Our Salty Adventure

Yesterday Logan asked Sophie if she wanted to go to the beach. She was so excited she could hardly contain herself. She gathered her floating fish ring and her swimming suite. I packed the diaper bag and grabbed a few towels and we were off to the luxurous beach of the Salt Lake valley better known as Antelope Island. It was a great time! Both kids had a blast swimming in the salty warm water.

Here are a few pictures of the fam enjoying themselves in the water

Sophie had a hard time sharing the beach with the millions of brine flies that swarmed all around us. Because of this we couldn't get her out of the water. This was the one area where you weren't covered in flies. When asked if she wanted to get out she would respond "No, I stay in the beach!"

Collin had a hard time adjusting to the salt water. He kept splashing the water in his eyes and then rubbing it in. Ouch! Poor guy! I ended up carrying around a towl and a bottle of water for face washing.

Summer Fun Almost Done

It has been an awesome summer. We have been so busy going and doing. Our weeks have been full of swimming, the zoo, lagoon, and parks. Both Sophie and Collin find it so much fun to be out and about. Sophie will wake up in the morning and ask to go to the zoo or lagoon. She is a girl who knows what she wants, well most of the time!!

Here are some pictures from one of our many trips to lagoon. Sophie has become quite a dare devil. She started out doing only the kiddie rides, but after going with cousins several times she has expanded her ride options to some of the bigger rides. Her new favorite is the Tidal Wave. she raises her arms and screams every time. It is the funniest thing you have ever seen. You can't help but laugh.

Although summer is coming to an end, we still have a few great adventures ahead in September to look forward to.

Sophie turns 3!

Yesterday was Sophie's birthday. It was such a fun day. It was her first birthday that she actually understood what was going on. She was so excited. She spent the day talking about cake, presents, party hats, "PINK" balloons, and grandmas and grandpas. She totally scored on her presents and has been having a blast playing with them.

Sophie was a pro at blowing out the candles on her cake. She thought it was so much fun that she had to do it twice!

Collin also had a great time celebrating Sophie's birthday! He seemed to enjoy some of her toys more than she did.

Definately a great day! We are so thankful that Sophie is in our lives. She is such a fun, sweet girl. We can't imagine life without her. She brings a lot of excitement in our lives. Here is to 3 great years and many many more.
