Back to School

First day of school for Maggie (3rd grade) and Dalton (Kindergarten)

Dalton has two little church friends in his class, and two more next door.

Our neighbor is in the other class, but they are happy to carpool together!

End of Summer Fun

We packed lots into the last couple weeks of summer.

Dinner with my aunt and two cousins-once-removed.

Lunch with Daddy at work.

Learning how to play monopoly (Dalton won).

Some sick time.

Yogurtland was the last check off our summer fun list.

Kids went to gymnastics camp for one day. It wore Dalton out.

Neighborhood water balloon fight.

Celebrating John's awesomeness.

Beach day with friends on the last day of summer break.

Utah: Everything Else

Playing Wii and Uno with Grandpa was a highlight of this trip, especially for Dalton.

Our intended pool was closed, but we found one in Sugarhouse that worked. The kids had a great time, though only Maggie was tall enough for the slide.

And this one was close to The Soup Kitchen!

Utah: Timpanogos Cave

Early Monday morning, we hiked to Timpanogos Cave with Jodi and Franco.  We had to wake the kids up and it was a long, hard hike for those of us carrying babies and adjusting to the altitude. So, for everyone but the kids.

Sienna was obsessed with the bear box and cried when I made her get out.

Utah: Aquarium and Penguin Encounter

Our third day in Utah, we went to the aquarium.  

The highlight of the visit was that Maggie and I (and some other family) got to do the penguin feeding. John kindly let me have the ticket and watched the (hungry, grumpy kids) since baby and I miss out on lots of things right now.

Here are the videos I took during the penguin encounter.

Utah: City Creek and Temple Square

We relaxed our second day in Utah, then went downtown for dinner. We rode Trax with grandma, Erin and Ember.

And met Nathan and family at City Creek where everyone got something different from the food court.

After dinner we enjoyed the City Creek fountains, and walked around Temple Square.

Unsolicited smooch from Beep. She loves her daddy.
