Bike Parade

We had our annual primary bike parade. The kids had a great time decorating their bikes and socializing with the other kids. Damon insisted on wearing his Spiderman costume to go with his spiderman bike. I had all the kids while Alicia was at her grandmothers cleaning to get the house ready to sell. William did pretty good. After the video I pushed him around the parade route. He loved it and didn't want me to stop! So fun!

Crazy Weather

We have ad some crazy summer thunderstorms. Large amounts of water pouring down that is reminiscent of Texas. Also large hail. The one day I ran over to Damon's school with an umbrella so he wouldn't get soaked coming home. I got soaked from the knees down and by the time the bell rang and he walled out of the school it all stopped and the sun came out! Also, the water coming down the gutter was so strong it pushed our neighbor's trash can down to in front of our house. Crazy weather!

William's New Trick

So William learned a new trick. Not sure where he learned it. He started doing this a bit ago and Alicia was laughing as she told me about it. So I had to video it to share. When I videoed it I let William take my phone to show Mommy and found him and Damon showing Alicia the video over and over and laughing so hysterically!! It was so funny!

Bee's Game

Yesterday we went to the Salt Lake Bee's game with Kate, Joe and cousins. We had so much fun taking Trax up and back, having hot dogs, almost catching a ball (5 balls landed near us!) and watching the fireworks after! So much fun for the holidays!

This is the Place

We went to This is the Place Monument Friday with the Bradshaw's for some Pioneer adventures. Perfect since Pioneer day was coming up.

The kids enjoyed riding a pony, playing school and learning the Deseret Alphabet, bunking in the "ship" and going on a train ride! We sure enjoyed the Pioneer life for a day!

Happy Birthday 7-Eleven

Crazy how this is a huge holiday in our family! :) We made sure to go early this year, so we could get our free 7.11 oz slurpee at 7-Eleven. Daddy is in Oregon so he missed out!! Yum...

The Grandsons!

For the July birthdays on the Spence side we go to Tucano's for lunch, which is one of our favorite restaurants! This year as we finished eating the kids got to play in the little water area just outside. These cousins were having so much fun! They crack me up how much they love playing together and being silly!

St. George Trip

This past week we went down to St. George with Bob on his work trip. We sure enjoy it there and because of the clouds it wasn't as hot as we were expecting. On the way we had to reminisce about life in Cedar City! Good times!The kids spent EVERY day at the pool that was just outside our room. Damon even fell asleep in one of the rings after we'd been there for almost 5 hours! We did go through two bottles of Sunblock and still got sunburt!

You wouldn't think that in St. George the kids would want to hang out in the hot tub... but MINE did!!!Damon is getting so good at swimming, he was having a blast getting the diving rings and making new friends everyday.
Each day I was trying to teach William how to blow bubbles out his nose, or to plug his nose so he could put his face in the water, but he wouldn't have anything to do with it. THEN Bob, without know I had been trying this, shows me what he's taught William!!! Daddy's always have the magic touch!
Besides Swimming the kids could be found doing this... We don't have the Disney channel at home, and probably for good reason! :)

We also went to two different Splash Parks which the kids loved! But we probably had the most fun hanging out with our friends the Winslows! Each kid had a friend to play with and they are all so similar in their interests and personalities it was fun! This was the night before we left we had a movie night and while the kids were in the master bedroom watching Tangled, Lightening struck our building just two rooms above us and the breaker went off in their room besides lighting the room up! The kids screamed and we were just amazed at the rain/Lightening storm we were having.

Thanks to the lightening hitting above us it was smoldering all night and at 8am we had a knock on our door to get out!! We got to see 6 fire trucks, the water come out of the hydrant into the truck and up to the room just two above us and wonder if all our stuff was going to get wet too.

Notice the kids "saved" their bears and Kylie her swimming suit! :)
Not that often you can say you see a fire and get to see the firemen in action! We had a wonderful time in St. George! Oh... and none of our stuff got wet!

David's back!!

On June 18th, Bob's nephew Elder David Paul returned from his mission in Mexico. It was so fun to see him with his face all lit up as he saw his family. Bob of course had to record him with his new 3d video camera and it turned out really cool!
Welcome Home Elder Jackman!

Williams little boot

I realized I posted this on facebook, but not on our blog. A few Sundays ago visiting at Grandma and Grandpa's William landed wrong on his foot (Jumping with Brother and cousin) on the trampoline and sprained it. We thought it was broken and the radiologist at the InstaCare thought it was also broken. So for a week little William wore this cute little boot until the following weeks x-ray showed it actually hadn't broke! Can you believe they make these tiny boots! So cute!

Balloon Festival

Our annual balloon festival was fun even if the over cast didn't allow the balloons off the ground.
The new balloon was Darth Vader!!! Yeah, my boys were excited!

Murray Concert

We went to the Murray orchestra concert Saturday night with our good friends the Bradshaws. It was a wonderful concert and William was actually very interested even sitting next to friends.
The best part was the 'Flash Mob' choir that stood up in the audience during the Battle Hymn of the Republic and sang. Damon turned to me and asked why people were singing! :)
Steph did a great job and it was just a fun evening!
