It's still weird for me to go home and not have little elementary age girls running around the house.
My sisters are growing up more and more, but I am so proud of the young women they are turning into. Megan is graduating early in December and heading off to Weber State University to play volleyball! We had fun talk to her about her plans and life and going to visit her at work (Subway). She makes an awesome 6"!
Heather is the number 1 recruit right now in Utah for her age. Yeah she's AMAZING. While we were there she was training with her team for Nationals in Florida. Brad and I got to catch the end of a practice and I am so impressed with how good her and Megan have gotten! Ashley is Jaxon's number 1 girl. He LOVES his Ashley. He was puling on her finger all weekend to follow him around and when she left one day to play with a friend in the afternoon Jaxon was so sad. He kept pointing to her picture and asking where she was (in baby language lol). She was so good to play with him take him on walks, and jump with him on the tramp. He loved his Aunts and there was never a shortage of attention between them and the Grandparents ;) Our last trip was so short with Trent and so it was fun to have extra time to just hang out and talk. We were there to celebrate his birthday and of course his cake request was Oreo. ;)
We spent three mornings at the park playing Tennis and another one hiking. We were loving the dry beautiful Utah weather and taking full advantage of it. Trent and Rachel kept us up late a few nights playing board games and you know with the competitive juices in our family it got a little intense. It was fun to get to know her more and we are excited to celebrate at their wedding in September. We enjoyed seeing Grandma Great (Moody) a few times and being able to catch up. Jaxon loves his Grandma and Grandpa Gneiting! I always feel bad because they get shorted a little bit with all the Aunts and Uncles around. We were grateful for their help and watching Jaxon so Brad and I could get together with friends or play games with my sisters. Jaxon had fun on his walks with Grandma and eating as much watermelon as his heart desired.
Because a lot of my old high school friends go to BYU or live in the Utah county area I organized a little reunion at my parent's one night. Its been forever since we've all been together and it was so fun to see everyone and catch up!

Our Summer vacation was everything we wanted. The best part was being able to spend time together with Brad around. It was nice to relax and be surrounded by family. Jaxon was spoiled with lots of love and was getting a little grouchy by the end of the trip and we were all ready to get back to reality. I know summer breaks won't last much longer and so Im grateful for the memories and time we were able to take advantage of this year!
