Catching Up!

Hello All! I have had a lot of fun lately, with holidays, trips, and just having some good summer fun. Here are a few highlights:

Mack loves helping Daddy mow the lawn...and he always has to wear a hat just like dad does

The kids were totally mesmerized by fireworks on the 4th of July (as seen above by the last 2 pics of Mack and Kaitlyn)

Us as a family on the 4th of July outside Stadium of Fire
Mack loves playing with his friend Addie and Baby Jack
Mack went on a boat for the first time...and LOVED it!
He also loved to drive the boat...
Brad and I went to San Francisco for a big black tie awards event for his job. He was honored with a special award which was pretty cool!
We stayed an extra day in San Francisco and spent the day downtown learning to ride public transportation (which was a first for me) and being a tourist. That is Alcatraz behind me.
We went to the wax museum in downtown SF and I took pics of the highlights-Oprah is a little unrealistic with how thin they made her...she must have commissioned the statue herself and paid a little extra $$ if you know what I mean! And below is the one I thought was the most realistic, the Wizard of Oz cast. I thought that one was pretty cool!

We also went to a Giants vs Dodgers game...My hair has been in windblown all day so it's a little...full...I promise I don't go out like that in the morning!

A couple of more updates:
  • We are renting out our home because it has been difficult to sell
  • We are starting our home search out in Tooele on Wednesday
  • We tried potty training for a total of half a day with Mack because he had been going #1 on the potty once or twice a day for the past couple of weeks, but he's still not QUITE ready. So we'll try again in a few months.
  • Mack is getting really good at alphabet letter recognition...he can tell you what about 75% of them are.
  • I'm starting on my last semester of school next week...SO CLOSE!
Anyway, I know this is a really LONG blog, but I've been seriously slacking. Love you all!

This is my very favorite song right now...some of you SYTYCD fans may recognize it from earlier in the season when Jonathan and Carla did a contemporary dance to it...It gives me chills!
