Bees buzzed and our kids blew lots of dandelion fuzz and this is what we all did this summer:
We had a graduation (and a first-time Daddy-daughter road trip for Elizabeth.) We're so proud of Aunt Kim and are super excited for her freshman year at BYI-Idaho!
|Two alums of Mexico Academy|
We had a family reunion!
|The whole gang for a fireworks/bbq/dance party extravaganza|
|Playground fun with Cousin Isaac|
|Living room fun with Cousin Timothy|
|The kids LURVE their Aunt Amy|
|Good quality sister time|
|Aunt Amy, Dad, and Aunt Jill all turned 60 this year so we had a fiesta to celebrate.|
|A fiesta complete with pinata, Cafe Rio, and a "photo booth" with props|
|BJ and Adam got a lot of good Bro Bonding Time.|
|It filled my heart to bursting to see my kids and my brother having so much fun together.|
But the summer was only half over! We still had . . .
|Cotton Candy! At every opportunity!|
|Fun on bounce houses!|
|Fun on slip-and-slide bounce houses!|
|Stick Pull. Can you guess who won?|
|President Bria taking on his first counselor. |
Now that's a good way to resolve any tension in the Branch Presidency.
|And guess who learned to ride her bike without training wheels.|
|Eddie being brave in the deep end|
|Taught by neighbors Maddie and Allia. For $3/lesson. Adorbs.|
And some see-saws.
|You can see me behind Charlie, so innocent, not knowing what pain and humiliation awaited me.|
|With the Li's at Wharton Canal Day, which, btw, have the best fireworks show we've ever seen.|
