Foto Friday: July 2012


We said farewell to all of our kittens on the 4th of July. They were truly a delight. But it was time to share them with others.
  

The fourth of July started with a Town Siren waking up the townsfolk for the early morning Fireman's breakfast. Leif had surprised me the might before and drove home arriving after the kids were in bed. So we had a heavenly evening together and was not about to wake the kiddos early to go to breakfast. So we let them slowly wake up and went to the parade together. In the meantime we were called to go with the Ambulance to help with a wild fire out on Cedar Mountain. Unfortunately we didn't get to go. But it got us itching to get out of town. So we packed up and went to Alton with family for several days. It was WONDERFUL! No fireworks... But a lot of R&R :)

Ten days later,  I packed the kids up and took them to Flagstaff to visit Leif. One of the roommates in the house moved out and the room was open for two weeks. We rented it and stayed for ten days. It was more then I had hoped for!! It was beautiful! And so fun! The kids spent the first week in a Gymnastics Summer Camp. The second week we visited a lot of parks and met some friends. I also had a dear friend and her family come to visit from Chandler. It was SOO fun to visit after 7 years. Such a great time!! Leif and I celebrated our 9th Wedding Anniversary and we celebrated JJ's 2nd Birthday. It was So Nice to be together as a family!!

WRITTEN THE DAY AFTER GETTING HOME:

Weeerrre Baaack!  We are home from Flagstaff after a wonderful two week getaway.  I didn't blog while I was there. So now I have to try and think back on the highlights. But don't worry, I don't feel like being long winded or writing a travel log. Let's do bullet points instead and see what we come up with.

We put Jakob and Caleb in a Summer Camp at the Flagstaff Gymnastics Center for the first week of our trip. They played all day on gym equipment and went on field trips to the AquaPlex for swimming and the Bearizona Animal Sanctuary. They had so much fun that they never wanted to come with me when I picked them up.
We visited several parks and playgrounds while we were there. It was so green and beautiful! The temp was under 90 the whole time. It also rained at some point every day. So we enjoyed blue skies and sunshine as well as some really neat thunder storms.
Leif and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. The kids and I decorated Leif's walls with hearts and love notes and one of Leif's classmates watched all of the boys for us so we could go out together for a few hours. She said the boys were angels. I wondered if she was talking about someone else' kids. She swore she was talking about ours.  Leif and I spent our time together at a book store called Bookmens and out to eat alone at Galaxy Diner. Those are two things that we Never get to do without the chaos of the kids company. It was nice to be together enjoying our hobbies together.
We also celebrated JJ's 2nd Birthday! The party was quick, but quick and to the point is good for 2 year olds.
I was so thrilled to be able to spend some time after 7 years with good friends that we haven't seen in way too long!! We were good friends from Hawaii and we've stayed in touch. It was so fun to get together and feel like our last visit was just the other day. We won't let 7 years go by again before we get together!
