First day of Preschool!

Today was the first day of preschool for Jaxon! Jaxon was so excited this morning and kept asking me a million questions like who was going to be at school, if he was going to ride the bus, and he realized I was driving him he wanted to make sure I was dropping him off and NOT staying (and if I was going to be home)! I'm so excited for him too! I'm excited for him to be with other kids and to learn. His preschool teacher has some amazing ideas and he's excited for field trips and being with his friends. He really just loves learning and he's been ready to go to school for a long time! I'm wondering if I'll get used to having a few hours without him, because he is my best friend! I wonder if all parents are lucky enough to feel that way.

Roy Pool

We got to go to the Roy Pool with my sister and her kids and my cousin Jessica and her kids! Amber, Jessica, and I were always really close growing up and now it's fun that our kids are all around the same age too! Even though we live farther away from each other now, we still try to get together and hang out when we go up north! The kids all had so much fun together! We got a great spot right by edge of the pool! The kids loved the splash pad and frog slide, and the moms enjoyed sitting at in the water and getting some sun! It's nice to be out in the sun and not feel like you live in a sauna (like St. George)! I feel like we did more things this past two weeks than we have all summer!

Sorry this is sideways-I gave up on trying to make it right :)

Fun at Bear Lake

We went to Bear Lake for the day and enjoyed the beach! My mom and sister and I went with the kids along with my sister's husband and his family. The kids had a lot of fun building sand castles and playing in the water! I havent been to Bear Lake for years it was fun to go and relax and not be too hot! Raspberry Days was just starting and we also got to enjoy a raspberry shake-because you can't go to Bear Lake w/o having a raspberry shake! I love driving through Logan and Brigham too! We saw the Brigham temple, which reminds me alot of the Salt Lake temple, and we also saw the house where my Grandpa Hofler grew up!

Building sand castles!

South Weber Days!

South Weber is just below my parents neighborhood and while we were up north South Weber Days was going on and we went to the fun parade and got a lot of candy and some pool toys! The kids had fun playing on the bounce houses, eating snow cones, playing at the park, and seeing papa's car in the car show!
