24th of July

We had a busy but fun 24th of July. We had a family reunion with Casey's family and had a full day full of activities. We started off by going up to a park and letting the kids play. Later, we went to his Aunt's house and had lunch and play games. Luckly we live close by, and were able to run home for a few hours and let Gavin take a nap (I might have took one too...haha). That evening we had dinner at Floyd and Barbara's and sat around and played games and talked. Casey made the Root Beer and everyone loved it. It was gone fast! Later we watched the fireworks. Gavin loved watching the fireworks. He would sit so good and clap at the ones he really liked.

Stylish Boy

It has been a while since I have posted about Gavin. We have this little tuxedo that Damon wore at my wedding. Gavin fits in it now, so I had to takes some pictures. He looked so handsome all dressed up.

Bear Lake

We had a great trip up to Bear Lake. We stayed in my parent's condos right on the lake. We had the whole family up there, which was fun. It has been over 2 years (maybe even longer) since we have taken a family trip with EVERYONE. We didn't actually make it out on the lake because of boat problems, but we had fun doing other things. Probably the most fun thing we did was we went biking. They have these funny looking bikes called Suri's. We were in the large one that holds 4 adults and 2 kids. We had fun racing each other. We had a lot of fun swimming, playing Wii, watching movies, eating. Poor Casey could have had a better time, except he was dealing with a tooth ache the whole time. As soon as we got home, we called the dentist (luckly, he is Casey's uncle), and we went to see him, and Casey had to get a root canal done. Other then that, it was a great trip!

Gavin loved sitting up front.
Taking a was pretty easy for me, because I think I was doing less because I had Casey, Doug and Autumn to pull the load...lucky me. I didn't get a picture of Logan on his "tricycle". But he had a fun bike that went fast.
Casey loves making Root Beer, we almost drank this whole container during the trip. It was so good.
Gavin and I swimming in the indoor pool. He had fun going from pool to pool.

Look at that view. Bear Lake is so pretty.

Happy 4th!

I love the 4t h of July. I love it because it is a relaxing day and I get to be with family. We woke up really early and went down to Provo for the Balloon Festival. We got there at 6:30 to watch them blow up the balloons. Gavin was fascinated by what was going on. His eyes were glued to the balloons the whole time.

After the balloons lift off the ground, we sit around eat breakfast and watch the balloons compete. They have to fly back to the field and throw beanbags down on an X.

Later that evening we went to Casey's parent's for a BBQ and visit with family. Floyd used his new barbecuer and the food was great.
One of Gavin's favorite things is to climb on things. He found this little chair and kept climbing up into it.

After dinner, we headed to the Jr. High and saw the fireworks. It was a great show. Gavin really liked watching them.

I thought this was cute, Gavin and Preston climbed in this chair together on their own.
