Our Summer

School started on Monday so I figure now is as good a time as any to let everyone know what we did with our summer. It was fun and it was filled. I guess you could say we had a fun filled summer. So besides frequenting the park with friends and spending some time at the pool, though not much because we are still afraid of crypto, here are some of the things we did this summer.

Sam and I went on a trip with Grandma and Grandpa to Reno, Nevada for the baptism of our cousin, Sydney. Here is Sam and Grandpa.

There were several times on this trip and throughout the summer where I would have liked to do this:

At some point this summer, my kid became a thug. Not sure what gang he belongs to but I'm pretty sure the hazing has something to do with peeing your pants.

We got to go to Virginia City, Nevada and ride on a train. This is the train we rode on. It was awesome.

And someone gave Sam a quarter which he bought a railroad spike with and then burried it in his cousin's front yard later that day. We never did find it. This is him and the long lost spike.

We got to bring cousin Allynn home with us, which was cool and exciting. Her first night with us we got to go to a Bees game.

Becky and Parley Pants came to the game too.

Parsley had to keep herself busy though.
She blew bubbles and puked on the bee.
So the bee got mad and stung Sam.

Allynn had a monster jaw breaker that went everywhere with us. We tried to talk her into letting the bee autograph it but no, then she couldn't eat it. We also told her she needs to write a book called, "Summer of the Jaw Breaker" or "Journey to The Center of The Jaw Breaker", so be sure to watch the book stores for that one.

If you look very closely you can see Parley Marley's puke on the bee's yellow stripe, just under the magazine he's holding. We are so classy. Don't worry, I cleaned it off him before he left our box.

Sometimes the game was a little too loud, but no joke - Parlayna was happy as long as the Bees were winning and when they fell behind she got really grumpy. But then they pulled it off and won and she smiled all the way home. Seriously!

It was fun and I miss them. They ditched us and moved to Nebraska of all places.

We also did fun stuff like going to Payson Lakes twice and watching fireworks and other stuff, but I didn't take pictures so it's like it never happened.

Here is Sam on his first day of SECOND GRADE! Which do you like better - My little weirdo or my little thug?

I love the pukey story. That is hilarious. I am hoping I get the opportunity to puke on the bee myself tonight, in protest of Harold's work making us go to the dang game.

I like Sammy the thug, makes me smile.

If it has to be one of the two make it Sammy the thug. Sounds like a fun summer!

Looks like you had a fun and busy summer! Sam is such a character. Reminds me a lot of his DAD! Matt has always been so full of life and personality.

I know! What the heck am I doing in's hard to believe I'm so far away. But, it doesn't seem like it when I can keep up with everyone through blog...well, it's not as hard with the convenience of blogs.

I miss Sammy so much! I think I'll go with the funny one, though I do like the gansta one too!?!?! Choices, choices!
