Happy Independence Day!!

Yes you are reading that right.  Today is my Independence Day.  I fly the flag, go out to lunch and do pretty much nothing all day.  It is the best day of the year for me. 
On the first day of school I always make cinnamon rolls for breakfast.  This is one thing that my kids never forget.  It funny that they always remind me.  I can't believe that this year I will have all of my kids in school.  Plus for the added bonus they are all in the same school.
Connor's first day is next week.  Bittersweet!!

Last fun day!

So we decided to do one last fun thing with our kids before they go back to school.  We took the kids downtown to the Childrens Museum and then to play in the fountains at the Gateway.  It was really nice that they had so much to do, that they did not complain once.  They had a great time!  What a nice way to end the summer.

Last camping trip of the year!

This last weekend we spend time in Nephi Canyon for our last camping trip of the year.  Jon and Colby had to stay home because of Football, so it was just Ashlee, Colton, Connor and myself.  What a great weekend we had.  They had fun playing in the water, rolling down the hill and just running around.  Thanks Holland's for letting us use the property again.  It was wonderful!

Happy Birthday Colby!

Colby turned 9 this last weekend.  He has been looking forward to his birthday since last year.  Colby loves to be the center of attention.  Birthday's are no exception.  He is learning to love football and wants to be a linebacker.  He was very excited about the gifts he received this year.  Mom was just as excited as now she does not have to clothes shop for school.  SCORE!!  Happy Birthday bucko!!
