Summer Vacation 2012 !!

 Our new favorite ice cream joint. They have the most delicious homemade ice cream. oh and Cheesecake too. Cheesecake Therapy. We went every Friday after school for waffle cones. The loveliest surroundings to enjoy your morsels!
 Dinner by the pool at Grandma and Grandpa's. 
 Another cool picnic in the mtns on a hot day with our favorite people. 
 This is called "road rash". You get it while riding on your skateboard on your belly and the skate board stops but you keep going. Not recommended.
 Summer was making sure the paramedics were doing their job correctly.
 The day after. 
 Steve and I steeled away to the most gorgeous wedding reception of our dear friends Emily Wood, Heritage Square. As always, the most beautiful decor. 
 Summer's most favorite position, just out of the pool with enough chips to for dinner.
 Hiking with the cousin at Red Rocks.
 The view from my side of our new tent. We can fit two queen mattresses on either ends and all of our children in between us. It's awesome! The kids love to wrestle instead of sleep.
 The boys took the diggers down Vail pass. It was touch and go there for a second. We didn't know if Cooper could fit his little hands around the breaks. Very important when you're going down a mountain. He did great and they rode down in twenty minutes. 
 Cooper is a mean squirttin' machine. He has no mercy!
 Mom took us up to see our friends who are serving a mission at Martin's Cove. They took us on a tour of the trek sight and we heard the most wonderful stories and saw the most beautiful countryside. 
 The kids got to drive the handcart around the parking lot.It was empty. Amazing that this was such a lifeline to the pioneers back then and now we are just doing it for fun? We are very grateful for their sacrifice. 
 Summer tried her hand at the mini one. She is very strong!
 This is the Sweetwater river where the pioneers crossed, it was six feet deep then. Now its not even one foot deep. This spot is where they do some baptism now.

 More Copper. This is at the top of the Mtn. where we stopped for picnic. It was 54 degrees. In denver at this very same moment it was 94 degrees.
 Fox in his favorite postion, upside down fifty feet in the sky.
We couldn't let our cousins go without one more stop at our most delicious New Saigon for LS1 and an avocado Boba. Heavon!!!!

What a great Summertime so far and we are only half over!
