July Randoms

Summer time is so magical - the long carefree days that fade into nights.  We loved breaking in our new home this July.  

Mid July Mason went on a conference trip to Colorado.  He had a great time.  I'll be going with him next year.

Our raccoon friend came to visit again.

Adelyn was cute and made lots of messes... Of course I had to document each time either happened.

We got our free dinner at Chick-fil-a.  The kids love this tradition.

We stumbled upon a free library water party one afternoon.  Luckily for us we had our swimsuits in the car.

Our sand table lost all its sand so it became a water table for the summer.  Sometimes I'd put bubbles in it.  Mom win.

We went to Seven Peaks in Salt Lake with Nana and Poppa and the cousins one afternoon.

Danielle, Iris, and Sistine were visiting from France.  They came up one Sunday to Monday.  We had a BBQ and just let the kids play.  Boonie and Sistine had a blast together.  I've since had to explain to Boonie many times why he can't marry his cousin.  Here she is trying to kiss him.

Mason's face when someone offered to buy the back lot:

About to lose a tooth!!

And THEN Grandma and Grandpa came to visit at the end of July.  Boonie was beyond excited when Grandma purchased this:

Boonie was determined to loose his tooth before Grandpa left so he could go to Chuck-a-rama and enjoy the food.  Grandma helped him get it out with her string trick.

Whew!  There's July!!  We had lots of visitors this month!

I took my dolly out towards the end of July to capture her in her cuteness and the beautiful sunset before fall officially arrives.  I love how it turned out.

Lefler Reunion 2016

We heading out to Woodland for the annual extended family Lefler Reunion.  Danielle was visiting from France with her two girls so we were excited to spend time with them.

Marae and Avery

Boonie and Sistine - his major crush

We got to use our new tent for the first time.  I bought it without Mason's opinion at the end of last summer.  He was very worried about my purchase... but approved after this trip!  Yay for a 10 man tent!!  The kids did very well.  Boonie and Marae sacked right out.  Adelyn ran around for a while and finally fell asleep right across my face.

Marae's dreams came true the next morning when she found a baby kitty.

We played old fashioned pioneer games.  Here Laura and Sydney are competing.  The best was when Laura and Tom competed in the leg wrestling contest.

Boonie and Gracie

Sistine, Rue, and Scotty
