Summer Wrap Up

We sent summer out on a high note this year with a 5 day trip to Boise, a morning at the zoo with friends, Boondocks mini golf and Chick Fil-A lunch and many afternoons spent with friends.  Despite kind of dreading the thought of summer where I knew I would have to break up sibling conflicts and battling screen time requests, I really thought it was so fun and enjoyed our carefree life quite a bit.  There were plenty of days that we had 4+ friends here at once and it was just good.  I was kind of sentimental to see it go!

Zoo Day

We love our buddies, the Ostler’s.  We don’t see them enough!  We were able to meet up at the zoo one morning.  It was totally fun and the kids had the best time together.  Wish we were still across the street neighbors!


We spent a long weekend in Boise in the middle of August.  Kerri and Porter joined us which made the drive so much faster for me!  Always nice to have someone to talk to and help pass out the treats from the front seat.  It was our last trip to Boise because both of my brothers moved away over Labor Day weekend.  I felt pretty sentimental about that one.  Jack was so sad about it too.  He just kept saying, ” I have loved coming here all these years.  I’m going to miss this house.”  Pretty cute.  But we are excited that everyone is now closer!  Deeds and Kimmy moved to Rexburg and the Cosby family moved to Pleasant Grove!  Hooray!  We didn’t do too much while we were there.  We helped Kara pack up a few thing and clean the house to get it ready to sale.  The kids played a lot.  A random thing happened this trip and Jack took two naps on two consecutive days!  One was on me and one was at church.  He slept through the whole Sacrament meeting.  It was the craziest thing!  I had to document!  We did manage to go to the Owhyee County Fair and Rodeo which was pretty awesome.  The kids enjoyed seeing the horses and eating funnel cakes.  I learned that I am super allergic to horses.  I was sneezing like crazy!  It was a great time!


Pictures from our morning trip to play mini-putt, a group of friends playing in our basement, my old BYU roommate Joo Lin came to visit with her family and Sophie thought it was so fun to have so many girls to play with!, going to Daddy’s work and enjoying the food trucks, sunny soccer selfie, and a picture of my favorite thing about the month of August in Utah–the wild sunflowers that pop up everywhere!  I love them!

  1. Pleasant Grove? Not California? Lucky you to have so much family nearby! You sure had a great summer and I’m really glad we got to be a little part of it. I sure miss seeing all your faces.

  2. It’s always hard to see summer go, however I’m more than happy to part ways this year…bring on some cooler temperatures for this preggo lady! Looks like you made the most out of summer.
