Hello, Goodbye, Luau

This weekend was full of fun for us..we had family fly in from Arizona, Uncle Jim and Aunt Geri. Well Jim is a pilot, and flys his own plane. So they flew into the Woods Cross Airport and we went to pick them up. Tyler got to sit in the plane and where headphones. He was a little hesitant at first, but then by Sunday when they left he wanted to fly home with them. Some of the other grand kids were over so we went to see them off..and they all took turns sitting in the plane with Uncle Jim. It was a lot of fun to get up that close to an airplane, not that I would ever want to fly in it, because I would be scared to death and very claustrophobic. But we had a great time with them and hope to be able to go and visit them in Arizona someday. We love you Jim and Geri.

We also had our Ward Luau we were in charge of this weekend. It seemed to turn out great, we had quite a few people show up, but of course not as many as we planned on. We had a lot of help from our committee this time..we had most of the food catered by the Jackson's, we had the Levin's in charge of decorations (great job Emily), and the Padget's did pinatas for the kids. I know it doesn't really go with a Luau, but all kids love pinatas. Thank you Thank you for every body's help, and for all those who came and supported us, we think it turned out great.

Here are a few random pics of us swimming this summer. I put Tyler in Swim lessons for the summer, at the rec center. He seemed to really enjoy it and he caught on really quick. So since then we have been multiple times swimming. We also have went out to the Kearns Rec Center..where my mom has a season pass. Tyler really enjoys it there, because they have a really big bucket that fills up with water and then dumps out all over the splash pad. He isn't brave enough to go under it, but every time the bell rings to alert you that it's falling he comes running to watch it.

My cute little swimmer

Finally Daddy came swimming with us, I think he enjoyed it just as much as Tyler

Swimming with the Wilkey's, the Catenzaro's, Grandma, Meisha, and just us.

Fountains and summer fun

On Friday we went to the Gateway with the Catenzaro's. Of course neither Tyler or Aria were that interested in the fountains, even though it was 100 degrees outside. We have made a few trips to the fountains this summer and for some reason Tyler just doesn't care for it. This is a total shock to me, because at home he is constantly playing in the water and getting wet. But oh well I guess..Gina and I did get some shopping in, which is always a plus.

I haven't been that great about blogging since we've been living with the in laws..mainly because everything is chaotic. I don't know where half my stuff is, we don't have our computer set up so I don't have all my pics, and we can't get the wireless to work on the laptop. It's so frustrating living in transition, but hopefully that will be over soon, only two more months. So here are some pics of the random things we have been doing this summer. Tyler spends every day outside..for as long as we will allow and even that doesn't seem to be enough for him. He likes to help Grandma and Grandpa with projects. They have been working on their fence as well as putting pavers in, and of course Tyler has to be right there. He also likes to spend time riding his new tricycle and Chance's tractor, or 4 wheeling with uncle Mike. We are hoping to go camping over Labor day and ride more 4 wheelers..but we'll see. Anyway we hope you are all enjoying your summer as well..and trying to stay as cool as possible.
