first day of 3rd grade

Kaden started 3rd grade last week.  Its always a hard adjustment starting a new year, with a new teacher, etc.  We went in the week before school started, so that we could officially meet his teacher (she's in our ward, but he didn't really know her).

He's sporting a new tshirt and new shoes.




  This is actually pretty accurate....Kaden is cool and Bosten is being a goof.



He's off to a great start!

rise and shout

BYU invited the public to their final scrimmage, so we thought we should go check it out.

We decided to act like it was the real thing and put flags on the car and wear our shirts.

We took our cousin with us too...so fun!

Go Cougars!!

more summer fun

We went miniature golfing one night as a family.




The boys had dental appointments and got to practice brushing some friends' teeth.




We checked out a new park two days in a row.


Some of our favorite people came over and they decided to play in the mud.


A few days later, we decided to have fun at Cherry Hill together.


Silly Bos and his red drink lips.

airplanes are cool

After the temple open house, we decided to stop at the airplane museum.  We hadn't been for awhile, so it was fun to go check out what was new.




Of course, we had to take our picture by the Oregon plane.




The learning center was open this time (somehow we've missed it the last couple of times), and we got to do some flight simulations and science experiments.



We loved it, and had a great time.

ogden temple open house

We have been anticipating the Ogden LDS Temple open house.  Kyle had to switch days off last week, so when we realized the open house had started we figured we'd go sooner, rather than later.



It was beautiful.  The boys were down right annoyed that this open house didn't have cookies and water bottles at the end of the tour (like every other one we've been to).
Its a good thing this was right across the street.




Ice cream on a hot day is way better than cookies anytime!

random phone pix

Here's a few random things we've been up to.

Went to the new Disney movie.


We finally had a carrot ready from the seeds we planted forever ago.


We had lunch at Chuck E Cheese one day.


I bought a roll of tape and the boys have spent hours making their city.  Not going to lie, its starting to bug me after several days, but I'm trying to just not think about it.


My niece has started texting.  It is hilarious, and I probably get 25 messages (at least!) a day.
Love her.

pioneer day fun

Handcart days in Bountiful are usually the 23rd and 24th, so we celebrated Pioneer Day for two days!

It was hot....so hot (like 102 degrees in the shade).


Kaden had a camera that squirted water, and he had a great time "taking pictures" of people in the crowd and those who were close enough in the parade.


Bosten wasn't feeling good after his allergy test (earlier in the day), so we bailed early and took him home.  I was praying we didn't end up in the ER in the middle of the night.  Thankfully, he had a good night's sleep and felt better in the morning.

So, we were off to the park for games, rides, activities, food and a play.  



We took a little rest, and then spent the rest of the day at Cherry Hill.  We didn't buy passes this year, so this was our first trip of the summer.  We had a great time and it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.

We are grateful for the pioneers and their sacrifices....
and for the holiday we get to have by living in Utah.
