Skylie: Mom, there's the temple!!!! (we see it every day and she still acts like it's the most exciting thing she's ever seen)
Me: Yup, there it is. It's so pretty isn't it. (same thing I always say)
Skylie: It is so pretty.
Me: When are you going to go to the temple?
Skylie: Umm, when I'm dead.
Me: Are you sure that's when?
Me: When you get married you get to go in the temple. So Skylie when do you get to go to the temple?
Skylie: Umm, when I'm dead.
Me: How are you going to get in when you are dead?
Skylie: Umm, someone will just have to carry me.

Here is a group of the second generation cousins. I love more than anything being with my cousins and it's so fun to watch our kids have fun together and get to know each other.
Just a random picture of my sweet little Micah at the parade.
Every year the family has the annual root beer contest. Every year it seems to get a little more intense than the last. I love watching everyone get ready for it.
After lunch comes the races. It's fun, but there always seems to be tears shed by someone. Here goes Skylie!
My Dad is also a little scared for what's to come too.
So this is what they do for fun. Shoot roman candles at my Dad while he cruises around the field on the quad. I am always so worried every time they do this that one of them will hit the gas tank and the quad will explode. My Dad assured me that that won't happen. Maybe next year I won't be so nervous.
To kill time before the amazing fireworks Jay put on for us, we had a little family dance. Fun times.
We had lots of fun through the whole week with all the cousins and family. These pictures are a little out of order but oh well. The first day all the cousins got here we headed down to the river to have a wiener roast. It was fun cause everyone was just getting here so we were all able to be together at the river and visit and catch up with each other. Didn't get to many pictures of this day for some reason. Here's a couple of the kids playing in the mud.
It was my Grandparents anniversary that day so we headed up to the H.S. hill and picked flowers for my Grandma. It was such a nice day and it is such a pretty view of the mountains up there.

Steve one day just took all her soothers, didn't tell me where any of them were, and said she couldn't have them anymore. She was a little grumpy the first couple days, and every once in a while she'll ask for it, but it's gone. And she is fine.
As for the potty training. No idea what's going on there. I know it's normal for kids to have a bad day or two after their trained but I can count on one hand how many times she's gone in the potty in the last few days. It's so annoying. I know it's the summertime, we are really busy, haven't been home tons, but honestly.....
