Two hours before today's showing....



Show time! 



 It's always a nice surprise when they show up nearly 20 minutes early too. 
 Last week someone showed up 20 minutes late. Normally they schedule an hour per showing; this time they scheduled two hours. During nap time. I got home after an insane few hours with crazy grouchy kids, dropped the shopping bags, turned a show on for the kids downstairs, and sat on the couch to breath. Knock, knock. I totally bawled and packed the kids back in the car. This is a long and stressful process!! We're not in a hurry to move, but I'm so over having to get the house in showing condition!

I made some peach cobbler tonight for dessert. The kids hated it, to put it nicely. More for me!!

We went camping yesterday and came home today. It's so much work, but awesome when we get there! I love our family. We're a mess. A walking disaster every where we go. Within minutes of arriving at our camp site Fisher got several stings from a bee; it even got in the knee hole. Jackson had to check it out (Fisher hadn't even made it near us yet, probably 5 seconds after Fish was stung). Well, he got stung. He screamed and cried EVERY time he saw bee.... there were lots of them too. I thought it would be weird not having a fire, but it was actually quite awesome! Now on to watch day 1 of the Olympics!

Today we went to this lake/beach (?) area with my sister-in-law and her sisters. It was a great area. I love finding new and cheap stuff to do!!! We had to leave early though cause I had a hair appt. My kids gave me an ear full about that. Thanks again for inviting us Megan!

I tried something new today. I filled up a container half with water, froze it, added a dollar store toy, then froze more water over it. I thought the kids would have fun trying to crack it open. Well, after two swings by Jackson, the prize was retrieved. Fail. Oh well. Maybe I shouldn't have let them use a hammer. It was a fun 5 seconds! hahaha!!

After a little lazy morning (yay!) we headed up to Alpine for a bbq and fun at the splash park. I hope your Pioneer Day was great! I am so grateful for the pioneers and their faith, sacrifice, and example.

I'm not sure how I managed to NOT go grocery shopping for two weeks. $200 later, the fridge is jam packed. I shouldn't wait that long again. Lesson learned.

Tonight we went and played up the canyon while Taylor looked for elk. So nice. MmmmHmmmm!


 If these kids aren't gorgeous, I'm not sure who is.

Picture OVERLOAD!
What a busy day we had! We had a few showings (starting during nap time.... again; ugh!) so we decided to make a day out of it. We got the house in showing condition, then left for the day. We made a small hike up to a waterfall in Pleasant Grove. We stayed a lot longer than I thought we would. We were in no rush. We just lived it up! I love our family! 








After a quick stop for Sonic's happy hour, we went to the driving range. The kids had a ball!! The clouds made it wonderful too!






 We went to Kenadee's second grade teacher's wedding reception. It happens that Taylor went to school with her husband! Kenadee has been counting down the days to see her. 

 To round the day off, we went to the Owlz baseball game. Taylor got tickets from work for $1. The ticket came with a voucher for a hot dog and drink. It was surprisingly SO much fun. It was awesome to do something different!






We all really needed this day. The whole day together!! I love US!
