It has been a nice, relaxing summer so I have no excuse for not keeping up on the blogging. I hope my kids aren't disappointed that we didn't do anything "big" this summer. But there are the little moments I wouldn't trade for anything:
*Trip to Seattle with my mom and the kiddos to visit Aunt Brenda
*Watching Dallin and Emily play together
*playing with friends at the park while Bryce just chills out.
*Dallin reading his first book out loud (a Pokemon book that I didn't want to buy him in the first place!)
*Dallin reading to his sister
*Bryce smiling and giggling
*Emily stripping off her clothes to put on any princess "pretty dress"
*Emily buying a porcelain Cinderella for $1 at a garage sale and not going anywhere without her. (Poor doll was literally loved to death.)
*Many hours singing princess songs
*Many hours doing "math" with Dallin
*Many hours building paper airplanes
*Flying airplanes at the park
*Pulling weeds to help Dallin earn money for his big bike
*Hanging out with my wonderful neighbors in the front yard, in the back yard, wherever
*Going on the boat- always a fun time!
*Dallin's first outdoor soccer practice- he was so excited when he learned a new way to kick the ball in the goal!
*Swimming at the Y with dad
*Dallin trying to come up with any way he can to make money!
We still have many more memories to make and these are just some of our favorites. I will try to post more often, but for now just know I am soaking in these moments with my wonderful children, family and friends!
