Thank you Grandma and Grandpa

Garpa and Gramar came to visit this weekend and had so much fun with their grandkids.  Maybe I should say my kids had so much fun with them!  We, (Mark and Meagan) also had a relaxing time in Salt Lake without the kids.  Yay!  What great people Gary and Marlene are to do this for us!  I cannot say enough how much this means to us!.  Selfless people I tell ya.
The other video was way too big to put on here.  I will have to figure out a way to send that to them.

Update! Update!

Why does blogger become more and more difficult with time.  It just took me over an hour to figure out how to login and get pictures from my phone on here.  I will spare you the details.  But is really worth an hour of my time?  Ughh.  I guess.
The only family photo we've had all summer.  Actually this was spring at the Payson temple open house.   Really beautiful temple by the way.  Lots of stairs with no stroller.  I am surprised I'm smiling with the big cramp in my upper back :)
 As you know we moved again and I took some great photos but kids deleted them.  Oh well.  In this picture you can see the trampoline with a fake net and our master balcony which the kids can stick their small Wright heads through and fall. Luckily that hasn't happened yet.
 This is an interesting piece of art on our property:)
 Kids love to play in this "wishing well" they call it.
 Horses in the backyard!  Our kids give them lots of attention and feed them grass and hopefully that is it.  2 times we have found the horses in our actual yard.  Since I know so much about horses I was able to lure then back to their area.  Actually one time I had to call the owner to do it.
Soon I will post a picture of our gorgeous Willow tree and swing, basketball court and cute school house.
Last week we took the kids camping.  I hate camping.  There is so much preparation and misery involved.  But boy do the kids love it.  I found this awesome spot right next to a real live swimming hole.  We spent all Saturday there then I drove Mark back to the house with Thomas and Truman.  Me and the rest of the crew went back cooked our tin foil dinner and slept in the tent.  It was the best experience I have had camping in a while.  The last few times we have tried it the baby would not sleep and cry and wake everyone up and it was miserable.  I think I can do camping with age 4 and up.  I would have kept Truman too but he was tired anyway.

Just tonight we went on a "Sunday drive" up squaw peak to watch the sunset.  It was very pretty against the smokey skyline (smoke from fires blown in from California).  We also saw a deer and a doe running 20 yards in front of us.  My kids are totally into wild animals.  I am blown away how much they know about them.  Probably from Wild Kratts.

In other news... Thomas has finally started walking!  Snowball our bunny got out of his cage and ran away!  Tai bawled for days.  Kids started school: Tatum K, Tag 1st and Tai 4th.  The school is 1 block away very convenient.  It has been a great summer!
