I admit, I have a lot of catch up to do. After a while of not blogging it gets harder to start up again because there is so much to write about and it is hard to choose what to highlight. So I have decided to give a quick update in order to get me caught up and back into the blog habit. I am going to do it number style with pictures and a quick update, here we go!
1. FAMILY PICTURES
We went to goblin valley with my family and took family pictures while we were there. They turned out pretty well considering we put our own camera on a tripod and used a timer. First is a picture of the whole family and second is our own little family. The third picture is after hiking around goblin valley and playing sardines for a few hours. We had a great time!
We also went to Idaho and took family pictures with Ben's family. I hope they also turned out well but I have not seen them yet.
2. LANDSCAPE CLASS AND PROJECT
The most time consuming thing in my life right now is the landscape design class I am taking through independent study that is due in three weeks. The picture is a design that I drew that I know is not the best picture but you might be able to get an idea of what a design looks like. I am currently designing my parents yard and the exciting part is that they are following through with some of the plans in the back yard. We have added a sidewalk and flower beds around the perimeter of the yard. It looks really good even though it is still a work in progress!
3. HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!
On the 4th we went to the parade in the morning after having breakfast at my uncle's house. We spent the day swimming at my parents playing sharks and minnows and marco polo. Later we had a parade that was VERY exciting and well attended:) (In these pictures you can see the back yard and some of the landscaping in the back) The kids enjoyed throwing the salt water taffy Ben bought for the parade.
4. JUMPIN JACKS
We went on a family date to a place called jumpin jacks that is full of inflateable houses and slides. The boys had lots of fun. Ben and I enjoyed it as well but we got tired faster then they did.
Hopefully I will now be better at remaining current on my blog. I hope you are having a great summer!
