Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple Open House

Last night Jarom and I enjoyed going to the Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple Open House. My mom, her friend, Naomi, my cousin July and her daughter Maddy also enjoyed coming along. It was so nice to walk through the temple.. especially to take Jarom through. (Korey is out of town with work or he would have been there with us).

Loved the Haderlie's visiting us

Last week we loved a good visit from our friends the Haderlie's. We knew them in AZ. and hadn't seen them in a long time. Our friends the Flints (who live near us) were also friends with them. So last week we all gathered at my house and had a great time... thoroughly enjoyed good conversation, zip lock bag ice cream, water fights/balloons/hose/pool, bubbles... loved having them here! Wish we could see them more often!

Water Balloon fight!

Yummy zip lock bag ice cream...

Enjoyed our Saturday.... Friends - Family & Fun

We started Saturday with the Clinton parade with our friends the Flint's and their kiddos. What a long parade but the kids all had fun collecting a ton of candy.

Then we went down to all the happenings on 25th Street in Ogden where my sister Hannah and her kiddos joined us as well as my sisters Esther and Naomi. We all enjoyed the farmer's market, scones, crepes, robbery re-enactment (that was too brief) and saw the tractor show. Then we went to the Tree House Children's Museum (free day) None of us had been there before and the kiddos all had fun...

Then we went to the Union Station, the Utah State Railroad Museum, John M Browning Firearms Museum and the Kimball Classic Car Museum (happened to be a free day) We all enjoyed looking around.

Finally we joined my cousin July and her girls at my uncle Randy's house to roast marshmallows and make smores.... afterwards we went to watch the Clinton fireworks. What a great Saturday.

Splash Pad... cooling off on a hot summer day!

The boys have been gone to Pa and Grandma's (Korey's parents) since Monday. Sariah and I were very excited to see them. Being a very hot day we decided to go and cool off at the local splash pad... (we had never been there before). My sister in-law Amber joined us along with my sister Sarah and my sister Hannah and her two kiddos. We all had a great time!

Jarom just loves water and it shows!

Took Sariah a long time to go in the water and then she loved it...

What happens when you just don't want to nap?

Sariah has been extremely difficult the past two weeks to nap or even go to bed at night. I know she is not ready to give up naps... just doesn't want to miss out on anything... today after no nap this happened... sound asleep.
