Splash Bash

Cramers hosted their annual End-Of-Summer-Splash-Bash in their backyard. There were so many kids running around and having a great time! Our kids were no different. Slip 'N' Slide, several pools, sand box, sprinklers, etc. It was a fantastic few hours in the sun.

Yep, that's Luke, just trying to catch that bug that flew in there. :)

The cute hostess and hosts of the party! Thank you!

Tough Mudder

Bryan completed the "Tough Mudder" with two other friends. It is roughly a 10 mile course with some pretty crazy obstacles along the way.

The before.

The after.

Here are some of the obstacles they encountered along the way:

Sounds pleasant.

 Crazy people.

 And more crazy people.

I think Bryan really enjoyed doing this type of race and would try something similar again. Maybe even try out the loin cloth. :) They mentioned doing a couples' tough mudder next year. Uhh...I'll be the gal that takes the pictures! 

The BC

We road tripped it out to Brigham City to spend time with the Luke and Emma's cousins there. 

The highlight of the trip was attending my niece's baptism. It was such a special day for her and we're so glad we were able to be there! 

 One evening we decided to try out some ice blocking, it was a great time.

Turns out that ice blocking with an independent, sleep-deprived and hungry two-year-old doesn't jive too well. Crazy. He managed to get in a few fun runs.

Poor Peyton fractured his hip and is having to take it easy. No fun, especially in the summer!

One morning we went over to Logan and visited Willow Park. For just a few bucks, we thought it was a great place. 

Luke trying to corner the peacock. I remember as a kid chasing those peacocks with my cousins until one peacock smartened up and started chasing us! T-R-A-U-M-A-T-I-Z-I-N-G. I'm still scared of those things.

On our way out of Logan, we stopped at our favorite ice cream spot, Charlie's. We also toured USU's campus and Bryan relived the good ol' days. 

For family night we went up to the campground that is literally 10 minutes from my parents' home. I forget how nice that little campground is!

Went out to "the farm" and visited Great-Grandma Munns.

My Uncle Monte and Aunt Karen even pulled out the homemade snow cones, syrups and tractor rides. It is so beautiful out there. 

My mom volunteered to watch our kids so Bryan and I could attend a session with my dad at the Brigham City Temple.

There was a lot of fun in Grandma's and Grandpa's backyard.

This was hilarious to watch, kids and adults. Luckily, no serious injuries that day.

The baby pool turned into the kiddie hot tub. My dad somehow rigged the water from the hot water heater into this pool.

 My mom is a saint, I mean it. She is always playing with the kids or helping someone. 

The road trip to and fro went really well. These kids have smiles on their faces, but it was their mother who was having a hard time driving away. I thought I was over those tears of living away from family. Nope. Do those feelings of homesickness ever go away???

Oh, sentimental. We had a blast and can't wait to visit again. Hopefully, the grandparents will be rested up by then! :)
