June and I left for the airport at 4:30a.m. We were in comfy clothes. OF COURSE one of my luggage doesn't make it, which in the end was actually a blessing, because I decided to rent a car to head to Spanish Fork, so I was all by myself with June, a stroller, carseat, one piece of luggage, her diaper bag, and my purse. I was a sight to see trying to carry all of these items. At one point I looked down at June and realized I pretty much was holding her only by her head, we repositioned and moved on. comical.
I made it Spanish Fork, hung out with my sisters, let my nieces paint my toes and finger nails, and enjoyed out night.
The next morning we all loaded up in the car and headed to Salt lake to meet up with my mom, Megan, and Shay to go school shopping for the weekend. This has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember, So it's super fun to carry on this Tradition with my Niece's and my own daughter. We shopped, and shopped and shopped. It was so fun. The little girls were all troopers and there were only a few whimpers of hurt feet at the end of the weekend. We had a fashion show and everything. I don't really have a whole lot of pictures, I'm not sure why since we took about a million, but well ya know...
Don't mind June in her scandalous outfit.... Goodness girl she is showing what her momma gave her.
We had a family reunion on Sunday and then Megan and I headed down to Rexburg with my parents to spend the week before the Triathlon. We had so much fun watching these two girls together. Samantha is 3 months younger than June, so they are super close in age, and they really had fun together.
My dad put them in the little red car and drove them around the yard for hours. THEY LOVED IT!!
I MEAN COME ON WITH THIS!!! ADORABLE!
We love to swing, and I think this Picture portrays June of her joy!
Tuesday we headed to Rigby lake so I could do a practice swim in open water. PANIC ATTACK! It was fun though with the girls, and shay and her kiddo's came too. We had a great little picnic and had fun swimming in the FREEZING WATER!
Wednesday was full of eating out, trips to Porter's (OF COURSE) and laughing and having fun with the girls and my sister and me.
That night my mom had a work party at Rexburg Rapids. It's a great little water park, and very kid friendly. It was later in the evening so we didn't swim too much, but it was still fun to splash in the water.
Thursday my other two sister's came, and Friday we really just hung out and had fun!
Saturday was the Triathlon. Oh the Triathlon. No really it wasn't that bad. This year we did a team in the intermediate. So really all I had to do was swim a mile. A LOT harder than I thought. Oh man. It was great to be there with my sister's and my Dad was our little supporter, and my mom watched all the kids. WOW!AMAZING PARENTS! We laughed so much during the race. and
we WON SECOND PLACE OVERALL!
That night we took it easy and had a delicious picnic at the house and enjoyed just being with everyone.
I really love my family very much! It can be hard living so far away from them, but it almost makes it better when I do get to see them. So excited for the next trip in December!
