Trick or Treating in July

The Provo Library has such a great children's program. For a prize for doing the summer reading program the kids got to trick or treat around the ballroom. It was really fun and well done. Ben improvised for a few seconds. :)

On the Farm

My friends I met from working at the Provo Temple, Gayle and Lynda, own a little 1-acre farm with dogs, cats, chickens, geese, and ducks. We've been out there twice now and it is so much fun! The first time they sent us home with 3 goose eggs to cook up. :) This time we went home with freshly picked broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, and squash! It was such fun!

July 4th celebrations

 Parade along University Avenue in the morning. It was hot! Garrett is on Grandpa Gary's shoulders behind Ben. After the parade we walked to a 7-11. The boys were also introduced to 7-11 Slurpees for the first time. May have been my first time too...
 Got the pool out in front of the house after the parade to cool off.

 Real men work in the kitchen.

 Our delicious shishkabob grilled dinner.
 THE BOX of fireworks. :)
 The boys made fire works hats at the library.
 Such a fun day!!!
 The next morning the boys are doing what they do best when Grandpa comes: play with his IPad or IPhone, and then take turns. :)
Grandma Gayle sent them each a new outfit. Thanks Grandma!

T-Ball and Baseball

The season is over, and I am sort of glad. This summer was my first taste of what a 'soccer mom' does. Two practices during the week, and then two games on Saturday. And I signed the boys up at the Orem rec center at the time because we were living in Orem. Now we live in Provo, so it takes a good 20 minutes to get to practice and games each time. Richard really liked it, Garrett tolerated it and we'll think about it next year. :) Enjoy some pictures.
