3rd Grade

Well another year has come and gone and Colby started 3rd grade this week!! Can't believe I have a 3rd grader. He is in Mrs. Fawson's class. He was a crack up school shopping this year, up until now he has not cared what I pick out for him to wear, but this year he was Mr. Style, he needed skinny jeans, vans shoes, and a back pack that goes across the front. He is definitely becoming a very stylish and quite a handsome kid!!


The last weekend before Colby headed back to school we spent the weekend up at Kolob with the Orton's. We spent the couple of days we were up there out shooting, catching frogs, and having yummy dutch oven dinner. Taylee had so much fun picking up the frogs, she wasn't scared at all. She would grab them out of the bucket sometimes 2 at a time, maul them a little and then throw them back into the bucket to do it all again. Poor frogs... haha. Colby had a great time shooting guns with the boys. However, both families ended up needing a new tire or two by the end of the weekend which was not so great. But all in all it was a horrible weekend for tires but a great weekend with some great friends. We can't wait to do it again!!

24th of July

Trying to catch up on a few missed posts....

So the 24th of July was a pretty low key holiday for us this year, we usually spend the 24th in Escalante but with both Josh an
d I working the whole weekend that didn't happen. Colby spent the weekend up in Salt Lake with his cousin so it was just the 3 of us for the weekend. Josh and I both ended up having Sunday off so we took a great drive up and around Kolob. It was gorgeous up there and it was nice to get out of the heat for a few hours. We then came home and ate dinner and then Josh set up a cute little firework show for me and Taylee. Tay covered her eyes through every firework, it was a great little weekend even if most of it was spent working.
