I know, I have been terrible at updating my blog lately and I vow to do better!!
It is definitely summer around here and we have just been busy playing and having fun!
Here's what we have been up to:
*swimming and lots of it - not much else you can do here when it is 105 degrees outside! -- tyler and matthew took their first set of swimming lessons and they were very timid at first but are now doing so much better! they will now jump off the diving board or the edge of the pool and swim to the side (with a life jacket or floaties on). they will both put their faces in and we are just working on kicking and "big arms"
*summer movie group - a bunch of girls in my neighborhood signed up for this and we go to a movie every week with the kids. a great way to get out of the heat and actually sit for a bit! the boys have loved it!
*decorating the house - got a big brown leather chair and then picked up an awesome modern green chair from target that i have been wanting. both of them went in the family room and they look great! i still have a lot of empty walls and a lot of ideas. i am just slowly picking things up now and adding a little at a time.
*scrapbooking/paper crafting - of course i have been doing some of this or actually a lot of it this last month. it just feels good to be in our house and to have my studio all set up with all my stuff in place. some fun new mm products coming out - can't wait for you all to see them!!
*thankful for family - my dad had some major surgery on his aorta a couple of weeks ago. it's a long story that i will share later but he is doing well and we are just so thankful that they caught the problem before it was too late.
*trip to utah - we just got back. i drove up with my sister-in-law and our kids last week and then our husbands flew up and met us up there. we just drove home today. spent a lot of time with family - spending time with my dad especially. went to the cars movie. hung out with loni and jessi. met some of my lifelong girlfriends - suzi, jen and jen for dinner. had lunch with friends from my old neighborhood. went to my parent's cabin for a day. went boating a couple of days with brian's family. went to the park city 4th of july parade. i have a ton of photos from the trip but i haven't uploaded them yet. will get them on here soon!
well - that's about it - our life for the past little while all summed up!!
things are good - life is good!
