Happy 12th Birthday, Spencer!

For Spencer's 12th birthday, he decided to invite a few friends camping.  We reserved a spot at The Spruces, in Big Cottonwood Canyon. 
 These goofy boys were making me laugh constantly!
There was still a little bit of snow in the mountains.....in June! It was a little chilly so sitting around the fire kept us nice and warm!
 But nothing stopped these guys from goofing off and having a good time!

 Brooklyn and Savannah were like two peas in a pod!
Audra bought the girls matching shirts, and of course....they had to bring them up camping.  The shirts were never the same after that!

 Grandpa Louis let the boys borrow his pocket knives.  They made all kinds of spears with them!

Fun times in nature, celebrating special times and being with people we love.  That's what life is all about!

Summer Fun Creates Lasting Memories!

This was just one of the many sleepover activities of the summer!  The merry-go-round is a huge hit at the Bluffdale Park.
Brighton and Jaden are sticking together....with this many girls, what else can you do?
Look at the monkey on the monkey bars!!
They've got their weapons, and they know how to use them!  Tough boys!
The kids were enthralled with the teeter-totter.  I don't think I've heard so many giggles in my life!
Yep, they all had to try it out!
Up & Down!  Audra and I even tried it....not gonna post that pic!
Look how big my baby, Lydia is getting!
Her FAVORITE thing to do at the park!  She's a happy girl!
Katelyn climbed all the way to the top!
What a perfect day!
