Summer Happenings

We are going to be headed back to school in just over 4 weeks.  I can't believe the summer has gone by so quickly, but in a way, I'm ready for the boys to go back to school.  I think they are both excited as well.  We've stayed very busy this summer and have been out and about doing a lot.

Here are some of the things we have done:

  • Swimming:  We've gone swimming at the outdoor Lehi pool a couple times, the indoor pool, at Aunt Avry's pool in Syracuse, and Cowabunga Bay
  • Crafting:  We've done all sorts of coloring, crafts and even made a water wall on our fence one day.  I made quiet boxes for the boys for each day of the week and replenish them on a regular basis.  They really look forward to the ones that have crafts in them.
  • Thanksgiving Point:  We have a membership to Thanksgiving Point and have been there countless times this summer.  We've spent a lot of time at Farm Country and The Children's Gardens in particular.
  • Movies:  We've done some of the summer movie series at the local Cinemark.  We've also gone to see Monsters University and Despicable Me 2, both of which were really great films.
  • Discovery Gateway:  I also bought a 3 person pass up to Discovery Gateway Children's Museum in Salt Lake.  We've been a couple of times so it's already paid for itself.  While we are up there, we go play in the fountains at the Olympic Plaza.
  • Tennis Courts:  We go to the tennis courts sometimes in the evenings.  The boys take their bikes and Marshall practices hitting with Chandler.  Chan has a pretty goo swing on him!
  • Friends:  We've also gotten together with friends for playdates and have had fun with our blowup slides in the yard.

We have 2 family reunions and a few more weeks of playing before we head back to school.  It's definitely been a fun summer so far!

It looks like such a fun summer! I am floored that school is so close too, I swear we JUST got out. You look wonderful, and I can't wait to see pictures of sweet Nova when she comes!
