We have lift off!

Elsa has been doing a few steps for several weeks but she really took off last week. Unfortunately the best video of her walking also has Greta throwing a fit in the background (and a messy room). So just ignore those things and watch her go!!
This one doesn't have as much walking but much less screaming.

While the Mammens Were Away

My sister Kayce joined her husband Taylor in DC for a week, where he was working. We took their 2 oldest for a couple days. She took her baby with her and got (I hope) a much needed break. I'm sure they had tons of fun with Lauren & Michael (check her blog for updates here). We had lots of fun with all the kids.
Watching Return of the Jedi, Axel's choice of course!


Bill and Kay (Taylor's parents) came down from PC to get the kids and we spent a fun filled afternoon with them.
The Gateway Fountain, Axel and Lulu got soaked. Greta was very cautious and only got sprinkled.
Riding Trax
Visiting Temple Square
On the 24th of July we headed up to Park City to join them at the park for Pioneer Day fun, complete with a fried chicken dinner, a great band, potato sack races, face painting and crafts.
Cute pioneer girl

Lulu's Bday

I got a text a couple days ago telling me to "blog lulu's bday!" I'm sorry I am just getting to it, it has been busy with Kayce here visiting. So here you go Lauren....
Louisa turned 3 on July 13th and we had a little party at my mom's to celebrate.
The Birthday Girl
Party hats
All the cousins and yes this is the best one
Lots of dresses, what every little girl needs.
Axel scored some sweet sunglasses from Aunt Somer & Uncle Brock
We have had lots of fun outings with the Mammens since they have been here, we spent an afternoon last week at the fountains at Liberty Park. The kids had great fun.
and at the zoo
Eleanor was there too
Horsing around
My baby is so close to walking!
And last but not least, here is a video only an aunt far away could love, it's really not great (my filming skill are lacking) but here you go.

St. George, the Fourth, and a Campfire, oh my

We headed for St. George for a few days last month. It's a great getaway, even in the summer.

Elsa loves the water

Getting shakes with Lindsey and Halle

Playing in the fountains

The 3rd at the cabin celebrating Isabelle's birthday

Sparkler fun
The 4th
Greta took charge and conducted the fireworks with her magic glow stick. She would say things like, "I did it!/ Bibbity bobbity boo!" and fireworks would go off.
We spent a day in PC at the Mammen's. Here we are making smores after dinner.

and a cute baby in a hammock.

Saturday Morning

Don't you ever just want to curl up in front of the TV with your pillow, blanket, Cinderella and pour yourself some tea? This is how I found Greta when I came upstairs.
