Last Week

We had a busy week last week.  To start off the week we got to lay sod at my parents new house.  It was really hot and it took us a little over 4 hours to do. Kaden got to water all the dry spots while we worked.    
Kaden got to do swimming lessons at one of my parents neighbors house.  They have a fun pool in their backyard and do swimming lessons all summer.  It was nice because they do semi private lessons so Kaden got alot of one on one attention and learned so much.  He had so much fun he was begging to do another week of lessons.
After lessons they got to go down the slide and jump off the diving board to practice their swimming skills. That was Kaden's favorite part.

My sister in law, Megan, brought her kids up and we spent a fun day with them.  We had a picnic at the park and then went to the pool in the afternoon.  Kaden and Nicolas had so much fun with their cousins.  We wish we could spend more time with them.
Taking a break! Kaden, Katie, Kristine, and Nicolas.  (My nephew Jacob was probably running away!)
This is my good friend Amy. She had her baby the day we got here.  We were able to spend the afternoon with them.  As you can see Nicolas made himself right at home.  He loved baby Lauren and even got to hold her for a second.
They have a great backyard in their new home and the kids enjoyed it.  Amy was the first person I met when we moved to Lehi a few years ago and has been a great friend to me.  Her sons Tyler and Alex are Kaden's good friends, so we all have a great time when we are here.  The adorable little princess is her daughter Abby, she is so cute! 
We couldn't stay away from the pool for long.  We spent the afternoon at the pool with my mom, sister Trisha, and sis in law Jessica.  Nicolas loves Trisha and was trying to get comfy for a little nap. 
Saturday evening we went down to Mona for my nephew Jacob's 2nd birthday.  We had a yummy bbq and enjoyed being together.  He got lots of fun toys and loved all the attention.  He really liked his snake birthday cake.

Hey Holly,

I found your blog through Marnae's. I can't believe how big your boys are. And that Amy had another baby. Time just flies. Looks like your staying busy and having a fun summer.

Take care,
