Fun in the sun

Summer is finally here!
The boys have wanted me to fill up their swimming pool for weeks now. So this week we finally got to do it. We had their friends come over and had a water party.
The bigger boys jumped on the tramp with the sprinkler underneath it.

Dylan learned how to do a knee flip and land it. He is so excited. I told him to do one and I would take his picture. Well, he ended up do 5 or 6 I would take the picture to soon or too late. Finally I got a good one.

Carson looks like a bug.

Shawn had to find little ones for him.

On fathers Days we met Blair’s family at a picnic area in Big Cottonwood Canyon. It was really pretty up there. I took advantage of the beautiful surroundings for pictures.

I am so proud of myself for getting this picture of all the kids. They are all look at me.

(With the exception of one crying).

Camp Kiesel!

Dylan went on his first day camp! He went with his scouts group to Camp Kiesel.
I had to get him up and ready at 6 in the morning. That was to early for me.
Then was home at 4.
He wanted to take the camera so we could see it.
His pictures actually turned out really good.

The boys have so much fun there. Blair remembers going up there as a child and how much fun he had. It looks like a neat place.

There were lots of activities for them to do like, canoeing, shooting guns and arrows. Dylan made a leather thing. (i don't know what it's called)
There is a store there to buy stuff. Dylan bought a slingshot and 2 rabbit skins and of course candy.

One special lady!

Lucy is 86 years old and has lost her eyesight; her daughter (Carol) brings her to my salon every Wednesday morning. Lucy has been coming to the salon for over 11 years. They drive all the way from the Rose Park area.
I have been doing her hair for 4 years now. Even thought the boys have never met her. They still call her Grandma Lucy.
Lucy is one of those ladies that everyone loves.
Her and her husband were married June 24th, 1940. He passed away 40 years ago due to cancer. She still lives in her house. Her grandchildren and great grandchildren live there to help take care of her. Even with her eye site gone she still love to crochet dish towels, listen to the jazz and bees on the radio and she love to listen to cooking shows.
Lucy husband (Lou) was an executive vise president an Electric Company. The company would fly all over to do electrical work. There were many times that Lou would call Lucy up from work and tell her to get ready he was coming home to get her. He wouldn’t tell her were they were going to go. Then they would get in the airplane and fly to different place. One time they went to Hawaii just for lunch.
Lucy is always thinking of other people. She is so kind and caring. She loves my family and me like we were part of hers. She is always giving the boys money if they have a something special coming up. She is a very sweet lady.
