Hi everyone!! I have not updated my blog in a while! That's because we've been busy all summer with fun things to do! :)
We've been going to the new Mesquite Groves water park every week! The kids LOVE going there, and I like taking them because it's cheap! ;) We spend hours playing in the water and cooling down, although so far our AZ summer has been very mild.
We also go every Thursday to the shows at the QC library. We've had a magic show, reptile show, and story telling. They are a TON of fun!! What the kids like the most is getting a McDonalds ice cream come every time after the show. The kids are also in the library summer reading program and they've earned prizes!
We got an over the ground pool this summer so the kids spend HOURS in the back yard playing in the water!! Their friends love coming too.
Every week they go to Grandma's house for a fun day! She takes them swimming, on golf cart rides, and they play in her yard. The LOVE Grandma's days!! She's also been taking turns with the kids and takes them for their special day with Grandma and they get to sleep over at her house. How nice is that?!
I wished I had more pictures to post, but since most of our activities include water, I rather not take the camera!
Of course we LOVE our basement where we have "movie parties" with our friends and neighbors. We had one a couple of weeks ago and there were 28 people here at one point!! SO FUN!!
Here are a few of the very few pics I took this summer...
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe 4th of July! :)

Scout Camp 2009

Jace had the chance to go to scout camp for 6 days up by Flagstaff. They had a blast!!

Summer 2008

Here are a few pics of our summer FUN! We did a lot this summer! It went by really fast! (some days not fast enough with the kids though...)

Scout Camp 2008

Jace is the YM president in our ward. He had his scout camp from July 7-12th. He had a great time, especially doing wilderness survival. They went to Knoll Lake, about 1 1/2 hrs. NE of Payson, AZ.

Wood Badge!

I had the amazing opportunity to go to Wood Badge, which is, for the non-scouters, a 2 three day weekends leadership training for scout leaders. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. And it was a BLAST!!! I went April 17-19 and May 8-10, 2008.
