A Bonding Moment

Heather really did pull it out eventually but I didn't get it on camera,
Jack didn't even know it had come out yet, so funny!

Make it Snappy!

We made a quick trip to Utah earlier this week to celebrate some pretty big events!

First, was fireworks at Grandma Murph's house for 4th of July. Aunt Heather even lit some off in the rain for the boys, we love our great aunts!

Next, was Nick's 31st birthday. He came back down to Springville after work Tuesday and we had birthday dinner with Grandma and opened some gifts from the kids. On Wednesday we met him and uncle Brad at Tucanos Brazillian Grill for lunch, which was delicious, as always.

The kids and I hung out at the Gateway Mall in Salt Lake while we waited for dad to get off work. We played at the Children's Discovery Center for most of the afternoon then cooled off in the fountains afterwards. It was a really great day.

Scherer Family Reunion

We recently had our Scherer family reunion at the West Piney Girls Camp. It was so much fun seeing all our family that we rarely get to see. It was beautiful the entire time we were there, perfect weather. There was no chance to get bored, either. There was a ton of stuff to do. The cabin is up on a hill and down below is a huge field for baseball and other sports, swings, outdoor bowling lane, hiking trails, and a huge slide to get there! I swear I never saw my boys unless they were hungry or time for bed, it was great!

GO Green Monsters!

This was the first summer we've put the boys in soccer...and it will most likely be the last! For the most part it was miserable. Every single game, except for the last, they would both be in tears at some point.

They couldn't run fast enough, they never got the ball, the other team always got to kick the ball, they were tired, they were cold, it was too windy!

Neither of them were very aggressive in trying to get to the ball and kick it. BUT! They both managed to score a goal at some point during the season, they loved bring treats and drinks when it was our turn, they got trophies, and absolutely no tears during the final game! Yay!

We're not giving up on sports just yet. Maybe they're not soccer players but there's got to be something they'll end up loving! They really want to try baseball next... and karate and gymnastics, and roller skating, and swimming.
