end of Summer

It's been an incredibly busy summer filled with adventure and amazing memories.. and we are officially ready for Fall.

My Sammy is starting preschool (2 days a week) and soccer. I am officially a soccer mom!!  Since he has changed so much this year, I had to reflect on his baby/toddler years. I cannot believe all the changes!  Not only is he sooooo tall and his shoe size is getting close to mine.. but he is so smart. He talks so well and is very observant. I love that he wants to learn new things all the time. He is very coordinated and is great at a lot of sports. 

My Jadey is so hilariousl She is so much fun and I love her personality. One thing that I think is so funny is that she LOVES men! She, of course, is a daddy's-girl, but she attaches to guys (about Matt's age). For example, I went to Inkley's to check out some camera stuff. Jadey went up to this random guy and put her hands up to be held. So I went over and picked her up. She screamed and arched her back.. I put her down and she went back to the guy and he held her the whole time we were at the store. She also LOVES my cousin David and Rochelle's husband, Austin. She spent most of our Pineview trip hanging out with them.

She babbles so much that she actually thinks we understand her!  You can ask her any question and she'll respond with, "Yeah."  Her hair is getting so long and curly. She is so girly and sassy.. she has us laughing all the time.

Matt and I decided that we wanted to get a toy we could do as a family for a long time... we wanted something we would all enjoy and that will keep us close.. so we bought a Rhino.  We have had a lot of adventures already. My favorite is listening to Jadeyn yell, "YEAAAHHHHH!!" or clap her hands when we go really fast. And watching Sam and Jadey laugh at each other back there.

Stansbury Days and Light Boat Promenade

To finish off the summer, we spent a week up at Pineview Reservoir for my Grandparents 60th anniversary. 20 adults & 7 kids.

One of my favorite parts of this trip was taking the tram up snow basin to an amazing brunch!
Daddy-daughter time

60 years!!! What an amazing example!! That will be Matt and I in 50 years :)
Hot tub party

Is there anything better than laying on the bow of the boat.

Jadey found her way over to baby Brynlee's umbrella and blankey.
Tubing madness with my Matty -- glad I made it out alive!

Leave it to my girl :D   The last night we went to a local BBQ with live entertainment.
