Before the boys went back to school, we continued our annual tradition of summertime mom and son dates. The boys each get to take me out, pick where we eat and one fun activity.
I got to play tennis with Kade. I think we ended up having more fun when we stopped playing real tennis and started making up our our challenges with the ball and racquets.
We ate at Chefusion Lounge, and Kade hasn't stopped talking about it since.
Ky and I went to a gourmet burger place, where he ordered this huge burger and ate it all!
We spent the rest of the evening wandering around Barnes and Noble, chatting, and having the best time!
Krew's date with me included Firehouse subs,
and of course a stop at the pet store to see the birds!
I always love when I get to take my boys to do fun stuff just the two of us. I love what they say and how they act when they aren't fighting for my attention or just plain fighting with their siblings!
We took a trip to Utah in August to visit with my family. Here are some of the many, many reasons we loved our amazing trip:
Playing at the park
Swimming in the neighbors' pool
Playing with grandma's homemade puppets
Making snow cones with grandma
Bart and Ashli's weekend getaway in the mountains
Lots of shaved ice!
One last night at the racetrack before it closes forever :(
Lots of birds at the Bean Museum
The obligatory picture with Po while visiting grandpa's office
Visiting BYU campus
Taking pictures in front of the Y on the mountain so we can compare them to the pictures they'll take in the same spot when they someday go to BYU!
Seeing our old BYU married student apartment moments before it was demolished!
Hanging with Cosmo
Pink donuts and sprinkles
Visiting "our" temple
Relaxing with grandpa
Canyon dinners with family
Lagoon with grandma!
Picnics in the canyon
Walking in a waterfall
Pickleball with friends
A day at the lake with friends
Pretending to be the queen while waiting for dinner
Meeting this amazing bird!
And, believe it or not with all of these pictures, we had more fun than what is pictured here. It was a great trip and though it kills me to have to live so far from my family, and friends, and so far from the mountains, it's nice to be able to have a great time when we get to visit.
