Utah part 2

So below are some pics from August. We were still in Utah during the first 1/2 of August having fun with the family. Oliver had his b-day which was super fun to go up Provo Canyon and play at the park and go fishing. He had a lot of fun. I can't believe he is 4 now! Time has flown by. He is such a smartie pants, he is constantly amazing me. He also has an incredible memory, which as a parent can seem good or bad depending on the situation! ha, ha. In August he took some swimming lessons at the P.G. pool with his friend Kate, they had a lot of fun and on the last day he even got to go down the big slide with his teacher, which I think he thought was horrifying and slightly fun. But it was good because he got in the water which was a big step for him and he enjoyed it, so all in all it was a good experience. (Ruby also had her b-day in August, but that was talked about before.) Also on our trip, Ruby learned to drink through a straw and she has been in heaven ever since. She loves it, she doesn't care what is in there, she just wants to use a straw! We're just hoping this doesn't turn into a drinking problem given all the guzzling she is doing!

Our trip to Utah- Part 1

Ok, yes we have been back from Utah for like 3 weeks now, but I'm just getting to the posting of stuff. We had such a good time in Utah just hanging out with family and being together. So here are some pictures from July. Oliver had fun running around in his underwear for some reason and loved my parents garage. I don't know what it was about the garage that was so alluring, but he was always wanting to go out there! And Ruby was overwhelmed at first by the largeness of my parents house compared to our house in Craziville, so it took her a bit, but once she mastered the art of going down the stairs backwards, she was a wild woman! She roamed till her little heart was content.
Zack actually went to Japan during a part of July for what I'm choosing to call a "research VACATION." (notice my emphasis on the vacation part!) But while he was gone I saw a lot of my old friends for high school and college, so that was great. So fun to catch up with people. And the kids were in the Children's 24th of July parade that Zack's parents ward has every year. They enjoyed that a lot. They also had fun over at Bubbie and Grandpa's house playing with Striker and Gage and all the neighborhood kids running around that place! Oliver was in little boy heaven! So enjoy some of July's pictures and look forward to some from August in a few days! (I know, the suspense will be killing you, with those adorable faces, who can blame you? ha, ha)

July In Utah!!

Ruby Turns 1

For Ruby's Birthday we went to Newport, RI for the day to have a little fun in the sun! We walked around town and ate lunch, then we headed to Goosebury Beach. It was fun to play at the beach, the kids had a blast, and it was a perfect day to be out in the sun! Then we had some birthday cake at home! I can't believe our little girl is 1! It's crazy! Seems like the past year has just flown by! We love you Ruby!
