We have been really busy since my last post, a lot has been going on with our family in the way of spending time together. Jeff has always enjoyed the outdoors, and has brought that into our home. It has been a fun way to do stuff together. We really enjoy taking our boat out on the lake mostly close to home. We have been spending a lot of time out on the water fishing and have had a great time enjoying the good weather before it gets Cold and snowy. Which is changing quickly. We had some great luck in catching some fish these last couple trips we went on and it was relaxing and fun.
Now we are into Fall and heading into Winter. The kids had a good time trick or treating. We went to my mom's house for our usual fun with Chili, rolls, doughnuts and warm cider. We took the kids around their neighborhood and then went around our neighborhood. It seemed like not a lot of people were home this year(including ourselves) but the kids had a good time. I am really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. We are spending it with my family. We are going to my mom's house which I love. I love this time of year when it starts to get chilly, and we get to wear warmer clothes, I love the smell of fall and winter and the feelings I get and the thought of hot chocolate, warm cookies, friendship and love.

The kids this year earned some free Seven Peaks passes. Now that the weather has warmed up Jeff took off a day of work and we took the kids to Seven peaks water park. We all had a great time the water and weather was great. Aaron and Jeff enjoyed the water slides and the girls and I enjoyed the wave pool. Sophie really likes to play in the kiddie pools and is just a little fish in the water.
This summer my mom has committed to doing something once a week with us and it has been so much fun. We took the kids to the Payson Pool and had lunch. It is a really fun pool for all the kids. They had water slides, and a fantastic kiddie pool area for Sophie to play in. It was just as nice as Seven Peaks if not better. I know the price was a lot better for pretty much the same stuff. We also did a fun park day with my mom. My mom and I took the kids with My sister Pam and her kids to see a free movie and had treats. I think this summer is turning out to be better than I thought it would in the beginning. I am looking forward to seeing what other adventures this summer has in store for our family.

The things we love about Sophie:
-she is always happy
-the way she says "sank you"(thank you)
-the way she dances everywhere
-she loves to go to Maceys to ride in the car cart and get a cookie
-she falls asleep in bed reading books to herself
-she uses the "OK" sign to show how old she is
-her smile and laugh
-how she sings primary songs with actions after coming home from church.
These are just a few of the many things we love about our vibrant little three year old.
We love her and so thankful that she is apart of our family it jut would not be the same without her. Happy Birthday Sophie!!

During the rest of our vacation we spent a good deal of time out on our boat. Jeff is slowly teaching me how to drive it. The kids really like boating and riding on the inner tube. We decided a few times to take a few breaks from the water. One time we found a sandy shore that Sophie could play on for a break, the other time was to dock and go to this little store they have and get an ice cream treat which was fun and refreshing. We really had a great vacation and look forward to going again next year.
