Summer Catch Up

Wow- It has been forever since we posted - We've had lots of summer fun! Not much is new with us. Paige started a new job at the hospital - in the Quality Department. She works with policies and surveys in the hospital.

We are playing the waiting game with adoption. We are approved and just waiting to be chosen. All is well with us, and we hope that you are all enjoying your summer!

Lake Powell

In June - for my birthday - we went to Lake Powell with our friends Blair and Vanessa. Besides the dive of a motel - we had a BLAST!

4th of July

We spent the 4th of July in Minersville with Nick's family. His Mom's sisters came - it is always a blast when we are together! Lots of family from up north, and Milford. His aunt and cousin's family came from Texas, and his cousin from Colorado made it as well! We were so excited to see everyone! It has been a few years since we've been together!

Of course the morning started out with the traditional bombs - and then a parade down main street - our nieces Tylee and Shakell and our nephews Kaden and Gus were in the Parade. After the Parade we went to the Minersville Program - which is an hour program about the history of the town. This year Nick's little sister Ashley and her husband Devin danced in the program - it was hilarious! They did a great job!

Of course no Minersville celebration is complete without a BBQ, 4-wheeler rides, lots of visiting, and fireworks. We had a great 4th of July - and it was so fun to spend it with some of Nick's extended family.

Paige's Family Vacation

We headed home Saturday night following the fireworks in Minersville - so that we could attend the blessing of Troy and Andrea's little addition - Camrie. It was a great blessing! Following the blessing we headed up to Salt Lake to spend some time with Paige's family.

Monday we spent the entire day at Lagoon! It was so fun to see Mike (Paige's Brother) and his wife Summer! We haven't seen them in forever! We rode so many fun rides - and just hung-out in the sun!

Monday night we drove to Park City - and stayed in a time share up there - it was super nice! Tuesday we headed to the Oquirrh Mountain Temple open house - it was so pretty -and a fun experience. The rest of the day we just hung out at the time share.

Wednesday we headed home - but no trip is complete without a stop at Cheesecake Factory - Paige's favorite! It was so sad to be done with our little vacation! We miss Mike and Summer so much!! - We can't wait to see them again!

We also stopped on the way home to see Paige's best friend Julie - and her new house! It was so fun to hang with Julie for a couple of hours - she cracks us right up! Her new house is so cute -and her little boy Boston - is so cute -even though he hates us!

I can't believe you were in Farmington and didn't even call or let us know you were nearby? Just kidding, glad you are having a wonderful summer!

Glad you guys had so much fun, but our little street was very lonesome without you gone. I think we need to do Lagoon in the fall since we missed our annual trip this year.
