Its that time of year again...POOL TIME...and we are definitely making good use of it. We put Logan in swim lessons (after almost cancelling them due to her "freak out esisode" when we tried to take her in the deep end). I'm glad I didn't cancel them because she has loved it. She did eveything her teacher asked her to do and has grown to be more confident and comfortable in the water....I am so proud of her and her willingness to overcome her fears..She is growing up way to fast on me and it freaks me out! We bought her princess goggles-but kept forgetting to take them to her lesson-lol

Here are some more pics of the kiddos having fun in the water..

This is one of my favs.

Even Perry joined in on the fun...

This little guy is such a water bug...I had to watch him close this summer because he would jump right in the pool if I wasn't watching. He would let me throw him 5 ft in the water and laugh about it.. (Arm floaties are a lifesaver)

Splash park....

I have been a little slow at finishing this post-but it is finally done! Two weeks ago we took a trip to San Diego for Perry's sister Mikael's wedding...We were there for almost a week and had a really great time..Here are some pics to recap our adventures..

On our trip we learned HOW TO....

make sandcastles

We also learned how to pan for gold at the mormon battalion museum..

We learned how to "get along" with each other...These two actually get along really well. They are so cute to watch... We also learned how to "shake it" on the dance floor.

The number one most IMPORTANT thing we learned is how to NOT apply sunscreen...(yeah that would be my bad....sorry Perry) I might never live this one down... On our way to San Diego we stopped and stayed at a resort in Pheonix...It was so nice and relaxing...

I loved the flowers all over the grounds.

Since it was ONLY 113 degrees we spent most of our time at the pool...

love this one of Perry and Cache

The kids loved the kiddie pool... We spent most of the day here before heading the rest of the way to San Diego..... Hardly anyone was there-(I guess everyone leaves Pheonix during summer because of the heat....)

The next day was the wedding....Such a beautiful ceremony and temple..San Diego is gorgeous inside and out. Of course I had to get some pictures..

The flowers were amazing...

Beautiful Mikael with all the little kiddos.

We spent the day going to the luncheon..(so good) and then the reception in Temecula. Here are some pictures of the reception...

Such a cute couple...

The reception was nothing short of Amazing to say the least...One of the most beautiful weddings I have ever seen...My camera does not do these pictures justice but here is a portion of the yard it was at...

Gorgeous center pieces and tablecloths...

Mikael and neices and nephews.

All the kids were lovin the dance floor..

especially mine

We spent a couple days at the beach (getting fried) and trying out the boogie boards.(so fun)

We also went to Sea World

And saw Shamu (and pretty much every other show too)

The kids were really tuckered out by the end of the day...I love this one of Logan sleeping on her dolfin that she named...get this....Himjamonja..I don't know where she came up with it but that is her name...LOL

Tuesday we spent the whole day driving home...(13 hrs with stops)...yeah-it was kind of long...All in all it was a great trip...I'm ready to go back and try the boogie board some more..


HAPPY 4TH!!! Hope you had a great one!!
