Sean has been very paitent with me while I have been playing a TON of softball this year. He has watched the kids and been so sweet about me being gone. Last night I was playing and I guess all the boys were waiting up for me and just didn't make it until I got home. The picture is what I came home to. Isn't so cute! I love my boys.

This afternoon we went swimming with the Argyle's to Nephi Swimming Pool. The boys had fun. T is getting so confident in the water. I'm so proud of him. He went down the slide too many times to count. He jumped off the diving board a ton and did all sorts of tricks. He jumped backwards and did spins. He is getting so big. A loves the water. He took swimming lessons this year. So he just kept playing the games that they played at the lessons. It was cute.
The Buck's had a great idea of having a Shooting Star Party. It was last night and it was a ton a fun. It started at 10pm. They played a movie "Race to Witch Mountain" on a projector. We laid blankets on their lawn and watched the Shooting Stars and the movie. Perfect movie because it was about Aliens from outerspace. They made the party really fun with Telescopes, Tonz of Glow Sticks, Treats, Popcorn in little containers for each family and lots of people. I couldn't believe how many people and families turned out. We have so many awesome families that live around us. We had a great time!

We went to our annual Beck Reunion on Saturday. I had a pleasant drive up the Canyon with my Grandma Beck. She is such a great person. The Pond is such an awesome place for a reunion. There is a paddle boat, a floating dock with a slide, canoe, two trampolines, fishing, zip line, diving board and a Huge swing that takes you right over the pond. Our whole family got on the swing, even my Grandma Beck. What a good sport. Jess and I jumped out of the swing and flew through the air into the frigid water. I have a picture of Jess that looks like he is flying. He was going so High on the swing. What a rush! The water was a bit cold but we still played in it and had a good old time. The kids were jumping off the diving board to us. They thought they were so big climbing out of the water up the ladder all by themselves. There was good food, family and of course singing. The boys loved everything up there and didn't want to go home. They were both fast asleep before we even got out of Spanish Fork Canyon.
I finally did it. We had to do away with A's blankee. It was a hazard. Man he loved that thing. We just told him that we had to throw it away. . . So I let Grandma do it and so she is the bad man. Sean came home from Hunting and asked what happened to your Blanket and he said, "Awma threw it away." He has been pretty good about it. So now he will sleep safe and sound.

Now that I have a child that is going into school I finally understand the end of summer for them. I'm trying to make these last few weeks super fun and exciting for them. Sean received a DS as a bonus for a transaction so T loves to play it. But he can't really conquer any of the boards so I end up reliving my ninentendo days and help him....Sean will walk in from work and T, A and I are all glued to the DS. He probably thinks we have been there all day but it has only been like 5 min. I swear!!!
We have been swimming in our little pool and having picinic's under towel tents. Good Times! There is a picture of T Diving in here that is pretty funny. My boys are SO Handsome. I love them more than anything. It is CRAZY how much joy and laughter they can bring into my life. I can't believe how fast they are growing up. A is talking so well know. It is time for another one. I will have to clue Sean in on that new idea that I have!?! I LOVE my family. They are the greatest. There are days like these that I feel so blessed.

What a Beautiful Day to be out on the Lake. Blue skies and just a few clouds. We had a blast!
T, A and I were invited to go to Yuba yesterday with the Argyle's for their family reunion. Oh well Sean was invited also but Hunting Season has began so he was hunting. It was so nice of them to invite us to come along. They didn't have to twist my arm to hard. . . I love the water and beaches. I was only going to stay for a couple hours but I ended up having such a good time that we stayed until after 7pm. We rode in the boats, went on wienie rides, played in the mud and ate great food. They had Ice Cream for a nice summer treat and as you can see T has the bright idea of eating his cone backwards!?! The end result is a nice swim to wash off all the ice cream that dripped out of the bottom of his cone onto his life jacket. He is so funny. T played so hard in the water all day. He didn't want to leave when it was time. I love to see him play so hard out of doors. A was in the mud most of the day. In the picture with his Ice Cream there is a little girl that is trying kiss and hug him and it is making him so mad. Hopefully he will keep those feelings about girls until after his mission. Then he can become girl crazy. Before his mission in a perfect world he would just focus so hard on schooling and sports . . . oh and not fighting(that is difficult for A) Hee hee
We had so much fun. Thanks again to the Argyle's for another great summer memory!
