Swim Party With Grandma!

A few weeks ago we had a swim party at my mom’s house!! It was so much fun! My mom made a water slide down the hill in the back yard, the kids played “ring around the rosies” in the kiddy pool, Kristy traced all the girls with chalk and they made themselves mermaids, the kids got to go “fishing” off the balcony for prizes, they got mermaid barbies, and we had a delicious lunch, and the kids got to eat Jell-O with fish in the water and on top! We had so much fun! Here are a few pictures from the day!

Trip to China!

We had such a great time with our trip to Hawaii that we decided to go to China last night. We put on our Chinese clothes, and Matthew dressed up as a sumo wrestler (which darin later informed me is a Japanese thing...but don't you love Matt's mini fu manchu?) What is more fun than eating chinese food on the floor of your lining room in a little fort? Here are some photos from the night.



Notice Matthew in the background...don't worry I'm not sitting on his head, but he did love the fort!!

Happy 4th and Gunnerson Reunion

We had a WONDERFUL 4th of July weekend!! It started early as we went up to our cabin Thursday afternoon. Darin and I watched “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and then visited with Nate and Janie when they came up. Their kids were so fun and cute. Friday we met up with Chris, Heather, Rick, Olivia, Geoff, Jadi, and all of their kids and the South Summit Rec Center. It was so fun! We had a good time swimming ( Matthew’s first time), playing racquetball, and climbing the rock wall. After swimming we ate a yummy dinner and headed back to the cabin and met mom and dad for marshmallows and smores. Saturday morning we went to the Oakley Parade, ate lunch, and went for a hike! It was so fun to see everyone again and be all together (except we missed Thom). Thanks Rick and Olivia for planning such a fun weekend! Here are a few pictures from our trip.












Matthew has started solids!
