30/52: july 2018

 two sweet cousins! we went to snowbird this week with phil's family and it was a fun week. it was especially for all the cousins who came to play with each other. our halls and rooms were filled with their laughter. imi and simon slept in a bunk bed one night (after snowbird) and they could not stop giggling and chatting until well after their bedtime. it's sweet to watch them together and see them all bond and create memories. ^^

^^ so great to give the job of reading to my children to the more experienced readers in the family. ;)
also, playing with magnatiles in the hall became a daily activity.  

^^ hike to cecret lake

 ^^ fell asleep in my lap

simon on the ropes course. he and phil got an activity pass one of the snowbird days and played hard. ^^

^^ at the end of the activity day, I was able to go with simon on the mountain coaster. we were told that we should either take off our hats or put them on backwards (to prevent losing them on the coaster). simon thought it was funny to wear it like this. ^^


^^ hanging out at the pool

^^  salon time with the girls! we were each given a handmade ticket and then were pampered and had special hair clips put in our hair. so fancy! 

ezra turned three months old this week and is officially no longer a newborn. he is a sweet, easy-going buddy and is well-loved by his two brothers. ^^

asher is our book lover. we put him in bed at naps and night with books and he'll look at them for a long time before he eventually (and peacefully) goes to sleep. his favorites recently have been the dr. seuss books. ^^
^^ on saturday, we had a 90th birthday celebration for phil's grandmother 
^^ we were in slc on sunday and stopped by a nc friend's new home to visit her and her new baby boy. ^^
