It has been fun to leave memories on other people's blogs, so I figured why not try it out myself?

As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember! Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you (if you alreay haven't). It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you have a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you!


Brynlee went to Dance Attack a dance convention last week in Park City and it was her first convention! I was so impressed with how well the girls did at listening and paying attention. It is hard for 5 and 6 year olds to dance for four to five hours a day but they did great! It was so much fun to room with Kath, Tiff and Tai. Bryns was thrilled that she got to share a room with Mads, Kwinc, and Kelc. She told my mom several times how fun it was that there was a door inbetween the room that we always kept open. We took the girls to the Alpine Slide one night and they loved it. They all wanted to go again.

They had great instructors at the convention that some of you might have seen on "So you think you can dance." Sabra, Kameron and Nic were all teachers and they were darling with the kids. Brynlee thought it was so cool because she know Sabra. Sabra was my assisstant in all of my dance classes that I taught in Vegas. Bryns used to come to all of my classes with me and so she was so happy when Sabra remembered her. We had a great few days in Park City. It was so fun to laugh and have a good time and enjoy watching our little girls. I remember going to this camp when I was little. Now my Bryns is going. I can't believe how time flies.

THE 24th

We had a great day on the 24th. My mom and I took the kids to the pool during the day. Then that evening we had a barbeque and went over to Grandma and Grandpa Black's house to light fireworks. The kids had so much fun doing sparklers and helping Grandpa with all of the fireworks.

I have not been very good about taking pictures this summer. I am just enjoying being outside swimming and playing in the water with my kids. We go to the pool at the gym a lot and we are enjoying boating and our seven peaks passes!! Brynlee and Stock have gotten so much braver this year in the water!! Bryns offically learned how to swim this year. She is a little fish now and loves swimming. She can dive down to the bottom, do flips in the water and swim across the pool. She does something that she calls her princess dive but it is really a belly flop. OUCH! It really looks like it hurts but she does it over and over and seems to think it is really cool. Stockton has loved going down the slide and he will go under water this year. I worry that is swallowing half of the pool because he always has his mouth open smiling when he goes under the water. Beckham is just in heaven being at the pool and isn't afraid to try anything. He was the first to go down the slide at the pool and show his older brother and sister up. At that point they had no choice but to go down the slide so that there one year old brother wasn't making them look chicken. I love summer! I wish it would never end.

My sister in law Heather turned 25 last weekend! Heather has been such a sweet addition to our family! I always tell people that my brother was really lucky to find and marry Heather and it is so true. She is always so willing to help you with anything and everything. I remember when her and my brother were dating she stayed up until 3 am helping me make christmas presents for my mom and mother in laws. When I was pregnant with Beckham my brother and Heather drove all the way down to Vegas to put up bead board in my baby room. She stayed by Josh the whole time and helped him with everything. She is amazing!! She always has great advice on clothes, boys (ahhhh), etc. She is so easy to talk to. She is so crafty. She has such an eye for decorating and making everything look great! She is always to willing to help me with the kids and she is such a sweet aunt. She really gets down and plays with them. They all adore her. Beckham calls her Heathe and I think it is so cute!! She will be an amazing mom to this new sweet little girl that will bless our family!! I just want you to know how much I love you Heather and I am so blessed to have you as my sister in law!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
