10 Days of FUN and SUN

We just got back from a long and fun trip to Lake Powell. We all had so much fun with the Park family as well as the Zollinger family! We were really lucky to be able to do both trips--because the weeks over lapped this year.

I didn't think Ryan would do as well as she did in the water. When we swim and tub at home Ryan is very hesitant to do much and she HATES, and I mean HATES, getting water on her face and head. However, she did so well! In fact, I am going to have to take her to the doctor so that they can remove the gills that she grew while there! We totaled the amount of time she had in the water one day and we figured that she was swimming for about SIX hours that day. My guess is that six hours in the water was average for this little fish!!! After that amount of time in the water your feet look like this...
This little girl did so well! She rode the tube forever with her Papa, Grammie, and cousins Dax and Riley. She also rode the molecule with her Dad, and Beau, and cousin Bode! Aside from swimming all day everyday, she also let me take her down the slide. Of course we couldn't land in the water because if she gets water on her face we have to pay for counseling for the rest of her life! ...So we decided to go down the slide and land on the molecule. It was fun but once was enough for her!

While at the lake I also confirmed my suspicion that I married a GHETTO fisherman! Here is Jared in the worst fishing attire ever! He loves to fish, but I guess the fish only bite if you don't look ridiculous! I love this man!!
He even insisted on bringing his float tube and fins! I think sometimes that this guy is the most crazy and polar opposite of myself... I guess that's why we work so well!

Bike Riding

Today Jared went out with Ryan and taught her to peddle her own bike. She picked it up so uber fast it almost makes me sad. At first she could only just peddle. But after a little while she was able to stear herself around too. I can't believe how fast she is growing up! Please someone tell me how to stop her from growing up!!

Also, we are watching my sister's "killer" dog... King. We call him Kingdom for short. He and Ryan are pals now. Although she gets scared when he barks and when he plays a little rough. It makes me want to get her a dog, but I would rather have another kid than a dog any day of the week!

July 4th

So we all got together as a family and had a blast over the long weekend. All the kids loved playing in the pool! Natalie's kids are little sun sponges though. It's like they just sit in the sun for a few seconds and you can just watch them change color! I wish I were that way. Ryan on the other hand is so fair! We keep her covored in the 50 sun block just to keep her from turning into a lobster!

Ryan and Dax were the only ones who never took a break from the water! They were both little fishes! Although Ryan is really quite timid in the water, and hates getting her face wet, she loved swimming with her grammie, papa, Aunts, uncles, and all the cousins!

Ryan and Riley also really enjoyed boxing each other as well as anyone who would let them punch on them! I had a blast just watching the girls giggle as they punched each other in the face!!
