Down by the River

Lately, we've been taking advantage of this wonderful summer weather. Seeing that there are so many things to do outside here in P-town, we decided to head out. Here are just a few of the things we've been up to this summer.

Here we are walking down the Provo river trail. Brooklyn really gained some confidence while riding her scooter as you can see. You'll see her on TV when the X-Games introduce 3-wheel scooter gymnastics. It'll happen.

I found myself a rope-swing! One of my favorite things in the world. You'll see me on TV when the X-Games introduce rope swing diving.

We have our little girl padded up so much that I don't think she would feel a bomb go off if it were in her lap. At least the pads are stylish.

Just getting our kids involved with the great outdoors. Even Blake seemed to take to the trail. He's going to carry on the rope-swing tradition. He wanted to try it out, but we thought that might not be the best idea.

Next, Brooklyn wanted to try out her tricycle. Don't let the handlebar tassels fool you. She topped out at about .05 miles per hour.

Backyard Blast

Brooklyn loved being thrown "on her bum" down the slip and slide.

This is the heaviest bowling ball!

Nothing says cheap summer fun like a home-made "water slide."

This is me showing Brooklyn how a grown man handles cold water being sprayed on his back.

This is her showing me how a 2-year-old girl handles cold water being sprayed on her.

Our Happiness!

Happiness is actually what we call him. He is just always smiling!

Well, almost always.
