Summer is officially over

First day of school

Yes, school started today.  My monkeys were excited, nervous, scared, happy, anxious….. you get the idea.  It’s such a big day.  I think it’s as hard on me as it is on the kids.  They might disagree though. 

We had a fabulous summer.  I thought I’d recap a few of our favorite summer past times.

kids swimming playing in the rain

We swam and swam and swam and also did a little playing in the rain.  Yes, our family likes water.

Fireworkswatching the fireworks

Of course we watched fireworks.  Twice.  We had a great cousin sleepover with fireworks and camping in grandparents back yard.  Then we had an awesome breakfast and our annual marshmallow war!  The next day we went to the city fireworks in the rain.  It was great fun!

Watching the elephants at Hogle ZooRock sittin at Bridal Veil Falls

We went to the zoo.  We walked the trail up to Bridal Veil Falls, then played in the icy cold water.

Midway family home

We visited old family homes in Midway, UT and stayed in a condo at Park City where we took family pictures.  (Thanks Shellie and Matt!)

sleeping in the afternoon

And, the best part of summer was staying up late watching movies, sleeping in and taking naps whenever and wherever we wanted.  It was wonderful…..
