Swimming Lessons

My two fish.
Hatalee on the diving board.
Maren wouldn't jump off the diving board- so this is her version of it.

The girls finished up swimming lessons last week and did great. I'm thrilled their lessons are over, getting three kids up and ready and out the door by 8:30 every morning is a task for me. I dropped off "Monster boy" at moms while I took the girls to lessons- this way I wouldn't be jumping in fully clothed after him. The girls love the water and by the last day Maren was finally getting it! :)

"Cousin Camp" in Review..

Running through the fountains at Gateway. Playing in the sprinklers at Grandmas.
Hot Dog Roast at Whiting Campground.
It wouldn't be "Cousin Camp" without Jumpin Jacks.

Grandma and the babies.

The last couple of summers my mom has had this great idea to have a "Cousins Camp". River and Ridge spent the week at my moms(you have to be in kindergarten in order to stay without parents)and we tried to cram in as many activites as possible! The kids loved it and mom and myself were completely exhausted at the end of each day. The kids were hilarious in making decisions at what they wanted to do, but in the end I think they were all happy with what activities were chosen. So untill next year... (it's a good thing we have a year in between to recover from exhaustion) Go Cousin Camp!!!

San Juan River

Last week we had the chance to float The San Juan River with my family. It was so nice to be with all of my siblings (we missed Todd and Ash) and spend time together. The weather was amazing, the water was high and moved fast, the kids loved playing in the sand and water 24/7, and amazingly enough we had no injuries or sickness! Yeah!! We left Micah home with Richard and Karla, so the trip would be enjoyable for me. :) Thanks Tyler for putting the trip together for all of us, it was an amazing time!
