Summer Lovin'

Okay, I know the title of this blog is so cliche, but it's true. I'm so glad that summer is finally here. Last week we had Stephen's parents visit us, and Linda watched James for us so we could go on a date. I can't remember the last time we went out to a restaurant sans bebe. It was fun, my only major beef was the fact that it took 45 minutes to get our food, which is pretty lame considering there were only a total of 6 of us at the restaurant. Technically I would vow to never eat there again, except the food was sooooo good. But, anyone that knows me knows I love ethnic food. (The restaurant is called Cedars of Lebanon. I think I would recommend just calling in an order an hour before you are going to eat and just picking it up, because like I said, the food was excellent!) Then Saturday my dad came to town. We went to the Veterans Water Park in Provo. It's only $4 per person so not a bad deal.

I was super excited to take James, but he ended up being really scared of it. Funny because usually he is a little dare devil. It took a really long time for he to warm up to it, and by the time he did it was time to go. He spent most of his time sitting on his towel watching all the other kids having fun.

Oh, by the way funny story. So, Stephen was watching James so I could swim a bit in the adult pool with my dad. Well, we were talking and treading water and I didn't see the guy behind me. My big two accidentally slid over his bum and his shorts got momentarily caught between my toes. I swear I totally was not trying to pinch his bum with my toes. That's weird. HAHAHAHA!
Then yesterday I went up American Fork Canyon with James and my dad. We didn't hike very far, but it was fun; poor Stephen had work and couldn't come.

My dad left this morning, but tomorrow we're all going up to northern Idaho to have a big 4th of July reunion at my parents. We'll be there about a week. I'm super excited, I haven't seen any of my siblings since last years summer rendezvous. BTW, Happy early 4th of July everyone!!!!!

I lived in Provo for, like, seven years and had NO IDEA that water park was there!!! I felt so ripped off when I finally discovered it (on my way out).

Camryn LOVED the water until she turned two. Then she wanted NOTHING to do with it. But this summer she's been a water fiend, leaping from the edge into Daddy's arms and bobbing around with her arm floaties. Every day she begs for more pool time. I'll bet James will like water--by summer's end or by next year!

And Karl ate at Cedars of Lebanon during an office meeting and RAVED about it--he's dying to take me. I'm glad you liked it!!!

We were so happy to see you when we were in Utah. I'm glad that you got to spend time with your dad, and that you are going to see the rest of your family in Idaho. Safe journey!
