Catch up Time...

We have had some good times lately. It all started with the Gardners coming out for some vacation from Pennsylvania. They came to hang out and have some good times for 3 weeks and we are all VERY glad that they did. Nancy and Tricia came up with their little boys from Texas to hang out as well. It's been so fun!!

We had an excellent 4th of July. Devin had to work in the morning so I went to the parade with my family. The parade was just average, but as always, it was fun to watch the little kids. It was a pretty warm day so in an effort to stay a little cool, mom was pouring water on Josh's hand. It was cute to just watch him hold it there while she poured water on it. He kept it there for quite a while.

It's been fun to watch all of the little girls help take care of Tyler and Josh.

I just have to say that we have some really cute nieces and nephew on both sides of the family! After we went to the parade we hung out for a while and then we went down to my aunt and uncle's house in Provo to have a bbq and watch some fireworks. They are so gracious to let us all come over and use their backyard. There were a lot of people there this year and it was especially fun to see cousins we haven't seen in over 6 years.

The Gardners, mom and dad, and Nancy and Josh went camping up at Granite Flats for a couple of days. Devin and I both had to work so we just went up after work to hang out. We were able to roast some s'mores and Devin was able to do some fishing which he was excited about. Here is the view as you are driving up the road to the campground. It was so beautiful!

While we were eating s'mores, Brinley had such a goopy mouth. She totally cracks me up!

Our garden is still doing pretty well. Here's just a little before and after so you can see how much it's grown. We are getting some blossoms on our zuchinnis and we have some tomatoes growing in - it will still be a while before they are ripe though. We are just about ready to pull up the peas and we have eaten quite a bit of broccoli. Not to brag or anything but we have the best looking garden in our apartment complex. :)

One of our favorite things to do is cut up some broccoli and zuchinni and fry it up in a pan. Yummy yummy!

Well I think that just about covers everything for now. I hope everything is going well for anyone reading this. And I hope you all had a great 4th of July!

Your garden does look good. I wish that i had a garden to tend to and a house to have a garden it. That rocks that you two still got to go after work and you didn't miss eveything!

Thanks for posting and sharing the pictures. Our house is way too quiet. We loved having everyone around.
