Summer Vacations

We have really had a fun month. A busy one, but full of a lot of travel and family time. My favorite things!

A few weeks ago, Scarlet, Courtney, and I headed up to Heber, Utah for the extended Earl family reunion. We got to stay and Ernie and Sylvia Smith's home up there. It was seriously nice. Not only was it enormous but it was by far the cleanest, most organized home I had ever been in. It was immaculate. Not the kind of house one feels to comfortable bringing their one year old in. Luckily they had the most adorable built in toy area in their basement that kept Scarlet occupied.

We had such a great time chatting with everyone. My younger cousins and Kendall kept taking off with Scarlet for hours at a time which was so awesome. What a nice break. On Sunday, we got to go over to Cali's and chat some more. Sadly, at some point, Scarlet's face found the pavement.

These are from Kristy's cell phone. It actually looked even worse up close. For a week, people would see her in the store or wherever we were and say, "wow you took a bad fall didn't you?" Makes you feel like a really good mom inside...

Luckily I'm still pretty sure she had a great time.

We also got to jet off to California for the weekend. We were in need of some beach time before the summer was over. I was a little concerned that Scarlet wouldn't enjoy the beach as much as the rest of us but I greatly underestimated the fun and amusement of digging in the sand. The surf was a little rough for her (perfect for Jon) but with plastic spoon, water bottle, or random trash in hand, she was extremely excited to dig and throw sand. Now she has the cutest little swim suit tan line. Thank goodness she got her dad's skin.
We did a horrible job taking picture of the trip. But here are a few.
When we got back, Brandon Earl and his girlfriend and Britney and Jason were in town. They came over Sunday night and we had a great time catching up with them.
Now our summer seems to be wrapping up. With baby number two on his way in a few weeks we are probably done traveling for awhile. Back to work on the house!

Did you cut yourself out of those pictures? I would so not be happy with you if you did. I don't know a cuter prego lady than yourself. I am glad you had a good time. I have to admit that I am glad you are back and we can do some play dates. We'll see you tomorrow.

k so I want to know where your pictures are of you fully pregnant. Don't be embarrassed to post them we all hate how we look and yes we are all fat, but that is what being pregnant is all about. So come on fork them over!! Since by the time I see you, you will probably already have your baby. I hope not, but probably!! Can't wait for September even if I only get to see you in the hospital!!

We didn't get too many pictuers either. Scott was going to download the ones we have. We do have a lot of Scarlet chugging that Jamba Juice!

We put the pictures we had on our blog. Scarlet cracks me up every time I see a picture of her, she is so cute!
