Now that summer is over, I’ll be back to a more regular posting schedule. Every summer I have great plans for this blog. This summer was no different I planned on focusing on a billion—yeah, that’s right… a billion—ways to make incredible smoothies and post them on the blog, but I never got around to it. Do I regret it? No, not really, although I missed all of you. Even though I made smoothies nearly every night and often for breakfast, it felt good to take a break from the ordinary schedule.
This summer I spent some excellent time with family and friends, which was a lot of fun. It was a good summer for me, despite working long hours at my FTJ. We took lots of trips and spent a lot of time bonding–awwwww. Let me share with you some of our good times…
Pictures after the break.
After looking through most of our summer pictures, I realize they don’t show a lot of our surroundings. I’ll have to work on that. Nevertheless, here we are.
On Father’s Day, my kids cooked me Swedish pancakes, also known as crepes.
We went to the 4th of July parade in Afton, Wyoming with my parents.
We (or rather, I) survived 3 family reunions. My wife and kids seemed to handle them just fine. Here the girls are with their cousin checking out the milk can dinner leftovers.
We took many rides on my parent’s Polaris RZR 4. It’s a lot of fun, and we just couldn’t get enough.
We all played hard in the water, time and time again, even when we weren’t supposed to.
We spent gads of time in the mountains. It was magnificent.
The kids played in the dirt everywhere we went.
We sat on logs, which is a lot cuter than it sounds.
We went hiking with friends. Maggie loved getting piggy back rides from Travis.
This is at the mouth of the Intermittent Spring in Afton, Wyoming.
We killed lots of innocent marshmallows, mwahahahaha!
Had a picnic with cousins.
Emptied a few more gas tanks on the RZR 4.
Had even more picnics… too many to count.
Found a double rainbow… OMG! What could it mean?
We found out that our girls were natural pirates…
We took our first official family photo, ever… But since we’re too cheap to buy the $200 disc of pictures, all you get is the blown up, pixelated thumbnail. 🙂
My brother and I took our oldest girls to Lagoon.
And with family, we had an overall, rockin’ awesome good time.
And that’s just a fraction of it.
I hope your summer was as good as mine, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below. In this case, links back to your own blogs would be just fine if you want to share pictures as well.
