Beach with Jared and Amanda

We were so excited to finally be able to spend some time with Jared and Amanda. Our visits have become further and further apart over the years with everything in life that goes on. We decided to meet at a new beach neither of us had been to but it was in between our houses so we went on 8/1!

These two were so adorable to watch! It took them a while to warm up to each other but when they did they had such a blast.

They didn't even say anything to each other just played, smiled, and laughed...

Beach day with family!

On July 10th we met my cousin and her family that were visiting from Utah at the beach! We had so much fun and the kids loved playing with their cousins..

My Uncle Bill transformed my kids into different human beings! He convinced Cayden to try boogie boarding which we haven't been able to do this year, and he did! I was amazed and about to have a nervous breakdown watching him take all of the waves!

He had a smile on his face the whole time..

Uncle Bill even got him riding on his back!

Our little miss Ellie this year had decided to not go near the water and Uncle Bill got her playing and having a blast in it!

Our little Mia is a sand eater unfortunately and she loves the beach!

On July 6th we took the kids to the safari park! We weren't planning to stay all day but the kids were SO good and we were all having such a great time we decided to stay!

Mia loves the bird show!

We took the tram which the kids always enjoy..

We saw a really fun crazy acrobatic show the kids and I loved!! While we waited for the show to start the kids were having some fun with sweedish fish =)

I have me some crazy boys..

We always have to go say hi to Winston!

We let them do the penny machine which the kids were SO excited about!!

We were all pretty exhausted by the end of the day and our day would never be complete without Ellie having a meltdown =)

4th of July parade!

The Saturday before fourth of July, our city holds a parade right by our house that the kids LOVE! We make it a fun family day =)

Cayden and I were goofing off while we waited for the parade to start!

I got some flags for the kids to wave around which they loved!

Cayden meant business when it came to getting as much candy as he could

After some delicious food at our house we walked back to the park for fireworks!! It was such a fun day!!

family beach day!

We had a great family beach trip on 6/27! We parked at Cayden's favorite spot so he could watch the Amtrak go by!

Mia wasn't too sure about the water..

I couldn't believe how sandy Ellie got!!

We thought it would be fun to walk on the pier and get some ruby shakes to go! It was really busy but luckily Mia got a little nap in while we were waiting..

We all had a great day being together as a family =)
