Work is over let the summer vacation begin
On the 4th of July we went to the zoo
She is excited I promise ;)
We saw elephants including baby Zuri
It was the first time I had ever seen a Wolf at the zoo.
How do we measure up?
He isn't going to eat you
Taking a dinosaur ride at the zoo with the whole fam.
Our cute fam ;)
Then we went to Delta
For horseback riding
And the Backer family reunion which Emabelle mostly slept through.
Trying out Grandpas new hat.
Then some shenanigans at home
The Dorito Mermaid
We went to the parade of homes and saw the up House
It was very detailed
Then it was off to Panguitch
We saw some things we hadn't before... Not even at the zoo.
Hung out in cousin Sophies Buzz Lightyear chair. She was very nice to share
Daddy got a milkshake and Em got the cup
First trip through the cave.
Oh yes I remember...OW
hangin out one leg warmer on one leg warmer off.
With cousin Parker.... That's my trailer in the background.
Time to go home.... So tired. Vacation started and ended with a nap.
But summer didn't end there.
Grandpa bought an Argo. This six wheeler duly named the TANK and we took it camping a few times this summer. Emabelle fell right to sleep on her ride.
We went to Sopestone with my mom and Shay and Emily and Merret and Mindy a few times...Sadly I appear to have taken a camera vacation this summer so I don't have all of the adventures on camera.
At work Em and Luke have been able to spend more time together.
Playing and Napping
Look Mommy Just my size
I get to take Luke and Emabelle on walks often we go to the temple.
We started eating foods this summer, Carrots are our fave!
We went to St. George to see my cousin Willy leave on a mission and to see My other cousin bless her baby Katie. This is Emabelle and Katie hanging out naked cause it's hot in St. George.
In September, I know hardly summer but still, We had the Bolin family reunion complete with............
