yes, i finally remembered that i have a blog. ugh. i'm so far behind in most aspects of my life lately...but let's not go there.
first, i'm feeling better. i'm pretty much back to feeling like me again. can i get a "yahoo!"
let's just say that recovery mixed with gnarly pain meds sprinkled with insane hormone changes doesn't make this chick a very fun person to be around.
just ask mark. actually, don't ask mark.
it's been a frustrating (and somewhat tear filled) four weeks, to be perfectly honest.
but enough of that...
let's move on to the fun stuff, shall we?
i was going to break up all of these pictures into little posts but i'm thinkin i'll just go for it and overwhelm you with pictures. also, a lot of these i've already posted on instagram so i apologize for the repeats.
and here we go...
|lots of library trips|
|saturday mornings at the farmers market|
|slip n slide fun on the days we weren't sitting at the pool all day|
|late summer nights where izzy put herself to bed on the couch after long days|
|izzy had her fourth birthday. my baby is four?!|
|i also signed her up for a gymnastics class. the hour she spends there every thursday is the highlight of her week.|
|ethan's birthday is two days after izzy's. so we did a little more celebrating. not a picture of: mark and i taking ethan and his friend, kayden, out to dinner and then to see the new spiderman movie.|
|ethan requested dirt cake instead of a regular birthday cake. fine by me!|
|also during the birthday week, we went down to thanksgiving point in lehi and toured the gardens. it was beautiful.|
|just us girls hangin in the casino. we have twilight vampire eyes for some reason.|
|eating out has got to be a vacation highlight for me. no cooking and cleaning up? yes please!|
|vegas bingo! cam is the only one of us who won anything. that's a frustrating, and highly addictive, game.|
|a few days after vegas, my sister and i participated in the 'kiss me dirty' mud race. as you can see i copied this pic from their website. i'm sure we'll do the race again next year. it was a lot of fun!|
|and then school started and ruined all the summer fun. actually, my kids love school so they were happy to get back to it. can you believe i have a 5th grader? craziness.|
so, there you have it. our summer in a nutshell. summer was kind to us and we had a lot of good times. however, i'm completely ready for fall! bring on the cooler temps, football games and holidays!
