We decided to try and make taffy!  

The girls loved pulling it
We rolled it in powdered sugar.  It tasted delicious!

We have had such a busy but fun summer.  Since Sadie was in year round school our summer didn't really start until July.  We are taking advantage of every second.  Between cheerleading, swimming lessons, flips, Lagoon, and fun trips to Bear lake we have not had alot of time wondering what we should do!  We have been staying up way to late, and sleeping in a little to long but that is what summer is all about!

Officially ready for kindergarten!

Brinley had quite the day yesterday.  She has been waiting all summer to get her kindergarten shots.  Normally she would hate the doctor and getting shots but she new this was the last step to being able to go to kindergarten!
Brin showing off her shots!
Brin begged to get her ears pierced so the deal was if she was brave for her shots she could get her ears pierced!
She was so brave thank goodness for her dad who held her hand the whole time! She held onto the bear really tight while they did it!
She wasn't quite sure about the whole thing
Was happy as could be when it was all done.  She was so excited to show off her pink flower ear rings!
After we let the kids run around in the fountains at the gateway.  As you can see the pain only lasted a minute.  She was loving the water.
Sadie and Hailey came for a little moral support!  They loved the fountains too!
I guess a little bribery once in a while is ok!  She did great for all she had to do that day.  I can't believe she is going to be starting kindergarten soon.  She asks me everyday when she will start.  I think she is just a little excited about it!

We just got back from a fun weekend with the Seljaas Family.  We went to Bear Lake for the weekend and had the best time with the family.  Sadie, Brinley, and Hailey were in Heaven with all of their cousins around to play with.  We had such a great time down on the beach, playing games and riding 4 wheelers.  It was way hard to come home.  We were lucky enough to stay in my sisters cabin and it was great.  It was a great weekend with everyone and hopefully we will do it again soon!

The 4th of July to Remember!

Sadie got baptized on the 4th of July.  I think it is one she will always remember!  We were so grateful for all of the family and friends that came to support her on this special day.  She has been waiting so long for this day to finally get here but it was worth the wait.  She looked beautiful and was so happy.  Here are a few pictures from the day.  Since it was the 4th of July we decided to have a BBQ/swim party after with the family.  Thanks Kristi and Jason for letting us use your house.  It was a fun day.
