Summer Wrap Up & Jack Turns 2!

Catching up on our family life again...

Went to lots of summer movies. Wore our hat sideways. Watched games. Went on Dates. Swam A LOT.

Hung out with friends. Got into messes in the pantry. Jumped in puddles on 4th of July. Had lots of frozen yogurt and Yogurtland. Colored SO MUCH. Learned to love sunglasses or "eyes".

Getting too big. I read the Divergent Series Part 1 and 2 and am real excited for Part 3. Love our Buzz Lightyear action figure. Discovered what our future profession is-garbage truck driver. Obsessed.

Went on a day trip to a Payson campground for a birthday celebration for my grandpa. It rained and we left quickly-totally soaked. Jack had his first golf lesson in the woods.

Went on the annual Carlsbad, CA Vacation. Best trip ever. We took lots of naps and walks. Watched the closing ceremony of the Olympics. GO Spice Girls! And ate at the best restaurants!

Cutest beach bum.

Digging holes and tunnels in the sand with Dad. It took a while for him to warm up to having sand all over him. He likes to be clean Thank-you-very-much.

Papa calls him the "resort baby" and for good reason. He likes it so much better than the beach because he does not get dirty.

Stayed for Sunset one night. So beautiful. We built a sandcastle while we waited for the sun to go down. The picture on the bottom is Jack mad that we are going home.

It cooled off for a few days in a row and we got to play at the park in the middle of summer. Best treat ever! Hung out with his cousin. Colored some more. Played with Play-Doh for the first time. Such a big boy on Mom & Dad's bed watching a movie while we pack for Utah.

Took a whirlwind trip to Utah for Alisha's wedding. We stayed at Stuart's Aunt & Uncle's house. Jack loved it! Got to see my best friends! Such a treat.

We gave him a tool bench for his 2nd Birthday. To say he is obsessed would be an understatement.

Threw Jack a Paint Party for his 2nd Birthday Party.

The Little Artists.

We played games and Stuart manned the pizza oven for the guests.

Blowing out the candles.

He only ate the frosting on his cupcake. And we had to have 2nd dinner later that night so he could test out his new table. Such a silly boy! We just love this little guy and are so happy he is ours!
