I have some catching up to do. Let's start with the end of season t-ball party we had at our house last weekend. 

We had a slip and slide, ice cream sandwiches, Davey probably got a concussion by doing a belly flop into the kiddie pool, and ended it all with trophies for the kids.

 We had a BBQ at my  mom's last Sunday that was quite divine. We had grilled mahi mahi, ribs, chicken, and corn on the cob. The kids played in a kiddie pool out back while the rest of us chit-chatted and relaxed in the air conditioning.

Then... Kip and Britney were married on Wednesday. We took the kids and wandered around temple square in Salt Lake; it was a gorgeous day. I never think to go there in the summer but now I want to do it more often.

Robyn has been in town with the kids for a few weeks escaping the heat of La Quinta, California. They came over this afternoon for some slip and slide fun. The cousins have so much fun together, even when they don't see each other more than once or twice a year.

Life gets back to normal (whatever that means) in 3 weeks. In the meantime, It's been crazy trying to squeeze fun things in here and there. All that matters is that we're managing to do it... we're managing.
