Camping up Fairview Canyon

We had such a wonderful and tranquil 4 days camping up Fairview Canyon. We went with our dear "camping friends" and loved letting the kids fish, swim, canoe, and 4-wheel. The kids LOVED hanging out with eachother and playing all sorts of games while the parents chatted. Logan caught an 18" trout. It was awesome!!!!! He was really excited. All the men were jealous. Garrett even got to drive the 4 wheeler(with my help of course). It was so beautiful and made me so grateful for the beautiful world our Heavenly Father has created. The temperature stayed at 82 degrees with a light breeze the entire time. It really was a wonderful trip.

Playing with cousin Mylie

We watched our darling cousin Mylie yesterday and it was so fun watching Garrett with her. He wanted to hold her and feed her all by himself. I thought I needed to get some pics with the camera. Precious!!!!

A Great Fourth of July

We sure had a wonderful Fourth of July. We started the morning off with a early trip down to Provo's Freedom Parade. Next we went to my families "Annual Barbecue/Water Fight". It was so much fun drenching each other. I believe my kids had more fun this year than ever before. Does everyone know how cold the water is that comes from an Orem hose? VERY COLD! We had a yummy lunch and finished our fun day at the neighborhood annual culdesac firework show. There were more people that attended than ever before! It was wonderful and great to watch the dad's acting like boys with the fireworks. All of the ladies sat and visited. It was nice. I feel very grateful for this beautiful country and the freedom that we are so priviledged to have. It was a great day with my family!!!!!

Garrett's Birthday Again

Garrett had a birthday on May 30th and for his birthday this year I decided to make him some ice cream clowns in sugar cones upside down. He thought that was fine. Well....I guess it wasn't. He has mentioned to me several times that he wished he got a birthday cake so that he could make a wish and blow out his candles. I had to rip the knife out of my heart. I have ALWAYS made my children a birthday cake for each of their birthday's. So, I decided to celebrate his one month anniversary on June 30th with a homemade cake with candles. Garrett was thrilled and made his wish and blew out his candles. Who knew?
