4th of July in Island Park
This is one of my most favorite holidays, and this year was one of the best! It wasn't our holiday with Kailee Bug, but were lucky enough to do some switching so we could take her with us! Angie is awesome! We got to spend 3 days and nights with my sweet grandparents, my dad, Uncle Brett, Linds and Joey, Brooklynn and Brody and our family friends Rhet and Ashley and their girls Cierra, Brinley and Ellerie. We had a blast! We ate lots of yummy food, played in the dirt, celebrated Brooklynn's birthday, sat around the fire, floated the Box Canyon River, spent the day in West Yellowstone and watched fireworks and watched the girls and Brod play! The kids were all so good and we were able to make lots of memories! I love my family!
We finally were able to get Kailee to a Bees game! She was super excited to ride Trax, and also to see the big ball park. She had just finished playing her first year of baseball, so the timing was perfect! She was in awe of the ball park! It was fun to see her face and watch her check everything out. Of course her favorite thing ended up being the playground. ;) She had fun playing with Evan, Hayden and Graham, Maddelyn and Jaxon, and Reagan. The kids even got to run around the bases after the game, which they thought was pretty dang cool! We love our Andrus family, especially when we can find the time to do things outside of our monthly family dinners. Thanks for the fun evening guys!!
First off, let me throw out this fun fact.. There isn't a county fair in Utah, or the West as far as I'm concerned, that can rival Box Elder County's! Not. Even. Close! We went to the SL County fair with K bug and it was such a disappointment! Well, she had fun, but it was nothing like I grew up with! I wouldn't live back in Tremonton for anything, but man that fair was fun! And huge! I really need to plan better next year and make sure we get her up that way for at least one night of the famous Rodeo! :) Anyway, K had a great time and was silly and hyper almost the entire time! We went to see all the animals, rode a couple of rides, and Kailee rode a pony! We had a blast, and I must admit, girl looks cute on top of a horse!!
The annual Lagoon visit! We were lucky enough to go twice this year! Once for Kailee's dance competition and again for Jake's work Summer party. I love his G&K Friends, and the fact they'll ride the big rides with me! :) We had a blast and Ammon and Amber even joined us! Lucky ducks have season passes! The kids had fun going back and forth from the Bat to Bombora a million times, and I loved being able to do the rides I normally can't! Such a fun day! We didn't get home until after 10, and once again (for like the 3rd year in a row!), with one awesome behaved little girl! LOVE HER!
Kailee's Birthday Party
It makes the end of Summer a bit more exciting when you have a special little one to celebrate! Happy 7th Birthday K bug!! Her mom and Jason hosted a darling birthday party! It was a bubble gum party, and such a hit! They played pin the bubble on Kailee (my fave!), made bubble gum necklaces and had a bubble blowing contest! It was fun for us to see her interact with her school and neighborhood friends! She was such a ham! We also had lots of fun with her for a couple of hours on her actual day (school day) where she got sprayed with silly string walking off the bus, and at a BBQ with our families! And as per usual.. growing up WAY too fast! Kbug, please slow down!
We had an absolute blast here! It was my first time, and I think I had just as much fun as Kailee! She LOVED being on the 'news', checking out the helicopter, playing with all of the hands on stuff, drawing on the big chalkboard, and just being a kid! Totally recommend visiting if you get a chance!
Between all of this, concerts, weekends at the pool, Ogden Temple Open House, and time as a family and couple! We had such a great Summer filled with SO many great memories! Thanks to our family and friends for making our time together the best!
