We went to see the floats before the big July 24th parade in Salt Lake City. Balloon animals, face painting, candy.
This is a little dated now, but here are pictures from Adam’s birthday. The kids all went along to pick out a cake. It was a little chaotic.
I took Henry out canoeing the other day (at Bountiful Pond, which is only ~10 min away). He was excited. For Henry the highlight of the outing was finding a huge dead carp floating in the water and proceeding to hit it with the paddle as many times as he could.
He was a little worn out. This is Henry, fast asleep, with the lights on and toy in hand just a few minutes after we got home.
Jen took everyone to the fish farm in Ogden. Kind of expensive if you let the kids really go to town, but it’s fishing sped up to match little kid attention spans (i.e., catch fish just about as fast as you can pull them out of the water). If you ask Caroline, she’ll tell you she caught a “fwoppy [floppy], fwoppy, fwoppy fish.” Always described with three “fwoppies.”
Although we’re a little behind on the blogging, here’s Emily’s baby blessing (or at least the lunch/party afterwards). We did it the day after Courtney’s wedding since we had most of Jen’s family in town. It was also our last hurrah at church before we started going to church up by the new house.
Food! Having it catered was money well-spent–the party was more fun when it was already done when we walked in.
