I was going through my pictures and realized I never posted the cute pics of Beck from Summerfest. It was the second weekend in June, so yes it's a little late. It was fun to get out and it was one of the first good days we had all spring. Plus who doesn't loved over priced carnival food?
Years 1, 2 and 3 of Beck's life were filled with a fear of water. Bath time sounded like we were performing water torture on the poor child. Since we will be going to Florida in a few weeks and seeing as how it's entirely too hot and humid there, we knew we would be spending a lot of time at the pool. So we took the kids out on a test run on Saturday. Thankfully my parents came along with us to wrangle all my crazy kids!
We went to the Lindon City Pool, which I love. It's such a kid friendly pool!
That is just half the pool, and I love the pirate ship slides!
Beck is feeling a little more confident this year and we were there from open until close! We couldn't get him out of the water, except to eat a few chips
Beck still doesn't like water on his face, so the lazy river that had a water fall in it was not an enjoyable activity for him. But considering last year it took my about 2 hours to get him to put his feet in the water, I think this was a great improvement!
Around 4 o'clock the twins were tuckered out
Tate and Trey don't have much fear, of anything. They loved getting splashed and had a blast going down the big slide. They got in trouble several times for going down the kiddie slides head first on their back and stomach depending on what they felt like.
We didn't get sunscreen around their eyes very well, so they have sunburned rings now and look like raccoons. It's so sad.
After a long day of swimming we went down to see the Stadium of Fire fireworks. We had a good spot on the lawn by the hospital
Yes, my children take their swords with them everywhere. Here is another awesome Beck pose
The ice cream man drove around and parked right in front of us. So after five minutes we gave in and got the kids ice cream. Beck got a spiderman and after about 2 licks he ended up on the road. We then got to listen to him cry about his ice cream through the entire firework show.
Beck was still crying in the car on the way home. He told me "I am so tired" So I replied "Close your eyes" He looked at me as if he hadn't thought of that. He was instantly asleep.
I love throwing birthday parties for my kids! Since they are all June babies I combine their birthday funds and throw one awesome party, if I do say so myself. Back in March I was reading Design Dazzle and they had a post on Toy Story parties and using toys they already had. Seeing as how there are few Toy Story toys we don't own I figured this was a great idea.
I made the invites myself. Simple, but by the theme.
For whatever reason, this picture would not rotate!
This year we chose Cherry Hill Park, which I love because it's hidden away from all the busy roads.
I have been married to Randy for 6 years and we have 3 beautiful boys. Beck, 4, and the twins Tate & Trey, 2. And our newest addition Emma born on March 15. I attempt to work from home as a bookkeeper.
