Things I Loved This Summer

November 15th, 2016 in About Me


Shae during the summer got to sign up for speech therapy involving horses. Every week we went to the stables at 8am so this cute thing could fall in love with horses. She got to brush them, saddle them, feed them, and go on a ride. This girl adores horses and was in heaven all summer.

Farmers Markets are some of our favorite things. Tyler buys all the cheese he can find. Abby always finds the lavendar. We play with the bubbles, eat an early lunch, and find all the good baked goods.

The girls got to spend time with their grandparents. Fishing with grandpa and a BEE party with grandma.



I took Abby & Cameron to a midnight book release party. Can you guess what book? King’s Bookstore in SLC puts on some amazing events.

We were there for the ghostbusters movie opening, we were there for the party, we showed up in the right clothing. WE CRACKED UP THE WHOLE TIME!!


We wore matching dresses for the holiday :)


We went on one field trip with local family. Wish it was more, but its hard to get schedules together.

I gave in and let the girls color their hair the colors they wanted. Then at the end of the summer we chopped it off!



And we did some family and date night hiking. Not as much as last year, and not as much as I would have liked. But we did get some in!

    What a wonderful and beautiful family you have!! Where/whom do you have your horse therapy with??

    I hope you have as much fun in the winter, it’s harder to find ‘things to do’ during the cold :(

    Does look like a fun summer. I think that one picture is the first where the girls aren’t lined up by age. You mixed it and I like it.
