At the Cabin!

We got to go up to Pine Valley quite a bit this summer. I love it up there. I could just spend all summer up there. It is so nice and cool. It is amazing you can drive 20 minutes and have it be so much cooler and your right in the mountains.

We had a yummy dutch oven dinner for Alex's birthday.

Eating everyone's favorite kind of cake, Texas Sheetcake!

All the grandkids love to help decorate the cake with sprinkles and of course the candles!

This is one of the favorite things to do up at the cabin is swing in the hammock. I love listening to the quaky trees when it has a little bit of a breeze.

Corben is doing his chore up there. We are suppose to water when we stay there, and Corben was right on top of it. He is such a good helper.

Fishing in Pine Valley!

We took the kids up to Pine Valley and went fishing at that resevoir before our little family party. We didn't fish very long, but it was fun just to watch the kids fish.

Corben playing on the rocks. I love just being up in the mountains, with the fresh air, and the beautiful views all around.

Hanging out with the family!

Fun at the City Pool!

We went to the St. George City Pool for my nephew Bridger's birthday party. They reserved it so we had it all to ourselves. My kids just kept going down the hydrotube about a million times. They thought it was the coolest slide ever.

Swimming with Grandpa!

Brielle had fun. I was suprised how much she liked going down the big slide.

Makayla loves to swim!

Kesley swimming with her cousin Allie!

Fourth of July

For the Fourth of July we started off having a BBQ at Steve's house. It was fun to all get together.

I had made these Brownie Pops for the Fourth for a fun little treat!

Also I had made a An American Flag Rice Krispie treat. I saw it on a website and thought that was the cutest idea and it wasn't very hard at all. The kids all loved it!!

Then that night, We did the usual. We went to Grandma and Grandpa Allred's and watched the big firework show from the sunbowl. Their house is in a perfect spot just a couple blocks down from their. She always has yummy treats and drinks for everyone!

Doing some fireworks with the kids!

Me and Brielle with her American Flags. She had so much fun waving those all around!

The kids are all lined up watching the fireworks and eating cracker jacks!

Brielle loved the sparklers. She just kept doing them over and over again!

Our Trip to Vegas!

We went to Vegas right after school got out. So it wasn't so HOT yet down there. It was actually perfect down there. We went with my parents, Steve and his kids, and Marsha and Russ and their kids. We got two timeshares that had 2 bedrooms in each of them so each family had their own room. They both had kitchens in them so we just bought food and cooked the meals there. It was perfect!!

Here is the cousins watching a movie!!

So much fun to be able to sleep with your cousins and have a big sleepover with them.

Eating dinner in our room.

They all loved the pool cause it had 2 waterfalls, one on each side of the pool. So it was fun to go under them! The pool was so nice and the water was just the right temperature!

We had a BBQ while we were swimming. It was so nice to have everything right there. Especially when you have been swimming all day and the kids were starving!

All the cute kids enjoying some YUMMY food!
