Fun Day At The Zoo

 I had a day off so I took the kids to the zoo to see the new polar bear exhibit. It was actually pretty neat so  the Salt lake zoo is somewhat decent now!

 Look closely! Their is a hummingbird above the flower! I shot this as we were waiting for the bird show to start.
 Austin is thrilled beyond words about the bird show. He perked up during the show.

Aubree's 1st Track Meet

The running club (and yes I am just finding out that they have a running club in Stansbury ,but they meet the same night as her soccer practice!) was holding their last track meet and invited non-members to attend. So with special permission from her soccer coach (she was going to miss practice which is a no-no with a tournament coming up!) I took Aubree to the track to see what she could do.
She did the 100m, 400m, and the 200m. I don't have the actual results yet but just from the people I saw her racing against she place 2nd (except for the 200m I couldn't tell in that one) She was a little discouraged but I kept reminding her that most of these kids were on the running club and have been training all summer.
Bye-Bye little boys! This was the 400m

Old soccer buddies. I swear these 2 could be sisters!

Park City

 I got the day off at the last minute so we drove up to Park City. Since I love to travel and I don't get out much, Park City is my little piece of tourist heaven. (I know its sad:I love to travel and don't get out much?!?)

 Austin insisted on doing the trampoline and David caved since we only go about once a year.

 In line for the alpine slide
Austin finally has a smile on his face. He was actually pretty bad on this trip and gotten the Wii taken away from him when we got home,

Addie LOVED Wicked! She was a little confused on what was going on but once I explained it she got it. I wasn't sure if she was liking it or not because she was so quiet during the whole show but after it was over she couldn't stop talking: "Holy cow mom that was so good!"  "I want to see it again!"  "Thanks for taking me mom!"  That was huge for me because when I originally bought the tickets, it was going to be me and David, but after I took her to Beauty and the Beast she said she wanted to go to Wicked so I was feeling pretty guilty. Next week is Aubree's turn! (Story to follow)

Soccer Tournaments

I don't realize how my life revolves around soccer until we go to a tournament. Its 3 days and 4 games. (and they are always an hour away!) On one of the days their was a 6 hour gap between one of the games and I had 2 kids plus the little boy I babysat! Luckily one of the girls grandparents lived near by so we hung out there. Aubree is so lucky to be on such a great team! They are all really close friends. On one of the games I was running late (took 2 wrong turns!!!) and was late to the game, but as I was walking up to the field I was able to see Aubree's awesome goal just in time!

Love Our Views

David and go on a walk every night and this time I brought my camera! I love our views where we live. I haven't editted these yet and I don't think I'm going to!

My Yard

 I spent years getting my yard ready for Addie's baptism and 3 months right before doing EXTENSIVE weeding, dead heading you name it. Then the big day finally came and as luck would have it: IT WAS TOO WINDY! NO ONE WENT OUTSIDE!!!!!! So I am now posting pictures i took the other night. The great thing about a camera is you can only show what you want to show!

Big Cottonwood Canyon

 We went on a family hike up Big Cottonwood Canyon last weekend (left Addie home. Dave usually ends up carrying her the whole way.) She had the house and tv to herself and didn't call us once!

Happy 4th

 I was soooooo bummed this year! Aubree and David signed up for the 5k parade run. I bought AUbree new running shoes and she went running a couple of days before to practice, but the night before she banged up her knee during soccer practice and wasn't able to do the race! I had a hard time watching the runners go past during the parade.

 We went to Sugar House park during the day and then our neighborhood had a BBQ.

Aubree hanging out with her best friends (and her soocer buddies) Love our neighborhood!
