So July has come and gone...I thought I should show you a few pics and give you an update. Brigham loves climbing into any basket or box he can find. This is supposed to hold shoes but he had Izzy join him and they found a perfect hang out!

Speaking of shoes...can you believe these are on Dave's feet? I KNOW!! Maybe my love of bling has worn off!
Seriously, he ran the Wasatch Back and then recruited McKenna to run the Freedom Festival run. He is amazing. He looks great and has really stuck with it. Given he threw a temper tantrum before the Wasatch Back because "running is so stupid and you would have to be a psycho to keep running. The thing is, if you want to take a break when you are biking you just coast but if you need a break from running what do you do? You keep running!" All that said...he is still running.

We went to the Balloon Fest and then the parade on the fourth. It was a bit of heaven to see all those balloons taking off.
We did a shopping day in Park City with my cute sistahs. Yah, they are adorable! Meg had already headed home so she is missing but we had a blast.
We had a week of swimming lessons which was a bit of heaven! Izzy actually stayed in the pool with very little screaming...

Then again, there was some persuasion! I gave the camera to McKenna and found this picture. It is perfect! It really is true life! Here are the details she caught of film....Izzy always, and I mean always, needs a little pep talk, much to my frustration...check out the hands! That's my cute friend fixing the swimsuit, don't we all do that over and over? Then in the background is Sydney carrying Brig away from the pool...TOO TYPICAL!!

Sydney loved the whole swimming thing, especially the slide after lessons and then there was McKenna my expert diver...So...that's July in a nutshell

What a fun blitz of a post. I love the photos--especially the one Kenna took of Izzy and you at the pool. And, Brigham is growing up so quickly.

I did not know Dave was running. Please tell him he is officially on my cool people list (all runners are automatically on it). It's great you go and watch and support him.

You and sisters are bea-u-ti-ful! You look so great in that photo.... looks like a lot of good times.
