Huck Finn Days

We love Huck Finn Days during Pleasant Grove's Strawberry Days Festivals. Gavin loves fish, so this is the highlight of the year!

When it was time to bring in all the fishing poles, and go out to catch the fish with nets, this is what Gavin looked like most of the time. He would get so frustrated he wasn't catching a fish. Some nice girl told him she would catch a fish for him, and that calmed him down.
This is his face when this sweet girl brought him the fish she caught. After becoming attatched to this (dead) fish, Gavin decided he didn't want to eat it. He'd go check on it constantly, and finally when it started stinking, he said it was okay to throw it away. This fish lived a very satisfying life making a 4 year old boy very happy.

Viva Las Begas

We went to "Las Begas" (as Gavin says it) last week. We spent most of the time there in our swim suits hanging out at the pool. We did visit the strip once, but almost died of the 105 degree weather, so we tried to stay by the pool as much as possible!

They had a lot of different pools. We mostly played at a smaller pool that was empty most of the time, but we did spend time at the big pool, where there was a large kiddie area, the kiddie pool and MY favorite, there was a lazy river. I could spend hours there riding around on the tubes! Gavin learned to swim (with his floaties) on this trip, and so that made it so much fun seeing him bobbing out in the water.

Our visit to the strip. We always have to see the Bellagio.

Thanks to my wonderful parents for having so much patience with my whining kids this trip!
LOVE the fountains!
In the Bellagio they have the biggest chocolate fountain that was pretty neat to see. We enjoyed a chocolate crepe there.
We visited an aquarium which was a big hit for these boys.

Ditching yardwork

One Saturday afternoon, we were planning on working in the yard, but we ditched that and enjoyed the afternoon at Thanksgiving Point Gardens. A much better afternoon then yardwork!

I love these pictures of Gavin and Kyson. The lighting sadly isn't so great, but I love how you can see how much they do love each other.

Rolling around

Here is a funny game I have seen Kyson and Gavin do lately. They like to get in their blankets and roll around the grass. I don't get it, but apparently it is pretty fun.

Gavin's job

Gavin has a new job...vacuuming. I love it, he loves it. While I am going around mopping the kitchen, or picking up toys, making beds, etc. he is vacuuming! It has cut my cleaning time down about a half an hour! I love his little side-kick following him around with his little vacuum.
