So we went to the smallest county fair I have ever been too!
We went very early and no one was there except for the 4-h groups judging all the animals.
We still had fun walking around.

Kalab wanted to see chickens! and oh-boy did we see chickens.
I loved this one and the feathers on his head! It just screamed "I NEED AMBER"

Flushed away

Our toilet has been slow to flush for a few days now. I was so grateful for Kalabs success in potty training but I think he is fascinated with things flushing.
But "OH-no-he-just-didnt " put Barbie cloths down the toilet!
I caught him today flushing, then jumping back in the tub!
I am sure that is not the only thing that has gone down causing the last few days of torture
He must think that Flushed Away is real and all those mice and rats need cloths and toys to play with!

more summer stuff!

I drove by the Young living lavender farm almost everyday!

I tried to do things in Ut that I had never done before.
I have never been to the copper mine so I took the kids.
We took Sawyer with us. She was such a big help with Aubrey and Kalab while we stayed with Lisa.

On the 24th of July we went to the Mormon Handcart pageant in Nephi.
It was so good for my kids to see this and asked questions about the pioneers that crossed the plains.

"the bell has rung"

This is the first year I didn't drive the boys to school!
They wanted to ride the bus ((((???))))
Taylor is in 5th grade, Chase is in 3rd.

Aubrey is starting Kindergarten... wow! she was 6 weeks old when we moved here and now she is starting school. It sure is a check on how time flies.
She wanted her hair in a side pony tail! (((UGH)))

Kalab could not be left out!
He wants to go to HIS school. I'm not sure where his school is.

This is us in Spanish Fork at the RODEO. Aubrey still can't say it right! Taylor wanted to ride a sheep, but was to big! We sat next to a girl that recognized me from Snow College! I wonder what she remembers about me?????

I finished this book and I am so disappointed with it. I don't want to spoil it for others, but not my favorite. It took me almost 500 pages before I felt excited and that excitement was short lived! I found this site that kind'a sums it up!

I was afraid if I posted this then things would go down hill, but seeing how things are going, I will share my good news..
Yes my youngest is in big boy undies.
I do not have to change another diaper.
Kalab sits on the toilet funny, he straddles the toilet and always takes his clothes off.
We are always redressing him, but it is so worth it!

My nephew Brenan. How cute is he?

what we did in the backyard

Watched grandpa mow the lawn
picked grandmas flowers

Jump with Kylie, Read

Try and catch butterflies! After they caught them we looked them up in the encyclopedia
to see if we could figure out what kind they were!
OH the summer time!

Shay and Sawyer

I was the last to get thrown in. I held every ones cell phones and camera so I thought I was safe. I knew I was in trouble when they tried to throw Lisa in! I ran and hid in my car until Eric, a Lindon police officer, got a slimm jim out to break-in my car. I gave up and really didn't to wet!
