Fun Filled Summer... Sorry it's over

This summer has been full of activity! Derick and I had lots of fun doing things together once school got out! Of course we did the annual Bear Lake trip with the Milne’s! Anything involving water and being outside is always good for me! This year we spent lots of time on the beach of the Lake. Derick and I did the wave runners and even played with Cooper and Ava in the Sand.
Last year I got a hole in one on the 18th hole and won a free game. This year Derick did that and beat me! Ava was so cute with her golf ball and every time I asked Cooper what he got on the hole it was 4. I think that was his favorite number for the week.

We went to Manti for 24th of July (pioneer day here in Utah) and camped out. Last year I told Derick that if I caught a fish I would cut it. (of course I had no clue what this entailed) So I freaked out and didn’t do it. This year he was cute and bought me my own fishing pole! So I was bound and determined to catch something. After a long weekend of nothing I finally caught one. I screamed and yelled for Derick to see and help me and of course he is no where around. So as I am trying to get Derick’s attention, what does my fish do??? JUMP OFF and SWAM AWAY! Of course Derick didn’t believe me but I did gut one fish that he caught! Well I was wearing gloves but hey at least I did it right???

We also had a lot of fun in Manti for the opening day of the bow hunt. It turned out to actually be warm with just a little bit of rain here and there. But over all it was lots of fun and a pretty relaxing weekend. Of course I was still too chicken to go down the zip line. Who knows maybe in a few years! LOL

I’ve also spent a lot of time scrapbooking and sewing. A few years ago my sister Kristi made me a scrapbook of the kids. So I decided to take all the extra paper and add some new, up to date pictures of the kids. I also had to add little Jonathan to it all! But I think so far it’s pretty cute and I even left some blank pages to add more pictures each time I get some! I also scrapbooked some pictures that were long overdue for it. For example, college pics! Yes college was about 7-10 years ago!

I also did some from when I lived in Vegas. I’m trying to get everything caught up before I start a scrapbook of Derick and I. Who knows, it might take one more year of being married before I get to it! LOL. Next on my list is Terra’s family and all my pics of Dakota! But first I have to finish my quilt! Look forward to many more pics!
