Josh's company had their Lagoon day and we were all SO excited to go! It's been a very long time since we took the kids to Lagoon. We were able to find some extra tickets so we invited Justin and Ali to bring their family with us. Unfortunately, I ended up hurting my back that week and could barely walk, so Steve and Kay went to help Josh with the kids. I cried as they all left bc I wanted so badly to be there. But they had a blast and the kids loved every minute of it!

Elijah lived across the street and was Brayden's best friend. They moved last year but came to visit! We were able to spend an afternoon playing and catching up. It was fun to see these 2 pick up right where they left off. 

1st Day of School

Brayden and Brooklyn started school! Year round school is always a little weird bc the kids got out of school 3 weeks ago. But now they are in a new grade and excited to meet their teachers and kids in their classes. Brayden is in 4th grade and Brooklyn is in 3rd! Brynlee has kindergarten testing this week so she officially starts next week.

Cabin Trip - Day 4

Happy birthday Josh!!! We usually are up at the cabin on Josh's birthday and there is nowhere he would rather be. It's alway so fun to celebrate up there. We relaxed for a bit in the morning, ate breakfast, then headed to the old cabin to take the Box's on a hike to the waterfalls. It was quite the hike with a baby and two 3 yr olds, but we made it! It was beautiful and worth the walk up there. We did some more 4 wheeling when we got back, ate dinner, then headed home. It was such a great and fun weekend!

Cabin Trip - Day 3

Steve and Javier came and joined us on Sunday. We honestly just relaxed and enjoyed the day. By late afternoon Josh's old boss and friend Jake arrived with his family and we had a big dinner with everyone. Then the Tucker's left and we spent the evening relaxing and playing games with Jake and Shannon.

Cabin Trip - Day 2

Saturday started out kinda crazy. Last night after the Tucker's arrived they started looking at an ad for some 4 wheelers that someone was selling. We've been wanting to buy some for a while so Ryan called the guy and talked to him for a while. Ryan and Trianna bought 2 last year and have loved them. These ones were the same ones that they had bought so Ryan knew a lot about them. He thought it was a great deal, so early this morning Ryan and Josh headed down with Ryan's trailer and made the 90 min trip to Spanish Fork. They got there and checked out the 4 wheelers and decided it was worth it. So they waited until the bank opened, got some money, bought the machines and headed back up! Just like that we now have 2 awesome 4 wheelers! We are really excited about them! Especially bc they are automatic and SO easy to drive that I feel 100% comfortable on them.

While they were gone, Trianna and I played with the kids and relaxed. Aaron and Vivian came up in the afternoon and loved playing with the kids as well. We enjoyed the day riding around and loved hanging out and playing games all night!

Cabin Trip - Day 1

We headed up to the cabin to celebrate the 24th of July as well as Josh's birthday. For a couple of weeks we had invited different people, uninvited them, had others commit then bail. We had no idea who was going to end up coming up with us. Last minute the Tuckers were able to come up so for the first half, then Josh's old boss came up the second half. It turned out to be a perfect weekend with a lot of fun! We headed up Friday morning with just us. We were able to relax for the afternoon play!
