Bass Lake 2014

Back on the last week of July, we went on our annual trip to Bass Lake with the Baron gang. Josh has had such a busy schedule lately with work and LSAT studying, he wasn't able to join us. But I took the girls and drove up with my mom and sisters. Girls trip! We had a great time. My girls love being with their aunts and having our usual routine thrown out the window. We had a great time on the lake and at the pool swimming. I always love getting the chance to get back out there and wakeboard. Lots of fun memories at this lake we've been coming to for many years.

Fourth of July

We started the holiday festivities at our ward's pancake breakfast. Always a fun occasion. June had a blast with her friend Rylee in the bike parade. After that we went to the Baron BBQ and pool party and ended the night in RSM watching the lakeside firework show. Our favorite tradition in RSM. It was a great day! Love our country and those who serve it!

Pool Party Time!

waitin' for the fireworks
kids went crazy for all the neon light sticks

Hope everyone had a happy and safe 4th!

Back in mid-june, our big ballerina girl had her first dance recital. We joined a dance class back in February and June was having lots of fun with it. Every so often though, June would get really shy even though she was really good at following the teacher, she just wouldn't always feel like participating in classes. She loved it on other days though! We were committed to the recital but I was super nervous if June would even participate on stage. She was happy and having fun backstage with her class and loved getting all dolled up. Such cute girls! When it came time for her actual dance, she was too scared and just froze on stage! Bummer! But at least she went out there. They did a tap number and also a ballet number. It was sad for me because I know she is really good when she tries and wants to join in, but oh well. She tried out dance and now we are taking a break from it. It was a fun experience for her at least. I'm happy she gave it a shot. 
And the pictures we have are just so fun.
