July 2015 - Goodbye to Gma & Gpa, Girls Camp, Convention, and California

We had to say goodbye to Grandma and Grandpa Sweeny because their year in Utah is over.  I know Mom (Grandma) was excited to get home.  We'll miss having them so close!!  It's been wonderful to have some immediate Sweeny family nearby and to see so much of them.  Luckily, they'll still be visiting frequently to check in on Granny. We tried to spend as much time with them over their last week here as possible.  We spent the 3rd of July visiting a museum on University of Utah campus that I didn't know existed, but it's part of their Wonderlab pass and it was great to see something new. We then spent the evening of the 4th together playing with fireworks.  They watched the kids while Kyle and I went to Stadium of Fire to see Journey.  It was an amazing show and all of the 80's music did my heart good. The kids waving to the fire truck during the 4th of July parade. Summer was busy from a Young Women's perspective.  We wrapped up a Ward Youth Conf

June 2015 - Father's Day, superheroes, and fun with Maria

The kids are definitely at the age where they play off of each other's imaginations and it's really fun to see what they come up with.  They love dress ups and superheroes.  One of their favorite books is Kyle's Marvel character guide so they can learn all about the dozens of superheroes and villains and all of their special powers.  A few pictures to show you what I mean... They thought this "spaceship" (box) was the best thing ever and played in it for days in every room of the house.  I love their creativity and having them run around together as such great buddies. They are really good at "protecting me."  If someone shoots me or Kyle with a nerf gun in our friendly family wars, Tyler immediately runs to guard us and says "don't shoot my Mommy (or Daddy)!!"  Here he is "keeping me safe from the bad guys" as "Lobster Man" while I make them waffles on a Saturday morning. We had a lot of fun celebrating
