After missing the actual first day of Kindergarten (because of the stomach flu) Maren was happy to finally start school! She was dressed and sitting on the couch with her back pack on at 9:00am even though her afternoon Kindergarten class starts at 12:40. I just hope her excitement lasts the whole the year.

Alina and the boys came up for one last weekend before school starts. We took advantage of Thanksgiving Points "Two Dolllar Tuesday" along with the rest of the state of Utah. I've been wanting to take Micah since his fascination of "saurs" began so we went and stood in line with everyone else. The line moved fast and wasn't too long of a wait, once we were inside he just walked around trying to soak it all in. The kids were so excited to show him all of the dinosaurs and ran with him from room to room. The only thing Micah didn't like- the shark.
We left the heat and drove to Summit Park to BBQ with Creed and Jenn. The air was much cooler and enjoyable. We hiked up a trail near their house and Micah was in heaven with sticks to sword fight and rocks as dinosaur eggs.
Father's Day Weekend was the Hjorth Family Reunion at Millsite. The kids were excited to sleep in the tent and go camping. We packed up and headed to the campground, the kids played, rode bikes danced with light sticks and then it rained. So Saturday morning we packed again, this time in the rain, and headed home. The kids were sad to leave so Grandma Zoey finished the campout at her house and the kids slept over with cousin Rylee. Everyone was happy.
