Oh, What Do You Do In The Summertime?

Ok, this is my attempt to catch up on our complete summer. Picture overload ahead? You can count on it.

Who's surprised that baseball made our list of things we did this summer? Quincy had her first year of t-ball and was hilarious to watch. Figuring she has grown-up at the fields, we weren't surprised one bit when she started telling the other girls on her team how to play the game.
Tanner spent the summer playing his last year of machine pitch and also traveling around with his other team, Cedar Stix. I'm loving watching him improve and try to be just like his big brother.
Treyson made the Cedar American 11-12 year old all-star team. Their team ended up taking third place. Treyson hit two home-runs that are now proudly displayed in his room.

Utah Summer Games
Both of the boys participated in their first USG. Treyson played both basketball and baseball, and Tanner played baseball. We'll just say that Trey's basketball team has got to do a little growing if they'll ever stand a chance against the big boys! Both of the boys' baseball teams ended up taking third place and receiving the bronze medal. Pretty cool hardware!
We're also lucky that Grandpa Cowan works for the Summer Games because he always scores us awesome seats for the Opening Ceremonies! The fireworks are always the best! Fourth of July

I think my little firecrackers are pretty dang cute!
Hangin' with the Cousins

We are so blessed to have cousins that we adore! The kids love spending time together and being wild and crazy!

Outside Fun
We decided to get a trampoline this summer and it was definitely money well spent! The kids loved hooking the hose up to the rails to stay cool and also had many sleepovers out there. A lot of time was spent either at Grandma Esplin's swimming pool or outside on the slip 'n slide.
Another of our favorite things to do is light-up the fire pit in the backyard and roast yummy marshmallows! Most of our time though is spent blowing out Max's flaming ones!Family Reunions
Devin and Melissa were gracious enough to host the Esplin reunion this year. We all headed over to Castledale, Utah to spend a few days together. We were able to see a rodeo, a pioneer pageant, go boating on the reservoir, and go swimming at the rec center. Plus, we did a whole lot of eating! Max hadn't been potty-trained too long before we went to the reunion, so you can imagine there was a lot of {this} going on!

Whew! We made it! Hmmmm....four blogposts a year; one for each season. At the rate I'm going, that might just happen!
