DoG DaYz Of SuMmEr

I have not been very good at blogging all summer so the following is a very long post of our summer highlights!

Nelson and I at the Quick famlily reunion. Yes, Nelson has a big owie on his nose. He scraped off a good chunk of skin on the nightstand. He still has a big red spot on his nose and it has been over a month!


One Friday Jeremy decided we should take an impromptu trip to SLC. First thing we did was take the kids to Temple Square.


The main thing we wanted to do is go to Lagoon. At the beginning of the summer I won 2 Season passes to Lagoon on the radio! I was so excited. Jeremy and I were able to go by ourselves one day and I must say it was one of the funnest days of my life! And I was able to take a girls trip there which was also a huge blast! I was scared to take all my kids, but they had so much fun!
We only bought Jaxson a ride pass, but after watching Jaxson go on a few rides Alex insisted on going too. I was amazed at how brave he was.

Nelson pretty much sat in his stroller the whole time and did amazing! Of course, Jeremy gave him a Dr. Pepper to keep him happy! In fact, Jeremy's way of keeping Nelson happy on this whole trip was to give him our caffienated pop anytime he wanted. I was not very happy about that and I have had to retrain him since we have been home. Nelson has said very few words so far, pretty much mamma and daddy, but I am so proud to announce that now his favorite word to say is ........"POP"!

Alex had way to much fun!

We got to have Zac, Hannah, Miley, and Grady over one day and we all played in the water and a ton of fun. I was having fun taking girly pictures of Miley.

Zac said the water slide was soooo slow, then I told him to get his shirt wet and go down on his stomach and he didn't think it was "so slow" anymore!


Miley is such a little poser


My parents and my brother and sis-in-law were going camping to Island Park last week, but Jeremy had a way busy week at work so he was planning on taking me and the kids up by ourselves. Then poor little Nelson got a severe case of croup and we ended up taking him to the E.R. at 11 p.m. He wasn't getting any better with any of the treatments so they wanted to admit him. We spent all night and most of the next day at the hospital. We decide to just go camping a day late because nothings better for croup than the cold, crisp mountain air. He did great, but his breathing still sounds pretty terrible and its been over a week! Anyway, so the pics below are of our camping trip to Island Park.
This is actually on the last day when Jeremy came back up. I think the kids were pretty wore out and ready to go home!

Alex's favorite thing to do is throw rocks in the water.

Jaxson was looking for fish the whole time and then throwing rocks at them!

All the kids eating grampas cherry, chocolate cobbler. YUM!

One Dirty Kid!

Tired and dirty at the end of a long day!

Nelson loved sitting in the little campin' chairs. He looked so cute in them too!

Well, that about wraps up our summer. So now it's time for ..............


Jaxson is really lucky because his cousin(kinda, distantly) Dylan lives just around the corner and they get to walk to the bus stop together and be in the same class.
Dylan and Jaxson giggling.
Jaxson excited to see the bus coming.
And last, but not least......Nelson decided to make Jaxsons first day of school and extra memorable one by breaking all the eggs on the floor!

How could you get mad at that face?
