August Catch up

Hardy's work Lagoon Day happened to fall on Jack's birthday this year so we had a fun way to celebrate his special day. He likes the boats and playing in the water, HATED the airplanes and the cars, made us take him on the Merry-Go-Round about 50 times, then discovered the joys of Bulgy the Whale and we just watched him go on that the rest of the night. It was a really fun day.

The next day Jack and I went with HopeKids to the Utah Museum of Natural History where he got to dig for bones and look at bugs. The highlight was the dinosaur show where they have the kids help recreate the time period when the dinosaur lived by making noise and dressing up as bugs and plants, then they brought out a very real looking dinosaur that walked around. This thing walked right past us and Jack jumped off my lap and ran toward it excitedly asking, "I ride it?" Hmm...I don't think the poor person in the costume would like that very much, but he did get to pet it and had a great time at the museum.

To celebrate the end of summer we hosted a little 'Homemade Ice Cream" party at our house and invited a bunch of our neighbors. I made my favorite Key Lime Pie Ice cream, my friend Shiloh made a fruit filled sherbet, and Heidi made a big batch of vanilla. We asked everyone else to bring toppings. It was lots of fun and we may make it a tradition.

Jack and his buddy Jenna loved their ice cream cones.
