Kick-off to Summer!

Since I seem to be too busy to blog just after events take place, I guess you'll have to get them all at the same time. So be forewarned, this post could be long, but it's mostly just pictures.
This first one is Lylli climbing a pole at the park on her birthday. Her class did their end of school party on her birthday! FUN! They had lunch in City Park and then went to Old Town to play miniature golf. She was the only one to get a hole in one on the 18th hole and got a ticket for a free game!

This is Jacob P. and Lylli. Jacob is Lylli's favorite friend! (Coincidentally, Jacob's grandmother was my voice teacher in college!)

Here are the girls being silly! A common occurrence at our house!

My birthday pictures didn't turn out real well this year, but all the girls got new swimsuits for their birthdays. Here they are modeling them.
This is Seryn telling me that this swimsuit is "mine."

We haven't had any HOT days here yet, but the girls had to run through the sprinklers everyday there for a while. (It's cooled off some now and I'm glad they haven't been asking. Maybe it will warm up again soon!)

And, this is how Seryn runs through the sprinklers! (She's terrified of water!)

Last weekend, our ward had a potluck dinner at the park. They also had a rocket launch. After the kids had been launching them for a while, Layla came to me in tears. She wanted a rocket. Shane was in the field helping Lylli fly her kite, so that left me to attempt the project. Here's our creation.
Layla was so thrilled and couldn't wait to try it out! Surprisingly enough, our rocket was one of the best-flying rockets of the evening!

The other night, the girls decided that Grandma was beautiful but needed to look exotic! So, they set to work. And doesn't Grandma look wonderful!

They had a great time! I remember doing similar things to one of my aunts as a kid only with hair combs instead of barrettes. Thanks, mom, for being such a good sport!

I love the pics especially your moms hair. :) I love summer activities.

Fun times! Mom looks great! About the same as I imagine Aunt Brenda looked when we "fixed" her hair.

I was always HORRIBLE at miniature golf, but I'd always get a hole in one on the 18th hole and have to go again. You're mom looks beautiful! (looks like something Miss Kiana would enjoy)
