Oh what do you do in the summertime?

What a summer! We played and played and had so much fun! Andrew got more vacation time at work after hitting 10 years, so we took advantage of it and have taken more fun trips and had lots of fun the last few months.

Oregon in April, visiting Brianna's family. Hillary, Andrew's sister, got married in April as well! Then, in June we went to Colorado to visit Jessica's birth families and oh, how we love them! It was a great visit and we are so glad we were able to go. Later that month we had a family reunion with Brianna's extended family in Ephraim. And then the big one...Seaside beach in Oregon!

We had a lot of normal summer days too...heading to the water park, playing mini golf, or hanging out at home in our pajamas until lunch time. Jessica and I have perfected that last one! Add in a few fishing trips with dad, a backyard campout, trip to the zoo, and a belly flop contest (that was Andrew...he even got an Elvis wig for it!) and we had a fabulous summer! Now, it is back to school and a real schedule, which is nice, but I'm already missing our care free days and my little buddy (who is already in first grade!)

Now that you got a brief summary, here are the pictures. Hooray for pictures!

Hillary and Claudio's wedding with all of Andrew's immediate family.

Colorado trip...Garden of the Gods. It was SO amazing!

Family Reunion's with Brianna's extended family always involve mud, Ephraim mountains, and four wheelers.
Feeding Grandma's goats with cousins
Seaside Candyman! Look at all that taffy! 

Tillamook factory...Jessica wanted a picture with the cow, Tilly, and just sat down and pretended to milk her. Ha!

My brother's family joined us for a few hours one day and we got to feed the seals at the aquarium. So fun!

One night we built a campfire on the beach to roast hot dogs and smores. Why have we never done this before?

Fun at the zoo with cousins!

Andrew's belly flop contest outfit for the All Together Playground...his name was The King Salmon. It turned out more like a Knee Flop but oh well, I'm glad he was brave enough to do it!
