swimming in a storm

We made one last trip to the pool before summer was over. The boys have really grown comfortable with the water this year. I am proud of them for trying and practicing swimming. We went with Linds to the South County Pool- or Riverton Pool as we called it growing up. We had passes here every year and would swim all day. It hasn't changed a bit! It has diving boards, but the rest is just pool. I don't know if this is why it was pretty empty? We loved it though and it only cost $2 to get in I think. There was a storm looming the whole day, but no lightning, so we kept swimming. I wish I had some pictures of me, my sister and our friends at the pool when I was little!

Franky boy!

Will, wearing the shark fin.
Benny and Elliott
Elliott was practicing his flips and handstands and couldn't figure out how to keep the water out of his nose... the nose plug helped- haha! He is a great swimmer above water.
Ollie is the underwater fish!


"To da rescuuuuuue!"

Being walruses or sea lions, I can't remember which. Elliott, Benny and Linc.

Found this gorgeous tree as we were driving away.
A fun day at the pool!

last days of summer

Adam, Ollie, Daxton, Brayden, Elliott
Went with these guys to a concert- My Morning Jacket, WILCO and Bob Dylan!
Had fun taking the big boys.
Using our Pass of All Passes at Trafalga
Dinner from my mom's garden! We are taking care of it while she is in Finland.
Twins in their bear shirts- my cute boys!
Checking the garden in the morning with these two peaches.
After church with Frank Everett

Franky's first cold meant the cutest, raspiest baby voice ever. Glad it didn't last too long.
Linc sleeping with the light on after he played a scary video game at the neighbors- so sad. 
Went to the temple to support our friend Ashley Calder who is going to The Philippines on a mission. She is an amazing girl!
Mount Timpanogos Temple
Summer skies!
More Trafalga- this time with cousin Gabby. Ollie held her hand for a bit the first time, but she went on to ride it like 30 more times- she loved it!
Elliott and Ben on the squirting boats.
Me and Linc in glow-in-the-dark mini-golf.
Little Linc, climbing high!
Tiny surfer boy.

The aquarium. Elliott was showing Franky all there was to see. Cute watching him try to grab the fish as they swam by.
Freshly bathed deliciousness.
Boys in neon stripes watching the world wake up.
Our first drive-in movie with our cousins! We watched planes and it was cool because the planes from the airport were flying over us the whole time. And we all saw a huge shooting star next to the screen.
Beautiful farm land in South Jordan next to a reception we went to.
Adam and I at Amanda's reception.

Franky's first apple. He loved Grandma's tasty apple!
At his 6-month appt. Healthy and happy. 18 pounds of squishy love. 
Found this surprise in Grandma's corn we were shucking for dinner. It tasted delicious too.
Made some chocolate zucchini bread that was heavenly. From Our Best Bites.
