    We went to library class on Wednesdays. The kids got lots of good prizes and had fun doing crafts with cousins. I was impressed with the program this year.

    My blog has had technical difficulties for the last month. We’ve also been “on vacation” for about that long so…. Here We Go Again.

    I was ready to post these pictures at the end of June. So I’m a month late but here we go. We had a great start to the summer:


    Slip n Slide FUN with Falabella’s and Pacen


    Birthday Balloons are the best at this age!


    1 year old pictures. This is the only time we go to the mall 🙂


    Push ups with Millie – she doesn’t realize that I’m not as strong as Uncle Brady.


    These kids spend lots of summer nights in the loft!


    Packer’s sweet testimony in a Book of Mormon that he wants to give away.


    Babysitting Gus


    Pleasant Grove High School Soccer Camp!


    Nap or No Nap??


    FRENEMIES – sometimes she and Maren scratch and Bite 🙁


    Cousins! Hanging out with Sam and Christian.


    and the cousins new trampoline


    I am convinced that this ginormous weed that grew next to our air conditioner was the cause of most of our summer allergies… maybe…


    Cousins are FUN


    another successful RSL date!


    Sundays in June with Uncle Michael!


    sweet baby Quincy


    Cherry Picking at Grandma and Grandpa Nettys


    Cousins at RSL


    Ben took Cali to one of the RSL games and Michelle took Mia!!


    Fun with Snapchat


    Cute Raymond

    Summer is exhausting but it’s fun exhausting not homework exhausting. At the end of June we had friends and family come and we went  and now another MONTH has flown by. Hopefully I can get caught up quickly.
