24th of July Celebration

HAPPY 24th OF JULY!! we had a great time celebrating this day. Poor Porter wasn't feeling very well so I didn't get very many pictures taken. I didn't even get one of our family, so I was bummed about that, but oh well. after the parade we went to the park to eat and see what was going on there. Porter got feeling worse, so Josh took him home, while I stayed with the other two. It was fun to see and talk to people I haven't seen in a while. later that day, we went to grandma Mert's and let the kids get wet (of course I forgot to take my camera there) then we finished off the night with the fireworks. what a long day we had!!

awesome & sick Porter

for the first time in a while, we had an Utley family reunion. We went to Fish Lake. it was a lot of fun, with great food, good laughs, and plenty of rain and cold!! It started out nice, but by the end it was raining and cold. so that made for lots and lots of MUD! which makes it really un fun with kids. :) But overall, we had a great time. On the last day, the kids got to make shirts by using markers. they had fun doing it.

WOW I can't even believe my Brax is 10 today!! it seems like only yesterday I was holding him in my arms for the first time. how much he had grown! he is such an awesome example to his brother and sister, and we are so lucky to have him as a son. we really couldn't have asked for a better one! He is such a smart kid, it amazes me with how much he knows! happy birthday Braxton!! we love you very much!!

for the 4th of July weekend we went camping to Fish Lake with my family. we had a lot of fun! we had yummy food, great laughs, played baseball (even my mom played) played horseshoes, games, more laughing, and just relaxing! of course, I wasn't thinking to take pictures when we were playing games and most of the time out there, but oh well, it was still fun!

since it was sooo hot outside, the kids wanted to swim, and of course, Brynlee was so excited to swim! she would live in the water if she could! for some reason, she would wear her glasses while swimming and would not take them off. she would jump and fall in the water then flip over to her back and float and start laughing! it was soo funny. we were laughing at her ourselves!!

here she is when she would flip to her back! (note: she still has her glasses on) :)

enjoying the water

Saylor having some fun!

Brax enjoying the water also.

sun-bathing beauty!

gotta have a group picture of course!

Porter....need I say more??!!

this is a video of Brynlee jumping and landing in the water, of course its not the best ones she done cause I had my camera out, but you get the picture of what she was doing! (although you cant see her lips close up they were purple she was so cold, but she could care less)
