Summer Fun

Summer is always so full of fun! This post shows just a bit of what's gone on the past few weeks. We have enjoyed time at...


HOME

This is what happens when you are spending all day in your swimsuit... you come in, take it off, don't have the energy to go upstairs and change, so you lay on the school table to watch a movie (netflix on the comp) and then... you just can't keep your eyes open any longer... I love it!




Folsom Aquatic Center
The place is awesome! It has huge pools, little kids areas, high dives, water slides and so much... plus it only cost our entire family $24 to go there! Plus it was an extra treat to have Kristen, Baby Mike and Taylor there with us. Everything is more fun with friends and we are so glad they came with us. Especially since Kristen went in the water with the little ones and I got to hold the baby. :)









If you knew how terrified Kenyon used to be of the water you would realize this is a huge deal
And this is even huger!





Grandpa & Grandma's House

We always have fun at Grandmas house but holidays are even more fun than regular visits. You get to see more family, have more fun and sometimes we even get to spend the night. We had a great 4th of July weekend there and I wish I had more pictures but my flash is broken so I can't take pictures inside (unless it is super well lit) or in the evening.


Notice my son has a 6 pack...


Daddy Adventures

Recentely our family went on an outing to the great outdoors with mom and we were reminded how important it is for us to keep the adventures to dad. So while mom was away with her sister for a weekend Dad took the kids on a much needed Daddy Adventure! I have no idea how Kyle finds these random places and why it is worth it to go them with 5 kids in tow but I am so glad he does. They all had a blast and only 3 people came home with poison oak.

Kyle searched online for cool waterfalls close by and heard about a really cool one... but would he make it with all the kids and return home with all of them as well....

The adventure begins...

And not too long after they took off hiking they found this...




And yes, they all made it home safe and sound and I even came home to a mostly clean home! Way to go dad... you are the best!
And summer, please don't end too soon... we love you!

That pool sounds like super fun! Kyle is such a great dad to take all 5 of your crazies on that hike. I'm sure it was totally worth it. What a beautiful waterfall!

Amy and Family said...

Grandma Jenny, the aquatic center would be great for the reunion although we would have to be careful not to lose kids. :) And the waterfall was about 25 minutes past Placerville somewhere... it was a lot bigger than those pictures make it look. :)

These pictures are adorable, but I just want to suggest that you take the naked picture of your daughter off of this page. It is public, and there are some real perverts out there. You can never be too careful:)

(I found it searching for Folsom Aquatic Center pictures for work.)
