The Best

Summers are long and exhausting for Micah and I. The kids and I play hard while he is stuck in the office working hard. This is a sweet ending to the day. Everyday.

*Taj wears nose strips and sleeps in his own room now because of his snoring. He can't breath in Utah.

Princess Festival

Eden got her hair and nails done. Livi noticed the nails right when we got hom.

Her fancy face painting. And ring pop paintng :)

It wasn't fun for me, but I love an excuse to be one on one with my kids. She was so sweet. I love my little princess.

Summer Bunnies

 We got bunnies. Three of them named Chester, Rex, and Rosetta (originally Eden). They are super fun. And stinky. The kids run out to make sure they have food and water everyday. Eden loves to hold Rosetta while the other two hop around and send Taj and I running after them.

This summer we also got Spike, a Horned Lizard. Some kids were going to have to set him free after their Dad brought him home from St. George. We agreed to take him because we were on our way to St. George a week later. We had to feed him live crickets. He was so gross and amazing all at the same time. The kids loved him, especially Taj who would hold him (I refused). We would find him burrowed under his sand, which surprised me.
When we got to St. George we kept him for a day, then found a great big dessert area for him. Taj got him out of the cage and we said our goodbyes. T set him down and he didn't move. We were starting to say how sweet that was and that he didn't want to leave us, then Spike pooped and ran off as fast as he could. Classic.
It's been a fun summer of animals.
