Summer Highlights Part 2



We visited Utah on the spur of the moment...The kids and I loaded up and drove to Utah on Sunday June 29th; we left Dave here to work. Unfortunately, I did not document the trip very well with my camera so I don't have pictures of all the people we visited. Darn it. It took about 11 hours to get there because of all the stops, one of which being a fatal error on my part. I stopped for lunch at a Quiznos, right next to a GameStop. Not a very quick stop! Oh well. We left at 6am so it didn't seem so bad to arrive in time for dinner.








We saw my grandparents, Kent and Carolyn, Bob and Vicki, Troy and Allison for dinner. We visited "the Chrzanowskis" , as Dave likes to call them. We went to the Farmington pool with the Egans (always a crowd favorite). Spent the day with Sarah, and had tons of fun with Grandma and Papa including shelling peas, making cookies and brownies, going fishing, going to the movies, and building model army tanks. Thanks for the FUN!



Dave arrived Thursday night on a flight from Denver. He nearly missed his flight, as per usual for Denver and Dave combined, but was in time for The Fourth with us (and some time at the beloved Layton skate park).




There's nothing better than the Fourth of July in Kaysville! We went to the parade all decked out in our patriotic outfits. We visited Jenny at the WalMart and picked up some fireworks. We had a BBQ at Grandma's with Bret and Sarah. Went to the fireworks with our dear friends, the Gerrishes. The treats were fabulous.





Come to find out, Rachel has joined forces with the boys in the family and she LOVES fireworks. I endure them, but now that I am so grossly outnumbered I guess I'd better lighten up. They set off an unbelievable amount on the fourth and fifth. Whew. That was a lot of noise and mess.










Jake's visit with Anson will remain one of his fondest memories of the summer. When are you coming here, Anson? It was great to see our friends and family in Utah. We love to see you and invite you all to come to Colorado Springs!
Seriously. Please come...
