As most of already know, Logan was born the day after Jake's fifth birthday. This year I came home from Girls Camp on Jake's sixth birthday. That meant I had a lot to do to throw a party the next day for my two little guys! I can hardly believe that Jake is six! He will start first grade on Tuesday. It seems pretty weird that he will spend more of his day at school then home with me. Logan is no longer a baby, but a rambunctious one year old. This past year has flown by! We celebrated by have a dual themed party with the fam. Jake picked Speed Racer, and I picked "swingin' safari" for Logan. Jake informed me that he wanted Daddy to make his cake, because he was better at it. Luckily Logan didn't have a say, so I got to make the Monkey cake! The party was tons of fun! Jake also got to bring a few friends for a "bouncing" good time at the play house a few days later.
A summer highlight was the great time we had watching Jake play, and Chris coach, T-ball. The boys had a great time playing, and Coach Chris seemed to enjoy it too! It was a great time for my boys to bond! I am so glad Jake has a great dad that he can have fun with and look up to. Thanks Honey!
I never realized how much work Girls Camp could be when I was a camper. I have to send kudos to all of my leaders who must have spent many hours preparing for the multiple girls camps that I enjoyed! I had a great time with "my girls", but I am definately glad that girls camp is over for this year. We spent the week at a beautiful place called Piney River Ranch. We had fun crafts, a great hike, lots of spiritual moments, and an all around crazy good time. The girls decided to paint (yes paint, not polish) my nails purple during one of our slower moments! Thanks to my "lovely Laurels" who were great JC's!
We were lucky enough to spend some time as a family this summer visiting Aunt Lisa and Uncle Dustin, attending Cousin Angela's wedding, and having a good time in Park City. We loved the Alpine slide, ice cream at the cow shop, riding horses with Uncle Tex, and of course SHOPPING!
One of my favorite days this summer was when a mission companion came to visit. Caroline Howell, aka Sister Caroline Pulsipher was one of the best mission comps I had. We adored our time in tiny riverdale, and the smell of cows that greeted us every morning. Now we are both moms, and crazily enough we each have three little boys. Wow! We have come a long way, and it sure was fun looking back!
The past six weeks have been some of the craziest of my life! Since I last blogged I had a mission companion come to visit, Jake played an entire season of T-ball, we attended a wedding in Utah, took a vacation in Park City, I spent 4 crazy days at girls camp, we enjoyed some time with Jana and Bradley Snelgrove, and had two birthdays. Life is crazy! I can hardly believe that our summer is all but over, since Jake goes back to school in just a few days. WOW! I hope you enjoy the update!
