Our summer

We have had a crazy summer as you may have guessed from the lack of posts.  But it's not entirely my fault.  The only working computer we have goes to work everyday with Ryan.  But any how, here are a few pictures from our summer!

After Travis left on his mission, we decided to have one last outing with Boston's "other uncle" Jon.  So we all went to the zoo and had a blast even though these animals ended up with Boston's football thanks to Dusty:)  It was pretty funny!

Our next adventure was a family vacation to Disneyland.  These two characters are Boston's favorite so he was in heaven!

And what's Disneyland without seeing Mickey?

After Disneyland we headed over to San Diego and met these cuties there.

We got to ride these around Mission Bay and it was a blast!  They are so easy to maneuver around.  While we were there Dan and Brit announced that they are having a baby in Feb!  Congrats you guys!  We love you!

While Ryan was in Lake Powell Boston started swimming lessons with his little friend Remy.  It was so much fun (for me anyways) to get to hang out with Kaylee and her cute little family everyday for a couple of weeks.  Boston on the other hand had his days of enjoyment in the water but most of the time wasn't exactly thrilled to be at lessons...see pictures'll see what I mean.  He would rather be at grandma's pool and doing whatever he wants!  Selene and Carter were the spectators.  Isn't Selene just angelic?  I wouldn't be opposed to them being married one day:)

This picture cracks me up.  This is usually how it was.  Boston sitting in the water refusing to do what the rest of the class is doing and Remy (in the green) running around in her own little world.

Doesn't he look thrilled?  For a while I thought I was wasting my money but by the end he actually did become a lot braver than I thought he would.  He now will dunk his face under the water and actually laughs when he gets splashed and he even jumped off the diving board at his grandma's house.  So all in all I think it was a success!

Then August came and we went to the fair and saw all the little goats and lambs and horses and cows.  Boston and Carter loved seeing all the animals!

Then one weekend my family decided to go for a little overnight camping trip.  So we drove up to Mantua to find that the campground was full.  But thanks to Taron and Melanie for letting us use their property we were able to still camp.  It probably was the funnest we've ever had camping.  We brought up the kanacks and rode around the lake, then went back to the campsite and had dinner and played games and just had fun being with family!

This is Boston's last day being 2 and Carter's last day before turning 1!  Aren't they just so dang cute?

The happy birthday boys!

All of the boys' fun gifts

Boston doesn't really know who Spiderman is, but one day we made mac and cheese and there was a picture of spiderman on the box and since then all he wanted was a spiderman birthday.  So my artist husband drew the design with a toothpick and I colored it in.  And we thought a number one cake was fitting for Carter.  They turned out pretty cute huh?

This series of pictures cracks me up!  Am I gonna get in trouble for touching the cake?

Oooh that's kinda squishy...

I'm still not getting in trouble?

This is kinda fun...

pretty much demolished!  Way to go Carter!  He wasn't scared at all.  He loved every minute of it!

Boston and Carter enjoying all of their gifts.

I am the luckiest woman alive to be so privileged to be these two little boys' mom.  I love them SO much and just can't imagine my life without them.  It was kind of an emotional day for me because I feel like I just blinked and just like that Boston is 3 and Carter is 1.  Where did all the time go?  Thank you Boston and Carter for making my job as a mother so easy.  I love you both so much and will forever and ever!
