about once every 10 days) but other than that she is perfect.  We are working on night time now.  But I can’t believe that I get to enjoy a 4 month break from diapers.  It’s been almost 5 years straight of changing bums so I will take it!

  1. That picture of Jack in the Bluth’s Bananas shirt kills me! Love that kid. Sophs looks all sassy in those sunglasses, just when I think she can’t get any cuter.

  2. Yay for the potty training! Way to go Sophs and great work Mommy! The kiddos are cute, as always… so big, so fast. Looks like fun times – way to beat the heat. I don’t think I would survive in Utah! Oh, I’m so excited for the new little baby 🙂 🙂

  3. That slip n slide looks super fun! I wonder when I am ever going to get my white body outside in the sun! Ha! June did pass so fast! It will be Fall before we even know it! Good job Sophs on using the potty! Maybe your cousin Isaac will think that’s fun someday! 🙂

  4. Oh, I thought maybe Jack had adopted the “wearing of the gray” tradition. It made me think of my boys when I saw him in that big shirt. Dan’s such an awesome dad to ride the slip-n-slide. Super Duper Sohpie Girl! Only four more months to wait for that new baby. Time is flying by.

  5. Congrats on the potty training. We also got that hurdle over with a couple weeks ago. So jealous about the slip n slide! Getting through this summer with no hose is going to be tricky. Your kids are changing so much! I sure miss you all!
