I haven't posted for awhile because I didn't think anything interesting was happening, but when I was looking through our pictures I realized we've been busier than I thought. When we got back from our trip we went hiking, shooting, and fishing with some friends. It's so beautiful in the mountains it's hard to believe we're in Arizona.
The kids have been doing a lot of swimming, and Alyssa's hair has actually turned green. I was hoping it would wash out, but it hasn't yet. Hopefully it will fade before school starts.
Then we went to our stake pioneer day and the kids had a lot of fun riding on hay rides, playing in the water, eating lunch and having 3 snow cones each. Christian was very worried they were going to cost money, but when they found out the snow cones were free, they went crazy.
Yesterday was Christian's birthday, and I don't have pictures of his party because Scott took the camera with him to work. He wanted to have a Wii party, so that's what we did. He had eight little boys over and they played games and had cupcakes. Easiest birthday party ever. I felt guilty it was so easy.
Scott had the weekend off and school starts next week, so we took advantage of the freedom and went camping. As we're getting in the car I asked Scott if there are bathrooms at the spot he was taking us. He gives me a 'duh' look and says no. I replied I didn't mean showers or anything, just toilets. He just looked at me. Port-a-potties? Nope. As we're driving the two hours away, I realize maybe there's no water. Nope. Good thing we were only staying one night.
Anyway, it was absolutely gorgeous where we were and it didn't matter that we used trees for bathrooms because we had the mountain to ourselves. The stars were amazing and we saw three shooting stars. I can't describe how dirty Alivia got, and you can't really tell from the picture, but believe me, she was.
Hope you are all enjoying the last part of summer as much as we are!
