We Love Boating!

We've been out boating twice this year! (so far) Once with the Callaway's and once with the Shepard crew. It was a lot of fun and we are so thankful to have family with boats! Thanks for taking us guys!

Owen loves to kiss the girls, even if they are his cousins!

Summer Fest Weekend!

Here we go! On our way to the Orem Summer Fest parade! Owen's first parade. Of course he wasn't paying any attention to it, but oh well.

The parade wiped him out big time. No fire works for us, dang it.

Okay yes I did the baby contest. I got succored into it by my two lovely sisters. No he did not win, but was the cutest baby there! Of course all of us moms feel this way about our own. He didn't want to have anything to do with the judges. He was staring at them like, Who are you?
Our cousin Jackson did the contest with us! Every time Owen is next to him, he just can't help but touch him. I know Owen, he has cute chubby checks! Sorry Jack.

My friend's mom does flowers for weddings. Alyse has always wanted to learn about flower arranging, so we called on Julie to teach us! I went on Friday to kind of help out for a wedding and learned a thing or two about flower arranging. Here is my first arrangement. It definitely helps to have the flowers already picked out for you to arrange though. That was fun when can I come again?? What to see some of the other Weddings they have done chick... OUR PERFECT ARRANGEMENT

We finally got to go swimming last week! It really wasn't that warm, but anything above 60 degrees and the kids think it's paradise. (although they spent a fair share of the time in the hot tub.) We really hope that the hot sunny weather returns soon. We're starting to look really pasty.
At first Owen didn't know what to think of the water. It was a lot cooler than his bath tubs are. But after a few minutes of warming up to the water, he couldn't stop splashing himself. He also loved drinking the water. yeah, what a treat.
