Summer BBQ

We had our friends, The Penrose's, over for a summer BBQ. We had a wonderful dinner and some fun in the pool.

All the kids and big kids jumped in at the same time. They wanted to see how much water they could splash out.
Poor Jayda was clueless. She just rode the tidal wave.
After spending some time swimming. They decided to relax in the spa.

Jayda just loves being in the pool. She just floated around in her raft and enjoyed the show.
We love having our friends over to enjoy the pool. The more the merrier...that's our philosphy!

Mogollon Rim

Getting away from the heat is a hard task to do right now. It has been so hot. We took a short road trip up North to the Mogollon Rim. It was much cooler and we really enjoyed our time. Here are some pictures of our trip.

The kids had a fun time building forts.

Jayda enjoyed hanging out. She loves being outdoors.

After a little fun on our way out we saw a herd of elk grazing near the road.

We hope to take another trip soon to go camping. We'll keep you posted.

Fossil Creek Springs

I took all 3 kids hiking to Fossil Creek Springs. It was a beautiful hike to a swimming hole and waterfall. The kids had a great time swimming but the hike was soooo long. It turned out to be 8 miles round trip. Wow...it was long. It took us all day and I thought I was going to die carrying Jayda out of that canyon. We made it and here are some pictures.
The kids swinging from a rope swing!

Jayda chillin' after swimming in the water hole. The kids and I hanging out!

I hope to go back there some day, but I think I'll wait until Jayda can walk herself! I've learned my lesson.
