We're back!

Dustin had to go down the the big scouts camp and so did my brother in law, Jeff, so Britt and I decided to have me and the girls come down and stay with her and PARTY. We stayed with mom for a few days then went to Britt's. July 1st we went to the Raymond parade and then headed back to Cardston for the rest of the day. We took the kids to the party in the park and tried to wake them  up for the fireworks. Kyla was the only one who would wake up, so the rest slept in the car.
Dustin and I got Strep throat. AGAIN. Seriously. Not as bad this time but we got a swab and it came back positive AFTER Dustin left for camp so we had to get him his meds, luckily the stake president from Cardston is a doctor and took his prescription out for me.
We celebrated Dad's birthday. Went to Waterton. Got family pics done. Went on a date with Jeff and Britt (by the way, bowling was way more popular when I was younger) Went to a family reunion. Tanned (yay). and just kept so busy. I survived the week without Dustin and had so much fun. Here are a TON of pics. I'll explain a few but it took long enough to load them!
Here we go.

July 1st!

 She was going across the monkey bars all on her own.


 TERRIFIED of the sprinkler. Hilarious.

 Date night (Laken came too!)

 Happy Birthday Gpa/Dad! 
Breakfast surprise


 Her massive sucker got stuck in her hair. She wasn't too impressed. We laughed pretty hard.
 Family reunion!

 Cutest picture ever!!

So Kyla has been obsessed with Transformers movies lately, and the other day she told me she wanted a bumble bee car and asked what it was called. So now she wants a Camaro. Not too much to ask for a 5 year old. So our friend works at a dealership and we stopped by to see him and she asked if they had Camaro's there. Hilarious. But they did and so he let her sit in one! She was so excited! Now every car that passes that looks like one, she asks if it's a Camaro, and most of the time, it is! There are a ton of them up here.

 Phew. That was a long one.
Anyways that's about it and what we've been doing the last 2 weeks! Busy busy! Now my whole July calendar is empty. Weird. Lots of park days I guess!

It looks like such a fun trip! It's always worth it to party it up with sisters when your husband is away, so much better than staying home alone. Cute necklaces for the girls on July 1, and I love that picture of the twins on the bike, adorable!

Love all the pictures. Going home is the best. Too bad we didn't randomly meet up in Waterton again, but it looks like you chose a better day than we did for weather! lol.
