Picture of the Week: Evening Family Walks Are the Best

Grace had an orthodontist appointment on Monday where we found out that we needed to keep turning her expander for another three weeks. Perry and Charley made friends in the waiting room, while they waited for Gracie.

That night I asked Perry how much she loved me, and her reply was, "4".

After work on Tuesday, we went for a walk up the hill to the water tower. It was storming around us, and there was a pretty rainbow that kept getting brighter as we went.

This hill is so tough. We definitely have a love/hate relationship with it. The kids only went half way and then stopped to watch me go by myself.

Charley went back to the hill with me on Wednesday and went all the way to the top this time.

We played outside on Thursday, and Perry wanted to ride her scooter. She loves to play on this thing and asks every time we get home, "can I play outside for a yittle bit?".

When we went inside, we worked on colors, and I…

Picture of the Week: Escaping the Heat at Mount Charleston

Grandma Sunshine took the girls to Mount Charleston on Monday to celebrate Grace's birthday. They had a picnic and kicked around a soccer ball. It was a nice escape from the heat, and the girls had so much fun!

That night, we made sausage and peppers for dinner, and Perry loved to watch them bake in the oven.

She has been obsessed with Baby Shark lately, and the rest of us are so over it.

We got to school early almost every day this week and had to wait in the car for it to open. We passed the time by playing with face filters on my phone.

Perry brought home the cutest Fourth of July handprint and colored an American flag for us to hang on the fridge.

Charley made this video where you are supposed to do something to earn points. She couldn't figure it out and got so mad at the end. Isaac and I watched this over and over, laughing harder each time.

We celebrate the Fourth of July at the Westin pool with our friends, an…

Sun, Swimming, and Fireworks

Our Fourth of Julys almost always include a pool day followed by fireworks. This year we got a cabana at The Westin Lake Las Vegas (thanks Elisha!) and invited our friends to join us for a day of fun in the sun.

Every time we come here, the girls always devour the fruit basket immediately. They didn't change their tune this time, and it was gone before we even made it to the water.

After a few minutes in to upper pool, the kids were ready for the water slide, and we made our way downstairs to the lower pool. Perry did so well swimming around on her own with her puddle jumper on.

She loved the water slide and would yell "again!" every time we took her down it.

We swam for a while before heading back to the cabana for some lunch. Perry was being a cheeseball, and her little baby curls looked so sweet.

The Sebastians arrived, and it was back to the slide where the kids went down over and over again.

We spent most of the day at the pool, so all of the girls fell asleep on t…
