Fun Summer Night

We haven't been doing much outside during the day. It has just been so warm that the kids don't even want to go out. So, last night I wanted to get the kids out of the house. We got on our bikes and rode around a bit. Then we rode to the park and had a picnic dinner and played at the park.

It was a lot of fun for the kids. Bobby was working really late last night though. So, it was a lot of work for me. The start of the ride was rough. Evan had to be in the lead and he threw a fit whenever he wasn't. Then Dallin crashed and scraped himself up pretty good. Needless to say, there was a lot of crying and grief.

We got things smoothed out before the trip to the park though. That part was nice. Dinner was fun and playing at the park was great too. But then it was time to go home. It was dusk and we needed to make it home before dark. The boys were very agreeable and got their helmets on. But Megan wanted to stay and play.

I ended up buckling her into the bike trailer with David and hanging her bike on the back of the trailer. It was a bit of a climb on the way home too. So, I definitely got my workout for the day.

All in all it was a fun little outing.

Bear Lake

Sunday night was rough. Bobby and I stayed up REALLY late. Bobby was working on his Crestron test until all hours of the night. I new I should have gone to bed because of all that was going on the next day but I also knew that if I went to bed, Bobby would too. He doesn't like to stay up if I go to bed. So, when we finally climbed into bed at 3am, Megan decided that she needed to wake up. Then Evan had a bad dream. Needless to say, we were really tired when 7:00 rolled around and we were supposed to be getting up.

But we got up and going because we went to Bear Lake for Bobby's company party. It was a lot of fun. We got to go out on a boat and play around on the water. Evan and Dallin loved being pulled in the tube.

Bobby and I got a chance to go out on a wave runner. It was so cool. I even got to drive. :) WooHoo!! They are fun toys.

So, with all of the fun we had and the little sleep we got the night before, our beds looked very nice last night when we got home. Thankfully, all of the kids slept through the night. Today has been just trying to get back to a schedule. I don't think my kids remember what a schedule is. Wish me luck.

Visiting Grandma and Grandpa on the Farm

What fun we had last week. At least the beginning of the week. :) It has been an adventure to say the least. Bobby went to Texas for a Crestron training for the week. So, not wanting to be home alone, I packed up the kids and we went to Grandma and Grandpa Dastrups.

My parents have been getting little baby chicks and goats and kittens, so the kids had a bast playing with and feeding them. They were outside all day every day. I didn't take pics of them with the animals. I figured I had more time than we ended up with. I did get pics of how dirty they got playing outside.

Then on Wednesday night Dallin gave me a scare by very suddenly coming down with pneumonia. I was concerned about the health of my Grandma Dastrup, so I started packing at 3:00 in the am and headed out. On the way back home, we stopped by Bobby's parents' to give Dallin a blessing and they wouldn't have me going home to deal with this sickness all by myself. So, we finished off the week at their home.

Oh, and Megan developed cellulitis from some mosquito bites she got in Sigurd too. It was a real vacation. But now we're back and Bobby is home. Yay!! Dallin is much better and so is Megan. All has ended well.
