The past two weekends we have been camping. We camped at Bloomington Lake two weeks ago with Abe's family, and last weekend we camped at Washington Lake in the Unitah's with my family. Both trips were lots of fun.

Mom of the Year

Isn't that what you feel like when your child looks like this.

The reason Gage's eye looks like this is because he got a mosquito bite close to his eye. This also happened a couple weeks ago so I called the doctor and he wanted me to bring him in. Apparently he's allergic to mosquito bites. While I was there he was nice enough to do his eighteen month check up.
Here's his stats:
Weight 25 lbs (40%)
Height 33 1/5 inches (85%)

4th of July

We had an excellent 4th of July. This is one of my favorite holidays. I started the day running my very first 5K. I don't like running, but I'm still glad I did it. I seriously don't know how people can run marathons. I'll stick to the 5K's. Then we went to the Kaysville parade and carnival. After naps we had a BBQ at my parents house and then went to the fireworks. My brother brought his fire pit so we could make smores (which where soooo yummy), but a fireman came and told us we had to let it burn out. Who knew you couldn't have a fire on the soccer field :)

I loved watching my kids and nieces and nephews at the parade. Last year Gage was just a baby and Ryker was off-roading with Abe, so this was the first time they really enjoyed a parade. I thought it was so neat to watch all the kids put their hands over their hearts when the flag went by.

Wow, a descent family picture. That doesn't happen very often.

We had a great time in Powell a couple weeks ago. I'm just waiting to get all my sibling's pictures and then I'll post.
