We went boating on Friday night to Utah Lake with my brother Michael, my sister Angie and her finance Jason. It was really fun. I did however get eaten by mosquitos after we were done and getting the boat out. Lizzy got up on the surf board with my brother and Lizzy and Ali got in the water for a little bit.

Bridal Veil Falls

For FHE the other night we went up to Bridal Veil Falls to play in the water and have peanut butter pie that Shae made. We went up with our friends Gen and Ashton and their new baby Lucy. It was fun, but the water was pretty cold. That didn't stop Elizabeth and Ali from playing in the water. It did however keep Aiden out of the water most of the time. I have to say Ali was the most adventurous. She tried to climb up the mountain and on a big rock.

Sleeping on the trampoline

Sunday night we were all playing on the tramp when I told the kids I used to sleep on my trampoline when I was a kid. Then of course Lizzy and Ali said they wanted to sleep on the tramp. So I told them I would with them. Lizzy and Ali fell asleep fine. But I couldn't sleep. My hips and lower back kept hurting. So finally at 1 or 2 am I decided to come inside and sleep. Ali then woke up and was scared. So I brought the girls inside and we slept in our beds. Maybe we will try another time when I'm not pregnant.

Swimming this summer

We have had a fun time swimming this summer. I think this summer we went swimming more than any other summer. This summer Lizzy has learned how to do a flip off the side of the pool. She also tries to dive off, but it is more of a belly flop. All the kids like going down the big slide. They sit on our laps and wear a life jacket. They have also enjoyed getting a snow cone afterward.
