Sum....Sum....Summertime!

Brace yourselves.......there are plenty of pictures in this post!



First off, these are just two cute pictures of Jace. He is 3 months old now and has two teeth! Yes, TWO teeth!


Summer is in full swing and we have been doing some fun things.


Last weekend we had a Davis family reunion at my mom's cousin's house.


They have a beautiful home and yard. The kids all had a great time exploring and playing.



Katelyn and Sophie playing in the fountain.


We all gathered together and listened to my grandpa and his sisters tell stories of their growing up years. It was fun to hear them talk about experiences in their lives.

Having lunch!


There were 145 of us! Aunts, uncles, grandparents, first, second and third cousins! Most of these people we haven't seen for many years. It was fun to see how everyone had changed and how their families have grown.

Don't the kids look thrilled?! They had to stop playing long enough to run through introductions!


My Grandparents. Grandpa is always pulling a funny face when his picture is taken!


Another adventure last week was going up the canyon with some of Kelly's family. We had such a fun evening.





We roasted marshmallows, had tin foil dinners and dutch oven peach cobbler! Those are some of my favorite parts about being in the mountains.


Uncle Kelcey brought up his fishing gear and let the boys give it a try. This was the first time Connor had tried fishing and he caught a fish in the first few minutes. He was pretty thrilled!






We also made another trip to the pool.


This is my niece Tayler. After jumping off the high dive, Kelly got her to try the platform just higher than this. She almost didn't do it, but we all started chanting her name and she jumped right off. She was pretty proud! Plus grandpa said he would give her $10 if she did it!
These next few pictures loaded backwards and I am too tired to fix it. You get the idea anyway!




We also went to the park for a 4th of July picnic. We had it on Saturday and it was COLD! Well, had it not been for the wind, it probably wouldn't have been too bad. But I honestly couldn't remember a time I ever wore a jacket on the 4th of July




We had a game of kickball.





Kelly and Katelyn ate ice cream in a tree!


And despite the cool and windy day, we had a great time with our family!


Later this week we are headed to Lagoon and then next week we are off to Island Park. Stay tuned to hear about those adventures!

Your kids must just think summertime is THE BEST! So fun! Kelly probably told you that he drove by our house on Sunday night while we were outside making ice cream. My kids were THRILLED to see inside a cop car, and Parker keeps talking about his cool weapons. We told Kelly that we should hang out with you guys sometime! I can't believe how big Jace is already...kind of sad how fast the newborn stage goes! He's so cute!

It kind of makes me tired to see all you have done. Maybe that's because we've done most of it with you. We have had fun, though, haven't we.
