So it has been a really long time since I have posted anything and to be honest I had kind of given up on blogging completely because I think who really wants to see what we are doing. The funny thing is I still occasionally visit other people's blogs and think how fun it is to see what everyone else is up to. Anyway I had a conversation the other day and was informed that I can download my blog and make it into a sort of photo journal so even if no one else cares what my family is up to, it is a good way of keeping a record of our lives. I can't say that I will still be great at keeping up, but I do think I am going to try a little harder to update more than once every 8 months. So here is what we have been up to from May till today! Some of the pictures in the slide show speak for themselves but below is a list of some of the things we have done since May!
-We went to Arizona to visit Kimber, Jason and Gracie for the second time this year. It was so awesome because we left snow for 90 degree weather.
-Brock was in the school play, he was Prince Escalus in Romeo and Juliet and he rocked! I actually signed him up for a theater camp this summer because he was so good (only biased a little!)
-The boys played ball, this was Aidans 1st year and it was a little torturous for all of us. We actually had to threaten that he couldn't have the treat at the end unless he actually stayed on his feet, didn't play in the dirt and didn't get lapped by the other players when running the bases. So one time, instead of running faster around the bases to avoid being lapped, he just hit first, rounded around the pitchers mound and went straight to home. So much for 2nd and third bases.
-We had a party to celebrate Tiff's last chemo treatment. Everyone wore their Dancers against cancer shirts and we had a barbeque and all took a chance to tell tiff what we loved about her. It was a great night and we are so glad that at least the chemo and radiation treatments are behind her.
-We also had fun at Strawberry Days and hit the pool several times!
-June 15th we celebrated Olivia's 1st Birthday, I cant believe how fast the last year has gone.
-Carson turned 8 in May so he was also baptized and confirmed in June.
All in all, June was crazy busy!
-On the 4th we had a fun barbeque with Grandma and Grandpa Ormond where the kids ran through the sprinklers and then later we went to watch the stadium of fire fireworks on the lawn at Provo High School.
-This past week we went camping on the Skyline up Fairview Canyon for the Green Family reunion where we four-wheeled, shot skeet, the boys hunted birds and squirrels with their B-B guns and Olivia played with rocks and ate dirt most of the time!
-Finally,the boys and I just got back from hanging out with the Ormond family at Snowbird. Wayne's mom and dad have a time share and let each family come up and stay overnight. We had a great time swimming and hanging out with the cousins. The only bad part is that poor Wayne is in the Uintah's on a 50 mile hike with the scouts so he had to miss out on the fun!
-So that is our summer so far, one more family reunion and a trip to Chicago and pretty much we will call it a summer and I will head back to work!
