Chyrstal Hot Springs

This summer our whole family went to Cyrstal Hot Springs for the day.  We took our lunches and pop-up canopy.  It was so much fun, swimming and lounging all day; and it wasn't even crowded.  The girls loved playing in the pools by themselves as we watched from our lawn chairs in the shade.  Preston loved the slide, I couldn't get him off of it.  So he and I spent almost the whole time going up and down the water slide.  I haven't been to Chrystal Hot Springs since I was in High School.  I think we will have to make this a yearly tradition.  I did get sunburned on my back because I forgot to reapply it when I was doing my face, good thing I kept my kids from getting sunburned, 1 unhappy person was enough.

 Uncle Mike took Preston down the slide so I could get a picture of Preston.  I can't believe he liked it so much, I thought he would be the one that was scarred.  The girls were happy going hopping around to all the pools while I took Preston up and down the slide all day.

Summer Ball

This year is was Sydney's first year playing all girl fast pitch and Shelby's first year playing t-ball.  They both loved it and can't wait until next summer for ball to start.  Sydney's best position was 3rd base.  Shelby just ran all over (like all the other kids)

This and That

Preston LOVES to be on the tractor with Dad.  I don't know what is going to happen when he is too big.  I guess we'll have to teach him how to drive :)
 Our orange stripped cat that I thought was a male had kittens, Shelby is holding the one we decided to keep.  He is all white with orange ears and an orange tail.
 Preston loves to wear his cowboy pants and boots with his sisters pink chaps, we couldn't have that so I found him some "hunting" chaps as he calls them becauses they are camo.

Jog-a-thon and 2nd Grade Field Trip

The kids had a jog-a-thon at school to raise money, the kids loved it.  Shelby and Preston had just as much fun walking/jogging around the track as the school kids, they walked almost the entire time.  The kids with cousin Addie, and Sydney's friend Sophie.

 Shelby coming around the track walking as fast as she can.
 Sydney after the silly strink fight.  She raised the most in her class (over $200) to be in the fight.
 The only day it rains in 2 weeks and it is the day of Sydney's 2nd grade field trip.  They went to Willow Park over in Logan and then visited Kent's Grocery store.  Even though it rained the whole time, they had fun.  Her friends, Kynlee and Brynlee that she sat by on the bus.
 Some of her class at Kent's.
