Summer 2010

In July Greg had to go to a training in Utah. My friend Megan's husband was also gone one weekend, so we decided last minute to make a trip to Sea World. It was a fun weekend.
The kids posing right in front of the park.
The kids were tired of walking so we had all of them sitting in the stroller. It was quite funny!
Madi begged for cotton candy all day, so we finally got them a bag.
The kids are soaked from the dolphin show. But still smile for the picture.
Madi's favorite thing at Sea World is the touch pool were she likes to pet the star fish.

What a fun day, but it ended on a sad note. That afternoon I got a call from Greg saying he was coming home because his grandmother had passed away. So that next day we drove home to meet Greg and then we turned around a few days later and headed to Idaho for the funeral. On the way we stopped in Utah and saw Emily and Scott. We went to the dinosaur museum in Thanksgiving Point.

The only picture I have of Emily. Greg loves to pull faces in pictures. (Nice one Greg).
This was a fun museum, the girls can't wait to go again some day.

The funeral was very nice. We had fun with Greg's family in Idaho Falls. We wish we could have met on different terms, but it was a great week.

A few weeks later it was Megan's birthday. A few of us went to a resort on the strip and stayed up all night swimming, talking, eating and playing games. It was so much fun.

Every summer we get free passes to the Lied Children's Discovery Museum. The girls were excited to go, so the morning after Megan's party we went over there.

We spent a lot of time with Tara and Megan's kids this summer. Here we are at the pirate water park.
It is so sad that the summer is over, but it is a relief to be back to school and in a routine. Until next summer...

Sea World

We ended the summer by going to San Diego. We went to the Wild Animal park, Sea World and the beach. I forgot to bring my camera into the Wild Animal Park, so I only have pictures of Sea world and the beach.

The girls loved the Sesame Street play area. We went 3 times that day.
Payton in the tubes.
We sat in the last row of the bottom section in the Shamu show. Here is Payton hiding under the bleacher screaming because Shamu got her wet!!

Payton's Big Day

With the start of the school year, it brings the birthday of my little red head. Payton turned 5 this week. Yesterday we had a fun Princess and the Frog birthday party for her. I can't believe my baby is 5 and in kindergarten. She is such a sweet red head and I can't wait for what the future holds for her. Love ya Payton!!
