Good times with cousins

A big highlight of our summer is spending time with cousins.
We wish we all lived closer.

Ty and Jill
Kevin and Ty hanging out playing Playstation. With so many sisters and girl cousins all around, the boys have to stick together.
Ambri, Sydney, Megan, and Holly
A favorite pasttime, swimming in Grandma H's pool as much as possible.
Holly, Seth, and Megan

Eating at the mall is always fun; don't they look like they're having fun? =)

Holly, Alex, Megan, Kevin, Henry, and Andrew

Too much eating at the mall, it'll do weird things to your eyes (notice Megan's eyes)

Gotta love the trampoline

Ambri and Holly both lost a tooth on the same day. Here they are with their teeth. For those of us with weak stomachs, I say ewww!!!! (I can't handle loose teeth.)

And more swimming

Austin and KevinKalie and Teryn - love the goggles.

Wow!! Lots of summer fun in July

This month has been so great. We were so lucky to have our family here with us for the first two weeks of July to celebrate Megan's baptism. We really had a memorable time. The last two weeks of July we spent in California; it was so awesome. We have made lots of good memories this month. It's going to take me some time to write about everything so, I thought I would start at the beginning with our trek to Timpanogos Cave. I and my three girls went with my mom, my sister Amy, her husband Troy, and their three kids, and some of Troy's siblings and their kids. It was a treacherous but amazing experience. There were times when I didn't think I was going to make it up to the cave, but once inside the cave, it was seriously cool and well worth the previous pain I had experienced.

The girls were freezing inside the cave. I thought it was a welcome coolness compared to the 100 degrees outside.
At this point, we were so relieved to be at the cave opening.

This was on the trek down. We thought going down would be easier. It was a lot faster, but a killer on the toes. It was so steep going down we couldn't believe we had actually walked up it.

Megan's Baptism

Megan was baptized on her birthday, July 5th. It was such a special day. She was both nervous and excited and she looked beautiful. She told me after she was baptized, that she felt like a different person. We are so proud of Megan that she made the decision to be baptized. We are so grateful for the support of our many family members that traveled various miles to support Megan on her special day. We love you Megan!!!
