A slacker is a slacker no matter how you spell it!

It’s been way to long since I blogged last, so thought I better do one… I don’t really have anything to say, which makes blogging a little difficult!

It’s been a good summer, we are not doing any holidays this year we are just trying to little trips on Saturdays to enjoy the local fun.

One thing about where we live, is there are barely any mosquitoes.  Which means my kids love to just sleep on the deck. I myself being a complete worry wart, also love it because there is no access from anywhere our living room. Which means safety!IMG_1150

To celebrate the fourth of July we went swimming at Veteran’s pool and to the fireworks.  Veteran’s pool is an outdoor pool with a big pool, two waterslides and a huge area for kids! We love it, it’s pretty affordable to get in, snacks are cheap and plenty of fun.

The fire works were actually way to expensive for us to go to, they have it at a stadium where Carrie Underwood was playing, so instead we went and sat on the lawn at the temple and watched from there.

Meliah couldn’t make it through the entire day with out a power nap. Luckily she had her princess dress on!IMG_1163Waiting…IMG_1165IMG_1186On Monday the 5th we went on a awesome hike. In Provo you can hike to the Y on the side of the mountain. We decided to take it a step further and come from our house, which involved going up and around the mountain then down to the Y. After we got there (6.5 hours later) we just walked down the switch backs to the waiting vehicle. Shane and I ran the truck there in the morning, unfortunately our brilliant sons beat us to it and decided to play the radio and turn on all the fans, so it wouldn’t start… Luckily we brought the Neighbour boy David and his wonderful dad came and rescued us.IMG_1195IMG_1204IMG_1206IMG_1214IMG_1240           Meliah was a trooper, when she got tired she just held dad’s hand and away she went!IMG_1249IMG_1251IMG_1258The end result… The Y is really ugly in person! But very cool! It was a great day.

The reward:IMG_1260 IMG_1261    Macey’s Ice Cream! $1.29 for all that! Obesity in America? I wonder why? We usually get one to share with our entire family. It is called ‘The Kong’.

We have tried some new hair stylesIMG_1267 IMG_1268

We have swam at a couple of reservoir. We have yet to find a sandy beach, we still have fun.IMG_1277IMG_1305IMG_1354IMG_1279We have had a surprise party for Shane. Seriously stressful. We tried to convince him to work that day, when that didn’t work we decided to go to a movie… And when at the last minute I didn’t go, which made Shane annoyed at my lameness but it was worth it.  We had dinner and a mini MacJam, it was a great way to celebrate Shane.IMG_1378IMG_1372The spelling mistake….IMG_1369IMG_1379 IMG_1381 IMG_1383 IMG_1384 IMG_1385 IMG_1386IMG_1390 IMG_1392 IMG_1393 IMG_1394     IMG_1409 IMG_1413 IMG_1414 IMG_1421 IMG_1430 IMG_1431 This is how to spell FUN!

That is about it!
