In July- Owen and I got to take a 10 day trip up to Spokane. It has been a very hot summer in AZ and I was really looking forward to a little cool-ness and letting Owen play outside more.
While I was there, my good friend Ashley Larson got hitched! It was so fun to attend and see how happy she and Adam were. Here's some of the clan who made it to the wedding!
AM, Me, Ash, Jessica, Falycia
Sue (Ash's mom) asked Jessica and me to do a little song-tribute to Ash at her luncheon. So Mom changed the words to Ice Ice Baby - and Jess and I did a little rap. I'm sure it was quite entertaining!
Me at the wedding- When we were in UT, Amy cut my hair, and I've really loved it!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAVANNA!!!! The Kimball's came up to Spokane too! YAY! We celebrated Savanna's 4th B-day together. Owen was sure happy to spend a few days with her!
Owen in his element. He loves "neigh's" at the moment
Sunday afternoon we had a picnic at Manito Park. It was amazing. the weather was perfect, there was REAL grass (don't see that too much in AZ), and huge trees ! Oh how I've missed Spokane! After we ate, the boys had a sweet game of laser tag!
One afternoon we spent at the local pool by Annie's house. Owen LOVED this little slide and played on it almost the whole time. We go swimming a lot in Phoenix- but I haven't found a place like this. It seems like there are only splash pads- regular square pools- or water parks. Nothing that has a little play area for kids similar to what this is, unless we want to pay $30 to get in.
One evening we went out on the boat with the Robinson's. It was so much fun! This was the 2nd time I have ever "wake-surfed" in my life. It took me 2 tries to get up, and I couldn't let go of the rope without falling. It was a lot of fun, and I was sore for 3 days afterward!
LOVE this face. Owen loves being on the boat.
Jess & me!
Grannie took Owen and me downtown one afternoon. Owen loved feeding the ducks!
Love spending time with Grannie!!
Feeding the garbage-eating goat! - a must if you are ever in downtown Spokane!
We got to spend time with Ryan's family too while we were there! This was the first time we saw Jarod since he got home from his mission. It was so fun to hang out. Here, we're on our way to the park to play
Had to stop and see the goats!
Also, right before we left for Spokane, we announced that we are expecting another baby!!!!
Don't know the gender yet!!??
