Scenes from our Summer

I can't believe that we are nearing the end of summer. Landon goes back to school in 2 weeks! He can hardly wait  and he keeps asking when he gets to go to 1st grade. I think this has been the hottest most humid summer we have had since we moved here, so I am starting to look forward to Fall and the cooler weather.
Here are some miscellaneous pictures from this summer. Also I did all my catch up posting tonight so you might want to check out all the new posts below this one.

Beach day!

Yesterday we went to the beach. It was so fun and the kids loved it but it was so crowded! I have to remember that Saturdays are a no go when it comes to beach days. 

We decided we need a leash for Ella. We lost her a few times and I just about had a heart attack.

Levi kept eating the sand. I though he'd taste it and realize it was nasty but not so much, oh well.


A Couple of week ago  we went to the fair with Jared's sister and her family. It was a lot of fun but hot and humid!
Oh I just remembered a sad story from the fair.  Tori is a short girl, I'd say well below average, and Ella is actually a little bit taller then Tori (probably about an inch taller ). But  I measured both girls a couple of times on different signs and they were both tall enough to ride the little kid rides. Well  at the first ride we went to they let everyone on except Tori, even though she  was supposed to be  tall enough for the ride according to the signs. Tori was crushed and it was really sad that even though she is older then Ella, Ella got to ride the ride and Tori didn't. Luckily  Tori was able to ride all the other little kid rides.

Hot and tired

Bike Ridding

Jared decided it was time for Landon to learn how to ride a bike without training wheels. I was shocked when Jared came in after 20 minutes and told Landon was ridding his bike on his own, I thought it would take a while. Landon has become a pro at ridding his bike over the past couple of weeks, I am super impressed.

4th of July

We had a really laid back 4th this  year. We went to our ward breakfast in the morning, had a BBQ for dinner and did some sparklers. When it got dark I woke Landon up and we drove around the neighborhood to see all the cool fireworks people were lighting off, he thought that was pretty great.
