Summer Running Club

 This will be the 2nd year that our friend, and BYU runner, Laura Turner, has put on a summer running club. Every Tuesday all the kids in the ward meet at 10am to run for 30 minutes, and then she has some instruction and races after that. I love it, cuz I get to exercise, and I also love it because it teaches our kids to exercise and preps them/introduces them to track activities later in life. Of all the kids, I'd have to say that Owen loves it the most and pushes his other friends to run a TON of laps. Sidney has picked up the habit and loves running at school now too. Its great to have friends that motivate us.

Sarah and Michelle/kids come to visit!

 We were so happy when Sarah decided to come visit and talked Michelle into coming too! It was great to have cousins to play with! They didn't stay very long, but we crammed as much as we could into the weekend. Hikes, treats, and even the General Womens Meeting on Saturday night.

August Fun - 2016

 South Lake Ward Campout at Cascade Park. Can't beat hanging out with friends until all hours of the night!

 An Ainsley meltdown.

 Our only pictures from Packard Palooza fun. Stayed up until 3 or 4? We did a little TPing of houses at 2 in the morning. It was the boys first time and they loved it. Who doesn't? :) 

 Owen rocking the cub scout scene.

 Happy Birthday Nate! I think he's 33!?!! Aaaaah, that means I'm 33 soon...

End of July 2016

Pilchuck Park in Snohomish. Gotta love that smile. Oh my gosh, you're a cutie Ainsley.

We love watching the Olympics! Go USA - you da best!
Traditional Blue Angel Picnic dinner in Seattle. The day was a little chillier than we've had before, so the kids didn't last quite as long in the water. And I certainly didn't get in at all! I'm getting to be a wimp when it comes to being cold...
