Sad to say goodbye...

It's never fun when summer comes to an end. We had a great one! Here are a few bits of our fun...

I was on the committee of setting up a carnival/fundraiser for our neighbor with Stage 4 brain cancer. He'll leave behind a wife and 3 young children. Fortunately, we were able to bring together thousands of people and raised almost $40,000 for the family. It was an amazing experience that I'm happy I was able to be a part of. Here's Caleb riding the mechanical bull at the carnival...

 Clairey on the rock climbing wall...


 Caleb with his huge muscles one summer day...

I told the kids I wanted to play "pedicure" and got myself a nice little foot and leg massage. Oh ya...

We had a little scare with Claire. We thought she may have appendicitis and ended up in the ER, but it turned out to be a really weird case of Strep. She had no sore throat and no symptoms at all except for severe abdominal pain. I'm so glad that she is okay...
 Lookin good in the neighborhood... Rilee, Claire, Violet and Caleb. BFFs...
Bud and I at City Creek in Salt Lake celebrating our 6 year wedding anniversary...

Californa Pizza Kitchen, a walk downtown, ice cream, a movie and a night at the Marriot. It was perfect!...
 Some other day we went to City Creek to take the kids to the Disney Store and splurged and got Caleb a cute fitted hat from Fanzz. Spoiled!...

Sleeping out on the trampoline. Caleb's first time and he made it through the night...

 I hung out for a bit before I went inside to sleep close to Janie...
 A day of many at the splash park...
 Salt Lake County Fair...


 Love em...

 Goggles and kids are just the best!...
 Bud has been working out hard the past couple of months! He's lost weight and lots of inches! SEXY!!!
 I'm not sure why we're the joke of the neighborhood, but someone thought they were funny and put 7 flags in our yard for Labor Day. And it was hilarious! We also got ourselves a nice little minivan parked in the driveway. It's the best car in the world!
The Blonquists also put this sign in our yard because Bud is always talking about how great his lawn mowing skills are...
 Demolition Derby...
 One of many bike rides...
 And one of many jumps on the trampoline...
Whew! That was fun! Now to get ready for fall...
