Art Class

Adam’s mom teaches high school art, so we went and did some art projects with her (during a day she didn’t have school).  The kids were excited about going to “Grandma’s school” for weeks before we went on our trip to KS.  We made masks, painted, made jewelry, and even threw some pots!  We got some help from Grandpa Mike and from Aunt Megan too.

Dancing in the garage!

My mom was just getting the garage floor refinished, so the kids spent a lot of time playing in the currently-empty garage.

Kansas City Trip

The kids and I went to Kansas City for UEA weekend (supposedly a weekend for the big Utah teachers union’s conference, also coincidentally the opening weekend of deer hunting season…).  Adam had to stay and work.

We met my dad at the hospital cafeteria for lunch.

Caroline did some indoor 4-wheeler riding at my parents’ house.  I’m pretty sure that Adam bought the little battery-powered 4-wheeler when Becca was two, so it’s been around for a while.

The kids were always excited to see Grandpa.

We also went out to Adam’s parents’ house a few times.  Played some foosball with Adam’s little brother.

Did some crafts and made some pretzels.

Henry was pretty excited to find a bunch of old transformers.

We made haunted gingerbread houses.  My dad helped.

All the fountains in town were dyed blue–definitely the most Royals enthusiasm in recent memory!

The kids also get recruited to play tennis with my dad.

Also had ice cream (and lot of other treats).

And then we finally had to leave.  :(

Cheerleading

Becca did a cheerleading clinic with the cheerleaders from East High in Salt Lake.  The clinic culminated in a halftime show at an East football game–Becca was pumped!  Caroline and Henry didn’t really handle the late night that well, but we made it through the halftime show and managed to get everyone back home with only a moderate amount of crying.

We made the most of the end of summer weather and took a trip up Farmington Canyon to have a picnic dinner.  Then went fishing down at Farmington Pond.
