Happy 4th of July. I had a small procedure on the 3rd so I did make some red white and blue treats and we had a great time at the Hansen's but I forgot all about pictures. The girls had their first holiday away from us but it was so normal to them since it was in Gridley and the same as it's been for the past few years. They had a great time!
We were very glad when we got to go pick them up from the airport on the 6th of July. They loved flying with Aunt Krystal and there were no flight complications! yea!
Whether it was night or day, we did quite a bit of swimming while Krystal was visiting. But then again, what else do you do in July in Arizona :)
Then the next was a the Desert Museum because everyone needs to go there!
The last adventure was the not so fun one. At 4 in the morning Terry and I headed to the ER and I ended up in the hospital for the next 5 days and had an emergency hysterectomy. Thank goodness Aunt Krystal was there to take care of all the kids for the first part of that then we had great friends that kept them and brought us food. Paij sent the flowers and the kids made the cute cards and the Hills and Dorns sent cute cards too. The day after I came home, Grandma Hunter came to help with the long recovery. It was great to have her here.
She got the kids out of the house so I could have some rest time!
Took the kids to Chuck E Cheese
Cymber had her first ice cream cone when we stopped at Ikea after taking Grandma back tot he airport. We got her new high chair there and she loves it!
The big shoe, and the Gandala. I was in a wheel chair because it would have been too much walking too soon so Cymber and Kasen took advantage and fell asleep on me. We were quite the spectacle!!
This is the view from our room. We were far enough away that the strip just looked pretty. And it wasn't a casino that we stayed in so that was really nice too.
The dads and older boys were often found on the frisbee football field. That's Terry up in the air for the catch (in the red)Tyden got waked in the face for a huge fat lip and his first of 2 head injuries for the trip. The second was a huge cut to the eye and black eye as kids were jumping off the Davis' boat into the lake. He still had a great trip though.
Next was the gauntlet. The grownups had squirt guns and the kids had to run through and try to stay dry - yea right. The day ended with a talent show and Cypress Tayla and Lexi gave a great cartwheel performance.
We left the reuion and headed to St. George where Jarom and Alyssa were sealed! I got to do the photo shoot and loved every minute of it, especially since Jarom was so cooperative. We really missed the Collins and Reinhardts but were sure glad that everyone else was there.
We then had a great few days at the Davis' second home, having Fathers day, playing and hanging out with family!!
Ryan got his keys locked in the truck. He, Haylee and Terry tried for over an hour to get it open and finally called a service and it took him like 3 minutes. urgg
Cypress and Tayla stayed another day in Utah and then went home with the Hunters for a 2 week CA visit with them and friends and the Hills. We went to the Hoover Dam on the way home. It was very hot but very cool and something everyone should see at least once in person.
Cymber is in motion! I put her in the middle of this blanket and found her like this, about 4 rolls away :)
The boys are enjoying the rain in our first monsoon experience. Cymber is sitting up and looking darling as usual.
