Sorry I have been MIA for a while but I have been crazy busy with all the summer activities going on, swim lessons 3 times a week. Let me catch you all up on what we have been doing. First of all, last month I reached a milestone....yes....I turned 30 years old!!! EEEEEk!! No, really it isn't that bad. I thought that it would be and I was a little freaked out at first, but then I thought about all that I have accomplished in those 30 years. I have a beautiful family and a wonderful life...oh...and I look good for 30!!! Haha! I had a wonderful birthday.
On July 2, Jacob celebrated his 9th birthday! I cannot believe that I have a 9 year old. Blows my mind. Jacob is such a sweet boy and a joy to have in our lives. He is very smart and loves to play video games and play with his friends. He also loves to swim and play soccer.
Cameron was loving the ice cream at Golden Corral
Miranda is such a goof!!
After dinner, we took the kids to Willow Park in Logan. Our kids LOVE Willow Park. It is so great! If anyone hasn't been to willow park with their kids, you should definitely go. It is like a small zoo. There are animals to see, ducks to feed, all sorts of birds to look at and there is a wonderful playground to play on after that is well shaded. The kids had a blast!
Cameron is obsessed with slides!!
I love this picture! My dad is pushing Alyssa on the swing! Doesn't that look like pure joy?! I think it is funny too!
One day while we were in Logan, we went to Codys parents house and they made Jacob a cake for his birthday. We had fun there trying out Jacobs new remote control Hummer that he got for his birthday. I had a picture of that but I deleted it accidentally.
The weekend of the 4th of July was very fun for us as well. We were planning on having a BBQ and fireworks at my sister in laws house with family, but she called me that day and asked if we could do it at my house. My brother in law had just had surgery and wasn't as recovered as he thought he would be. So the party was moved to our house and it all worked out and was a success and we all had a blast. We BBQed yummy burgers and hot dogs and enjoyed the company and the fireworks. We like to do fireworks with our neighbors because they have good ones and the kids enjoy it. Cody would let the kids take turns lighting some and that was a little scary to watch. Cameron was a little frightened of the noise so he just clung to me the whole night.
On July 12, we had our annual Rasmussen reunion that we do with just the immediate family on Codys side. We had a fun day. We had dinner together at the park, played games, volleyball and had a talent show. Then we went and saw a dinosaur movie at the IMAX theater in Lehi at Thanksgiving point. Here is a picture of all but 5 of the grand kids on the Rasmussen side. There are 4 of mine on the far left. (Brendan, Cameron, Alyssa and Miranda)
