End of Summer.

I'm consistently playing 'catch-up' on the blog. Life just gets SO busy and at the end of the day blogging isn't always the most important thing, it is however fun to look back on the memories so I try hard to keep it up to date.

Summer is officially over, even the weather is starting to cool down (which I didn't think would ever happen). The kids finished out summer with a BANG!

They swam their little hearts out every chance they got.

Made memories with friends.

Went to the zoo.

Took a few different trips to Lagoon with their season passes.

 Played outside almost every day!

Had sleepovers in tents.

Of course, had a few photo shoots.
And meet princesses.

Titan wanted to do soccer again this year! He had a great Fall season and is excited for it to start again in the Spring! He also just signed up for Football! I think he has been waiting his whole life to play so now that it is finally here he couldn't be happier.

I got to compete in a National NPC Show (way back in July). I didn't get the placing I was hoping for but it totally motivated me to be 100% focused for my next show coming up in November! Crossing my fingers for that Pro Card!

And then summer came to an end and these kids started school. Titan headed to 1st grade this year. I was very nervous for him to go into first grade because he had such a hard time with Kindergarten. I thought that it would be even harder since he had to now be there all day long, but to my surprise he has loved it!

Miss Laikynn is still in pre-school for this year and next year. She only goes for about 2 hours a day so it is just enough to get her out of the house, learn new things and make fun friends!

My sisters and I recently went to the Luke Bryan concert. This was my third time seeing him in concert! The concert was an absolute BLAST! After the show was over, one of Luke's assistants came up to us and asked us if we wanted to go back stage to an after party with Luke. We pretty much freaked out and followed her back stage!! I not only got to meet Luke, but I got to hang out with him for awhile!!! Probably one of the coolest nights of my life!!

Then a week later, Devan came home and surprised me with Taylor Swift tickets!! I was so happy I started crying (partly because I got tickets and partly because it was such a sweet thing for Devan to do). I had been talking about the concert a TON weeks prior and how sad I was that the tickets sold out within 10 minutes!! So I was totally shocked when he showed me them!

& we're going to end this post with this adorable photo!

Summer Fun!

Summer is flying by. It seems that is always how it goes though, right? We are keeping VERY busy! Devan's work is ridiculously busy right now! He has been working crazy hours lately. It is a blessing, but we sure do miss him when he works long days! My work is also pretty crazy! Throw in training for a National NPC Show and we are pretty much going crazy!

We somehow find time for fun still. The kids pretty much live in the water! They are always either on the boat, at the pool or in the sprinklers.

Summer consists of lots of friends!

& Carnivals! 

& Parades!

Titan has a super busy summer! He is currently in Baseball, Hip-Hop, Break Dancing (his favorite one by far) & has tutoring to keep him on track over the summer.

Little Miss Laikynn started Dance and Tumbling! She loves tumbling the most but has a blast at both of them.

& Here is a super cute pic from Father's Day! :)

Growing up we didn't take very many vacations. If we did it was still in the state of Utah. My mom was a single mom, and although she would have loved to take us somewhere there just wasn't extra money lying around to go on vacation. My mom loves her little grand-kids more than anything and does so much for them that we thought it would be fun to surprise her with Disneyland tickets. But why stop there, we got the whole fam tickets to Disneyland for Christmas so we could all go out there together! Any Grandma's absolute dream I would imagine!

We ended up being at Disneyland for the 60th Celebration. We had originally planned on going to Disneyland on a Wednesday and Thursday to avoid the crowds, but once we heard about the celebration we switched around our plans and went opening day!

Disneyland and California Adventures were absolutely CRAZY on Friday! We figured everyone would be there all day long and then leave to go home late at night but it was the complete opposite. The park wasn't really too busy during the day but once 7:00 rolled around there was SO many people! Both parks were at maximum capacity and they weren't allowing people in. (Which sucked because if you left either park you couldn't get back in, even with your park hopper.)

Day one of Disney was magical. (Yep, I just said that.) The kids had so much fun!

Disneyland was so much fun this year because Laikynn was tall enough for almost all the rides! She even braved it out and went on Splash Mountain and Lightening McQueen Racer!

Our annual picture at Downtown Disney.

We rented a house for the week that was within walking distance of Disneyland. It was fun all being in the same house! The house had a pool in the back so the kids basically swam every waking moment.

We also did a beach day! The water was SO cold but the kids didn't even care!

Disneyland can be a lot of work for mom & dad, but totally worth it to make these kiddies happy!! We had a blast spending time together!
