Summer started with a big ol' birthday party for my grandpa who turned 90. Happy 90th grandpa!!!!
Took advantage of the opportunity to get some updated 4 generation pictures with my mom, grandma, and each of my little girls.
Next up was the annual 4th of July parade in my mom's little town.
|Mom took this opportunity to introduce us to her new beau. She married him last week.|
|Coolest license plate ever!!!! If you can enlarge it, Doctor Who fans will be happy to see "BADWOLF"|
We made our first trip to Colonial Days. Like a Renaissance Faire, but for colonial times.
|Played old timey games|
|dressed in old timey clothes|
|joined the old timey militia|
|and went to old timey school|
That same weekend we also had a family reunion. We went to a lot of local places and hung out. It was really lovely.

|Even Igloo got into the spirit of things. He has no idea I took this. Good thing he never reads my blog! :)|
Munchkin graduated from her online preschool. I loved Rusty and Rosy and think she learned a lot from it!
|Way to go girl!|
My cousin got married!! I learned that if you want to get Igloo on the dance floor you have to play Journey. Then he'll stay when his daughters want to dance with him.
|Check it out, we're doing the Thriller!|
|Lots of camping and mountain exploring!!|
|Exploring in the woods led us to paradise.|
I started taking karate with Jack.
|Testing for my yellow belt.|
|I even earned my belt!|
|Fire and Ice at my uncle's for Pioneer Day was amazing, as always.|
|More camping with friends.|
|tree hugger in training|
|Love how tough she is|
|They have become good friends this summer|
|I love us.|
We learned Tumbleweed is pretty good with Lego's.
And visited museums because well, we're nerds and I don't think there's anything cooler.
|Of course, we had to visit the dinosaurs!|
|The shark was less cool this year.|
|Jack earned his Wolf in cub scouts.|
|He's super excited.|
Munchkin played soccer.
|She's ready for "bunch ball" to end|
|We visited the Great Basin Museum in Delta, UT.|
|old timey weaving.|
We also visited the Leamington Museum in Leamington, UT which is only open on Labor Day. But I called the mayor and got us hooked up with a private tour 2 days earlier. I'm awesome like that.
|We found a sleeping bat outside the building. Munchkin was soooo sad she couldn't take it home and begged for a pet bat the rest of the day.|
Of course the real reason for the visit was to meet up with Igloo's dad and step mom.
|Lars and grandpa|
And then school started! Already?! Yep.
|First Day of Kindergarten!!! She's real excited!|
|First day of home school!!!! He's less excited.|
