Just like that!!

And, just like that the kids are back in school. 

BUT... 

Before I go there, here is how we finished out the rest of our short summer. 
We finally made it to Fairy Forest. A fun little place to visit up by Mirror Lake and Kamas. It's a baby friendly hike. Once you make it to were the Fairies are people have painted rocks, organized little homes, and set up wind chimes. We didn't this time because we just wanted to see it, but maybe next time we visit I will be more prepared. I let Eden take my phone and take pictures. 


There is a tiny lady bug rock between her feet. 


 After our "hike" we had a picnic..





Adventures are fun and scary all at the same time. I wasn't totally sure where I was going. Taking five little kids somewhere I haven't ever been can be a scary thing. We found it and had fun.. Whew!! 

Our primary summer activity is so amazing. They put a huge slip and slide on our parks hill. There is a water melon eating contest and water games. 



We got to attend our family reunion!! 










Gator had to ask for a ride in grandpa greats gorgeous red truck! 
Jeff rode most of the way home from the reunion. He had a terrible head wind, coupled with the fires so the wind was bad, it was really long and hot. We are here waiting for him. There is a tiny speck that we think is him so we took off to find him. Turns out it wasn't him so we headed back to our look out. I wasn't perfectly sure where he wanted me to wait and wasn't at the spot when he passed. I make terrible SWAG. But Ash is sure watching for him. 

This little hat is called an O2 kid lid. It is a great solution to the tender grips. While I love the fact that she doesn't have her stickers on her cheeks, this sort of pops off her head too. Maybe there is no good thing.. For now this is sort of working.. 

AND........ 
Ry and Alex started school! They have both really enjoyed being back and like their teachers. 


Eden starts later this week. Sooooo exciting.

Wow! Ry is straightening he hair! They grow up too fast. looks like you had a good summer. The kids go back on Thursday which I am so excited about! I love them, but I am ready not to be a entertainment director 15 hours a day. Maybe even brush my teeth. Wouldn't that be exciting?
