The What? of July

I know were pushing the end of July, but I also know I'm not the last one to post about the 4th so.... Whatever It's on the "to do" list (check)

We had a great holiday Allie loves all the people, fireworks and running around crazy. She thinks it's great fun so.....

We started off the weekend a little early and headed up to the Rexburg splash park(or as I now call it the soak park). Rexburg defiantly does not have a problem with there water pressure,and it's freezing! The girls had fun, but as you can see Allie really didn't get all that wet. Slapping the water was about it.

I did try to get her to go down one of the water slides. It was to no avail she stood at the top of the stairs and cried, so I had to go rescue her. That is why I call it the "soak park". I stepped one foot on to that thing and I was drenched.

We were all exhausted and it wasn't even the 4th yet.

We started off the day at the parade with friends and then headed to a another friends house for food ,fun, and games. It was so much fun but by late afternoon I really couldn't keep my eyes open. So we headed home for a little snooze.

Later we hopped the fence to the bishops house to watch some fireworks! It's so nice, our bishop does some pretty good fireworks and invites the ward. When it starts to get a little too late we just take Allie home and we can still watch from our back porch. You gotta love convenience.

So this next picture is a little weird. We have early church so I headed home with Allie and decided if we were going to make it to church the next day we better get the shower out of the way. Allie got two glow sticks at the party and when it was time to get in the shower didn't want to give them up. I figured what the heck pick your battles. I turned out the lights and left the door cracked so we could see. She had a blast and thought it was so much fun. Then while drying off I hear... uh, oh, mommy! I looked down to see the drain glowing. Ha! to funny I had to take a picture. Allies response when I asked her what we were going to do?.........

"daddy fix it.... DADDY!"

Went by in a flash! I think out of the four weekends in June about 3 &1/2 were spent in Utah. The back and forth was a bit crazy! To start things off on the 1st we had our 7 year anniversary! Sorry the pictures aren't great they are pictures of pictures. N E way we spent that weekend in Utah because we also had my moms graduation.

My mom is amazing! She hadn't gone to school in over 30 years and she had the courage to go back. She graduated from a medical assisting program. Everyone tells me I look like her( witch I usually try to take a complement). But I hope and pray I got some of her strength as well!

We had the Price girls over for a day and Allie had a ball. Now I really think I want another girl. They played all day so nice, and they loved Allies little salon set-up. They also had fun washing all of Allie cars and bikes.

I know some of you will cringe at some of the next pictures.... but the kids had a great time and we did have a talk about guns. So think what you will but I just wanted to assure you that we are very careful. Allie was so funny when it was her turn to "help" dad she got right up there. When Todd told her to go SHE WENT!! She kept pulling the trigger as fast as she could. I got my camera turned to video just in time for the ammo to run out. dang! oh well! Most of you know Jessica and Travis they are in a lot of our pics. If you don't that's who is in the pictures with us. They are great friends, there kids are Traesen and Maycee. We commented on the way home that "that was a fun little family outing". That's what they are FAMILY!

Allie and Mayc hand and hand...... Allie "helping" daddy

Trae...just one of the guys The fam! No I'm not prego! I just had my jacket caught up under Allie.
We went down to Utah on the 16th for a quick trip. My nephew Seth was Baptised I didn't get pictures there because my sis-in-law is a photographer and I let her do the work. I do need to ask for some pictures though.

We had 3 days were Allie refused to nap. I think the photo says the rest. What you don't see is that two seconds before I took this picture Allie told me she wanted her pull-up back on. I took the picture, turned to put the camera down, heard I need to go potty, and turned just in time to see her peeing in her bed! I felt so bad. She tried to worn me! Us moms just don't listen some times.

We headed to Lava Hotspirings on Saturday morning the 27th to meet up with Trav and Jess. They were camping near by and we played in the water all day. Of course we forgot the camera in the car so no pics there. After swimming we went back up to the campers for some dinner. We went on a beautiful little hike and these are a few of the pictures. While we were hiking a few of the others went on the four wheelers to go shooting. The picture of Allie and Traesen was not posed. I told them to let me take a picture and this is what I got. He is so funny he tells me all the time that he is going to marry Allie in the Temple some day. TO CUTE it totally looks like a little engagement picture.

Well that's about it!! There was defiantly a million things in between, but this is getting a little long. I guess you can't do it all, maybe if I posted a little more often. I'll work on that but I have a filling July is going to be even more busy and I'm sure a lot of fun.
