Speedy Summer

He's a picture filled summary of our very speedy summer!

The fourth of July was a magical time for Lynnlee. She got to stay up with us and watch us set things on fire. Tommy and Mitchell bought some from the fireworks stand and we set them off in our parking lot. Tommy also almost died. He decided to jump through and firework but it didn't work as well as he had anticipated. No worries, there was no injury.

Courtney and Chris were in Utah for a second and we were able to visit them. Amelia and Lynnlee stayed with their cousins while Mitch and I celebrated our anniversary. We stayed in Salt Lake, went shopping, went horseback riding, and of course ate a lot of food! 
Everyone has to hold the baby!
Catching butterflies and being princess. 


Amelia loves Hattie!
With six girls all with a mind of their own this is the best we got.
Love them. 


We took over our first gym :) 

Mitch's mule. 

My horse's name was Ariel!

The Blue Iguana, not too shabby. 

Swimming because of course you swim at the
hotel!

Our anniversary was so fun. I'm very happy we were able to go do something together. I love Mitchell!
And these beauties were super comfy!

What's summer without a few swimming jaunts? We've went to Brigham a few times and Logan once. Puddle jumpers are life savers! I would lose my sanity without them. Thank goodness. We also celebrated Grayson's birthday! It was at the Bounce N' Slide and you know how my kids love them some Bounce N' Slide.


Trains on the tracks! Chy is so creative!

He's blue! Don't worry he ate all the frosting!




Here's a race with a crash! It was basically Nascar!


Our library is awesome and they had a Harry Potter themed party! We all got sorted into our houses, made wands, drank some brewed potion, ate chocolate frogs, and made badges for our houses. It was a blast! I'm almost positive I enjoyed it more than the girls. 
Story hour the day before the party consisted of
meeting Hedwig and learning about owls.

Lynnlee was Ravenclaw!

Millie was Slytherin... Are we surprised? Haha

Chy was a Ravenclaw too!

A magic wand!

My Slytherin baby. 

Haha I love this! 

Seriously!

Nollie takes the cake though! Hahaha! 

Hmm. It's quite nice. 

So excited!

Eating our chocolate frogs. We did hold on tight!

Don't mind them, they are just playing a bit of Quidditch. 

Amelia is an EXCELLENT chaser. 
For now, that's all I have time for. Next blog you'll hear about hikes, ward parties, zoo adventures, and lots of walks!
