 We went to Bear Lake last week with Brenna and Justin. I love Bear Lake because it is perfect for kids to play in, it's so shallow. My girls just love to play in the sand.

 The first day was cloudy and got kinda cold so we went to our campsite.
 We didn't take many pictures while we were camping but this was breakfast the next morning. It was yummy.
 Jett liked to watch us play, but the poor boy is always in something pink.

 There was lots of people and birds for him to watch.
 The next day was really sunny and hot. It was perfect.

 Cambria got muddy at the cabin so she took a bath in the sink.
 This kid does not sleep well, he has never slept for longer than 4 hours at a time, and most nights he wakes up every hour or 2 hours, but at least he is a happy baby.
 They love to feed him, hold him, dress him, and give him baths. The are very helpful but they also make him mad because of all the hugs and too much attention. He cries almost every time Ashlynn gets near. I have to remind them that sometimes he likes to be left alone.

 We gave him some rice cereal the other day, he hated it.
 I love our garden, it looks even better than last year. We have already eaten some carrots a few days ago, they were small but good. This year we have yellow squash, zucchini, onion, red and orange peppers, raspberries, strawberries, red potatoes, 2 kinds of tomatoes, carrots, cucumber, and pumpkins.
 I had no idea that strawberry plants grew little arms out that anchor themselves to the ground. It looks like an alien plant to me. We had a few strawberries a while ago but they died and I haven't seen anymore yet.
 Yellow Squash. We have a few growing already.
 Pumpkin. We planted white and orange pumpkins, but I'm not sure which one this is.
 Tomatoes. I can't wait until they are ready to eat. We planted a bunch of tomatoes because I want to make  marinara sauce and try to can it. I still have salsa I made with Peggy a few years ago in our basement.

Princess Festival and 2 birthdays

 This summer so far has been very busy for us. We have gone on vacation a few times, had 2 birthdays and went to the Princess Festival in Utah. Sarah and Mark let us stay with them and we had lots of fun. I always like staying up and playing games with my family.

The girls got to dress up and meet the princesses. It was hot outside and windy but we still had fun.
 When Ashlynn saw her she ran to her and gave her a big hug, she didn't want to meet anyone else, she loved Cinderella.

 Cambria was the only one brave enough for a picture with Captain Hook.
 Tinkerbell gave them some fairy dust and blew some bubbles for the girls.
 Cambria as Rapunzel
 Ayla as Rapunzel.
 We got to listen to Rapunzel tell a story in a cave. Cambria Ayla and Ashlynn are in the front row.
 Ayla wanted her to make her hair glow. The girls were so cute.

 Hanging out at Ayla's house. My girls always ask if we can go there for a sleepover. They have so much fun with their cousins.
 This picture makes me laugh, she kinda looks like Brenna.
 Ashlynn woke up on her birthday to lots of presents and decorations.
 We went to Blast Off for her birthday. This is her favorite place and it was her idea to go.
 Tinkerbell cake.
 Cambria's birthday is on the 4th of july so it is always fun. We got up early for the parade, ate pizza, went to see Brave, opened presents and then went to the fireworks show. She planned her birthday and she did a good job because it was a fun day.
 Ashlynn gets Cambria's old bike now and she looks so grown up.
 I can't believe she is 6!
